It’s two steps forward, one step back.
If Season 2’s premiere felt like a rebirth, this episode reminds us that karma still carries from one reincarnation to the next. The weight of the past clings like a–well, like a tattoo to the backs of all of our characters, reappearing through old faces, names, memories, and tales. And our new writer friend Higuchi is bound and determined to document all of it, even if he has to withstand the full-force of a Yakumo stink-eye to do it.
One thought on “Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju Season 2 – Episode 2”
Which alone speaks pretty well of Higuchi’s character. No matter how noble the cause, I don’t know that I’d be able to withstand the full-force of a Yakumo stink-eye…
