Yusuke Murata is raring to get his next project in the public's eye as he offers his followers a teaser of a new anime he's working on with their new studio. Village Studio, which he founded, is working on Zaiyuki, an anime that follows a weak kappa child going on a grand adventure.
While very little is known about this new anime, it's known that it's inspired by Journey to the West, which has inspired tons of IPs, including Dragon Ball. Fans aren't even entirely sure about the plans for the upcoming animation and whether Murata plans an entire anime series, an OVA, or a film to kick it all off. We also aren't sure precisely what audience he's looking to capture, but judging by the style in the short teaser, it'll likely play to his strengths and be more action-focused.
Zaiyuki also may have some form of coming-of-age demeanor to it, but we'll have to wait and see. Odds are, it's still a ways out, and all Murata is trying to do is drum up some attention and make sure people know that something good's on its way.
Murata has found a large following primarily because of his detail-oriented drawings for One-Punch Man.
