So, here I go with my first review.

Joshiraku is not the typical moe anime due to the fact that it was created by Kohji Kumeta. For those who are not aware of Kohji Kumeta, he is the person behind Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei. This work is different from SZS because the girls of Joshiraku are just cute rakugo girls, unlike the students at SZS, where everyone has a certain disorder, if you can put it in that way.

There is this notion hanging above my head once I watch Joshiraku:
"This anime is full of ordinary dialogue so that the viewers can fully enjoy how cute the read more

"Which do you prefer? Left or Right? Me...I prefer down...I like to look down." Kukuru. Joshiraku was my surprise hit of the 2012 season and honestly I'm surprised that I have not seen more love for this series. This show isn't about being a politically correct melodrama that'll make you shed a few tears for the beautifully crafted characters...It's just FUNNY! Kouji Kumeta's stories are supposed to be taken with an open mind and if you are willing to come at this series willing to make fun of anything then this series will have you looking at the world in a whole different light.

YOSH! Slice of Life Comedy review here we go!
Joshiraku is an anime adaptaion of a manga from the same creator of Sayonara Zetsubou Sensei.
Now now, I found this anime by chance but as an avid fan of comedies I couldn't ignore it.
Joshiraku is quite the interesting and funny anime. Be it the interactions between the characters, the parodies or the "breaking of the 4th wall" thingy.
Let us begin

Story:
As a slice of life comedy anime, it doesn't have a specific plot nor anything serious. It does, though, have continuity. Meaning that what happened in an episode will "affect" the future ones, which read more

First of all, Story! This is not about Rakugo. That's all what I want to say.

It is 'Comedy, Slice of life', but that girls talking about political problems, Japanese jokes, Kumeta Koji's individual think pretty much.

Japan (like Fukushima), Other countries like South/North Korea, China and Russia, Fuji TV, other anime... I think that is suit for his twitter or talk show.
And there are tons of talks for only in Japan, maybe you guys can't understand that means without Google search.
Of course, this animation on aired about 2.5 years ago, some of these jokes are old-dated now.

Characters and artwork are good, Yasu and staffs worked nice. read more
