In addition, Kodansha noted that some manga in its Comic Days, Magazine Pocket, and Palcy digital manga services will have delayed updates.

Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe declared a state of emergency in seven prefectures last Tuesday, including Osaka and Hyogo (both neighbors to Kyoto) and Tokyo. The governor of Kyoto Prefecture stated on Friday that he has asked the Japanese government to add Kyoto to the list of prefectures that are placed under a state of emergency. The governor of Aichi prefecture similarly asked the Japanese government on Thursday to add that prefecture to the list, and then independently declared a state of emergency on Friday. Hokkaido declared a second state of emergency on Sunday.

The seven prefectures will remain under a state of emergency until May 6.
