VIZ Media has announced that the upcoming comedy zombie anime series Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead will be available on Hulu and Netflix in the USA.

Fans of the Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead anime series, based on the manga by creators Haro Aso and Kotaro Takata, can look forward to enjoying the simulcast premiere on Hulu at 2:00 am PDT come July 9, 2023. The release details for the anime being available on Netflix and other streaming services will be shared later.

Even though I haven’t read the manga, the premise and the trailer have made me interested in checking out the anime adaptation. I’m a fan of stories that add a comedic element to the zombie genre. And Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead seems ready to do just that!

With the manga debuting back in October of 2018, the plot is about a 24-year-old young man named Akira Tendo. His spirit has been crushed after spending three hard years doing a corporate job in Japan. However, things change in a major way for Akira Tendo due to a zombie apocalypse. He’s free from his corporate job and the end of the world seems to be the perfect time for him to complete the 100 things he has on his bucket list!

I’m the type of person who greatly enjoyed watching High School of the Dead so you bet I’m all in for whatever Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead has planned!

With the anime going for a July 9, 2023, release, I might just go ahead and read the manga. Let’s see.

Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is a VIZ Media co-production alongside Shogakukan and Shogakukan-Shueisha Productions Japan. VIZ Media represents the said anime in the North America, Latin America, Australia, and New Zealand territories.

The anime has been directed by Kazuki Kawagoe with the assistant director being Hanako Ueda. The character design is by Kii Tanaka. And the zombie designis Junpei Fukuchi. The anime production is by BUG FILMS.
