Descending Stories Vol. 3
Small-time crook Yotaro has never forgotten the rakuo tale "Shinigami," which that master Yurakutei Yotaro performed for Yotaro during his time in prison. After his release, he goes to Yakumo's theater and pleads to be made his apprentice. Yakumo reluctantly accepts, but Yotaro quickly finds the world of rakugo is complex and grapples with a growing bond with Yakumo's ward, Konatsu, and reminders from his own inescapable past.
