"After spending years toiling away for a soul-crushing company, Akira's life has lost its luster. But when a zombie apocalypse ravages his town, it gives him the push he needs to live for himself. Now Akira's on a mission to complete all 100 items on his bucket list before he...well, kicks the bucket. In a trash-filled apartment, 24-year-old Akira Tendo watches a zombie movie with lifeless, envious eyes. After spending three hard years at an exploitative corporation in Japan, his... spirit is broken. He can't even muster the courage to confess his feelings to his beautiful co-worker Ohtori. Then one morning, he stumbles upon his landlord eating lunch--which happens to be another tenant! The whole city's swarming with zombies, and even though he's running for his life, Akira has never felt more alive!"--Amazon.

Review by Publishers Weekly Reviews

The end of the world is a gift in Aso (the Hyde & Closer series) and Takata's entertainingmanga spin on the zombie genre. Twenty-four-year-old Akira Tendo's employed at a company that uses exploitive tactics to work its employees to the bone. He frequently pulls all-nighters and deals with passive-aggressive threats from his superiors, and lusts after his winsome coworker, Saori Ohtori, who also happens to be the "boss's side piece." Akira is so set in the routine of his daily drudge that when a zombie apocalypse erupts, his first thought is that it's going to make him late for the office. When reality comes crashing in, he determines to make a bucket list of 100 things to do before he inevitably becomes a zombie. First stop is confessing his love to Saori. Some reflective moments intersperse the fun and action, as Akira muses: "I sacrificed time I could have spent with friends and for what? What good did all that overtime do me?" Takata's art pops with a wonderful frenetic energy that propels Akira's quest. Akira's glee at escaping his job—even if it means the world is ending—serves up giddy wish-fulfillment. (Feb.)
