Seven Seas Entertainment made a new license acquisition over the weekend with the pickup of the Sarazanmai Anthology manga. This book was put together by various creators and is a collection of over a dozen short stories based on the hit anime by Kunihiko Ikuhara (Sailor Moon, Revolutionary Girl Utena, PENGUINDRUM)!
The publisher will bring this out for the first time in North America in print and on digital platforms in a single large-trim edition. It’s scheduled for a June 2021 release priced at $13.99 USA / $17.99 CAN.
Plot Concept: After accidentally breaking a statue of a mythical 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 kappa born of twisted human desires. Even scarier, though? They’re going to have to expose their own deepest fears and desires to each other to do so! Explore this surrealist modern folktale–a fan-favorite anime in 2019–like never before in this collection of all-new short manga by various creators!
