A new anime based on the R18 novel I Am The Only One Who Is Not Attacked In The World Filled With Zombies (Zombie no Afureta Sekai de Ore dake Osowarenai) is coming soon. It will air on Japan’s AT-X channel.
Rokuro Uraji wrote I Am The Only One Who Is Not Attacked In The World Filled With Zombies. He started posting the story online on the Nocturne Novels website in 2013. The printed novels, with Saburou’s illustrations and Frontier Works’ Nox Novels imprint, began in 2016 and have three volumes as of March 2017.
The novel also inspired:
- A manga adaptation by Chihiro Masuda, which will launch its third volume on February 5
- Several visual novels developed by Seacoxx, which are known as I Walk Among Zombies in English. Steam gives the following description of I Walk Among Zombies Vol. 1, which was first available digitally in Japan in 2015.
Yuusuke is an office worker with a dislike for people, preferring to do his job alone and in silence. When the company he works for suddenly goes bankrupt, he loses his job, and with that, all his motivation disappears, and he becomes a complete shut-in.
On one of the rare days he decides to leave his apartment, after a week-long video game binge, a mysterious man attacks him and bites his arm. Though Yuusuke manages to escape back to his room, he comes down with a fever and becomes bedridden for several days.
When Yuusuke wakes up, recovered, he goes to resume his normal life, but he soon finds that in the short time he was asleep the world has completely changed. Zombies have emerged in every corner of the world simultaneously, and the few human survivors are now in hiding.
“Why am I the only one the zombies don’t attack?”
How will Yuusuke take advantage of his new situation, and what will he discover?
