A major Japanese film company Toei has been subjected to a cyberattack, which led to a delay in the airing of new episodes of popular anime series, including One Piece and Delicious Party Precure.
According to Toei’s statement, the studio discovered unauthorized access to its systems on March 6, 2022. The next day, the company issued an incident notification, shut down all internal systems as a precautionary measure, and began an investigation.
The company, together with information security experts, intends to find out whether information about customers and business partners has been compromised.
Due to the incident, the airing of new episodes of Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken, Delicious Party Precure, Digimon Ghost Game and One Piece will be postponed until further notice. The delay in the release of new episodes of One Piece affects the entire network of broadcasters around the world, including Netflix, Funimation and Crunchyroll.
