No other anime airing right now can quite compare to the unique and uplifting energy of Gal & Dino. Based on the Moriko Mori and Cota Tomimura manga of the same name, the anime blends stylish 2D animation, adorable 3D animations, and bizarre live-action scenes into an adorable amalgamation of happy, silly, and outright hilarious perfection. It’s the kind of hopeful and happy show we need right now, but unfortunately, it’s also the latest anime to be negatively impacted by COVID-19. We’ve already seen numerous anime projects delayed and postponed due to the ongoing concerns over the spread of the deadly virus, like Sword Art Online: Alicization War of Underworld and the currently running Pokémon anime series. Now, Gal & Dino has also been delayed indefinitely due to the devastating virus.
Announced by the official Twitter account for the anime series, the delay of future episodes for Gal & Dino will go into effect after episode 7 airs on Saturday, May 16th, as scheduled. The announcement cites the reason for the delay is the fact that the coronavirus disease is making multiple parts of the production process difficult. After episode 7 airs, the series will start to rerun its first five episodes on May 23rd. Currently, the official website, Twitter account, and Instagram for the series plan to announce when the anime will be able to resume new episodes.
Gal to Kyoryu is based on the adorably simple and zany manga of the same name. The story begins with fashionable gyaru Kaede finding a cute blue dinosaur and deciding to make it her new roommate. Together, her and the dinosaur eat junk food, watch TV, and gossip about fashion. The manga was launched by married couple Mori and Tomimura in Kodansha’s Young Magazine in October 2018. The third compiled volume of the series was published by Kodansha last week.
Tomimura has created several other manga series that are known for their honest and inclusive LGBT content, such as the four-panel essay manga Bokutachi LGBT (We are LGBT) and Jitsuroku! Tō-san Densetsu (Reality! Dad’s Legend). Mori, meanwhile, is also responsible for the Sayonara, High School manga that currently runs on Akita Publishing’s Manga Cross website.
