We are sending our love to the residents there.
This suspension is a vital one as it will allow locals in Japan with the most latest news and development on the earthquake and its impact. This tragedy is very distressing as many are comparing it to the disaster of 2011. The devastating blow shattered the area on March 11, 2011. Now, few days following its tenth anniversary, Japan has experienced another earthquake.
As of now, there is no information on when Attack on Titan will be able to broadcast episode 73 in its entirety. We will share any updates on the same soon. Till then stay safe, stay tuned and keep supporting us. Our prayers are with those in Japan affected by the earthquake today.
