About Zom 100: Bucket List Of The Dead

The anime is based on Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata’s Zom 100: Bicket of the Dead manga.

In October 2018, the manga was serialized in Shogakukan’s Sunday GX magazine.

Haro and Kotaro’s manga also got nominated for an Eisner Award.

A live-action adaptation of the manga will also debut on Netflix on August 23.

Aso’s previous work, Alice in Borderland, also received a live-action adaptation on Netflix in December 2021.

Viz Media has licensed the manga in English and describes the plot as:

Surviving a zombie apocalypse beats being a wage slave any day! After spending years slaving away for a soul-crushing company, Akira’s life has lost its luster.

He lives in a trash-filled apartment, his pay is abysmal, and he can’t even muster up the nerve to confess his love to his beautiful co-worker.

But when a zombie apocalypse ravages his town, it gives him the push he needs to live for himself. Now Akira’s on a mission to complete all 100 items on his bucket list before he…well, kicks the bucket.
