Zom 100: Bucket List Of The Dead Is On Crunchyroll Now


In a world where the living dead have become a staple of pop culture, it’s not often that we get a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse. But that’s exactly what’s stumbling onto Crunchyroll this summer. Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead, a hit manga series penned by Haro Aso and illustrated by Kotaro Takata, is set to make its animated debut on the 9th of July.

The series, which combines the terror of a zombie apocalypse with the relief of escaping a soul-crushing job, promises to be a unique blend of horror, humour, and heart. It’s a tale of survival, yes, but it’s also a tale of liberation and the pursuit of happiness in the most unlikely of circumstances.

The protagonist of our tale is Akira Tendo, a twenty-four-year-old who’s already feeling the weight of the world on his shoulders. After three years in a job that’s sucked the life out of him, Akira is at his wit’s end. His love life is non-existent, with his crush from Accounting, Saori, giving him the cold shoulder. Just when he thinks life couldn’t get any worse, the zombie apocalypse descends on Japan.

But instead of despair, Akira finds an unexpected silver lining. As he’s being chased by a horde of the undead, a realisation hits him: “Wait, does this mean I never have to go to work again?” And thus begins Akira’s journey of survival and self-discovery, as he navigates a world overrun by zombies, armed with a newfound sense of freedom and a bucket list of things to do before he kicks the bucket.
