    Sarazanmai
    さらざんまい

    Synopsis

    Kazuki Yasaka, an 8th grader living in Asakusa, is turned into a Kappa along with his classmates Toi and Enta by a mysterious creature named Keppi, after they break inadvertently a statue of a Kappa, the guardian god of the city.

    They are then ordered by Keppi, who claims to be the first heir to the throne of Kappa Kingdom, to fight against the Kapa-zombies, bioarms created by his enemies, if they want to return to their human form. In order to kill them, they have to make a specific sound called "Sarazanmai" which is produced only when the three of them are united, but the three boys cannot connect at first.

    In addition, one of their secrets is revealed to each other every time they emit the sound!

    They finally accept to take risks to collect the "Plates of Hope," given by Keppi when they defeat the Kapa-zombies, and which can make their wishes come true. However, some trouble occurs over the plates...! Along the course of the fights against the Kapa-zombies, their fierce past and inner conflicts keep getting revealed. This is the sarcastic fantasy of three boys who don't feel connected to their important ones, getting to realize the real meaning of bonds.

    This show, man... I don't know how to describe it other than "very weird"... It's funny and certainly brings a lot of entertainment value, and I'll definitely keep watching, but I'm not quite sure what's going on.

    Recommending this to:

    @miss_SMP you read the mango, now watch the amine
    @Robin-Senpai Is The Best you're weird, you'll probably like it
    @Chaudfontaine you like weird stuff, you might enjoy this
    @Kia there's butt stuff

    LMAO. I mean... I don’t even know what that says about me or what you think about me. I’d be offended but I’m too damned curious and am obviously going to go check it out—eventually (if/when I remember and have time). Thanks dealer/enabler. ^_^

    As funny as the first episode was that butt stuff was absolutely ridonkulous and over the top. I thought I was ready when the obachan mentioned it but I was so not ready for the reality of what was to come in the extractions, I get the feeling that the show is going to turn into something with real feels especially in light of how they’ve shown the dynamics between the cross-dresser, his best friend and the girl in addition to the strangeness and the humor and I’m digging that combination. ^_^

    Totally called it—all the feels happened. Apparently I thought Haruka was a little girl instead of his little brother but whatever that was ages ago now lol. The important part is that the show has layers. It’s more than just weird butt stuff and off the wall desires. Also, what kind of Kappa is the idol and why is no one mentioning this fact? Just saying.

    episode 1. what the actual duck. Actual people invested in this.

    deeper meanings analysis:
    -The show opens with the main character, Kazu running, and then wind being swept across his face. This is all a reference to the 2018 anime Run with the Wind, or, Kaze ga Tsuyoku Fuiteiru
    (lol)
    -Partway through the show the three main character turn into kappa. This is of course a reference to the popular internet slang “kappa,” and indicates that everything from this point onwards is intended ironically and should not be taken seriously.
    (is this twitch. wtf)
    -The show makes continuous references to boxes. All of the main characters desire boxes, and at the episode’s climax a box gets wet. This is a subtle reference to female genitalia. Ikuhara is not above including sex jokes, but he does so only with his trademark careful discretion and class.
    (ofcourse vaginas had to be included, otherwise it wouldn't be an anime)

    more here

    this anime gave me more wtf moments than Hametsu No Mars

    Edit episode 2
    I can't get used to the sailer moon extractions
    "battle" sequence is exactly the same, a bit lazy but probably because of the funny aspect
    The ending sequence with is pretty cool with the real world background
    why am i not suprised by that last 5 seconds of episode 2
