Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu

Drama, Daily Life - 2016 (TV)
Ranking: 128

The year was 1970s. Fascinated by the performance of rakugo master Yakumo the 8th at a philanthropic show in a prison, delinquent Kyōji visited Yakumo immediately after serving his term, begging Yakumo to take him in as an apprentice. To his surprise, master Yakumo agreed without much hesitation, yet things progressed not quite as Kyōji expected. . (Source: ANN)

Nihon Review





Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu demonstrates some of the best of what anime has to offer.  It’s a beautiful character-driven story told though an expressive and uncommon art form. While Yakumo does finish telling his own story in these thirteen episodes, it’s clear the tale is not yet complete. I for one am looking forward to more. - Nihon Review


They are a reminder of the eternality of art (even if the world changes) and those who create it (regardless of history that burns and rises). So even when the shamisen stops playing, and the dimly-lit theatre stands alone, we can still hear the stories of Sukeroku and Kiku, and Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu is proud to do us that favor. - MyAnimeList (Fleure)
