Descending Stories : Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju 6
by Haruko Kumota




Overview -
A multi-generational human drama set in the world of rakugo, a traditional form of Japanese comedic storytelling, Descending Stories follows an ex-convict whose life is changed by his apprenticeship to a famed storyteller, and Konatsu, who yearns to perform rakugo but cannot because women are not permitted in the craft.

THE NEXT CHAPTER

After apprenticing for ten years under the great Yakumo Yurakutei VIII, Yotaro has finally become a shin'uchi and taken the name Sukeroku, a lineage with its own fraught history. But the newly-minted Sukeroku III cannot rest on his laurels for long, as ghosts from his own past come to haunt him in the wake of his achievement. With his family and his art on the line, can he find his way forward? Or will he be doomed to mediocrity as the rakugo tradition languishes?

The story of the next generation begins here.
