Earlier today, the official Long Riders! anime website updated to announce that the show’s fifth episode was delayed. Due to production issues, the episode will be pushed back by a week to November 19.

This is the second delay that Long Riders! faced. Last month, the show’s third episode also saw a one-week delay. The episode was moved from October 22 to October 29, and a repeat of the first episode aired in the slot.
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.
