Synopsis

Ex-convict turned Rakugo apprentice Yotarou has finally taken the name of Yurakutei Sukeroku III, and with his master Yakumo's permission has attained the lofty rank of shin'uchi. He assumes the name at a critical time for Rakugo, with audiences fewer than ever. At the same time he has started acting as a husband to Konatsu, who is now a single mother. Yotarou thus begins the struggle to fill the role of Sukeroku, both as the future of Rakugo and as a part of Yakumo's and Konatsu's lives.

The first season of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu was the absolute best anime of Winter, 2016, and very possibly the best anime of that entire year. It was certainly the most moving, truly adult, drama I've seen in a long time. Appropriately enough, since rakugo is the art of storytelling, the first season took the form of a story within a story, telling an incredibly moving tale of a complicated friendship, tragic choices, and the repercussions of those actions for people living in the present day.

This is the second season of Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, a show about "rakugo", a form of comic japanese theater, where a person stands alone at the stage only with a fan and acts like several characters, telling stories that can have many different styles, scary stories to children tales, from daily life scenes to magic tales.
But actually this anime is not about rakugo. It's about the life of two friends that get to know each other and care about each through rakugo, and rakugo allow us the viewers to understand the personalities and inner feelings, life story and future of these characters. In the read more
