Top 40 Most Popular Zombie Anime

 

Zombies are one of the most popular themes to cover in any form of media. And anime is no exception to it.

 

However, the medium of anime is filled with thousands of great shows that have zombies in their narrative, one way or another.

 

However, which ones are the best for you? Well, that's exactly what we will answer today in this article.

 

This is the Top 40 Best Zombie Anime List that will give you a wide pool of shows that you can watch to quench your thirst for some good zombie-oriented stories.

 

And don't worry, this is a diverse collection and so, not all of the entries will be about the zombie apocalypse.

 

I hope you enjoy it.

 

 

40. Walking Meat

 

Walking Meat

 

Imagine a world where Zombies are living creatures. However, they live their lives as casually as you might imagine. That's what makes Walking Meat so special. The show talks about a world where Zombies are very common.

 

And so, to meet the requirements of these creatures, an organization called the Flesh inc. has managed to create zombies on soil and thus, things seem to be going quite well.

 

However, they are going to launch a new line of products called zombie products such as instant noodles, cosmetics, pet food, etc.

 

With all these things in place, Flesh Inc was on its way to becoming one of the greatest. But a few characters didn't have the best time of their lives in this company. And that's where the series begins.

As you might have guessed, this isn't exactly an anime. It is a Chinese series that happens to have a lot in common with Japanese anime mediums.

 

And we will be looking at this and many such shows on our list. Let's see how things go.

 

For this anime specifically, it's all incredible. The story is pretty standard with a post-apocalyptic setting taking place. Everything seems to be chaotic as people lose their humanity and turn into zombies.

 

And this epidemic is spreading like crazy. However, a group is going to go up against this situation and ensure that they save humanity at any cost.

 

If they don't succeed, this might very well be the victory of zombies over humans. And that's not the best possible outcome, is it?

 

 

38. Spookiz

 

Spookiz

 

It's more of a kid show than a mature anime but hey, sometimes you gotta spice things up a bit.

 

The show talks about a bunch of characters, the main ones being Cula and Frankie as they live their lives in this special school.

 

This school has demons, vampires, zombies, etc and their acts are nothing less than fascinating for everyone who is part of the show.

 

The story is quite lighthearted and the anime is from Korea so it has a different feel than your typical anime.

 

However, that doesn't change the fact that this show can be quite fun if you have your kid inside you, still alive.

 

 

37. Francesca

 

Francesca

 

The story is set in a world where Zombies have already infiltrated normal humans. Therefore, exorcists are assigned the task of taking down these zombies.

 

And these creatures aren't as brainless as you might expect. Therefore, they have traits like being perverted or fairly clever.

 

This is why Francesca is someone who has been called out for the sake of taking down these special zombies.

 

And she isn't alone in this task. She is also supported by her Dog who will try his best to make sure that no Monster leaves out alive.

 

This is what the anime is all about. A bunch of characters taking down zombies in the hood. It may not sound all that much but it is indeed quite noteworthy.

 

 

36. Resident Evil 4D Executor

 

Resident Evil 4D Executor

 

This installment of the Resident Evil series focuses on a rescue mission. And this rescue mission will decide the fate of Humanity, one way or another.

 

Resident Evil 4D Executor is one of the most notable anime when it comes to the zombies' department and happens to revolve around a military squad that has been sent to a city called the Racoon City.

 

The important thing to note here is that Racoon City isn't a normal place. Instead, it is a place where a female scientist has lost her way.

 

And she was researching a special kind of virus. Plus, it is important to rescue her since the entire city is infested with zombies. Yup, it is quite dangerous for sure.

 

 

35. Zombie Dumb

 

Zombie Dumb

 

This is another lighthearted zombie-focused series that you can watch with your friends and family. And let's just say that it will bring out the child in you for sure.

 

The show focuses on a young girl who lives in a spooky town. There, she is friends with a group of Zombie children who have quite a lot of personalities within them.

 

And because of this, she can have a ton of fun in her spooky town. With interesting animation and a lot of comedy, this show manages to gain the attention of every age demographic. And therefore, it is placed so high on our list.

 

 

34. Alice in Deadly School

 

Alice in Deadly School The Animation

 

This anime is all focused on girls left out in a school. And their approach will decide if they are going to survive or get rekt.

 

Alice in Deadly School The Animation is a series that talks about a bunch of girls who were having their time in their school when suddenly, they realize something.

 

Their school has been infested with zombies and most students have transformed into one. Therefore, these girls have no choice but to try and survive.

 

However, the actions that they are going to take from this point forward, will they be ideal? If not, then who will be punished?

 

That's what the series revolves around. If the step taken isn't correct, it might very well not be taken at all. Otherwise, that could be the last step possible.

 

 

33. Within The Bloody Woods

 

Within The Bloody Woods

 

A rather short and simple story revolving around Zombies. That's how you would describe Within The Bloody Woods. The show is all about a guy who was roaming in a forest, minding his own business.

 

And just as you would expect, some other people had business with him instead. So while he was venturing into the woods, he encountered a group of ruthless zombies.

