81 Produce goes wild and presents us with a BL meets Rakugo TV show in 2021.
For that don’t know what rakugo is, a brief explanation:
Rakugo is a form of Japanese verbal entertainment.
The lone storyteller (rakugoka) sits on a raised platform using only a paper fan and a small cloth as props, and without standing up from the seiza sitting position, the rakugoka depicts a long and complicated comical (or sometimes sentimental) story.
Rakugo works both as a monologue or a dialogue between 2 or more characters. To tell the characters apart, the rakugoka changes his pitch, tone or does a slight turn of the head.
Bokura Teki ni wa risou no Rakugo is going to premiere on Tokyo MX and BS Nippon TV in January 2021.
A promotional video is out.
For this TV show, all 4 seiyuu will be acting as members of the rakugoka family – Mousou Tei – that specializes in telling BL stories.
The 4 rakugokas frequent a café and there they observe the customers and clerk, and develop BL stories. Those stories will be acted as well as the rakugokas imagine / craft the story.
Each episode is going to be 30 minutes long.
The music video for the TV show’s theme song, Mousou tei no Tema, is out.
