The Adventures of FUGU & TAKO

After becoming fish mutants, FUGU & TAKO must battle against their own ineptitude, a legion of yakuza, and a Godzilla-like monster in an epic journey to find the one person who can return them to normal, the Sushi Chef who transformed them.

What people are saying about FUGU & TAKO.....!!!

"Bravo!" "Dooopeee...." "Brilliant!" "Fantastic!" "Wow!" "Sugoi!" "Wonderful!" "Amazing!" "Awesome work!" "An instant classic!"

"Mind numbingly brilliant !!!"

Where the story started....

FUGU & TAKO started their journey in a film about two Japanese salary men whose lives literally transform when one of them eats a live puffer fish in a sushi bar. With incredible visual effects and a great story the film has gained a huge following online.

With the encouragement of fans, and the demand to see more of FUGU & TAKO's adventures, we're continuing their story in a graphic novel. 

FUGU & TAKO will literally be diving in the deep end as they face greater challenges in this new chapter. Kicking off from where the film ended we'll see these unlikely heroes harness the full power of their fishy faculties to battle against an enemy of Godzilla proportions. Not since Batman & Robin have we seen such a compelling, dynamic duo!

It's the journey from Karaoke to Karate!!!!

Risks and challenges

We have a revised budget based on our previous Kickstarter Campaign. It accurately accounts for the real printing costs based on those statistics.

The ocean is deep but we're feeling confident FUGU & TAKO can swim the distance. With over 15 years of design, visual effects and storytelling experience supporting the production of this graphic novel, it's gonna be nothing short of Awesome!!!!

As with any project there may be delays or setbacks along the way. That's why we have a healthy schedule for delivery on December 2015 for the final Graphic Novel.
