News Outlets and Twitter Are Spotting Anime Episode Counts in the Wild, Including Zom 100

Summer 2023 in anime is going to be a loaded one, but you want the saturation of content to tie you over, especially if you’re a full-time otaku. There are plenty of great series recently that have confirmed 2 cour seasons including Jujutsu Kaisen, but some hotly anticipated shows are still worth noting for how long they’ll run.

The Zom 100 anime had its episode count spotted by an eagle-eyed observer noting a Japanese Disney Plus listing that quickly made the rounds earlier today. The show appears to have 12 episodes for its first season, but with the manga still going on, there’s hopefully more on the way!

Additionally, Twitter is buzzing with other stories about Bungo Stray Dogs Season 5 getting 11 episodes, contrary to previous claims of 10 episodes, and Dark Gathering getting 25. The way we see it, this means you get your fix of detective, supernatural, and zombie fiction packed into a hell of a summer. But as Bungo fans may have already stated, 11 episodes still isn’t enough.
