Sword Art Online Airing Delays

Jul 23, 2012

The official website for Sword Art Online has posted a revised airing date for the series. Both TV Aichi and Mainichi Broadcasting will schedule delays in airing for the anime series to give way for the London 2012 Olympics.

The revised schedule is as follows:

TV Aichi

  • EPISODE 4: 2012/7/28, 25:50→ 2012/8/4, 25: 50
  • EPISODE 5: 2012/8/4, 25:50 → 2012/8/4, 26:20
    Episode 4 and 5 will be aired on August 4. The initially scheduled timeslot for Episode 5 will be moved to 30-minutes later, to give way for Episode 4 airing.
  • EPISODE 6: 2012/8/11, 25:50 → 2012/8/11, 26:06
    Episode 6 might be aired 30 minutes (at the most) later than initially scheduled.

 

Mainichi Broadcasting

  • EPISODE 6: 2012/8/11, 27:28 → 2012/8/18, 28:28
    Episode 6 will be moved to the following week, airing an hour later than its initial timeslot.
  • EPISODE 7: 2012/8/25, 27:28 → 2012/8/25, 27:58
  • EPISODE 8: 2012/8/25, 27:28 → 2012/8/25, 28:28
    Episodes 7 and 8 are bumped a week later, due to episode 6′s airdate change. Both 7 & 8 will be aired on the 25th to catch up.

For those downloading fansubs with raws coming from these channels, expect your Sword Art Online releases to be delayed a week, particularly episodes 4 (from TV Aichi), and Episodes 6-8 (from Mainichi). The other pre-empted timeslots will barely affect general fansub releases.
