Sarazanmai (Light Novel) Vol. 1 Manga
(W) Kunihiko Ikuhara
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. 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! This surrealist modern folktale, which was a fan-favorite anime in 2019, is now a 2-volume novel series by the original writers of the show!
