In March of 2023, Murata announced that he was working on an original anime and posted the project’s first part in two separate tweets.
Zaiyuki is a story about a young kappa who doesn’t act like one: he doesn’t know how to swim, he always loses in sumo matches, and he hates cucumbers.
He tries to redeem his worth as a kappa by waging his all in a lottery and winning the grand prize of a package tour to India.
But he gets into trouble as soon as he arrives at the airport.
