Joshiraku Review


Joshiraku (Japanese: じょしらく, lit. "Rakugo Girls") is a Japanese manga series written by Kōji Kumeta and illustrated by Yasu, telling the everyday lives of five young female rakugo comedians.
It was serialised in Kodansha's Bessatsu Shōnen Magazine from September 2009 to September 2013 and the chapters compiled into six tankōbon volumes.
An anime television series adaptation animated by J.C.Staff aired in Japan between July and September 2012, with an original video animation episode released in February 2013.
All of the girls' surnames end with the character Tei (亭), which is often used in stage names for performers.
The substantial protagonist of the manga, who has long red hair. She behaves like Edokko and speaks in a masculine tone of Edo speech, but she is actually from Tokushima Prefecture. Despite her good looks, the way she talks and her flat chest tend to lead the others into suspecting her as a boy cross-dressing as a girl.
She acts tsukkomi and often says "Don't ask a trifling question! (つまんねー事聞くなよ!, Tsuman'nē koto kiku na yo!)". Her name is a pun on Bloody Mary.
