rakugo in less than an hour
show me your rakugo face
I don't know how to feel. On one hand, I'll get my weekly dose of Rakugo. On the other hand, I still haven't recovered from Yota's latest disastrous performance and I'm afraid that things will only be worse for him in this episode.
oh come on Anon, have faith
only faith can heal best boy
So we will finally find out if the Yakuza boss is the father. Judging from the manga raws, this episode is going to be an eventful one concerning Yotaro and Konatsu's relationship.
Don't really care about Konatsu, but I hope the best for Yotaro.
I usually hate that word since it's thrown around so much, but in this case it fits.
Yotaro should have just left Konatsu and her mistake alone. He had no obligation to marry her and take care of her son. If he wanted to help the kid grow he could have done it without getting into a loveless marriage. Konatsu is a usless whore just like her mother and doesn't deserve Yotaro's kindness.
I hate myself for not learning Moonrunes. Reading Rakugo manga is a pain in the ass if your Moon level is weak and I've been living away from the truth for months because I can't read the manga.
there have been rakugo animu before this
>doesn't deserve Yotaro's kindness
to be fair, who really does?
I've been listening to it non stop since hours.
A little question to Frenchfags: Is it just me, or the French title at the beginning is kind of wrong? I also wonder why they chose to include a French title.
It was his decision, whether you like it or not. Konatsu from her side is not taking advantage of his kindness as we see she is responsible for taking care of the baby most of the time while Yotaro works as a rakugoga. She will start falling for him later on but it needs time. Also, fuck it, it's Japan in the 80s and she is a single mother, it's a social stigma. Yes, she might not deserve Yotaro's kindness from your point of view but that's up to him to decide who he wants to give love and care.
Thank you, anon.
He deserves happiness.
Thirty-something men shouldn't be this cute.
And old men shouldn't be this sexy.
Every man in this show is wrong.
>introduce my husband to a prostitute
That's one of my favourite things about the series. Their nonsensical acceptable of their place in the food chain gives the world such a bizarro feel and makes for unique character dynamics. I'm sure there's some deeper meaning to it (and maybe it's a warning against accepting things like that) but on a superficial level it's genuinely just amusing and interesting.
I love it when Yota imitates Kiku.
The kid is too cute.
>girls can't love girls!
Is this like ntr fags wet dream?
>his wife just tried to get him to fuck a prostitute
>he tells the real father this is my wife now and this is my son now
what the fuck. i don't know what was worse s1 or this so far in terms of ntr. Also was that the son grown up in preview? They going to do a timeskip?
I hate him.
Yota is scary
I want to abduct this cutie
I wasn't really sold on Yota until this episode. He might actually be a decent protagonist now.
Also the mouths look really good in this show. I didn't notice it in the first season, but this season it really stands out. Not quite bake tier though.
the reason why bake has unreasonably good facial animation is that SHAFT is a bunch of greedy jews who don't spent a single shekel on anything else than facial animation
Well regardless of the whole "my wife's son" business, she finally seems to have fallen for him now.
Still it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I'm not a purityfag by any means, but still.
>Still it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth
Because she was literally fucked and impregnated by another man and the MC is raising that child. You don't have to be a purityfag to find that a little off putting.
Though I think the father was the aniki and not the old boss.
And cute doggo
Don't bully the Yota.
Now I finally recognize everyone in the OP
Remember when nobody gave a fuck about health risks?
Fuck this man, he acts like a creepy stalker.
>otaro should have just left Konatsu and her mistake alone.
What's his endgame?
He is a creepy stalker. He was listening in on everything.
I want to see what kind of face Konatsu was making while she was being impregnated. Still, what a fucking slut.
>making Matsuda cry
Okay, Yotaro needs to redeem himself now. I'm mad.
I hope they are giving Ishida all the seiyuu awards in existence for his Yakumo.
She's probably lax about sex, what do you expect, her parents were massive sluts.
That Inokori was fantastic. This is why this show is AOTS. The rakugo is handled so brilliantly with the facial expressions, the cuts between them to differentiate the characters, the framing and of course the acting. The rakugo in this show is just brilliant.
Help me /a/.
I want to commit a sin.
Konatsu is human trash. She doesn't deserve Yotaro.
The only good thing to come out of it for Yotaru is that his wife's son is a 10/10 qt boy.
Why do you find it offputting? Because she had sex with another man? Or because she had unprotected sex? You guys are are fucked up in the head. As expected of purityfag bullshit..
That's the funny thing about single mothers. They think its their kids that the guys are worried about, not the living testament to Stockholm syndrome and parental resentment that is the single mother's mind.
>Kiku will never tell you stories to put you to sleep
>Why do you find it offputting? Because she had sex with another man? Or because she had unprotected sex?
