Synopsis

When a certain man is released from prison, he knows exactly where he's heading first. After falling in love with a traditional comic storyteller's rendition of the story called "Shinigami," he is determined to become his apprentice. The performer, Yakumo, has never taken an apprentice before, but to everyone's surprise, he accepts the eager ex-prisoner, nicknaming him "Yotaro."

As Yotaro happily begins his new life, he meets others in Yakumo's life, including Yakumo's ward Konatsu. Konatsu was the daughter of a famous storyteller, and Yakumo took her in after her father's tragic death. Konatsu loved her father's storytelling, and would love to become a performer in her own right--but that path is not available for women.

I am very much looking forward to this anime for the winter season. That second PV peaks my interest so much. And the music! <3 Plus it sounds like it's an interesting manga. I hope the show is a delight (◠‿◠)

I believe the series is being done by Studio Deen, so if you want to add that to producers, then go for it!
