After graduating from a top university with an impressive extracurricular record in the rugby club, Akira Tendou has nailed every step of the way to securing his dream job. On top of that, a beautiful and kind co-worker always brightens his day in the office! Life seems to be going very well for Akira until he slowly realizes that sleepless nights and brutal work are his new reality.

Due to three years of mind-numbing labor in an exploitative company, Akira is unable to recognize the tired, unaccomplished person he has become. On track to losing all passion in life like several of his overworked colleagues, Akira finds his saving grace in the most unexpected way possible—the breakout of a zombie apocalypse.

With the free time he finally has, Akira decides to complete a bucket list of a hundred things he wants to do before he eventually gets turned into a zombie. Although he is surrounded by the dead, Akira has never felt more alive!

The anime is definitely not what you'd expect. The first episode gets you hooked. The animations were immaculate. Although they couldn't keep up that level of animations because of the delays and everything but still the animations were very good.

The main character was well developed in the prologue episode aka episode 1. The concept is very good. I mean who doesn't wanna be free from the shackles of the society and create a bucket list of their own.

The way that they ended the first season has me questioning, will it ever get a second season, cause man I wanna see more of this ...

Mixed Feelings
*Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead* is a series that, at least in the beginning, seemed to have its finger on a bizarre pulse that had laid dormant for some time. Romping through its *Splatoon!*-colored zombie-fied “end of the world” setting, it decided that character depth and important intrigue would be abandoned in favor of giving its setting the excuse to go full-fledged indulgent into the stupid. Why concern yourself with hunkering down and fighting blood, sweat, and tears to survive when you could be more concerned about getting beer at the konbini instead, despite the clear and present danger? Why take the time ...

The first episode of this show was absolutely phenomenal. It's about the MC feeling overworked, exhausted and stressed out to the brink of feeling suicidal, all of this because he sees himself trapped in a toxic unfulfilling working environment. So when a world-ending event such as a zombie apocalypse proves to be a golden opportunity for our protagonist to free himself from the shackles of his workplace and start doing the things he always wanted to do, you know you're in for something special. This goofy idea combined with the silliness of the scenes where the protagonist comes out unscathed while he rides his bike ...
