A young man passes a pet shop on his way home, and seeing a kappa in the window, decides to buy it on a whim. He brings the creature home, and names him Kaatan. He's never owned a kappa before, so he relies heavily on a book he purchased on the subject of raising and training kappa. The book gives several good tips for bringing up a smart and well behaved kappa, and it all seems very simple. Unfortunately, putting these techniques into practice and actually making them work is not quite as easy as the book implies. Kaatan seems to understand things at first, but usually ends up either forgetting what he's learned, or isn't interested in learning in the first place. However, this particular young man has a lot of patience, and continues his possibly fruitless effort to raise Kaatan into a pet he can be proud of.


Saisons & épisodes Les résumés de tous les épisodes de Kappa no Kaikata

S01E01 Episode 1 00/00/0000 Watashi stops by a pet shop on the way home. He spots a kappa on display in the window and buys it, seemingly on impulse. But not unprepared, Watashi refers to his book on raising kappa wherein he quickly learns his first lesson regarding the diet of a kappa.
S01E02 Episode 2 00/00/0000 Today, Watashi attempts to coax Kaatan, his kappa, from his kennel with a toy. After a short time, he decides to teach Kaatan some resistance exercises, but not without consequences!
S01E03 Episode 3 00/00/0000 Kaatan has been behaving mischievously! Watashi does the only thing he knows how to do and refers to his book on raising kappa. Hmm, training a kappa.. not like a dog... toothpicks... interesting...
S01E04 Episode 4 00/00/0000 The behaviour training appears to be going well, however as Watashi soon realises there is still much work to do! Although... perhaps teaching a kappa to shake hands isn't an absolute necessity?
S01E05 Episode 5 00/00/0000 Time for potty training! After trying to dig holes in the tatami mats and generally creating a mess of the apartment, Watashi decides to take to this important training task. However, as seems to be the recurring case, it's not as easy as he at first imagines.
S01E06 Episode 6 00/00/0000 Watashi takes Kaatan back to visit the pet store. While there they see a long-unsold kappa with a wounded shell, causing Watashi to ponder over why he chose the particular creature he did.
S01E07 Episode 7 00/00/0000 Watashi has a visitor, but Kaatan is not impressed! She brings her Kappa, Kyuu-chan, with her with which Kaatan is impressed even less! What starts as a bit of a tussle escalates into a violent exchange!
S01E08 Episode 8 00/00/0000 Sakamoto-san, Watashi's friend, is still visiting. They are getting along fine, and Kyuu-chan is having plenty of fun, but just leave it up to Kaatan to show him up! Punishment is in order... but maybe things will turn up?
S01E09 Episode 9 00/00/0000 Potty training continues. Watashi and Kaatan go for a mostly uneventful walk through the park. Watashi becomes extremely self-righteous about dog owners not cleaning up after their pets, however he is not without mistakes of his own!
S01E10 Episode 10 00/00/0000 It's a walk in the park again (a different one, due to the problems faced last time). Kaatan meets some other kappa and has a ball (game). The fun and games can't last forever, though. Enter Hercules.
S01E11 Episode 11 00/00/0000 In this episode we learn about Hercules, the intimidating 10-year-old kappa (30 in human years) who hangs around a park bench. Possibly because he's tied up there. He scares kids, grown-ups and fellow kappa alike.
S01E12 Episode 12 00/00/0000 Today we find out a little more about kappa and the mythology surrounding them. Remember: be careful around kappa, they might have their eyes on your spirit ball. With this in mind, though, we won't recommend taking everything you hear in this episode as fact!
S01E13 Episode 13 00/00/0000 Continuing from the previous episode, and clearing up some confusion and misinformation bestowed upon Watashi, we learn a little more about kappa and their habits. Thanks for the reliable information, Sakamoto-san!
S01E14 Episode 14 00/00/0000 Another kappa mystery unravelled! Watashi discovers the truth about Hercules at last, could it be that Kaatan was right all along in not being afraid of him? Or perhaps he really does crush children's skulls??
S01E15 Episode 15 00/00/0000 Watashi behaves extremely irresponsibly in this episode by falling asleep on a park bench and leaving Kaatan unattended. After wondering off by himself and a brief altercation with a dog, Chii (formerly Hercules) saves the day.
S01E16 Episode 16 00/00/0000 Swimming lessons. Or maybe these are drowning lessons, it appears so! You may have thought that swimming comes naturally to kappa, but as usual, Kaatan is completely hopeless when it comes to learning something new.
S01E17 Episode 17 00/00/0000 Finally Kaatan is taking to water and appears to quite enjoy the idea of swimming. Unfortunately, kappa aren't allowed into the local swimming pool, so the group head back down to the river. It can bit a little dangerous, but.. oh no, where's Kakkun!?
S01E18 Episode 18 00/00/0000 Watashi refers to the Swimming Volume of the How to Raise a Kappa series of books. Join us to discover the slightly disturbing secrets of how to get a kappa to swim successfully!
S01E19 Episode 19 00/00/0000 More swimming lessons for Kaatan. This time Watashi goes down to the river with Mr Tadokoro, a local businessman with an unfortunate past. Kaatan does well, however Mr Tasokoro's kappa, Maa, does not have such a good time.
S01E20 Episode 20 00/00/0000 Finally it's Sunday and everyone heads down to the ocean! Fortunately Sakamoto-san is there to advise everyone that kappa need to wear sunblock and also to peddle her goods, as usual!
S01E21 Episode 21 00/00/0000 More fun down at the beach. Kaatan and friends play the popular Japanese beach game suikawari, which involves locating and smashing open a watermelon while blindfolded. Uh-oh, a shark!
S01E22 Episode 22 00/00/0000 It seems that Kaatan has "summer lethargy". Watashi takes the blame for Kaatan's fever as he neglected to apply sunblock when they went to the beach earlier. When the fever doesn't go down, Watashi takes Kaatan to the hospital on Sakamoto's advice.
S01E23 Episode 23 00/00/0000 Watashi and Kaatan are going for a walk when they spot Kakkun walking alone. It turns out that he's been sent on an errand but is under surveillance in case something goes wrong.
S01E24 Episode 24 00/00/0000 Following the success of Kakkun's outing, it has become a mini-craze amongst kappa owners to send their kappa on errands (under close surveillance, of course). Surprisingly, for once, Kaatan appears to do better than the others, however that may still not be quite enough...
S01E25 Episode 25 00/00/0000 Chii seems to have a penchant for music - or at least for musical instruments! There's a trumpet in the music store window that he has his eye on, and generous Kakkun seems to want to help him buy it with the money he's been earning running errands... but isn't 18,000 yen a little steep for him?
S01E26 Episode 26 00/00/0000 There's a crisis at home and Watashi has to head straight back to the remote area by train.
