The supernatural rakugo series starts September 30
The daily My Master Has No Tail TV anime character trailers continue today with another rakugo master Utaroku Ebisuya, who is more gloom and smoke when off the stage but is known for his rich emotional expressions when he performs. Ebisuya is voiced by Akira Ishida (Gaara in Naruto).
My Master Has No Tail is being directed by Hideyo Yamamoto (Cells at Work! CODE BLACK) at studio LIDEN FILMS, with series composition by Touko Machida (Life Lessons with Uramichi Oniisan) and character designs by Ryo Yamauchi (Vivy -Fluorite Eye’s Song- key animator). Kodansha, who releases the manga in English, describes the series as such:
Mameda is a tanuki who was born in the wrong era - all she wants is to trick humans, but that age of tanuki shenanigans is over. But one woman, a rakugo master named Bunko, shows Mameda it's still possible to cast magic on humans...only with words, not illusions. Mameda is determined to become Bunko's apprentice, but can she convince the stoic master to take her on...?
My Master Has No Tail premieres in Japan on September 30 on TOKYO MX, MBS, BS Asahi and more stations across the country.
