The official website for the anime adaptation of Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata’s manga, “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead,” has released an updated broadcast schedule after factoring in production delays. As previously mentioned, the sixth episode of the anime has been rescheduled to air on August 27, followed by the seventh episode on September 3.
A recap episode will then be broadcast on September 10. Subsequently, the eighth and ninth episodes are set to premiere on September 17 and 24, respectively. Due to the impact of these delays, the release dates for episodes 10-12 will be announced at a later date.
An adjustment in the timeline occurred as the anime’s fifth episode was postponed by one week, prompting the airing of a special program in its stead during the preceding week. Similarly, the fourth episode’s broadcast was postponed by a day on various streaming platforms like Crunchyroll, Hulu, Netflix, and certain Japanese services, citing production reasons.
The anime initially premiered in Japan on July 9, with Viz Media holding licensing rights for North America, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand. Viz Media is collaboratively producing the anime alongside Shogakukan and Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions Japan. The series debuted on Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix in the United States at 5:00 a.m. EDT on July 9.
Shūichirō Umeda takes the lead as protagonist Akira Tendo, while Tomori Kusunoki portrays the heroine Shizuka Mikazuki, an employee at a foreign finance firm who adheres to calculated risk-taking, guided by an internal list of “100 actions to prevent zombification.” Kenichiro Ryuzaki is played by Makoto Furukawa, and Minami Takahashi brings life to Beatrix Amerhauser.
Kazuki Kawagoe directs the anime at studio BUG FILMS, assisted by Hanako Ueda. Overseeing the series’ scripts is Hiroshi Seko, with Kii Tanaka as the character designer and Junpei Fukuchi as the zombie designer. Makoto Miyazaki composes the music, while Maiko Gōda handles “music selection” and dugout manages sound production. The anime is produced by Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions Co., Ltd. The opening theme, “Song of the Dead,” is performed by KANA-BOON, while the ending theme, “Happiness of the Dead,” is by Shiyui.
The manga’s success also paved the way for a live-action film adaptation, globally available on Netflix since August 3. Notably, Aso’s “Alice in Borderland” manga yielded a live-action series on Netflix in December 2021, followed by its second season in December 2022.
