The first episode of Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai! Ren, the second Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions! (Chūnibyō demo Koi ga Shitai!) anime season, was leaked online at least half a day before its Japanese television premiere. A video was hosted at the Chinese website tv.sohu.com, although the region-locked video has since been removed. The first episode is scheduled to premiere on the Tokyo MX TV and Sun TV stations on Wednesday at 0:30 (effectively on Thursday at 12:30 a.m.)
The first Space Dandy episode leaked on Friday before its worldwide premiere, and Oceania anime distributor Madman Entertainment previously held up its streaming of the Kill la Kill anime series after a similar leak. The second episode of Oreimo was leaked from Anime News Network in 2010 and subsequently pulled before resuming a month later. Funimation's One Piece and Phantom~ Requiem for the Phantom streams were compromised and leaked in 2009. Part of a Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion R2 episode leaked from Bandai Channel five days before its official airing in 2008.
