As we reported last week, Fuji TV’s schedule was thrown off track by an entire week due to news coverage of the horrific earthquake that hit Japan. Fuji TV has finally released their updated TV schedule for the next two weeks, and it now appears they are sticking to the schedule they originally announced back in December: Toriko will in fact be taking over Dragon Ball Kai‘s time slot on 03 April 2011. So now the question stands: will episode 98 of Kai ever see the light of day?
As of now there has been no official word concerning the fate of the episode. It may be broadcast at a later date, or it may only be available on the final Blu-ray box set and DVD home releases. Maybe it will not be released at all with the recent music fiasco. In all honesty, we just do not know. This is definitely a situation no one wanted to see happen, but we will keep you posted as more information becomes available.
