Things had been looking up for our rakugo family as of late, but that may have just been the long slope to the top of a very steep drop. The final performance this week was so magnificently staged and such a major turn in the narrative that it’s tempting to ignore everything else and just focus on that, but there are a lot of tiny (and more optimistic) milestones that happen prior to it, and I’d be doing Rakugo Shinju a major disservice if I didn’t touch on them. Yakumo may be in a desolate place right now, but that doesn’t mean everything is.

One thought on “Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju Season 2 – Episode 5

  1. That last scene was so painful to watch, my finger was literally hovering over the pause button the entire time. I mean it was a fantastic scene – probably one of the best of this whole season so far – but I saw it coming a mile off and yet still wasn’t emotionally ready for it.
