Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead Review 2023 Tv Show Series Cast Crew Online
Akira has been living life without any kind of purpose for as long as he can remember. He hates his job, his apartment is a disaster area, and he just can’t will himself to move forward. Not only that, but coworker Saori Ohtori (Sora Amamiya) the only person who makes him feel sane at work, is having an affair with his boss.
Luckily, the zombies come. And that means Akira no longer has to go to work, or care about the trappings of everyday life. He’s free, and that means no more having to be weighed down by everything that’s been keeping him from living the way he wants to.
This gives him a new lease on life, especially because he has no need to continue working for a salary in a world where zombies are shambling around. He pens a to-do list in an attempt to complete a bucket list before he feels he’ll inevitably become a zombie.
This includes everything from learning to speak English to finding his dream woman. Most of humanity is terrified of what’s coming next as the zombies continue to multiply, but Akira can’t wait to see what he can do before it all comes crashing down, which leads to him being put in a variety of hilariously weird situations. Most people certainly don’t have this sort of reaction to zombies taking over, but for Akira, it feels like a dream come true.
Most zombie content focuses on the bleakness of the future and how terrifying it is that you’ll soon be faced with a miserable death at the hands of the undead. Zom 100 is refreshing in that it skirts those typical concerns and attacks the situation with a completely different approach.
Akira can’t be bothered to stop and think about the implications of what’s going on around him. It should be terrifying, but it’s a joke a minute as you root for Akira and his ability to finally live the life he’s been hoping to ever since he joined the workforce. If you’ve ever had a job you hated, it’s extremely relatable. And there are always things we wish we had done or had time to do.
In that, it’s less of a zombie series and more of a slice of life that delivers on the horror side. It’s just different enough to work, and in the most manic way possible. The zombies are pretty much icing on the cake.
