Due to special programming in Japan covering the volcanic activity in Tonga, World Trigger episode 14 has been delayed. The new broadcast date will be shared once available.

It is worth mentioning that the anime was not the only one affected. Other Japanese television programs were postponed so that the media could cover the natural phenomenon. This was the most sensible, since in 8 prefectures up to 220,000 people had to be evacuated and storm surges of up to 1.2 meters were recorded.
Fortunately, so far no injuries or major incidents related to these natural phenomena have been reported in Japan.
