I decided to write a fun post for the final day of the #AtoZChallenge. Usually when people think of zombies they think of reanimated corpses who are hungry for brains. Here they are any character who acts or responds in a mechanical or apathetic manner. These characters are highly common in anime, however they appear frequently here in the West in crime, fantasy, and science fiction.
If you want to write such a character just have them act in a way that makes it appear as though they don’t care at all for other people, and have them react in a manner that appears highly logical as in no emotion at all involved.
Of course you can also write the monster zombies into your stories, but make sure to make them your own. Don’t just have them be corpses reanimated by a necromancer or a disease. Do something else and make your own creation.
