Taito-ku, Tokyo


This original anime, set in the historically-rich district of Asakusa, is directed by Kunihiko Ikuhara, the mind behind masterpieces such as Revolutionary Girl Utena. Three boys in their 2nd year of junior high school, Kazuki Yasaka, Toi Kuji, and Enta Jinnai, encounter a strange creature that resembles a “kappa”, a mystical creature from Japanese folklore. One day, the three of them have their “shirikodama” (a fictional organ located within the anus) pulled out, which made them turn into kappa themselves. If they want to turn back into humans, they’re told, they will have to bring back the shirikodama of  zombies. To make their wishes come true, the three fight zombies in kappa form.
