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.
