    I truly love this show, but even by its standards episode 4 was just extraordinary. The entire scene at the kindergarten was emotionally overwhelming. I was definitely laughing and tearing up at the same time. I was genuinely moved by Yotaro’s love for Konatsu; he pushed her to do a thing she cares most for in the world. And watching Konatsu just absolutely shine was fantastic. They make a good pair.

    I also cracked up at Konatsu’s line while they’re on the bus: “It may be work gained through family connections, but an invitation like this is a dream come true.” I wonder if that’s a quote from something…

      Oh hurray another fan. Finding other fans of this series makes me so so happy. :D

      But yes this episode was amazing. Konatsu is usually scowling and serious, so it was a nice change to see her a lot more loose. You could tell that she was having so much fun, and even if just for a little bit, she was living her dream. Maybe the kindergarten will call her again so she can do more performances for the kids. And if not, a couple more pushes from Yotaro can maybe move things ahead in the future. She could become the first woman to professionally perform rakugo!
