Plot Summary: Struggling manga artist Hideo Suzuki who suffers from hallucinations and delusions lives a very unfulfilling life and is tired of being a background character in his own life. His life and the world however are quickly turned upside down as a deadly zombie virus known as "zqn" runs rampant in Japan. Hideo with nothing but a backpack and a shotgun then flees the city in a turn of events finds others both friend and foe as this epic zombie psychological thriller asks the question: who is the greatest enemy--the dead or the living.
