Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju: Sukeroku Futatabi-Hen Episode 6
After collapsing right as he finished performing the rakugo piece ‘Hanganko’, Yakumo sees a vision of himself being choked by Sukeroku II while surrounded by rows of candles. Although Yotaro’s voice brings him back to reality, he is unable to return to the stage. Yotaro intends to accompany Yakumo to the hospital, but he hears the voices of the audience and remembers that they are here to enjoy rakugo. ‘I gotta perform rakugo.’ Yotaro makes up his mind and takes to the stage. His piece: ‘Inokori’.
