Before the zombie apocalypse, Akira Tendou worked as a regular office worker at Black Company. Despite doing his best, he can’t keep up with his co-workers and the CEO’s expectations.

As a result, he became so frustrated with his job for not having a single joyful moment despite having every single minute of his life for work. The only thing he loved in his office was Saori Ohtori, whom she had a big crush on.

However, Saori is not interested in Akira but rather wants to marry the CEO of Black Company. Now, Akira Tendou keeps wishing to find a way to escape his job life, or, better to say, slave life.

One day, his wish comes true, and suddenly the zombie apocalypse comes to Tokyo. So, the entire city began turning into mindless zombies, and no one had to do anything for anyone. They all have to do anything that helps them survive the zombie apocalypse.

As a result, Akira became so happy during the zombie outbreak and saw this intense situation as a golden opportunity to live his life to the fullest. Now, he decided to do those things that make him happy and made a list of 100 things to do called the “Bucket List” that he always wants to do.

In short,

“Akira Tendou is so frustrated with his job life that he is always looking for a way to escape from it. So, the zombie apocalypse comes as a golden opportunity for him, and he grabs it to live his life to the fullest. Without this zombie’s arrival, Akira will never be able to complete his Bucket List, the list of activities that he wants to do before dying”.


That’s it for the post. We hope you now know all your answers and why Akira Tendou is happy about the Zombie outbreak. His reasons for becoming happy in this intense situation are very connected and right.

Whoever faces this kind of tough situation will do something that Akira Tendou will do in Zom 100. His tough past life is all that is needed to give him the boost he needs to survive in this zombie apocalypse and complete his Bucket list.

Do small things with great love.
