The episode was abruptly interrupted by a 4.6 magnitude earthquake in Japan.
Another episode of Attack on Titan aired on March 14, but was discontinued. It was later announced that the overseas release of Episode 73 was delayed at the last minute due to a 4.6 magnitude earthquake in Japan’s Wakayama prefecture. The episode was in the middle when the earthquake struck and it was taken off the air for breaking news coverage. As expected, the episode will not air anywhere until it finishes airing in Japan.
New release date
Updates came yesterday on the show’s Twitter page that episode 73 will air in a few days, on March 21 to be exact. That’s right, it will air just before episode 74, the final episode of the season, so fans will have a lot to take in that week. Although the subtitled version was delayed, the dubs for episode 68 were timely released on March 15.
Episode 73- Wicked (Minor Spoilers)
The episode, titled “Evil”, showed Eren face to face with Mikasa, Armin, and the other scout members at the restaurant run by Nicolo. Eren has now embraced his antihero persona, on the verge of villain, as he and the Jaegerists stormed the restaurant and took everyone hostage. A tense conversation ensues between him, Mikasa, Armin, and Gabi, where the latter three get to hear some harsh words from Eren.
On the other hand, Captain Levi is having his own problems with Eren’s half-brother Zeke, also known as the Titan Beast within the deep forests.
Those who wish to remain intact regarding the new episode, know the exercise. Stay away from all things Attack on Titan until new episodes come out on March 21.
