The beginning of the Meiji era spelled the end of the tanuki's tricks. These raccoon dogs, who are able to transform into human beings, used to love fooling humans until advanced technology rendered their endeavors futile. However, Mameda, a young tanuki girl, has not given up on this tradition, and—resolved to follow in her father's footsteps—travels to Osaka in hopes of duping people.

As others in her village predicted, Mameda fails to deceive a single person, and she is even hunted down by an angry crowd. After finding refuge in a theater, she stumbles upon a rakugo performance given by a master of the art, Bunko Daikokutei. Fascinated by the vivid images created by the rakugoka's acting, Mameda becomes enamored with this style of storytelling and decides to become Bunko's apprentice!

Despite her initial reluctance to take a disciple, Bunko begins to teach Mameda rakugo after witnessing the young tanuki's perseverance. Between undertaking a taiko apprenticeship, handling her work at the theater, and memorizing plays, Mameda needs to give her all if she ever plans to master the only art that still has a chance to fool people.

I do not know enough about Rakugo to know if the portrayal in this anime is good or bad; but I know enough after watching this that Bunko is a boring Rakugoka who inexplicably looks like a middle school boy while also managing to have an annoying condescending personality. A quick read about Tanuki teaches that they were rumored to have magical powers, they are tricksters who shapeshift and steal. Mischievous creatures sort of like raccoons are known to be on this side of the world.
Mameda is the Tanuki in question, being sent to the big city in Taisho Era (early 20th century) Japan. ...

Honestly, there is a lot of charm and good feelings when it comes to this show, and how it conducts itself. From entertaining and fun characters that are certainly memorable. To the whole feel of the show itself. Making it one of the shows you'll enjoy watching this season. While it won't amaze in action, but it more than makes that up with it's charm and character. To the point it even brought out a few laughs from me. If an anime can promote a reaction like that, then it's certainly worth watching.

i really wanted to enjoy this anime, as mythical creatures and obscure Japanese culture are things i find interesting, but I cant stay awake through an episode, I have to watch one at least 3 times to remember what happened. the character back story is better than the main story, and it feels like an experiment on how far into nothing happening zone a slice of life can be pushed. I only made it half way so maybe it gets better in the second half, but I wont be here for it. everyone is different and I always say try before you say you dont ...
