When the zombies start entering the store, she remain calm and all of the sudden pushes Akira to the ground. Moments later, a truck rams into the store killing all the zombies there.

Earlier that day, a woman named Shizuka was also thinking about the apocalypse. Interestingly, she was the one who had saved Akira from the truck. Unlike Akira who has not taken the zombie apocalypse seriously, Shizuka really plans every single step from day one. Every morning she wakes up and makes sure that she is physically active by exercising- while listening to the daily news. It turns out that the situation is getting worse every day and there has been no official word from the government until now.

Some even fear that the zombies have overtaken the entire country and there is no organized government to deal with the threat. If this is true then everyone is destined to defend themselves. Shizuka is quite objective about the threats in the present circumstances and has a very balanced view of the whole scenario. She makes concrete plans about everything that she plans to do now. From her apartment, Shizuka closely observes the movements of the zombies and comes to the conclusion that they are of two kinds typically. They either run fast or slow. Judging which one is which can be critical to one’s survival.

With this critical knowledge, she left home that day to collect some crucial supplies so that she can live safely without worrying about basic necessities. She used a bicycle to go to the shop and had installed a camera on it, to monitor the situation outside when she was collecting all the necessary supplies. Shizuka notices Akira coming inside the store and that’s why she knows that he is not a threat. It is the same camera that allows her to see the oncoming truck that she eventually protects Akira from.
