Joshiraku Cutest Rakugo Anime Ever

Rakugo anime Joshiraku not only possesses the unique distinction of being the first rakugo anime ever (and therefore presumably the cutest), it also probably the most honest of Type B titles ever, proclaiming as it does that it is “for appreciating the cuteness of girls without intrusive dialogue” – and cute they certainly are…

For those who have not encountered it before, “rakugo” is a traditional Japanese form of solo comic story-telling, in this day and age mostly appreciated by old people and NHK viewers, and not generally associated with cute girls… possibly why Joshiraku features it only in a scant few scenes.

    the dialogue is batshit insane. moreso than zetsubou.
    I honestly tried reading it and it's just the most random japanese a japanese person can write.

    This is rakugo, aka weird japanese humor that only japanese people can understand. Even with the subs, you wouldn't get why the jokes are supposed to be funny.

    wasnt 'sayonara zetsubou sensei" rakugo? there was another I saw too, but I cant remember the name, about middle school kids, it was almost completely random, one episode one if the males notices a girl who likes to suck on pencils, he somehow got her to suck on his finger then she bit it.

    Ending was disappointing. It was a ripoff from Sumomomo Momomo, but original was way better.

    Pixelating or Censoring something, does it always means erotic right away?

    Have you ever heard the phrase "Copy Rights"?

    From the screens this looks like it could just as easily be about anthro candies. Try to guess which one makes me think of black liquorish.

    This type of anime is actually dying out, it doesn't take much of your time to go look up the likes of Sword Art Online and Accel World. Actually learn something about what is airing before assuming you know anything about the line ups.

    God there are so many clones that even those who are fans of the genre will end up sick this season. Who does research audience is women only? Does not matter if ishihara die tomorrow, the damage it will last for years or decades ..

    If I could vote you up, I would. Oyui was probably better (& cuter) than this is. I'm glad at least two people know about that show.

    It's written by the Sayonara Zetsubo Sensei guy and drawn by Yasu (Hokenshitsu). Good stuff if you're not looking for a plot! And sometimes we aren't.

    Writer is kumeta kouji aka zetsubou-sensei.
    Character design and art for manga is burikki aka TORADORA.
    There is also a random masked luchador character.

    Buriki is not the character designer. You're thinking of Yasu who did the original character designs for the Toradora light novels.

    In Japan, Americans are infamous for suing. They probably didn't have a contract with the real rights holders, so they pixelated him to make it less certain that that was the exact character they were depicting (even if everyone knows it is.)

    In Japan, "Snoopy" == "genitals".

    Is there a single series this season that is not about moe or fanservice (or both) ?

    You mean this (innocent personalities, cute with a lovely personality.) Or (It is a term often used when it comes to define characters more "fragile" or things that are appealing to the satisfaction of the female gender, as gay stereotypes (gender yuri (百合) in manga and anime).眼鏡っ娘萌え, Meganekko-moe, "glasses-girl moe", describes a person who is attracted to fictional characters with eyeglasses
    メイド萌え, Meido-moe / Shitsuji-moe, a stereotypical anime maid, butler, or other western-themed servant
    ツンデレ萌え, Tsundere-moe, describes a person who is attracted to fictional characters with a character personality that is tough on the outside, but actually caring
    妹萌え, Imouto-moe, "younger sister moe", describes a person who most likely has a sister complex
    if you are feeling bad about my definition, will complain to wikipedia. (because the definition of moe is varied) I am not against moe, I'm against uneducated users that the only thing it does is offend others :P

    Ah, another idiot who has no fucking clue what Moe means. That's perfectly fine if you don't like the series, but at least learn what the fuck you're talking about.
