The 19th episode of Megaton Musashi (sixth of the second season) is getting delayed from this week to December 2. An official tweet says that this is to ensure the quality of the show.

Megaton Musashi Season 2 premiered on October 7. Its first season aired during the previous year’s fall anime season and ran for 13 episodes. 

The show is set on an Earth where 99.9% of humans have been wiped out by an extraterrestrial threat. As the aliens carry out terraforming, humanity is forced to retreat into shelters. The inhabitants of Shelter Ixia have their memories of the invasion erased and live normal lives in ignorance. However, among the inhabitants are “chosen ones” who become pilots of a robot called Rogue, with their purpose being to battle against the aliens. The story involves the selection of a new pilot.

Like the first season, Megaton Musashi Season 2’s staff includes Shigeharu Takahashi (Youkai Watch Jam – Eiga Youkai Gakuen Y: Neko wa Hero ni Nareruka) as director, Takuzou Nagano (Megaton Musashi game) as the original character designer, Yuuji Ikeda (Inazuma Eleven: Orion no Kokuin) as character designer, and Ken’ichirou Saigou (Yo-kai Watch) as music composer. OLM is the animation production company.

Level-5 game designer Toshihiko Kuriaki is credited for the anime’s concept art, while Level-5 CEO Akihiro Hino is credited as original creator, series composer, chief director, and scriptwriter.

Meanwhile, the cast includes Toshiki Masuda as Yamato Ichidaiji, Shunsuke Takeuchi as Ryugo Hijikata, Souma Saitou as Teru Asami, Kouki Uchiyama as Reiji Amemiya, Sumire Morohoshi as Jun Kirishima, Megumi Han as Momoka Saotome, Ayumu Murase as Kota Akutagawa, and Yuuki Kaji as Takumi Kindaichi.

The anime is a part of a multimedia project which includes an RPG game by Level-5 as well as toys and comics. The game and its six DLCs are being included in an upcoming free-to-play release called Megaton Musashi X, which includes new story content, online PvP, new robots, and other additions. Megaton Musashi X will launch in Japan on December 16 for PS5, PS4, and Switch.

Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive.
