Singapore-based anime licensor MUSE Asia has announced on Wednesday that it will cut short their simulcast streaming of Diary of our Days at the Breakwater anime series.
The anime’s production committee explains on their official website that the show’s broadcast will be cut short due to production delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, and the production has only reached until the third episode.
The company explains that they will air Episode 3 on its regular streaming schedule, but subsequent episodes will be aired at a later date. The first episode premiered on Tuesday, April 7.
Hina is an indoor-oriented girl who likes crafts and moves to a seaside town to continue with her high school education. She meets upperclassman Kuroiwa as she walks along an embankment and joins the mysterious “Embankment Club.” Hina dislikes sea creatures, but she fishes with her fellow club members and eats their catches. She gradually starts to appreciate the appeal of the ocean. (Synopsis from Anime News Network)

The remaining simulcast lineup, such as Arte, Gal & Dino, Shachibato! President, It’s Time for Battle!, Shironeko Project: Zero Chronicle, ARGONAVIS from BanG Dream! and Ascendance of a Bookworm S2, are pushing through with their streaming on the company’s YouTube channel.
