The official website for the Uncle From Another World anime has announced that the series’ fifth episode and beyond have been delayed, due to rapid increases in COVID-19 infections within Atelier Pontdarc and other studios involved in the anime’s production. The anime has now rescheduled the fifth episode for August 17, 2022, with the sixth and seventh episode airing on August 24 and 31, 2022, respectively. The anime’s first and second episode will rerun on August 3 and 10, 2022, respectively.

The series is described as:

17 years ago, Takafumi’s uncle fell into a coma, but now he’s back like a man risen from his grave. Soon, Takafumi discovers two bizarre things: His uncle treasures video games above all else, and, while comatose, he was actually transported to another world as some heroic guardian. Now, not only does Takafumi have to room with an uncle who is literally magical, he also has to catch the guy up on two decades of history—smartphones, high-speed internet, modern anime tropes… and the traumatic outcome of the ’90s console war.

Uncle From Another World premiered worldwide on Netflix on July 6, 2022.
