The English Dub of The Rising of the Shield Hero Anime Will Have a Two Week Delay on Crunchyroll

Crunchyroll has announced that its streaming of The Rising of The Shield Hero anime’s English dub will have a two week delay, beginning with the show’s 19th episode until the end of the show’s second half, due to “unforeseen circumstances.” The new schedule for the dub is:

  • Episode 19 – May 19, 2019
  • Episode 20 – June 5, 2019
  • Episode 21 – June 12, 2019
  • Episode 22 – June 19, 2019
  • Episode 23 – June 26, 2019
  • Episode 24 – July 3, 2019
  • Episode 25 – July 10, 2019

The series premiered with a two hour special on January 9, 2019 and will run for 25 episodes. Crunchyroll is simulcasting the series as it airs in Japan. The series was scheduled to launch on Crunchyroll with English subtitles on January 9, 2019, but Crunchyroll streamed the first 45-minute English-subtitled episode early on January 5, 2019.

Crunchyroll and FUNimation Entertainment originally announced plans to debut the English dub on January 9, 2019, the same day the show premiered on Japanese television. However, the staff announced on January 8, 2019 that the dub would be delayed. The first six dubbed episodes then premiered on February 13, 2019, and subsequent dubbed episodes debuted on the same days as the English-subtitled episodes until now.
