Fridays is Golden Wind day but, uhh, just not this Friday, May 3. Ordinarily, if the show was following its usual schedule, the JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind episode 29 air date would be May 3 at 10:05 AM Pacific/1:05 PM Eastern/6:05 PM BST on Crunchyroll.

However, the studio has, instead, decided to place that old anime trope smack-bang in the middle of Golden Week: the dreaded recap episode.

Listed as a “28.5” rather than an outright JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind episode 29, the recap will air May 3 and, presumably, the next full episode, 29, will release on May 10 at 10:05 AM Pacific/1:05 PM Eastern/6:05 PM BST.

Why is there a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind episode 29 delay?

There’s been no official reason given as to why there’s a JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure Golden Wind episode 29 delay, but we’ve got a few theories.

It’s currently Golden Week in Japan, a hugely momentous period in which a new Emperor ascends to the throne. It’s something that’s been known for some time, too, with the historical resignation of previous Emperor Akihito. Perhaps knowing that, the animators decided that this week would be a good a time as any to get some much-needed downtime.

Also, recaps are nothing new in anime, especially one as long-running as the Golden Wind series. 28 episodes in and things are bound to ramp up towards a thrilling climax with under a dozen episodes to go. This is just a way of getting everyone caught up and on the same page before things hit the home stretch.
