    Kazuki Yasaka, an 8th grader living in Asakusa, is turned into a Kappa along with his classmates Toi and Enta by a mysterious creature named Keppi, after they break inadvertently a statue of a Kappa, the guardian god of the city.

    They are then ordered by Keppi, who claims to be the first heir to the throne of Kappa Kingdom, to fight against the Kapa-zombies, bioarms created by his enemies, if they want to return to their human form. In order to kill them, they have to make a specific sound called "Sarazanmai" which is produced only when the three of them are united, but the three boys cannot connect at first.

    In addition, one of their secrets is revealed to each other every time they emit the sound!

    They finally accept to take risks to collect the "Plates of Hope," given by Keppi when they defeat the Kapa-zombies, and which can make their wishes come true. However, some trouble occurs over the plates...! Along the course of the fights against the Kapa-zombies, their fierce past and inner conflicts keep getting revealed. This is the sarcastic fantasy of three boys who don't feel connected to their important ones, getting to realize the real meaning of bonds.

    Episode 1

    Kappas vs. Zombies.

    That was just very strange, from guys transforming into kappas to all those zombies and other weird stuff going on. But that is to be expected from Kinuhiko Inuhara since that's what he is known for, and it feels very much like something Shaft would make. It's a good thing Amazon backed off on their Noitamina deal as that paved the way for Kappazon to deliver packages.

    So like always, trial rules apply and a couple more episodes are in order before definitively saying whether this is a go or a no-go.

      Episode 2

      The cat's out of the bag.

      And the weirdness just continues as there's a cat chase, yaoi cops, and even more kappa transformations as it all started because Kuji decided to put some drugs in a bag of cat food, and Nyantaro snatched it. And that led to some pretty amusing moments there as that cat ended up becoming a zombie before the kappa squad did its things to save the day.

        Episode 3

        Get a kick out of kisu.

        And now for the next episode of Yaoi Kappa Arashi, it's all about kisu and soccer. Kazuki and Enta used to be teammates, but Kazuki has since quit the team and Enta is determined to bring him back. Things didn't go well with that fight against two players from the team they won against last year. And then just full-blown weirdness afterwards where it is revealed that the two actually kissed while making sashimi out of that kisu monster. The show just continues its weirdness streak as this show is doing way too many weird things that I'm not so sure anymore what this show is all about.