Did you read my post you stupid fuck? It's not because she fucked another man, it's because she had a child by a gangster and now Yotaro is raising it.
She's also been his "wife" for a while now and never told him.
>it's because she had a child by a gangster and now Yotaro is raising it.
And what's so wrong about it? Yotaro wants to and she agreed. She never asked Yotaro about raising her child together anyways.
>She's also been his "wife" for a while now and never told him.
I will give you that only in the context Yotaro knew the guy. I don't get why so many here are getting triggered over a guy raising a child. Yotaro is the kid's father because he is the one to take care of him, be there for him from now on. I don't see what's so difficult to get.
Kiku doing that one performance entirely in Sukeroku's style at the end was a nice touch. Also no OP or ED, but I guess that's just more Rakugo.
The fact that you were born is clearly a proof that something went wrong in your parents' lives.
I like how he's exhausted after doing Sukeroku-styke rakugo. It shows how much energy he put into his performances. I already enjoyed that tiny bit of Sukeroku-styke rakugo in the director's cut ep 1, so this week's episode has been a treat for me.
where to watch ep1 dc anon mine
tell me tell me
People in general get triggered by single mothers, especially if they have multiple children.
If the artist didn't intend this topic to be discussed, he wouldn't have included it in his work. She's a good woman, but she's exactly the kind of woman who'd do something stupid like that, and any relationship with her is going to be carried by Yotaru being an indefatigable soul.
What do you mean "wat"? They don't walk up to them in the street and start lecturing them, but they do get some of the nastiest looks when I'm from.
Unless they're dressed like a career woman of some sort, people tend to assume they're welfare leeches.
>people tend to assume they're welfare leeches
Because most of the time they are. Excluding widows, single moms get to their position by making bad choice after bad choice. At that point they either need a new significant other to support them, or they need government assistance.
In Konatsu's case she is very lucky to have Yotaro. If he wasn't the good man that he is, Konatsu and her son were just going to repeat the cycle of tragedy. She would have ended up just like her mother. I don't hate her, but she isn't a sympathetic character to me either. She put herself in that position and was lucky Yotaro was there to save her.
I don't live on the moon, believe it or not. No one likes welfare queens in America, and that's a stigma that's almost always tacked onto a single mother with multiple kids.
Where the fuck are you from where single motherhood is considered to be something other than a fucking problem?
So did the Mob Boss bang Yota's wife or did he just have feelings?
It's hard to read the situation sometimes in this show.
>So did the Mob Boss bang Yota's wife or did he just have feelings
It's implied that it was Yota's boss, not the older big boss that knocked up Konatsu. And at the time she wasn't his wife. It wasn't until after she got pregnant that he agreed to marry her for the sake of the child.
He had a feeling it might have been the Boss but with Konatsu still keeping quiet on who the daddy it, he wanted to make sure that even if there was a chance the Boss was the daddy he would keep away from the kid...i think.
First, it's 10 times worse in Japan, which is the country the show's set in anyway.
Second, I'm really interested in what kind of hellhole you have to be from, if it's considered normal for a woman to get knocked up out of wedlock by a faceless stranger.
And where do you live that single mothers are apparently such a great thing?
Single moms are a stigma in more countries than the United States. Stop living in a bubble you fucking retard.
>it's 10 times worse in Japan
>normal for a woman to get knocked up out of wedlock by a faceless stranger
>a stigma in most countries
>of which I know jackshit
>accuses others of living in a bubble
American education system, everyone.
I bet you've never been outside of Anglosphere either.
Because Asia is all uniform and there isn't much cultural difference between, say, Iran, Russia and Vietnam, amirite.
Single mothers and their children have some terrible statistics attached to them, anon.
They are not something a healthy society should have a big amount of, no matter how good you feel about being progressive.
>everything I don't like is America
Catholic Europe here. You're a fucking faggot. Sex out of marriage is bad enough, but not marrying the father? That's a grave sin. And divorce isn't legit in the eyes of God.
>people arguing about single mothers
Single mothers are a burden on any society they are part of.
With that out the way, Konatsu is a dumb whore who is lucky that Yota bailed her out of a shitty life. Thankfully this baby daddy drama is over with and we can move on.
Guten Tag mein hochintellektueller Kammerad. Could you perhaps share some of your education and tell me how single mothers are just like normal families, just without all that toxic masculinity messing everything up?
Do you even know how much more likely kids of single parents are to end up being homeless/violent criminals/drug abusers/long term unemployed when compared to children out of two-parent families?
Or do those things simply not exist because your superior teachers that have been folded over 100 million times didn't mention them?
