A zombie apocalypse doesn’t have to be the end of the world. When corporate wage slave Akira Tendo discovers that Tokyo has been overrun with the living dead, he’s elated that he won’t have to go to work anymore.
It doesn’t take long for reality to sink in — well, kind of. After discovering that his office crush has also turned flesh eater, Akira resolves to make the most of his remaining days and starts compiling a list of things he wants to do before meeting his undead maker.
Doomsday is seldom treated as flippantly as in “Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead,” a hit manga series written by Haro Aso (“Alice in Borderland”). First published in 2018, Aso’s mash-up of salaryman comedy and survival horror has already run to 14 volumes and spawned an anime adaptation, which arrived a few weeks ahead of this Netflix live-action feature, directed by Yusuke Ishida.
