Madoka Magica's Airing, Streaming Delayed 'For Now' (Updated)

posted on by Egan Loo
1st 5 DVD/BD volumes each delayed one month

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.