It makes a lot of sense for society to look down upon them, because a society without them does a lot better than one that has many of them and no amount of education is going to change that.
>because a society without them does a lot better than one that has many of them
>Of the 14 developed countries surveyed, the highest unwed birth rates were among the Scandinavian nations (66 percent in Iceland, 55 percent in Sweden, 54 percent in Norway and 46 percent in Denmark)

Two people make a kid. If one doesn't want it and the other does, they talk and try to find a solution. In case it happens in one night stand or rape and the woman doesn't want to see the guy anymore or the other way around, but she wants to keep the kid what's the problem?
Elaborate. Society changes with times and people adapt.
Not really. I say that they're not viewed favorably, which is true, but I don't think even the majority of them are selfish people. Just broken.
The statistics are mostly skewed against the boys, which makes sense. Like or not, there are things about being a man that a woman can't understand, and it's very rare that a single mother is able to prepare a male child for adulthood.
>holy marriage can be discussed without the concept of holyness or marriage
Why are you trying to abolish the holy institution? Or are you just that dumb?
>le what if its a rape
An exception to the rule, retard.
> Why are you trying to abolish the holy institution? Or are you just that dumb?
Hello time traveller from the Middle Ages. How's that witch hunting going?
>An exception to the rule, retard.
An exception that still can give a kid with a mother wanting to keep it. Rape can still exist inside your holy marriage, idiot.
>Elaborate. Society changes with times and people adapt.
Well you see, look at some pictures of a Brazilian ghetto, and then go outside your house and look around. Society changes, but you'd ideally want to keep it looking like what's outside of your house.
Man, I really like the turnaround on Yota. I remember a lot of anons saying that Yota isn't really that interesting or would be able to fill the space Sukeroku left pre airing. But this is some solid writing right here. This show continues to surpass expectations.
I just want some decency in world and someone to stop the sundering of nuclear family. It's neither your choice nor your marriage. Stop being an egoistical fuck and think of your other half and posterity.
As others said Konatsu is rotten. Yakumo is a terrible father and just as much to blame as her genetics. The only reason this won't end in a tragedy is Yota. Dog bless this man and his selfless nature.
You would ideally want to change it to something better than what you have but most people get used to what they grow up with and rarely want a change. The change still comes though because the normal standards change, technology progress, transportation is faster, the language barriers are not that strong etc. Also, 'healthy' doesn't really exist in society. Normal standards that change with time do but it depends from where you come from.
I do agree that through your eyes if what you have is pretty good by your standards, you would want to keep a stability of it for as long as you can.
How is it bait? If you are referring to the whole single mother argument that's going on, it's part of the plot whether you like it or not.
Konatsu got fucked and impregnated by some yakuza and would have been shit out of luck if Yotaro hadn't stepped in. Even if she raised the child under a stable roof, the child still needs a good father figure. And those yakuza really don't strike my as the type that would be able to fulfill that role.
And on that topic, I have a hard time imagining Konatsu fucking any of those guys let alone giving birth to the child. I guess she was drunk?
You should want people to grow up, be responsible and give love to children than what a marriage means which is a paper at the end of the day and people can get a divorce. People need to be decent human beings. Caring and wanting to give love to a child that is not yours says a lot about the person you are. A single mother or father still can give love and raise their child. Yes, more difficult than two parents but they still love their child and try.
And yes, Yotaro is great for wanting to be that kid's father. Konatsu made her mistakes but she never asked him or promoted him to marry her and raise her child. It was his choice and she accepted.
Kabuki-bu LNs are getting anime next season
You won't make it better by eroding the family unit, especially farther away from larger cities, where your family is all you fucking have. There are other things that could make that erosion a less terrible blow to people, but we haven't invested in any of it. We don't have decent public schools, low crime rates, accessible mental health care, or even a positive fucking culture.
Man, what happened to this thread?
All I wanted was to discuss some good anime.
> I just want some decency in world and someone to stop the sundering of nuclear family.
No, you want everyone to align with your worldview. If you wanted to talk about the statistical reasons on why nuclear families might have a positive social impact, that'd be one thing. Instead you are making moral and value judgements which have no inherent pro/con besides the circular "I like it, and thus it is good. It's good, and so I like it.".
> It's neither your choice nor your marriage.
This is a misdirection. There is never ownership ("your") one way or another. It is a mutual agreement between parties. If that agreement is no longer upheld, there is no obligation (legally or morally) for them to remain in such a state.
> Stop being an egoistical fuck and think of your other half and posterity.
It's not egotistical to put your own needs above others. It is a fundamental need as creatures to work in our own self interest. There has never been, nor will there ever be a creature (man or otherwise) who places another's self interest above their own, even in situations that appear self-sacrificing. Again, you are placing your own moral judgement on the situation.
