The release date for the upcoming anime adaptation is unfortunately delayed
Unfortunately, the highly anticipated upcoming Uzumaki horror anime series has just announced a delay to the scheduled release date in October.
From Hollywood to Bollywood, global entertainment was shaken by the coronavirus pandemic, and the anime industry was no exception; but with two years of delays, there is perhaps no other anime that was hit harder by the pandemic than Uzumaki.
The horror anime is the much-anticipated adaptation of the iconic manga series of the same name by Junji Ito, which has been branded as the “scariest manga there is” by MyM. The adaptation was scheduled to premiere in October on Adult Swim’s Toonami block, but the release date has unfortunately just been delayed – here’s all you need to know.
The Uzumaki anime series is guaranteed to scare the fans pointless
At the Crunchyroll Expo event in 2019, the four-part anime adaptation of the Uzumaki manga series was revealed to be in production.
The limited series would be a co-production between Drive, Production IG USA and Adult Swims William Street Production Studio.
At the time of writing, several videos and teaser videos have been published online, and while Uzumaki’s story is scary, the only black and white images for anime are guaranteed to attract attention.
The series tells the story of Kirie Goshima, her boyfriend Shuichi Saito and their neighbors in the small town of Kurouzu-cho. The city may seem picturesque on the outside, but its inhabitants are constantly haunted by supernatural events involving spirals.
The young couple is witnessing friends and family go crazy, with several horrific deaths that significantly affect how they view this spiral phenomenon and the subsequent hauntings. Will they be able to survive long enough to find out this mystery?
Uzumaki release date unfortunately delayed from October 2022
By July 2020, the voice crew had begun recording dialogue lines, but it was only a matter of time before the coronavirus pandemic began to affect production; postpone the release date by about one year.
Unfortunately, the series premiere was delayed once again, with a new teaser (see below) that reveals that the targeted launch window was now set for October 2022.
However, it has just been that revealed that the series’ launch will unfortunately be delayed once again, with the production team posting on the project’s Twitter page that “Thanks to everyone for their interest, and positive comments about our Uzumaki anime adaptation. Unfortunately, the release date for the series has to be postponed again.”
“In order to recreate the quality of the intricate designs and the detailed line work of Mr Ito’s classic manga, director Nagahama and the production team have asked for extra time to recreate Ito’s masterpieces in the right way. As much as we want to deliver this show to the audience as soon as possible, we do not want to compromise on quality by delivering a mediocre end product. We are still fully committed to completing this work of the highest caliber. – Uzumaki production team, via Twitter.
The message then ends with “We will return with a fixed premiere date when we are sure that this adaptation is as good as we know it can be. Thank you for your patience and support. “
