Regalia Anime Halts Broadcast After Episode 4, Will Restart Airing in September
posted on by Rafael Antonio Pineda
The official website for Infinite's Regalia: The Three Sacred Stars original television anime series announced on Thursday that the anime will cease broadcast and streaming after its fourth episode (airing on Thursday), and will launch again on September 1. (The restart date will vary depending on the station.) The anime will restart on all television stations that are currently airing the show, although the new television run will start again from the first episode.
The announcement cited the reason for the temporary cessation of the broadcast as there being a "recognizable difference between the show's planned quality [and the current quality]." The announcement further explained that because it is difficult to cancel the production, the staff will adjust the structure and schedule of the production in order to deliver a better product.
Due to the halt in the current broadcast, the Blu-ray Disc and DVD home video release of the anime will be delayed by one month. The first volume of the home video release was scheduled for November 2.
The anime premiered on AT-X on July 7, and also airs on BS Fuji, Tokyo MX, and Sun TV. Funimation is streaming the series as it airs in Japan.
In the show's story, 12 years ago, in the country of Rimguard, a big incident left an unsolved mystery that has begun to fade from people's memories. Time passes, and sisters Yui and Rena are living peacefully in the Enastria Empire. However, one day, a large mecha attacks Enastria. This day marks the turning point when the two girls get caught in the vortex of fate.

QP:flapper is handling the original character design, Kimitake Nishio (Moetan, ToHeart2) is serving as the chief animation director and is adapting those designs for animation, and Kanta Suzuki (Buddy Complex) is handling the mechanical design.
