A few weeks ago, the anime series “ZOM 100” entered a cycle of episode postponements, causing concern among fans. Many feared a prolonged delay similar to what happened with Nier: Automata Ver 1.1a.
After the delay of episode 6, the series resumed its weekly broadcast, much to the relief of its viewers. However, the future now seems uncertain.
Zom 100 episode 9 will be released on upcoming Sunday, but there has been no announcement regarding the release schedule for the subsequent episodes, casting doubts about the series’ continuation.
After the airing of today’s episode of ZOM 100, the series will stop airing episodes until further notice. The reason this time is not some unrelated programming.
This time, the animation studio of ZOM 100, “BUG FILMS,” is facing production issues.
The studio remains tight-lipped about the release dates for episodes 10-12, leaving fans in suspense.
Will ZOM 100 be Delayed to Fall Season?
Given the series’ trajectory, it seems poised to transition into the upcoming anime season, the Fall Season, especially with two episodes yet to be broadcasted.
The studio, known for its consistent, high-quality animation, might require additional weeks to craft the series’ climactic episodes, ensuring they meet the established standard.
