The third season of My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, subtitled Climax, set to air on April 9, has been delayed thanks to the novel coronavirus pandemic.
According to Crunchyroll, which licenses the anime for North America, the show was postponed because of the COVID-19 outbreak.
The tweet reads: “We’re sad to announce that it has been decided that ‘My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU Climax‘, which was set to air this spring, has been postponed due to the spread of the new coronavirus. We ask for your understanding at this time.”
Japan declared a national State of Emergency on Tuesday thanks to the pandemic.
A new air date has not yet been released, Crunchyroll says. The first two seasons remain available on the streaming platform.
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU follows the exploits of the reclusive Hachiman Hikigaya, whose disinterest in making friends or creating high school experiences is thwarted after joining –under the coercion of a faculty member– a “Services Club” run by the attractive, popular, and intelligent Yukino Yukinoshita. Additionally, there is Yui Yuigahama, a bright and cheerful girl who demands the club’s assistance in baking cookies, which will ultimately serve as a catalyst for many romantic misadventures to come.
