I felt that the heavy amounts of dialogue delivery this episode really added depth to the story - felt so much happened in a mere space of 20 mins. It even concluded in a spoken story manner hah!

Digging the shamisen the more it gets played, and for a moment, I thought Kiku would go the musical route.

Looks like a potentially troublesome lady comes next, which leaves me wondering when the accident will show and the lead in back to Yotaro & Konatsu's return to the stage.

Another fantastic episode. I sometimes dislike very heavy dialogue anime due to either the content of the anime or the VAs. However, this show has great story telling and has very good VAs.

I really like that we're getting some narration since the VA for Yakumo is really good. So it really does make it feel like a story within a story. It seems like other than being unable to do Rakugo, Kikuhiko was pretty much sheltered from the war while Hatsutaro was in the midst of it entertaining the troops. I'm sure we'll see the effects of that later on. I do like the back story but I also kind of want to get back to Yotaro. It seems like it will be at least one more episode but probably more before that happens though.

Another wonderful episode. I really liked how they show citizens living during that time (especially with onset of World War II). A lot of people probably experienced what Yakumo and the mistress underwent; waiting for loved ones and friends to come home from war. That must be nerve-wracking. Keeping hope alive, but then feeling it diminish with the unceasing passing of time. It was really great to see their reaction during the reunion.

Looks like the woman at the end will bring some turmoil.

Episode 4

Kikuhiko works as a waiter and is such a tightwad, though that's out of necessity as Sukeroku (now with his current name) fails to understand. But that leads him to his next rakugo performance, and it's great. And then Kikuhiko and Miyokishi meet with the two of them getting all love-dovey with each other. That's another great episode there, and certainly while Kikuhiko is all about perfection, flaws have their beauty as well as is the case with Sukeroku's rakugo. Let's see where thing go from here seeing that Kikuhiko isn't flexible at all.

Episode 4


That was awesome. another splendid performance of Rakugo. The boat and murder parts were the funniest imo as he is able to portray two characters with perfection.

Looks like they really want to develop a relationship between Kiku and Miyokichi. Not sure how I feel about that to be honest but I think he's getting the hang of it. Plus, Miyokichi has talent herself so it's not a bad pair. Looking forward to more!

Sacks

I'd love to hear more of that shamisen+singing combo - way better sounding than chinese opera.

Miyoki is an interesting bundle of disruption - I reckon she is Konatsu's mother, and thus got with Sukeroku in the end.

Episode 4

I like how we get at least one Rakugo each episode. Sukeroku's rakugo is always a pleasure to watch and hear. He just has a great voice for this type of thing. Plus the story was hilarious.

Echoing what jellyblob said I think that Miyoki is Konatsu's mother as well. And that might be the reason why Kiku doesn't want to teach her because he probably despised him after that.

I'm excited to see how this development proceeds. And how they end up at that point. Sometimes I forget that this is taking place in the past since we haven't visited the future in a while.

You're right about this. I'm so engrossed in the history that I've kind of forgotten about the story taking place in the present.

Still definitely one of the top shows in a fairly strong season overall. With every episode I have to applaud Crunchy for taking a risk on this show. I hope it's paying off for them as much as it is for those of us who are watching it.

From episode one I said this was going to be my show of the season and it hasn't failed me yet. I was afraid they wouldn't do too many actually Rakugo parts but there's one every episode and they are all great and while the jokes aren't always on point there are many times where I'm laughing right along with the audience.
