‘Z/X’ is an anime adapted from game, so unsurprisingly it has a very intricate and engaging plot. It makes an attempt to perfectly capture the vast world and all the characters of its source but fails to do so because of its short runtime of 12 episodes. Even so, it still manages to bring in some memorable action scenes and incredible backgrounds that make it quite enjoyable. It also has some censored fan service which never really goes overboard and at times, even adds a lighter tone to its fairly dark storyline. Overall, from an adaptation standpoint, it comes nowhere close to being as good as the game but it’s still watchable if you can overlook its evident flaws.
Z/X Season 3 Release Date: When will it premiere?
‘Z/X’ season 1 premiered on January 10, 2014 and went on till April 3, 2014. This was then followed by season 2, titled Z/X: Code Reunion’, released on October 8, 2018, and with a total of 12 episodes, went on till December 24, 2019.
Most gaming anime shows are not too well received by fans but Season 1 of ‘Z/X’ was an exception as it managed to get a fairly average rating on most platforms. Unfortunately, as expected, the second season of the anime has not been received too well by most viewers. And since its rating on most platforms is much below average, it is very less likely that the anime will return with a sequel. Even so, if it is being considered for a sequel already, we can expect ‘Z/X’ season 3 to release sometime in 2021.
