Bye Bye, Earth Episode 1 Release Date Confirmed

Goodbye, Earth is another anime coming this summer, and fans of the novel and manga series couldn’t be more excited. The anime adaptation of Goodbye, Earth was first announced in November 2022, and now we have a release date for the series.

When is Bye Bye, Earth episode 1 coming out?

The first episode of Goodbye, Earth Season 1 is set to release on July 12. Season 1 is currently confirmed to have a total of eight episodes, which will air on Fridays, with the full schedule as follows:

  • Episode 1 – July 12
  • Episode 2 – July 19
  • Episode 3 – July 26
  • Episode 4 – August 2
  • Episode 5 – August 9

Goodbye, Earth will first air on Japanese TV channel WOWOW at 11:30 PM JST and will later air on Crunchyroll. While no official streaming time has been announced, simulcasts are typically only available to stream a few hours after they air.

Additionally, rumors suggest that Goodbye, Earth will have more than the eight episodes already confirmed, and may possibly air as many as 20. If this is indeed the case, it is likely that the episodes will take place in two separate cours with a break in between, as has been seen with other anime.

What is Bye Bye, Earth about?

Goodbye, Earth takes place in a post-apocalyptic world ravaged by mutations. Normal humans have all but disappeared, replaced by hybrid combinations of humans and animals.

Goodbye, Earth tells the story of Belle LaBlac, born an outcast in a world of anthropomorphic animals. Known as “Faceless,” Belle is determined to discover the truth about her origins and find others like her. This leads her to embark on a journey to unravel the mystery of her existence, unaware of the many obstacles and adversaries that stand in her way. Fortunately, Belle is a skilled fighter and wields the massive sword Rundling, which will undoubtedly come in handy during her perilous quest.

Bye Bye, Earth will premiere worldwide on July 12 on Crunchyroll.
