Sarazanmai is a anime series that was created by Kunihiko Ikuhara. The series takes place when two middle school students accidentally break a statue of a Kappa who serves as a guardian of Asakusa. Kazuki, Toi, and Enta were transformed into Kappa by Keppi when they refer to him as a frog. In order to revert back into their original forms, Keppi instructs them to fight kappa zombies, they must collect the dishes of hope. The dishes of hope can fulfill the wishes of who ever possess them. They must fight together, only together can they create the sound that is needed to defeat the zombies. Every time the sound is made, their secrets began to reveal themselves and they become more connected.
When I first saw this series, I was attracted to it by the cover and the promise of comedic moments. I did the wrong thing and went in blind without reading the synopsis of the series or anything about it for that matter. The series is a big what the fuck, I was so confused and a tad bit horrified the whole first episode. I’m all for weird wtf anime but this one takes the cake and is beyond me.
I would rather not watch a series about 8th graders and their butts. This series isn’t for me, I’m not all about Kappa’s going and stealing an organ from their anus in order to transform them into kappa’s, I’m also not into them fighting zombies the same way. They go into too much detail, haha it’s just too much for my eyes. So I’m gonna have to sit out on the rest of the series.
How ever, I hear that a lot of people like this series for some reason. A lot of it has to do with the wow factor, so I would suggest you try and watch the first episode and see how you do with it. Be aware though, that it is incredibly strange, and I don’t even think it’s in a good sense.
