This show is proof that anime is a medium that can be used for wonderful narrative storytelling. Period drama with some light comedy.
Fantastic historical drama that drips with passion about the time period, and the underappreciated art-form of Rakugo.
Just fucking watch it, ok?
More than just a tribute to its art, it’s a tribute to time itself and our ever changing lives through the ages.
Wow. WOW! I couldn’t have expected something like this from Studio Deen. Atmospheric, captivating, and heartfelt.
Certainly, an amazing drama that simply tells the story of life for what particular man and his dying art.
Beautiful understated anime about time, tradition and identity told through the Japanese art of Rakugo.
