The anime will star Shūichirō Umeda as protagonist Akira Tendo.

Kazuki Kawagoe is directing the anime at studio BUG FILMS and Hanako Ueda is the assistant director.

KANA-BOON is performing the opening theme song "Song of the Dead," and Shiyui is performing the ending theme song "Happiness of the Dead."
Viz Media licensed the manga, and it describes the story:
Surviving a zombie apocalypse beats being a wage slave any day! After spending years slaving away for a soul-crushing company, Akira's life has lost its luster. He lives in a trash-filled apartment, his pay is abysmal, and he can't even muster up the nerve to confess his love to his beautiful co-worker. 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.
The manga is inspiring a live-action film that will debut on Netflix worldwide in 2023. Aso's Alice in Borderland manga inspired a live-action series adaptation that debuted on Netflix in December 2021. The second season debuted on Netflix worldwide in December 2022.
