This weekend the ninth episode of the anime adaptation of the manga aired Zom 100: Bucket List of the Deadand with this the production has gone into an indefinite suspension until production reveals more information about the broadcast of the last three episodes.
To understand what is happening, we must remember that Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead premiered on July 9 and is confirmed to have a total of twelve episodes, so the final episode should have been broadcast on September 24. Unfortunately, the production has been plagued by production problems within the studios BUG FILMS (supposedly disguised as “scheduling issues”), so the schedule became a complete disaster.
As a result, the series still has three episodes left to air, but will no longer have a broadcast block available next week. This is because next week the season will officially begin. Fall-2023 (October-December)and if any production lends its block so that Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead can broadcast its last three episodes, a domino effect will be generated where this new series will once again need another three extra weeks.
Thus, the production needs to find a way to broadcast the last three episodes in a way that does not interfere with the new broadcast season that will begin next week. Because there is a contract to fulfill with the television station(s), the episodes must appear at some point on television (they cannot simply be separated and published directly on streaming platforms), so it is possible that the episodes will be delayed until the end of the season (maybe December 2023) or a special is prepared where all three are broadcast on the same day. We just have to wait for more information..
The series has been broadcast since last July 9 in Japan and is confirmed with a total of twelve episodes, while the services Crunchyroll, Hulu and Netflix They are in charge of its distribution in the West. For its part, Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata They began publishing the manga through the magazine Sunday GX from the publisher Shogakukan in October 2018.

Synopsis of Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead
In a trash-filled apartment, 24-year-old Akira Tendou watches a zombie movie with lifeless, envious eyes. After spending three hard years in an exploitative company in Japan, his spirit is broken. He doesn’t even have the courage to confess his feelings to Ohtori, his beautiful co-worker. Then, one morning, he bumps into his landlord at lunch—who turns out to be another tenant! The entire city is overrun with zombies, and even though he’s running for his life, Akira has never felt so alive.
