Fans adore the horror comedy manga series Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead, which was created by Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata. The protagonist of the novel is Akira, who is tired of his ordinary existence and yearns to break away from the routine he has followed for years.
When the world slides into a zombie apocalypse, Akira’s anguish is eradicated one day in a terrible and horrifying manner. Oddly, he doesn’t mind that he is no longer compelled to work; in fact, he is relieved. Evidently, Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is much more than just an apocalypse survival anime.

A Japanese manga series with the same name as Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is being turned into a movie. Haro Aso wrote the story, and Kotaro Takata drew the pictures. The first time it was seen was in Shogakukan’s Sunday GX magazine in October 2018. Shogakukan put out the 12th volume of the manga’s collected works on November 17, 2022.
Plot of Zom 100 Anime
The official plot summary published by Viz Media for Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is as follows.
“After spending years working for a soul-crushing company, Akira’s life has lost its luster. 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.”
We have an interesting set-up: Akira (Shuichiro Umeda), instead of just trying to survive or make the best of the end of the world, sees it as a breath of fresh air that people have turned into monsters that eat flesh. It’s a break from the monotony and boredom of his job, and he can’t let this chance go to waste. His calm response could, of course, be a sign of how he really feels.
In the show’s trailer, we get a quick look at Akira’s home. It’s not a pretty picture: his bed is surrounded by a depression nest of garbage bags, food scraps, dozens and dozens of bottles, strewn clothes, and a dimly lit TV. Akira’s earbuds don’t completely block out a brief glimpse of a fight at work. It looks like Akira’s boss is yelling at a coworker, and the noise is only partially drowned out by his music. Akira is probably sad, and this is shown in a few different ways in the movie.

Color filters are used a lot in the trailer, which may or may not be a part of the show. When he walks into his office job for the first time, everyone’s smiles are fully colored. But the scene described before and the beginning of the end of the world are shown with a harsh black-and-white filter. Only the blood rushing from Akira’s temple keeps its usual crimson color. But soon after Akira realizes that the world is now his oyster, color suddenly returns to the world.
Cast: Who will Star in Zom 100 Anime?
So far, only one member of the cast has been confirmed. Akira’s main role will be played by Shuichiro Umeda. As a voice actor, Umeda has been in a number of recent anime shows. He has had small roles in The World Ends with You: The Animation and Bocchi the Rock, as well as main roles in My Life as Inukai-Dog, san’s The Dawn of the Witch, and Shikimori’s Not Just a Cutie.
Kii Tanaka and Junpei Fukuchi will be in charge of designing characters and zombies, respectively. Flip Flappers, Kaguya-sama: Love is War, Guyver: The Bioboosted Armor and Utawarerumono are some of the animations they have worked on before.
With an interesting mix of credits, the designs of both the characters and the bloodthirsty zombies are likely to be the best of both worlds. We get a quick look at them in the trailer, and they look more like the zombie hordes from 28 Days Later or World War Z than the classic, slow-moving walkers.
