Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead Anime Adaptation Announced + Trailer Revealed
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead announced new anime!
There are few things more saturated in this world than the zombie genre, with movies and TV series finding tremendous success.
Meanwhile, anime is yet to crack the zombie code despite its crown jewels like shonen, isekai, and slice of life.
Most zombie movies or tv series, more often than not, follow a similar plot wherein a guy wakes up in a world where people eat people.
Sometimes they’re dead or alive or even infected but can walk and run as they meet a group of survivors.
One of them gets bit in secret and then tells nobody; thus, society starts to fall apart. Finally, in the process of surviving, we suddenly realized that the real monsters were the humans all along.
While this may be a typical storyline for most movies and shows, Haro Aso s’ comedy horror manga series Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead offers a fresh new take on the Zombie genre.
Despite anime s’ ill-fated attempts at the zombie genre, a few series, such as The Empire of Corpses, Zombie-Loan, and Tokyo Fish Attack, have shown the untapped potential of this genre.
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead has been one of the few zombie mangas that have been on the radar to receive an anime adaptation.
Fans of the Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead manga were quite rightly wondering if an anime adaptation would happen or not.

I wanted to make something that had never been done before. I wanted to try a different approach. I wrote (the manga) to be a little offbeat, a little silly. I’m OK if people see it as ridiculous. But there’s also a message: Do what you want to do as fully as you can.Variety

ZOM 100: BUCKET LIST OF THE DEAD PLOT
Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead follows salary man Akira Tendō who slaves away an unhealthy number of hours with minimal breaks and unpaid overtime.
The worst part is he takes it all home with the dreadful feeling of going back to work.
Akira Tendō has worked at a company exploiting him for three long years.
He’s completely reached his breaking point from ungrateful co-workers, constant unpaid overtime, and soul-breaking levels of stress.
He wakes up to find the world in sheer anarchy from a zombie apocalypse. After seeing all the blood, gore, and chaos surrounding him, he thinks the only thing is, “ I am going to be late for work.”
But after realizing the severity of the situation, Akira feels jubilation because he doesn’t have to go to the office anymore.
He feels a weight off his shoulders, and the world around him suddenly feels full of colour and joy.
Before the zombie apocalypse, he had numerous dreams that his laborious job had put off.
But things have changed as he sets out to achieve whatever he desires and tries not to let a bunch of murderous brain-eating zombies get in the way of his newfound happiness.
