Ryō Aoki, the production comitee director and official maker for the anime, posted an announcement in English on the anime’s site about the status of the anime. In the announcement, Aoki expressed in regards to his considerations on whether to delay the anime:

”We believe that GIBIATE, the collective strength of Japanese all-star creators, will be able to cheer up and give courage to those who have suffered from the virus and self-restraint, and give hope to our warmhearted fans through this work. So we decide to overcome difficulties on production and lack of promotions due to cancellations of the events, and start the broadcast in July as scheduled.
However, as it was difficult for key stations to broadcast this anime on terrestrial broadcasting due to its key word, I would like to apologize for having to give up broadcasting only on key terrestrial stations.
We are determined to do our best to bring this special anime work to you. There are only 2 months left, but we will do everything we can to mitigate impact of COVID-19 and delay of after recording while advancing the production.”

Gibiate Project, a worldwide IP improvement bunch that incorporates Amano, is building up the arrangement.

Gibiate Project portrays the anime:

”In 2030, Japan. A virus has infected humans throughout the world.
Infected people turn into different forms of monsters based on their ages, sexes and races. The virus is named ‘Gibia’ – after being rich in variety like gibier.
Just then, a pair of samurai and ninja appeared in such a blighted wasteland of Japan.
They both travelled from the early Edo period, fighting together with help from a doctor who tries to find cure for Gibia.
Facing ceaseless attacks from Gibia, and outlaws that attack travelers for food, they start the dangerous journey with enemies all around.
