Introduction

The first season of Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju became a popular topic with the charming original story and serious acting by the fantastic voice cast. It was acknowledged not only by anime fans but also by the rakugo and music industries. The continuation of the story begins this winter.

Not being able to forget the performance of “Shinigami” by the expert Yakumo at the prison consolation event, Yotaro directly goes to the storyteller’s theater after being released from prison.
He pleads to Yakumo and becomes his disciple. Yotaro, after polishing up his skill, is finally promoted to shinuchi.
The professional name he inherits is Sukeroku III.
For master Yakumo, for Konatsu and to change their impression they have on Sukeroku, How will Yotaro express his own rakugo style…?

Using the work of Haruko Kumota who is well-known for her delicate human description, this highly anticipated anime features rakugo industry in Showa era with true face and skills of the story tellers.
