“Beer is my holy water! The drink of the gods! Skipping work to get drunk. I’m a schlub and I love it…“—Tendo from Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead
Tendo has been a salaryman for three years in his drone of a job. His department chief, Kosugi, has impossible expectations of his staff. Meanwhile, Tendo is attracted to Saori Ohtori in Accounting. Unfortunately, she seems to be claimed by the company’s CEO. You know Tendo’s life is bad when the Zombie Apocalypse appears to be a better option.
“I’d rather be eaten by zombies than go another second without beer!“
Who hasn’t felt like that occasionally while working at a dead-end job? Okay, maybe not everyone but certainly some people. Tendo’s feelings come off as perfectly rational even if the setting is wildly abnormal. Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead is a surprisingly sweet story. It will definitely make you rethink your career choices. 5 stars and a favorite!
