Akane takes on the world of rakugo to avenge her father!
Shinta Arakawa wants nothing more than to pass his shin’uchi exam - the test that would make him a top-rank headliner and master storyteller in the traditional Japanese art of rakugo. His daughter Akane Osaki is his biggest fan, and even practices the same performances while watching him behind the closed door to his study. When rakugo master Issho Arakawa expels everyone after the exam with no explanation, a fire is lit inside Akane. From that day forth, she has had one goal - to avenge her father and prove his art was worthy of the title of shin’uchi. Akane unintentionally stirs up the specter of scandal when she’s discovered taking informal lessons from her father’s former teacher, Shiguma Arakawa. But she’s about to make even bigger waves, because her first step in climbing the ranks of rakugo performer from zenza opening act to shin’uchi headliner is exchanging her secret lessons for formal training.
And she’ll still have to finish high school and navigate her relationship with Shiguma’s existing apprentices, all while learning that becoming a stellar rakugo performer takes much more than just being good at performing!
