TV Tropes describes the synopsis as follows,
“Akira Tendo’s life is a living hell. He was once a young office worker brimming with dreams, ambition, and a passion for his work. But now he’s a 24-year-old trapped in employment at a black company. His life is an endless cycle of miserable labor for awful pay and little fulfillment. These days he’d rather be the protagonist of a zombie film than go back to work. As if something like that would happen… Yeah… About that…
Akira wakes up one morning to find his landlord eating one of his neighbors. Soon all of his zombified neighbors come crawling out of their apartments to sink their teeth into his flesh. He’s barely able to lock himself on the roof as he worries about being late for work. But then it hits him. He never has to go to work again.
Liberated from his perpetual torment, Akira uses his newfound freedom to do everything he’s ever wanted to do in life, writing it all down in his bucket list, ‘100 Things I Want to Do Before I Become a Zombie.’ To him, braving the Zombie Apocalypse is a vacation compared to a dead-end job!”
Netflix is planning on doing a live-action adaptation.
