Zero no Tsukaima Mystery 13th Episode Cancelled

20080802012841

Much speculation over the reason a station, Kid’s Station, opted to officially announce its cancellation of the airing of the thirteenth episode of Zero no Tsukaima III has emerged.

There are those who point out that a children orientated station might have difficulty with a determinedly ecchi anime such as Zero no Tsukaima, and those who, rather more convincingly, think the station got its schedule mixed up – this opinion is leant much weight by the fact that other stations had the anime billed as being only twelve episodes.

Furthermore, it is practically confirmed by the news that the fourth DVD is set to get an additional episode, which though not explicitly specified, would sound like a certain match for the thirteenth episode.

So it looks like everyone but Kid’s Station got word that the episode was to promote DVD sales; an unusually egregious mistake? What on earth were they doing all those weeks? Preparing more ero-comedy for their young viewers?

Details.

    It’ll be right after episode 6 in terms of the flow on the DVDs (there’ll be 7 DVDs in all), so probably either a side-story or something set more in the middle of the of the story. That being said, this has been known for some time now, as it’s been listed in the DVD solicitations this way for months. So yeah, I think they must have just not gotten the memo or something…
