“Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead” has recently announced an indefinite hiatus for episodes 10 and beyond. This decision has left fans in suspense as the anime has been plagued by production issues and delays since its fourth episode.
The production house cited production issues as the primary reason for these setbacks. Although episodes have adhered to their intended schedule in Japan, they have been released a day later on streaming platforms worldwide. This delay pattern has caused frustration among fans.
The most concerning aspect is that the remaining three episodes of the Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead anime series have no fixed release date. Previous episodes had faced delays of up to a week, but now, the last three episodes of the scheduled 12-episode season have been delayed indefinitely. This decision was announced by Anime News And Facts and Crunchyroll via Twitter.
The news of the indefinite hiatus for “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead” was officially disclosed through Crunchyroll France’s Twitter/X account. The announcement read:
#Pause: Zom 100. Indefinite hiatus until episodes 10-12 are released in Japan and on streaming. We will keep you informed as soon as we receive new information. In the meantime, episode 9 is now available!
Crunchyroll, alongside Hulu and Netflix, is a primary distributor of the series, making this news quickly disseminated within the anime community. The statement implies that the delay for episodes 10 through 12 in Japan may not solely be attributed to production issues.
During this hiatus period, fans can still enjoy the most recent episode, titled “Treehouse of the Dead,” which is exclusively accessible for streaming on Netflix, Hulu, and Crunchyroll. It offers options for both English subbed and dubbed versions.
Why is Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead Episode 10 delayed?
The exact cause of this hiatus remains undisclosed, but it is likely connected to the ongoing production issues that have hindered the series despite its initial critical acclaim. Fans will have to await further updates from the production company or the anime’s official website to learn when, or if, the series will resume. Such delays are not uncommon in the world of anime production, and fans will need to exercise patience while waiting for any announcements regarding the future of the series.
“Zom 100” enthusiasts are currently seeking refuge in the manga adaptation, skillfully crafted by Haro Aso with illustrations by Kotaro Takata. This manga series falls under the seinen genre and is available in Italy through JPOP, boasting a translation of 12 volumes. In Japan, the manga continues smoothly without notable interruptions.
The protagonist of “Zom 100,” Akira, embodies the struggles faced by many young individuals today. Despite their talents and ambitions, they often find themselves trapped in companies that view them solely as expendable labor. This relatable aspect, combined with the manga’s unique take on the zombie apocalypse trope, has resonated deeply with its audience. While fans were eagerly anticipating the anime’s season finale, the indefinite hiatus has redirected their attention to the manga series as the only source of continuation for the time being.
