Natural disasters have often made human life difficult. Japan, in general, is prone to earthquakes, typhoons, and tsunamis. A 5.9 magnitude quake is no laughing matter and prevents citizens from going about their regular lives.
The episode “Whereabouts of the Six Generals” and the season 4 finale didn’t air as the Japanese had to endure an earthquake yesterday. The next broadcast time and date haven’t been mentioned yet, but the NHK will keep the audiences informed.
The quake primarily affected southwestern Japan, and no tsunami alert has been issued yet. At around 12:02 am (JST), places like Miyazaki, Ehime, Saga, Kumamoto, Oita, Kagoshima, and Kyushu were shaken because of the quake that originated 30 kilometers deep adjacent to the Osumi Peninsula.
Police reported that no injuries and deaths had been recorded so far. The Sendai nuclear power plant at Kagoshima and the Kyushu Electric Power Grid is still fully operational. We can only hope that the innocent citizens suffer from little to no damage and pray for their well-being.
Although the finale hasn’t premiered on NHK General TV and NHK BS Premium yet, Crunchyroll has already uploaded the episode. If you have a subscription, feel free to check out the episode.
