Crayon Shin-chan Movie 29: Mystery Meki! Hana no Tenkasu Gakuen will not be premiering this Friday as scheduled, due to the corona-virus pandemic.
The delay was announced through the movie’s official website and Twitter account.
A new premiere date has not yet been announced.
The decision came following the latest surge of COVID-19 cases in Japan.
The Japanese government is considering a state of emergency for Tokyo and Osaka, according to NHK.
The Mainichi newspaper reported that Tokyo Governor, Yuriko Koike, is preparing to declare an emergency period from the end of April to early May, which will include Japan’s annual holiday period, ‘Golden Week’.
