Last summer, Zom 100 anime brought fresh breath to the dystopian zombie genre. It offered an unorthodox story on handling the supposed tragic and horror zombie virus. While the scene of gore is present, the amazing idea of making the blood colorful makes this joyful atmosphere shine further.
It is a no-brainer that Zom 100 anime has become one of the best zombie anime ever created. Unfortunately, the series has been bombarded with a series of delays since its fourth episode. From then on, the mountain of delays always came in each episode resulting in the wreck schedule.
Finally, Zom 100 anime officially went on indefinite hiatus after its 9th episode. It was quite a bummer because they released a new version of the opening from KANA-BOON after the introduction of the last main protagonist, Beatrix.
But, there is good news comes from the official Zom 100 anime. They revealed the release date of the last episodes of the series. When will it premiere? Read on!
Zom 100 Anime Last Episodes Release Date
The official website of Zom 100 Anime announced the release date of the series on November 6, 2023. It stated that the last three episodes, 10-12, will premiere on December 25, 2023. Furthermore, the three episodes will be broadcast consecutively.
The grand finale of Zom 100 anime will premiere on several streaming platforms such as Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Netflix. Moreover, Muse Asia will broadcast it on their YouTube channel for Asian audiences.
Though fans end up getting disappointed because of delays, most of them still holds high expectation for the last episodes. It is proved by the announcement post which breaks 1.7 million views in a week.
Actually, the expectation is given because of how well BUG FILMS put their effort into this anime. Even though it is their first project, Kazuki Kawagoe brilliantly turns this series into a phenomenon. But with a lot of production issues happening, will it ever have a chance for a second season?
