But what special or different sauce that “Zom100:Bucket list of the dead” brings on the table for long time anime viewers?

Frankly there has been enough zombie material out there which explores the journey of the main character’s surviving struggle post Apocalypse and restoring the human civilization once again. But this time what Zom100 did brilliant, was that the perspective of survival was tweaked a little, instead our main character Akira Tendo’s objective is to fulfill his 100 wish list before turning into a zombie himself.

That sounds way cooler somehow and does tick all the checkbox of every aspect of living the life to the fullest before you know that everything will collapse soon.

On the other hand, we do have other main character opposite to Tendo, Shizuka Mikazuki. Shizuka portrait’s a complete opposite attitude towards all the zombie apocalypse and follow the classic survival instinct.

It will be a fantastic journey as a viewer, how these two help each other to achieve their individual objectives on the way.

Our Thought’s On This Anime

Story:

I loved the concept overall, from the very first half where our protagonist has become the victim of overworking and toxic corporate culture and the result was that he eventually became one of the corporate zombie, to the actual zombie apocalypse happening and instead of panicking and looking out for any help the protagonist took this opportunity to live his newly free life to the fullest.

Animation Style and direction:

A top notch anime movie quality was served to us by Bug Films studio. For reference the use of those black and white tone representing the monotonous life of the protagonist with all the wide angles make us completely immersed and connected to the pain of the protagonist. The best part was that when the apocalypse really happens and the gore scenes were shown a complete rainbow filled of colors which represented the freedom and joy felt by the protagonist in that moment.

All thanks to the director Kazuki Kawagoe who did a fantastic job in visualizing the perfect scenes from the manga source and the Bug Films team to execute it.

Sound and Voice Over:

The sound design in charge was Makoto Miyazaki, who is well known for his works in One Punch Man and SpyxFamily. And he perfectly delivered on the expectations.

The Voice artists for Tendo is Shuichiro Umeda, his voice fits perfectly with Tendo. The english dub artist is Zeno Robinson.

Voice of Shizuka is given by Tomori Kusunoki and the engish voice is given by Abby Trott.

Conclusion

Till 16th of July 2023, we’ve got 2 episodes of Zom100: Bucket list of the dead and everything looks picture perfect as of now, but will it be able to have that same impact on us all throughout the season? And I think yes, it will.
