Netflix has an excellent track record with zombies, especially from Korea, however, we haven’t seen much zombie content from Japan besides the extremely poor adaptation of Resident Evil. If the film is anything is going to be anything like the manga it’s based on, then expect plenty of comical violence and some lighthearted goofiness from the main protagonist.

For the past three years, Tendou Akira has been a wage slave for a popular production company. Overworked, underpaid, and with no time for himself, Akira has become a mindless zombie meant for one purpose, to work. When the zombie apocalypse hits, Akira is delighted, happy that for the first time in three years, he finally gets a day off. Realizing that the zombie apocalypse means he will never have to go back to the office ever again, Akira decides to make the most of his newfound freedom by creating a bucket list of 100 things he would like to do before becoming a zombie.
