Synopsis

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.

My knowledge on rakugo is pretty limited, so I can't say how good of a job this anime dose at it, but what I can say is that I really enjoyed watching it.

The plot is simple. It mostly revolves around a tanuki who wants to master rakugo in order to trick humans. We follow her (mis)adventures as she aims to fulfill her goal of becoming a Rakugoka. On the way she meets a lot of interesting people and dwells more into the world of rakugo.

The rakugo itself is really interesting to listen to, altough I don't find it particularly funny, but honestly I don't ...

(Texto em PT/BR no final)

Uchi no Shishou wa Shippo ga Nai was a work that in the first instance did not prove to be a big deal, creating any kind of expectation for the work seemed crazy, but the first episode managed to change that view a little, presenting an immersive or illustrative rakugo depending on the moment, thus creating a strong connection with the stories told by both the characters and the spectator. Rakugo has a very functional comedy and a highlight that makes it the great icing on the cake of the work, but this also puts Uchi no Shishou wa Shippo ga ...

Mixed Feelings
Another Rakugo show? I know that that's a bit of a fair niche just like manzai a.k.a Japanese stand-up comedy, but while the understanding to appeal to Japan is there to be the difference, over in the West, there's just a miniscule size of anime otakus being history buffs. And having said that, this show gets lost in translation, but how so does it fare against the come-and-gone contemporaries?

It's been said in Japanese folklore that the raccoon a.k.a tanuki does have a rather malevolent past. The oldest and earliest tales and legends speak not only of the possession of humans but also of shapeshifting. One ...
