With Alice in Borderland, zombies had a some-what background performance, but Zom 100 redefines Haro’s style with the inclusion of bamboozling scenarios, peart performances and an overdue overhaul of the zombie genre- literally that is what the protagonist’s actual goal is.

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead follows our worked to the bone 24 year old company man Tendou Akira, who is constantly exposed to one thought while watching grisly and abominable zombie movies, “Man I wish that was me”.
His mundane life, toxic environment and congested emotions all leave him yearning that everyone was gone so he could do anything he ever wanted without a care in the world. When he gets his wish he sets out to create a bucket list of 100 things he has to do before he gets nabbed by a zombie- from the silliest things as tidying up his room to the hard ones like confessing to the girl he loves.
“4. Ride a huge Bike
25. Offer free hugs
33. Meet the woman of my dreams
36. Become a superhero”
– Kendou Akira
Yes, Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead characters are all just built like this, vibrant in their own uncanny way. Without a doubt you’ll be on one hell of a ride throughout the story as Zom 100 not only excels in integrating comedy, and visualizing astonishing sights, it also compels one to get lost in the ever-dynamic world building.
