The manga The Gal and the Dinosaur from Moriko Mori and Cota Tomimura has been chugging along since its April 4th, 2020 debut and was one of the series that hadn’t hit any delays. Until now. The official site has confirmed that they’re delaying new episodes due to production issues in trying to get things done amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The seventh episode is still scheduled for this coming weekend but then it’s expected to run the first five episodes over the next five weekends and will figure out when they’ll resume during that time period, especially as lifting of the lockdown is so variable there.
The anime series has Jun Aoki on board as the series director and script supervisor while Space Neko Company and Kamikaze Douga are handling the animation production.
The Japanese anime cast includes Miyuri Shimabukuro as Kaede, Yuko Natsuyoshi as Yamada, Youki Kudou as Kaede’s senior colleague, and Seiichirō Yamashita as Shōta.

The creators, who are married, began the book in 2018 as serialized in Young Magazine. It has two volumes out so far since it began.
The series features the opening theme song “Kyouryuu Agemizawa” by Kyouruu Friends (Miyuri Shimabukuro, Yuko Natsuyoshi, Youki Kudo, Seiichiro Yamashita) while the ending theme song is “Hurry Love” by Azuki Waki.
Plot concept: The comedy series will follow Kaede, a Japanese “gal” who brings home a dinosaur one day. We’ll see their day-to-day lives unfold in quirky situations as this goofy-looking dinosaur enjoys culinary delicacies, binges the latest shows on television, and gets wrapped up in the world of fashion while living with Kaede.
