Sarazanmai is an upcoming original TV anime series directed by creative artist Kunihiko Ikuhara (Revolutionary Girl Utena, Mawaru Penguindrum) that is set to finally begin airing from Thursday 11th April 2019 on Fuji Television’s Noitamina block.
There are many keywords buzzing around the anime’s original and well written storyline which strikes our curiosity, such as Kappa (a Japanese folklore demon) and Shirikodama ( a mythical organ that kappa steal from the anus). From the exciting cast members to Sarazanmai’s collaboration with sushi chain store Sushizanmai, there is just so much going on to raise the tension for anime fans. Finally, just as the first episode is about to air, a small snippet and storyline summary have been unveiled.
The story is set in Asakusa, Tokyo. Three students in their second year of middle school, namely Kazuki Yasaka, Toi Kuji, and Enta Jinai, encounter a kappa named Keppi, who claims to be the heir to the throne of the Kappa Kingdom. Keppi steals the students’ shirikodama, transforming the students into kappa. What mission do the three friends have to complete in order to return to their original human forms?
The start of Sarazanmai marks the first day you can plunge deeper than you ever could into Kunihiko Ikuhara’s world. Don’t miss out on the first broadcast!
