When a certain man is released from prison, he knows exactly where he's heading first.

As Yotaro happily begins his new life, he meets others in Yakumo's life, including Yakumo's ward Konatsu. Konatsu was the daughter of a famous storyteller, and Yakumo took her in after her father's tragic death.

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Marine Corps Yumi is completely ridiculous, if you're in the mood for that kind of gag manga. Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû was probably my favorite, though I was a bit more interested in Konatsu than in the main character guy . And it seems like there are actually female traditional storytellers in current day, though still not a bunch of them. Homura no Me was really violent, and not really the kind of story I was in the mood to read today. It's definitely for people who want a darker story.
My opinion: Agunesu Kamen
- If you like wrestling or want to read more about wrestling, then you should pick this manga up.Einstein 1904
- It might be interesting to check out this manga to see Einstein as a sort of detective, and to solve a mystery, no less~ If you like mysteries, then I would suggest checking this manga out.Homura no Me
- This manga is a lot darker than the rest of the manga so if you're looking for a more serious manga with some supernatural/fantasy element thrown in, then this manga may be the one for you.Marinko Yumi
- On the other hand, this manga seems a bit too silly, but if you would like to see a high school girl try her hand at being a Marine and are in the mood for slaptstick comedy, then check this one out.Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
- I agree with tethy and this one seems the most interesting to me. I'm interested in seeing how the prisoner gets reformed and becomes a story teller and how Konatsu tries to become a storyteller and possibly forge her way for other women.Translated items that need some love/scanlation:myao
