Sara!! Sara!! Sara!!


Before you read the review you should know you do not have to watch other Ikuhara anime before this one. It is his shortest anime (11 episodes) and it is filled with good writing even though he mostly has made long shows (39 and 24 episodes) Sarazanmai is the most underrated show this season generating a low 7 MAL score when it should be a high 8. It is full of interesting symbolism, gorgeous animation, hilarious comedy, and the most intense anal action we have seen in an anime thats not weird fetish hentai.

Story: 10/10
Three kids turn into gay frogs when a kappa eats them and extracts their kappa zombie through their asses. They have to dive head first into the anuses of dead perverts to extract their desires so that they can make a wish. I don’t know about you but that's creativity to me.

Art: 10/10
Well what did you expect from the studio that made Kakegurui and Yuri on Ice?? The sakuga is incredible. I love the dances and all of the animation. It is very similar to Monogatari at times and SHAFTs art.

Character: 10/10
Kazuki, Enta, and Toi are all great characters, they get more development in 4 episodes then 99% of the shows this season.

Music: 10/10
The frogs sing, the otter cops sing, the opening is hype, and the ending is from the band that made the Bunny Girl op. They could add a music tag with all of the insert songs and they are all 10/10. I would listen to the whole soundtrack on repeat.

Enjoyment: 10/10
A thrill ride that never stops. Half of the show is pure enjoyment and sex jokes, the other half is metaphors that take a lot of attention from us viewers to comprehend fully. It is definitely worth your attention like any good puzzle. If an anime that challenges you to read between the lines and understand its message is what you're looking for then you will surely enjoy a poignant adventure.

Step aside Attack on Titan, make way for Sarazanmai the real AOTY.
