1. Anime PR: Knights of Sidonia Cancellation - 09/04/2014
The statement was changed from the following:
Madman have recently got in contact with us due to our recent coverage of the Knights of Sidonia news shared by them. We just want to clarify to our readers that Knights of Sidonia was not canceled due to server hacks and that Madman are working on getting the show on air.
The hacks were partly speculation and partly jest due to the events that transpired in Kill La Kill’s cancellation. Apologies for any confusion that may have arisen.
This is because:

First line is fine, but just wondering if you could possibly amend the rest slightly to say:
We just want to clarify to our readers that Knights of Sidonia was not cancelled for the reasons we had previously speculated – which was partly in jest taking into account the events that transpired in Kill La Kill’s cancellation.
Madman is hopeful they will be able to reschedule the series at a later date.
