Netflix is doubling down on anime shows and Pokémon, with bonus zombies

Netflix wants to be the best streaming service in Japan, and it used this weekend’s Anime Expo to tease some of its best new content. Despite the exhibition’s name, it wasn’t just about anime, although of course that was a huge part of the reveal. Netflix also showed off some live action shows, such as Zom 100: Bucket List of the Dead.

The series is an upcoming comedy horror based on the manga of the same name by Haro Aso and illustrator Kotaro Takata. Both the manga and the show focus on Akira Tendo, a bored twenty something office worker whose life is turned upside down when a zombie apocalypse hits Tokyo. As you can see from the trailer (below), the live action adaptation looks like a lot of fun and should have global appeal.
