The first official trailer of Uzumaki, a Japanese horror Manga series written and illustrated by Junji Ito has released. Which is an anime television series adaptation by Production I.G U.S.A. and Adult Swim, and is scheduled to premiere in October 2022 in the United States on Adult Swim’s Toonami programming block before Japan. The anime will be produced entirely in Black and White.
In this Trailer, director Hiroshi Nagahama and Adult Swim Executive Producer Jason DeMarco shared the news that Uzumaki was forced to be delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic which brought them to change the animation productions. According to Nagahama, the COVID-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on the world of Japanese anime, especially when it comes to Uzumaki.
Nagahama admitted that the show was forced to reconstruct their initial plan, and need to hire even more animators. Because of this, the show needed to be delayed but is making progress towards being completed. While some fans might not be happy about that, but it shows that detail of complicated manga has been progressing and seems looking very good which is enough visual to keep them excited for the new release. Uzumaki is now scheduled to release in October 2022.
