It was revealed that josei manga Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu will end after its tenth volume, to be released in the summer. The announcement was made in its ninth volume, which was released on February 5.

Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu is drawn by Haruko Kumota and began serialization in Itan. In 2013, the manga won the excellence category for Japan's 17th Media Arts Festival Awards, and it also won the general award category at the 38th Kodansha Manga Awards in 2014.

The manga received two OVAs in March and August 2015, which were bundled with volume seven and eight, respectively. In Winter 2016, the series received a TV anime adaptation by Studio Deen, which is currently on-going. The anime is being simulcast by Crunchyroll.

I'm glad I was late to the spoiler party. I guess I can thank work for something haha.

I'm so glad. I hope there will be 2nd season and the story will be finished in the anime version.

I came across of a few images from vols 6-9 on the Kodansha website, so going by those I think anime will probably end right after the flashback arc and leave it open for a possible second season focusing on Yatorou's journey/rise in Rakugo.

I do hope there's a second season that follows the later volumes because my interest has been seriously piqued by this show and I doubt the manga will get an official or even unofficial english version, so all I have left is the anime, lol.


Yes, I think anime will end at the end of volume 5 or start of 6. I hope we get a S2 because a lot of 'interesting' things are happening there and of course Yotaru with Konatsu appear again.

That's sad. I wish it could get a translation somehow. (I can only pray)

LOL the first comments about the spoiler volume cover. I know which pic it is but it's better they changed it even though it's not the spoiler people think it is but I won't say more...

With this and how the anime is doing so far, we will either have a S2 because flashback will take 3-4 more episodes or anime original ending. There is no way to fit 8 volumes of content in 7 episodes and we are still in the middle of the flashback.

I hope this would mean a group will pick the translation but I doubt it. It's not popular enough even though the reviews for the anime are great.

Do you mind PM'ing me/posting the link of the cover they used on my profile please? I like spoilers.

Hmmm I wonder if they are going to cover the whole manga in the current adaptation of if there will be a second cour later this year. That would be great :)

Hopefully I wasn't spoiled, since I didn't want to look at the cover at first.

Feb 6, 2016 9:55 AM by Xenocrisi

since its ending on 10 volumes, im wondering if the anime is going to adapt the whole of the manga

Feb 6, 2016 6:58 AM by DanTheAnimeFan

Lol I guess the pic was changed? Everyone was saying it's a spoiler even though I couldn't see anything of the sort. Lucky I didn't check the news straight away :P

Best anime this season, hope it gets another adaptation to cover the whole manga.

The two greatest series of the season are ending. :(

Even with a small version of the picture it sure was a big spoiler!

Feb 6, 2016 4:53 AM by bittersweetlove

Wohooo so we get another complete adaptation. Much appreciated!

That photo is such a huge spoiler. But oh well, it's not like the manga has an english version or the anime is going to show all 8 volumes.


What? Are they gay for each other?

Update: The image in the post has been changed to prevent from "spoiler", though I didn't even think it was a spoiler when I first saw it (the preview image is small, but does it matter if I don't change it? It's still the latest volume that news has announced, so I personally think it's still important).
The change is really appreciated (even though we can't unsee)! I totally understand what you mean, and honestly if we didn't want to get spoiled, we probably should have been more careful of where we clicked. I did get to this thread in a way that didn't show the entire title and didn't show a preview picture at all though (forum index).;; I didn't really know what to expect.

The change is appreciated anyway! I'll just be more careful checking the news.

Thanks for changing it. At least those who haven't checked the news yet won't be spoiled. :)

I was very disappointed when I got majorly spoiled with another manga (and my favourite one at it) due to the final volume cover posted a few months back in another news thread. I hope MAL News team members discuss within the team to set a rule within the team so that they avoid posting such covers, particularly the spoilerish ones like the previous one in this thread.

Well glad I only glanced at that picture with everyone saying it's a spoiler.


if it hadn't been for everyone saying it was a spoiler, I wouldn't have payed any attention to the picture. But it was a good spoiler so I'm not too upset.
