A lot of things happened to this episode. This is my favorite tho. It's really cute for Kiku to cut Kona-chan's hair lol. And I also love the performance of the two. And yeap, bromance overload.

Episode enjoyable, a little pause before it begins again to march the real story, are fun Kiku-san, Konatsu-chan and Sukeroku with their bickering; who knows what will happen in the next episode. Miyokichi if reduced to doing what we already expected, his was an error, poor Konatsu. Screenplay quite good, OK also directed.

The reunion was pleasant to see, this show is not the same without Kiku and Shin together.
I'm scared to watch the next episode, the end of the preview was scary. I hope Miyokichi will leave Shin alone

The best episode so far for me
Those three are so adorable.. xD
I wish they're happy like that forever

The evolution of rakugo eh? Duo rakugo.. that might be interesting
Also, Kiku is there for Sukeroku/Shin not for Geisha :0
Looks like she's going to get her revenge in the next episode

No surprise that both Sukeroku and Miyokichi are a mess without the grounding force of Kiku.
There were some absolutely adorable bits with Kiku, Konatsu and Sukeroku living as a little family for a while and that performance really highlighted (yet again) how well the two work with not only their contrasting Rakugo, but their conflicting personalities as well. Ah, I love a good bromance ;-;

Miyokichi has still got the love bug, even after marrying and having a kid to makes me sad to see her so bitter.

Dat end though...oh honey he didn't come back for you, he came back for Sukeroku really.

Excellent episode. Relly like the brother-bond between MC's.

The bromance was real this episode. Bon and Shin's Nozorashi performance was nothing short of excellent: I almost wish I was sitting beside Konatsu to be able to witness it live.

Miyo's situation on the other hand just gets more and more pathetic the more I think about it. She obviously suffers from severe co-dependency issues that she's perfectly aware of but thought she could keep at bay as long as she managed to get with the man she loved, and as a result kept desperately pushing herself onto him only to realize that the object of her affections doesn't return her feelings. She then proceeded to latch onto the man's best friend and trapped him in a relationship that pretty much condemned him to give up on the one thing he loved the most: doing rakugo. And since Miyo and Shin's relationship only started as a means to lick each other's wounds as opposed to a romance that would originate from genuine and mutual feeling of love, it was only a matter of time before Miyo inevitably ran off and went back to the place where she feels the safest (i.e. returning to the world of prostitution). In a sense, it's not too different from all these homeless people helped by social services, who will be given the opportunity to start anew and reintegrate into society but will eventually go back to the streets because that's all they've known for so long they subconsciously believe there's no other place for them.
The worst thing about all this is that it seems Miyo honestly expected or at least hoped for Bon to come back for her when the one he was truly concerned about was always Shin. She neglected her life, her family and herself, all out of unrequited love. Sad.

Konatsu is adorable. And Kiku's haircut really cleaned her up :)

That performance together was great. You can tell instantly how the mood changed when Sukeroku entered the story. They fit together so well!

Shin's daughter is certainly cute and really loves her father.

Kikuhiko scolding her for talking bad about her mother...does he not realize what a bitch that geisha is? She stole Shin from what he loved most in life.

I'm very happy that Kikuhiko and Shin will be doing a show together. Shin seems to have found his love for rakugo again! That scene with them doing the show and his daughter watching with awe was great.

I'm not happy that geisha whore is interested in Kikuhiko again.

Shin and Kiku doing rakugo together was so entertaining and enjoyable! It was pretty moving to see how Kikuhiko helped him get back on his feet. Seems like with his arrival both Shin and Konatsu are happier. And they were holding Konatsu's hands together they were basically raising a child together, that was sweet :')

As for Miyokichi, I honestly cannot believe how she abandoned her own child without caring about what happens to it. I mean it was obvious she was hurt and wanted revenge and that's why she got together with Shin but still man, that was very heartless of her. I understand that she didn't want Shin to do rakugo because it reminded her of Kikuhiko but still that made both him and Konatsu unhappy.

I was actually waiting for them to do rakugo together and it really happened :D I'm still wondering why they never do it on stage tho. Maybe because it wouldn't be rakugo anymore?

I actually hate Miyokichi from the first time she appeared. I watch this series on kissanime, and I'm really surprised that some of the people there think that Kiku is the one at fault and that he shouldn't act cold toward Miyokichi. I know Miyokichi has problems as well, but she shouldn't act that way. I mean like abandoning her husband and kid and still chasing over Kiku. She should give up on Kiku and just go with Shin and raise her child. Shin isn't a good husband, but I feel bad for Konatsu for having a mother like that :(

Omfg. I cried when Bon and Shin finally met again for so many years. Huhuhu. What a happy reunion! :3

Jesus. Alright, I should've believed the people who are hating on Miyokochi. Damn, she left her daughter and Shin just like that? What a fucking bitch.

Little Konatsu and Bon, though. So fucking cute. :3 Just like an uncle and his niece. Hihi. But when the three of them were walking together while those sakura petals were falling, they look like a perfect family. Can Shin and Bon be like officially couple? Hehehehe. Alright, I'll calm my fujoshi heart down now. Pfffft.

So fucking happy when Shin performed rakugo again with Bon just for little Konatsu. My fucking heart. MY FUCKING HEART! I s2g this show keeps getting better and better. Gaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah! I was crying out of happiness while watching them two performing together. ;-;

After all these years, Miyokochi is still in love with Bon. Jeez. I'm terrified with her. Someone take her away from them three. Jesus fucking Christ.

Sukeroku and Yakumo performing together was great, they complement each other so well, glad to see that the first will be going back for more Rakugo.

Smol Konatsu is so precious and hard worker,, she seems to despise Miyokichi for not accepting Sukeroku performing Rakugo since she loves it, talking about her, oh boy her reaction when she read the paper, this is gonna get interesting.

I'm surprised no one talked about what a bitch Bon was to Konatsu about her future in rakugou. Usually I'm sympathetic to him, but man what a dick thing to say.

Why is she using her husband in revenge ??

He loves her faithfully but she is dumb 😒 i don't like her 😝

This episode was so wholesome, I loved it. I had a stupid grin on my face the entire time. There was no sadness in their reunion. Just two bros reuniting after what likely seemed like a lifetime. The two of them doing double rakugo was great to watch. They played off of one another so well. All of this time, Miyokichi was just waiting for Yakumo? I mean, I guess that isn't too surprising but she better not do anything to fuck up my boys' flow.

Damn miyokichi turned out to be a real dead beat. What a piece of shit.

Ugh, the framing device makes this show so sad. I cant even handle what I know is coming.
