The official website of the Zom 100: Bucket List Of The Dead anime disclosed on August 13, 2023, that the broadcast of episode 6 will be postponed from August 20 to August 27 due to the scheduling of the 2023 World Athletics Championships, which will air on August 20 instead.
This wasn’t the first time for Zom 100 episodes to have delays in airing as episode 5 was shifted to another date because a special program titled “100 Things You Want to Prepare to Escape the Zombie World” was aired in its place.
The release of episode 4 got delayed for countries other than Japan due to production issues faced by streaming platforms like Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix.
Zom 100: Bucket List Of The Dead Episode 5 aired on August 13.
About Zom 100: Bucket List Of The Dead
The anime is based on Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata’s Zom 100: Bicket of the Dead manga.
In October 2018, the manga was serialized in Shogakukan’s Sunday GX magazine.
Haro and Kotaro’s manga also got nominated for an Eisner Award.
A live-action adaptation of the manga will also debut on Netflix on August 23.
Aso’s previous work, Alice in Borderland, also received a live-action adaptation on Netflix in December 2021.
Viz Media has licensed the manga in English and describes the plot as:
Surviving a zombie apocalypse beats being a wage slave any day! After spending years slaving away for a soul-crushing company, Akira’s life has lost its luster.
He lives in a trash-filled apartment, his pay is abysmal, and he can’t even muster up the nerve to confess his love to his beautiful co-worker.
But when a zombie apocalypse ravages his town, it gives him the push he needs to live for himself. Now Akira’s on a mission to complete all 100 items on his bucket list before he…well, kicks the bucket.
