Description
When a certain man is released from prison, he knows exactly where he's heading first. After falling in love with a traditional comic storyteller's rendition of the story called "Shinigami," he is determined to become his apprentice. The performer, Yakumo, has never taken an apprentice before, but to everyone's surprise, he accepts the eager ex-prisoner, nicknaming him "Yotaro."
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. Konatsu loved her father's storytelling, and would love to become a performer in her own right--but that path is not available for women.

Note: Won the 38th Kodansha Manga Awards for Best General Manga and the New Creator Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize in 2017.

Ehhhhhhhh I spent know that this mangaka made this! It's currently a winter 2015-16 anime series! I would love for a group to pick this up, since her artwork is amazing! I love how in her previous yaoi works, she uses mostly washes of colors instead of screentone. I only watched the anime in the background of my TV, but after reading Itoshi no Nekokke, I'll watch it more carefully~
