Whisper Me A Love Song Episodes 9 and 10 Delayed

Article at a glance:

  • Episodes 9 and 10 of “Whisper Me a Love Song” are delayed by two weeks with no official reason given by the studio.
  • The delays disrupt the airing schedule, leaving the final episodes 11 and 12 uncertain as a new show takes over the TV slot in July.
  • Episode 8 faced a slight delay but is now available; recap episodes will fill the gap during the two-week delay.

Now, this came out of nowhere. I was aware that this anime was originally scheduled for the Winter 2024 season release. But it was pushed back to the Spring 2024 season starting from April because of the original director’s health. So the director was replaced and the anime was delayed. That makes sense. What I don’t get is why Episodes 9 and 10 of Whisper Me a Love Song are delayed now. And these were clearly unplanned delays. Why do I say that? Well, I will elaborate on it.

So welcome back to another news article. Although, admittedly this is one of those rare news articles where I am not at all happy to report the news. But still, we gotta talk about Whisper Me a Love Episodes 9 and 10 getting delayed and what it means for the final episodes. So let’s get into it.

Why were episodes 9 and 10 of Whisper Me a Love Song delayed?

Well, as odd as it sounds, we have no official word from the Studio on the delays. Episode 8 was slightly delayed too, but it is out now. You can go and watch it right now. But Episodes 9 and 10 are delayed by two weeks. In the meantime, the anime will air recap episodes to fill in the blank TV slots. Normally, this would be fine. But in this case, there is a further complication.

Since the TV slot for the anime was reserved for 12 weeks (12 episodes), a new show will take up its slot starting in July. So taking the two-week delay into account, only episodes up to 9 and 10 will get the regular airing. This leaves Episodes 11 and 12 in a weird limbo. They can’t air them at the regular time as the slot will be taken up by a new show. So it remains unknown what will happen to the last two episodes of the anime. They will air them at some point for sure but I can’t say when.

My thoughts

I am really sad to report this. I understand that a studio will never willingly delay episodes unless it is a planned break. Their livelihood depends on it after all. This was not a planned delay as it sent the whole airing schedule into disarray. So something serious must have happened at the studio for them to do something like this, right? No one does things like this for no reason. While as a fan of the anime, I am quite sad to see this but I still just hope that everything at the studio is alright. Animators don’t get paid enough as is.

That is all for now

I’ll keep you updated if something comes up. Again, while I am sad to see an anime I like to fall into disarray like this, I sincerely hope that everything in the studio is alright. Animation is a very thankless job as is, I don’t want to make it worse by blaming the studio. Let me know what you guys think in the comments. I will take my leave here. See ya!
