Thursday 3 August 2023 Banbury, UK

 As a dedicated fan of all things K-Drama and J-Drama, I was eagerly awaiting the release of Netflix's latest addition to the genre, "Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead." To my delight, this series took the well-trodden path of the undead and morphed it into something completely refreshing and sidesplitting. Offering a unique blend of humor, heart, and undead mayhem, Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead kept me hooked from start to finish.
 From the Japanese manga author Haro Aso also the author of 'Alice in Bordeland' ( see my review of this series here) I couldn't wait to watch this new movie.
Also, note that this movie is based on the manga series of the same name. 

Engaging and Clever Premise:
 What sets Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead apart from other zombie series is its clever premise. Our protagonist, Akira Tendo, is an ordinary office worker bullied and unhappy and suddenly finds himself thrust into a post-apocalyptic world filled with the living dead. Instead of succumbing to despair or hopeless survival, Akira embraces this new world by embarking on a bucket list to make the most of his situation. This twist on the typical zombie narrative injects a refreshing dose of optimism and adventure into the story.

Well-Developed Characters:
 The characters in Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead are not your average clichéd survivors. Akira Tendo, the main character, is relatable and endearing, providing the perfect blend of vulnerability and determination. His charismatic companion Rei, a self-proclaimed zombie enthusiast, adds comic relief and steers Akira towards increasingly outrageous and eccentric ideas for his bucket list. The supporting cast is equally well-developed, each contributing their unique quirks and talents to the group dynamic.

Hilarious Humor and Heartwarming Moments:
 If you're looking for a good laugh, Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead has you covered. The series strikes a perfect balance between horror and comedy, seamlessly blending spine-chilling zombie encounters with laugh-out-loud moments. From Akira's attempts at fulfilling his bucket list items to the eccentric behaviors of the group, the humor never feels forced and continuously keeps viewers entertained. Alongside the comedic elements, the show also manages to create emotionally resonant scenes that pull at the heartstrings, providing a well-rounded experience.

Visually Stunning:
 The animation and visuals in Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead are exceptional. The attention to detail in creating the post-apocalyptic atmosphere is commendable, with the decaying cityscapes and hordes of zombies appearing both terrifying and captivating. The fluid animation during intense action sequences adds an extra layer of excitement and keeps viewers on the edge of their seats.

 Zom 100 Bucket List of the Dead is a breath of fresh air in the zombie genre, offering a heartwarming and hilarious take on the undead apocalypse. This Netflix series successfully combines horror, comedy, and adventure in a way that keeps viewers engaged and entertained throughout. With its engaging premise, well-developed characters, humor, and stunning visuals, this is a series that zombie enthusiasts and comedy lovers alike shouldn't miss.
