Toei Animation announced on Friday that on March 6, an unauthorized third party accessed the company's network, which resulted in a shutdown of part of the company's systems. Toei Animation is investigating the matter, and added the hack will affect the broadcast schedules for the One Piece, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Delicious Party Precure, and Digimon Ghost Game anime.

TV Asahi was originally slated to air episode 6 of Delicious Party Precure on Sunday, but due to the hack the channel aired episode 4 of the show instead. TV Asahi will air the Hugtto! Precure Futari wa Precure All Stars Memories in three parts on March 20, March 27, and April 3 instead of airing new episodes of the anime.

Fuji TV will air a re-run of the "Special Episode: Barto's Secret Room" recap special of One Piece on March 20, and the anime's announcement stated the channel plans to air more "Wano Country Best Selection" re-run or recap episodes after that.

Fuji TV will re-air the first episode of Digimon Ghost Game on March 20, and the announcement stated the channel plans to air more "Digimon Ghost Game Selection" rerun episodes after that.
