Synopsis

Bundled with the special editions of the manga's 7th and 8th volumes.

When a certain man is released from prison, he knows exactly where he's heading first. After falling in love with a traditional comic storyteller's rendition of the story called "Shinigami," he is determined to become his apprentice. The performer, Yakumo, has never taken an apprentice before, but to everyone's surprise, he accepts the eager ex-prisoner, nicknaming him "Yotaro."

As Yotaro happily begins his new life, he meets others in Yakumo's life, including Yakumo's ward Konatsu. Konatsu was the daughter of a famous storyteller, and Yakumo took her in after her father's tragic death. Konatsu loved her father's storytelling, and would love to become a performer in her own right—but that path is not available for women.

For anyone coming to watch this, having seen the 2016 TV series Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu.

This ova is just the first 2 [and a bit] episodes. And can happily be skipped, If you're seen the show. As it's just an [extended] pilot episode.

There is one difference between the two though, the [hard to find] released DVD version [or, rips of] is only 576p. Compared to the 2016 series which is readily available in 1080p. So this is a worse version of those starting episodes of the series.

And, imo, this first starting arc is the weakest part of the entire 2016 series. And misrepresentation of the ...
