It looks like the trip to Ami’s next stop has a bit further to go.

Earlier today, the official Long Riders! anime Twitter account announced that the show’s third episode will be delayed. The installment, titled The New World, was pushed back to October 29, due to irreconcilable production difficulties.

Rough Translation: Due to production concerns, we are postponing the broadcast and distribution of episode 3. We greatly apologize for the inconvenience to you, who were looking forward to it. Episode 3, “The New World”, will air on 10/29.



The show’s first episode will air in lieu of the newest installment.

Long Riders! is based on Taishi Miyake’s manga of the same name. Tatsuya Yoshihara (Yatterman Night, Monster Musume) is helming the project at Studio Actas (Girls und Panzer), with Jiemon Futsuzawa on character design duty. Natsuko Takahashi (My Love Story!!, Tokyo Magnitude 8.0) is in charge of series composition.

Daisuki currently streams Long Riders! as part of their Fall 2016 lineup. They describe the show as:
