Yūsuke Murata Reveals Zaiyuki Anime Project with Village Studio

Yusuke Murata is a Japanese manga artist and animator best known for his work on author One’s One-Punch Man, which was published in the Weekly Young Jump online edition.

On Monday, One-Punch Man and Eyeshield 21 manga creator Ysuke Murata’s personal Twitter account unveiled the first section of his Zaiyuki anime project with Village Studio. Murata shared the first portion of the anime project in two tweets, without music or English subtitles, and mentioned in the second tweet that he is presently working on an original animation.

Once the A part was completed, I put subtitles on it and put it together. Split 1/2 because it’s heavy.

The first episode of the anime project features Zaiyuki, a young kappa (Japanese mythological creature) who doesn’t behave like one: he can’t swim, always loses sumo bouts, and despises cucumbers. He attempts to prove his value as a kappa by entering a lottery and earning the big reward of a package trip to India. But the problem begins as soon as he lands at the airport.

Split 2/2. I am working on an original animation.

Meanwhile, Murata’s other significant work is his collaboration with writer Riichiro Inagaki on the American football novel Eyeshield 21, which was well-received by fans. The new anime by Murata is sure to be a huge success.
