Fujisaki is best known for the series Hōshin Engi, which was adapted into an anime series and a number of radio dramas, as well as having spawned five video games and cameos in a sixth. Hōshin Engi is currently being considered for a remake by Shomei TV.[2] His most recent completed project is an adaptation of Fuyumi Ono's novel Shiki, which has also gone on to be made into an anime.