 

And now, he is going to experience what fear truly means. This anime has only 2 episodes and is extremely short in its contents.

 

Plus, it uses stop motion animation and manages to capture the key features of any good zombie anime very well. That's why it deserves a spot on our list.

 

 

32. Maid of the Dead

 

Maid of the Dead

 

This anime is just what it sounds like. Zombies as maids. And although it may seem a bit too far-fetched, it isn't.

 

The show talks about a maid cafe where a normal day was rolling when suddenly, people realized that one of the customer's presents was a freaking zombie.

 

Chaos unfolded and soon enough, a few more people got transformed into zombies. However, things weren't as horrible as you might expect.

 

What happened is that the experienced maid shows up to get a hold of the matter. And realizes that some of the working maids have transformed into zombies as well.

 

However, this transformation might very well be a blessing in disguise.

 

 

31. Seoul Station

 

Seoul Station

 

This show will give you goosebumps all the time you are watching it. And that's why it is ranked here on our list.

 

The show talks about the Seoul Station which got infested with zombies. And soon enough, they spread extremely fast and were reaching every corner of the world.

 

As the show progresses, we see our main cast panicking since the government has locked down the Seoul station.

 

And now, all those who are within that station will have no choice but to survive as long as they can.

 

They can't escape. They must run. Run as fast as they can. Because their life depends on it. If they fall short, they will be gone for good. And that's why they are here.

Coming in from the Resident Evil 4, as have Incubate. This installment is another great piece that you need to watch if you are into Resident Evil.

 

However, it won't exactly give you something new. But it will definitely give you the narrative recap that you need.

 

This movie is just a summary of the entire story that was placed in the Resident Evil 4 game. And this is why the movie is in CGI animation.

 

The idea behind this is to group up all the major happenings of the game and portray them in a form of a story that will act as a pure narrative piece with its own appreciation and criticisms from the fans of Resident Evil.

 

There's a reason why people love this franchise so much.

 

 

29. Chainsaw Maid

 

Chainsaw Maid

 

Well well, a terrifying experience is hidden under this title. And there's no denying that the anime will give you a special feeling altogether.

 

Chainsaw Maid is a series where a household is attacked by zombies. And that household consisted of a maid, a father, and a daughter.

 

With all these characters confined in one place now, things won't be looking great for them. Why? Because those lethal zombies are arriving with full force.

 

And they won't stop. Not at all. Instead, they will make sure that they take down all of those who thrive in this house.

 

And that's why Chainsaw Maid is so crucial for all those who love to enjoy their zombie-oriented series. Plus, it uses stop motion so the effects are even more impactful.

 

 

28. Calamity of a Zombie Girl

 

Calamity of a Zombie Girl

 

The series has a befitting title for itself. And soon you will realize why. The premise is quite simple.

 

Two girls enter library storage and come across antique mummies who happened to have a special stone over them.

 

And the moment these girls take a look at that stone, things start to go in the wrong direction.

 

Soon enough, the girls realize that these mummies are becoming alive and now they are looking for the stone that is apparently taken away from them.

 

The only way to put an end to all this will be by putting an end to the zombie girls.

 

However, will that be possible? And if yes, then who is going to do so and how? That's what makes this anime, an experience of its own.

Another entry from the legendary Resident Evil franchise. I bet you weren't expecting that. However, we can't help it.

 

The franchise has a ton of great installments under its belt that use the Zombie element amazingly well. And this is just one of them.

 

The series focuses on an era after the incidents that took place in Racoon City. Two characters named Leon and Claire happened to come across the news about a bunch of creatures ravaging the White House.

 

And now, they are supposed to make sure that nothing horrible happens. However, that isn't going to be an easy task after all. They must strive and work their hardest to take down those monsters.

These two individuals are Leon Kennedy and Rebecca Chambers. And this newly formed froyo is going to take care of a merchant who is out there seeking revenge.

Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress isn't exactly based on Zombies. However, the creatures mentioned within the narrative resemble Zombies very closely.

 

And that's why they are recognized as zombies by the general fandom. This movie is another recap movie that goes on about all the happenings in the storyline of the original Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress series.

 

And this isn't the only movie made like that. There are a few more such movies that a Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress fan must watch at all costs.

 

That's how immersive they are for fans. And overall, they may not be something you have never seen before, but they are definitely something that you will enjoy as a viewer.

Genius Party tells us about a bunch of characters and gives us short stories that depict different situations and those characters being placed in those situations.

 

The important thing to note here is that Genius Party is a series that is so unique in its method of expression that a lot of fans take the time to get a hold of it.

 

And because of that, the series manages to capture a lot of attention from the fandom as they tell their narratives to the most curious of viewers looking forward to some fun.

This is another one of the Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress movies that have a recap of things that took place in the original series.

 

This one is created by WIT studio and the way they manage to replicate the essence of the show is incredible.

 

WIT Studio is known for its ability to depict old-age themes with incredible art and design. And this is why Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress turned out to be so immersive.

