Interspecies Reviewers continues to find unexpected changes to the airing schedule of its first season, with the series recently being dropped by television broadcasting channel SUN TV and subsequently being picked up by Gifu Broadcasting System.
Following the ecchi comedy series’ removal from broadcasting and streaming services provided by Funimation, Tokyo MX, Amazon, and Wakanim, the official Interspecies Reviewers Twitter account announced that the series had been dropped by the Kobe, Japan based broadcaster Sun TV by the organization itself:
