When will Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead Ep 10 premiere?

Has Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead, Episode 10 been given new release date?

As Japanese animation studios continue to produce episodes so close to the wire they increasingly don’t make it in time for the air date, the excellent anime series Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is now experiencing the same production woes many other superb anime have also experienced in the last couple of years.

So much so, after Episode 8 was delayed for a second time earlier in the month due to yet more production problems at anime studio Bug Films , it now appears it may be a while before Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead, Episode 10 heads our way as well.

Episode 9, of course, was also delayed before it aired last night, and episodes four through eight saw delays before each one showed up at least a week overdue.

Now, with delays beginning to seriously affect the anime’s schedule, Bug Films has announced they will reveal the schedule for Episodes 10 through 12 at a later time.

Yikes!

Something that will affect the reputation of the anime, with people likely remembering Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead more for its frequent delays than for its superb quality.

Zom 100‘s delays exhibit shades of Uncle from Another World

A situation that also happened to Uncle from Another World (aka Isekai Ojisan) last year when frequent delays by studio AtelierPontdarc who, ridiculously blamed “Covid” for their own self-made problems, meant a 13 episode anime series, which should have come out over 13 weeks, took more than 32 weeks to be completely released.

In other words, streaming services like Netflix may want to rethink buying licensing rights from new anime studios (a la AtelierPontdarc and Bug Films) until they have a proven track record of releasing most of their anime episodes on time.

As, no matter how talented their staff is (and they are!), if a studio cannot release an anime in the time promised or at least close to it, they are not likely to survive long in the sometimes quite cuthroat anime industry.

Meanwhile, if you have not yet started watching Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead on Netflix, you might want to wait until it is confirmed all 12 planned episodes are out as, no sadly, we have no idea when Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead, Episode 10 will release?

And, likely, neither does Bug Films.