 

And in this movie, we get to see how important the storyline is for the viewers. The anime takes place in a certain location which is surrounded by walls and happens to quite resemble Attack On Titan.

 

This is one of the reasons why Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress is one of the notable entries on our list.

This is the second season of the popular anime series that goes by the name Zombieland Saga. And if you have watched the original Zombieland Saga, you would know how entertaining of a show it is.

 

This one focuses on other characters present in the show and their exposition with more and more events taking place.

 

Zombieland Saga, as a title, happens to be extremely good with its sound attributes. Since it is a music-oriented anime, it has incredible voice acting and background music selections that just make the viewer's experience so much better.

 

This is why Zombieland Saga is one of the most sought-after Zombie anime of its era.

 

 

21. The Empire of Corpses

 

The Empire of Corpses

 

This anime has a ton going on within itself. And that's why it is ranked so high on our list.

 

The show talks about a world where corpses are reanimated to be used as laborers for the general people.

 

However, the important thing is that they don't have a soul within them. Therefore, things don't work out as you might expect.

 

However, a guy named John Watson wanted to give life to his late friend so badly that he came across research papers by Dr. Frankenstein who was the only one in history to have successfully created a corpse back into life with a soul.

 

However, he must ensure that these papers don't get into the wrong hands. Or else, things won't be looking great for John.

Various types of fish and sharks are on their way to using their ferocious teeth to take down the human race.

 

Finding someone you love in this situation won't exactly be easy. However, Kaori is willing to give it all.

Zombieland Saga is not an anime that you would wanna watch if you want some action in your zombie anime.

 

However, if you wish to look at life from a Zombie's perspective then this is the only show for you.

And although Zombie idols may seem quite far-fetched, he manages to do so regardless of whatever happens to him.

 

As the show progresses, we see the hardships that this idol group faces as they try to become the best idols possible.

 

And being a zombie may be advantageous at times but it is still the biggest drawback of the characters.

The series begins with a ton of fun things taking place altogether. For example, Ayumu breaks Haruna's magic chainsaw and manages to get himself ashamed as well.

 

And how does he manage to do so? Well by revealing to the entire school that he likes pink dresses.

 

Yeah, this is only the beginning of the greatness that this show has to offer. And that's why it is ranked so high on our list.

When it comes to great Zombie anime, there's no denying that Sankarea is a tough contender. The show is quite basic with its narrative but manages to touch a lot of emotions altogether.

 

The anime talks about a guy named Chihiro who has always dreamed of a zombie girlfriend. However, his luck hasn't been all that great about it.

 

But things change when one day, one of her beloved cats ends up dying. He tries to revive that cat by creating a potion.

 

However, things take interesting turns when a girl accidentally drinks that potion and turns into a zombie. And this is where it all begins.

 

My boy wanted a zombie girlfriend. And although it seemed impossible, he did manage to make it happen.

This is just a special episode of the awesome Highschool Of The Dead anime series. If you guys don't know, the original series is an ecchi one so the narrative always tries to place hot moments for the viewers.

 

And this episode is essentially a compiled version of all the fan service that the show can offer. It plays around with all kinds of lewd jokes and sets the story on an Island where our main character is residing.

 

Soon enough, we get to see some fairly unique scenes. And let's just say that the fans of Highschool Of The Dead would love those scenes.

 

All in all, this episode is amazing if you are heavily into ecchi and all that kind of stuff. This is why it is ranked so high.

Well well, looks like it is finally time to talk about the original series. Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress talks about a nation that is pillaged by inhuman creatures called Kabane.

 

They are a lot stronger than humans and only have 1 weak spot on their body. Humanity has managed to survive for years by caging themselves behind walls.

 

However, our main character is not going to stay caged all his life. And so, he gets on board a train that allows the passengers to go from one place to another.

 

And here is when our main cast will realize how lethal their situation is. After all, there's nothing that comes close to making you read your life than death. And that's what makes Kabaneri so good.

Although this isn't exactly a series with zombie apocalypse and action in its narrative, if you want some anime with a life perspective of a zombie, then this is the show for you.

 

The story focuses on a guy named Ayumu who was killed in his previous life. However, he was then reincarnated as a zombie and transformed into a magical girl.

 

Yeah, that's what happens. Moreover, now he is living in an environment with monsters all around him and his job is to take them down.

 

Will he be able to find his killer? And what else does life have in store for our boy?

 

That's exactly what we will see in this show. And this is what makes the anime so impressive in the first place.

And the number 1 spot on our list goes to none other than Highschool Of the Dead. And this shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone whatsoever.

 

Highschool Of The Dead is a series that continues to make more and more fans, even though it won't be having another season.

 

The story talks about a bunch of students getting caught up in their school as a zombie apocalypse takes place.

 

People are dying left and right and those who are surviving must run for their lives. This is where our main cast manages to pave their way out of the school and eventually search for a shelter.

 

Will there be an end to this chase, ever? This show has all the elements that you can ask for from a Zombie anime.

 

Action, drama, ecchi, romance, etc. And that's why it deserves to be at the top of our list.
