Delayed Due to “Bucket List of the Dead”
To fill the gap left by Episode 5, a special program related to the series will air. The program, titled Zom 100 Special Program ~ 100 things you want to prepare to escape from zombies ~, will feature discussions on how to survive a zombie outbreak in real life, showcasing scenes from the anime series, and an interview with the Japanese rock band KANA-BOON, who performs the opening theme song for the anime.
This delay of Episode 5 follows the delay of Episode 4, which aired in Japan on July 30 but had its streaming release pushed to July 31. Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is available for streaming on platforms like Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix. It is not uncommon for anime series to experience delays, often due to production issues. Other series like Hell’s Paradise and Tokyo 24th Ward have also suffered from delays. NieR: Automata Ver.1.1a, the anime adaptation of the popular game, also faced delays before finally airing its remaining episodes on July 23, four months after the second delay.
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is based on a manga by Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata. The series follows a burnt-out office worker named Akira Tendo, who uses the zombie apocalypse as an opportunity to pursue everything he ever wanted to do in life.
Overall, Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead has experienced delays in the airing of its episodes, with Episode 4 and now Episode 5 being pushed back. Fans can look forward to a special program to fill the gap left by Episode 5, featuring discussions on surviving a zombie outbreak and an interview with the band KANA-BOON.
