Kobushi is a French animated television series created by Zagtoon in 2009.


After an episode of Kobushi, you’ll never see sushi in the same light again. When a fancy sushi restaurant, Kobushi, closes down for the night, the sushis come to life, spending the entire evening avoiding traps set by the famous white porcelain cat, Manekineko, who has also awakened, and with an appetite for fish! To the porcelain cat’s constant dismay, the mini-sushi heroes put up quite the powerful fight, as energy-packed and action-ready martial arts experts. So sit back with another cup of tea and enjoy the fabulous tales of crazy, funny BANZAI!
