"Samurai Frog Golf" then won the Best 3D Animation at the Neum Animated Film Festival in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which was held from August 27 to September 1. The anime short is also an Official Selection to several upcoming and recently-held film festivals in Japan and around the world:

  • Animation Volda Festival (Norway)
  • SEMANA ¡VIVA EL CINE! (Argentina)

Marza Animation Planet describes the story:

A retired frog samurai wants nothing more than to be left alone and spend his remaining years in peace on the golf course. But when he unwillingly becomes the protector of a baby turtle he must draw his club for one more round.

The anime's staff members include:

Marza Animation Planet, a subsidiary of Sega Sammy Holdings and TMS Entertainment, produced the CG-animated film Lupin III THE FIRST in 2019, and created the visual effects for the two Sonic the Hedgehog Hollywood movies.