See above. There is no sociological or biological basis for the family unit as anything other than a comfortable tradition.
> We don't have decent public schools, low crime rates, accessible mental health care, or even a positive fucking culture.
This entire sentence is false. We have a top 15 secondary education system, the #1 post-secondary education system, less crime/murder than any other point in human history, more healthcare available than any other point in human history, and more opportunity, knowledge, ideas, art, wealth, and happiness than any other point in human history. These are facts. If you are unhappy with the current state of affairs, it is because of your inability to accept reality.
Until that time, please don't fill these threads with your shitposting.
Your argument is worthless.
Just so you don't crucify me for "avoiding" the argument I'll say this. On a purely technically level, you leap from a contract that is final to "no obligation" and you put "I" in the absulte center of meaning. By doing this you turn everythign into a subjective extra. Even if we did agree on marriage half way, that'd be not because of a good philosophy on your part, but because you felt comfortable with it there. Someone else would go farther and make even less of marriage. This is why sjw's always win. I'm not giving you an inch.
Here's my argument. Respond to this or don't at all: Men aren't all rational creatures and there exist rites and axioms (be they moral or ritual) that are used to cement good behavior. Sanctity of marriage is one such thing and there's no bartering on that, or people will erode it for convenience as we're seeing in the last 120 to 70ish years, depending where you live.
Konasu, by picking a bad man and having a kid out of wedlock shows she's heavily damaged because she broke all these social taboos (that are taboo for a good reason).
>See above. There is no sociological or biological basis for the family unit as anything other than a comfortable tradition.
Literally every statistic disagrees with you. You have higher unemployment, welfare, mental illness, and suicide rates.
>We have a top 15 secondary education system
That says more about the poor quality of most secondary education systems than it does about the quality of our own. Singapore, an utter shithole, has a more competent secondary education system than ours. The wide majority of American high schools crank out students who are not ready for college-level courses, and this has been a common complaint of professors in colleges around the country. We have high schools that are outright stating that they're preparing children for fucking community college (as in, "remedial courses at the community college"), and it, again, only gets worse outside of the major cities.
>less crime/murder than any other point in human history
We also had a significantly stronger family unit at any other point in human history.
What happens to a kid who gets booted out by his single mother and starts working minimum wage outside of high school? He ends up in a shitty apartment, this wouldn't be too bad, except these shitty apartments are always located in the rankest, most depraved parts of a town. Living here alone is an adverse effect on the person and an invitation for them to start that depressing lifestyle themselves.
>more healthcare available than any other point in human history
Mental healthcare is what I said here, though there's plenty of literature on why America's general health care is subpar for most.
>These are facts.
They're really not.
>Until that time, please don't fill these threads with your shitposting.
I bought my computer too, and you're the one responding to as many shitposts as you can.
Old men are sexy (homo)
> I don't get why so many here are getting triggered over a guy raising a child. Yotaro is the kid's father because he is the one to take care of him, be there for him from now on.
Are you a woman by chance?
Every episode just leaves me entranced, I never pause it. It feels like only 2 minutes pass by. Fantastic stuff.
>wife observed husband is a bit down
>"do you know any prostitute"
The relationships within this is confusing as fuck. But hey, here's a pupper.
Where did the cute genes come from ?
This is dangerous
Konatsu's so fucking stupid, just like her father
>There has never been, nor will there ever be a creature (man or otherwise) who places another's self interest above their own
ladies and gentlemen, i present to you a man who believes in cultural nihilism.
How can he be so liberal in some aspects, but conservative in others, to the point of letting Rakugo die out of spite?
>The shota stich has 10 replies
>Not even one for the Yota one
literally mfw this whole scene
My bet's on that she organised some faceless man to knock her up with Aniki, so she wouldn't know who the real father was, bar that he was associated with the Yakuza. Hence why Aniki looked like he knew what was up, but also didn't look like he was guilty of kumming in Konatsu.
Is rakugo really that energy-consuming?
Yota is a good and adorable father.
A god-tier episode. Finally an episode I enjoyed as much as I did those during the previous season. Everything about it was great, from Yota's confrontation with the boss to Kiku performing rakugo in Sukeroku's style.
Can anyone make a webm with audio of Yakumo's performance of Inokori? I'm shit at it.
He's having a hard time baceause he's old, yes, but that is shown with the usual sweatdrops on his face. This particular shot is just him performing Inokori, not being emotionally drained or whatever.
That I agree with, but my point is the shot which the other anon has posted is only meant to extend the parallel between the two performances, we see how taxing it is on Kiku after he finished, but he doesn't let it show during the story.
