    Please anime writers, don’t take grandpa Yakumo away from us…I’ve waited the whole series just to see him be happy. Now that he’s finally got a nice smile on his face, he’s gone!? No! I can’t take this! This can’t be what I come home to watch on Friday nights anymore TT^TT

    But gawd damn it, despite my constant frustration and anxiety – or maybe because of it – this series really is fantastic. There’s little more to be said. I do wonder if it’ll ever get a dub? That would be a challenge for sure. The distributor would need to shell out the big bucks, better get some movie-level VA talent on the job, because this series deserves no less.

      I know! Don’t take him from us! D:

      Hmm, I think a dub would pose a big challenge because of the rakugo. There might be some cultural differences that won’t work with a Western audience, but really the biggest challenge would be the VAs. They have to really capture the rakugo performances well or it’ll make the series fall a little flat. If this show had nothing to do with rakugo I think a dub would be easier to do.

    Konatsu asking to be Yakumo’s apprentice, and his unqualified yes, was possibly my favorite moment in a series that’s almost entirely made of favorite moments. That was emotionally overwhelming…just the culmination of almost two full cours’ worth of Konatsu’s dreams and internal conflicts, concluded with just a beautifully simple instant. I love this show more than I could ever have imagined.

      Exactly. That’s why if Yakumo really is dead, without ever having officially teaching Konatsu rakugo, I will be devastated. :(
