posted on by Egan Loo
The official website of the Puella Magi Madoka Magica television anime series announced on Wednesday that the future airings and streams of the anime have been delayed "for now." Any news about the resumption of broadcasts or streams will be announced on the official website.
In addition, each of the first five Blue-ray Disc and DVD volumes have been delayed one month:
|Volume||Old Date||New Date|
|Volume 1||March 30||April 27|
|Volume 2||April 27||May 25|
|Volume 3||May 25||June 22|
|Volume 4||June 22||July 27|
|Volume 5||July 27||August 24|
The staff have already revealed that they have been working on episodes 11 and 12, and the 11th episode was scheduled to be streamed this week before the announcements. However, the official website does not list a Blu-ray or DVD release for the volume containing these episodes. The third volume of the manga version has also been delayed to a date to be announced.
Update: The official Twitter account of the anime reports that while the regular broadcast has changed, the staff is still aiming for April to get through the final episode.
