Episode 11 of Kekkai Sensen aired on 20 June 2015. One would expect episode 12 (the last episode) to have aired a week later, on 27 June 2015. That... did not happen.

At present (17 Aug 2015), the last episode still hasn't aired. This is hugely abnormal - the last time I recall a delay of this magnitude this happening was when the Tohoku earthquake hit back in March 2011 and delayed the last few episodes of a number of winter 2011 shows.

Why is episode 12 over a month delayed?

  • Wish I would have came across this question back when things were airing lol Nov 4 '17 at 22:48

The current reason listed on the show's website (link in Japanese) is that the final episode is planned to be longer than the 30 minute time slot it was originally allotted. The production committee has postponed the airing of the 12th episode until further notice (perhaps as they attempt to secure a longer time slot), when its Twitter and official pages will be updated with the decided date.

  • Is that mean we more to be likely get a movie instead normal animation because it will be more than 30 min for episode 12 ? Aug 18 '15 at 5:55

    That wasn't mentioned, but I'd expect something more along the lines of a double episode, like Fate/Zero's pilot. They're only wrapping it up, so a movie seems excessive. Aug 18 '15 at 5:58

    Yup, they announced today-ish that it's going to be a double-length episode (46 minutes), initially airing Oct 3.
