Based on the hit anime by Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, PENGUINDRUM), three boys are transformed into mythical creatures with a mission in this action-filled LGBT+ comedy about friendship, secrets, and growing up. And don't miss the manga spin-off, Sarazanmai: Reo and Mabu!

After accidentally breaking a statue of a kappa, junior high students Kazuki, Toi, and Enta are transformed into kappa themselves as punishment by Keppi, prince of the Kappa Kingdom. Keppi has a task for the boys if they want their bodies back: work for him to hunt down zombie kappas! Can the boys complete their mission--even if it means exposing their own darkest, deepest fears and desires to each other?
