As we can see, there remains a four-year gap between season three and season four. This is common in anime series, due to the intense and intricate nature of the art. Anime series tend to take time to develop since every single frame has to be carefully drafted. This may be one of the reasons why the second half of the season has been postponed.
Furthermore, as we are all aware, the coronavirus pandemic has put a halt to everyone’s daily life and livelihood. As of now, new release dates haven’t been announced, but we’re confident the 12 episodes second half is well underway and should be here in no time.
