6) Izuna Tokage
Izuna Tokage was the latest addition to Akira’s travel group. She was the person, who was mostly responsible to save Shizuka. With her blood only, Tsuru was able to create a blood serum that cures people of their zombie disease.

Kenichirou is one of the main protagonists of the series, and a very loveable character. On the surface, he just looks like a womanizer, but deep down, certain things make him emotional.

Most of the time, he is used as bait, to lure zombies somewhere else.

Shizuka is a very intelligent, and calculative woman, who deeply cares about everyone else in the group. This is the reason, she is in the top 2 Zom 100 characters list.
1) Akira Tendou
Finally, moving on to our protagonist, we have Akira Tendou. He is a carefree guy, who wants to live his life to the fullest now. Working for a black company for 3 years made him realize, that there are other things he wanted to do.
He was also the person who initially started the idea of the Bucket list. Akira was responsible for saving many characters in the series. He had saved his friend Kenichirou, Shizuka, and many strangers in the series.
Akira is also prepared to face any danger, to fulfill his wishes on his bucket list. Due to his time at his company, he became a very persistent and hard worker, who never knew when to give up.
