Another character trailer for the anime My Master Has No Tail has been released. One of the four greatest Kamigata Rakugo storytellers and a man who is relentlessly pursued by debt collectors, Tsubaki Byakudanji, is featured in the new teaser.
Character trailers for the main character Mameda, Bunko Daikokutei, and Shirara Tsubaki have previously been made available.
The Japanese premiere of My Master Has No Tail is scheduled for September 30. The "Taisho rakugo fantasy" manga by TNSK, which was released by Kodansha in 2019 and had eight tankoubon volumes as of June 2022, served as the inspiration for the anime. The manga is released under the Afternoon KC imprint and is serialized in the Good! Afternoon magazine.
Kodansha describes the manga as:
Mameda is a tanuki who was born in the wrong era – all she wants is to trick humans, but that age of tanuki shenanigans is over. But one woman, a rakugo master named Bunko, shows Mameda it’s still possible to cast magic on humans…only with words, not illusions. Mameda is determined to become Bunko’s apprentice, but can she convince the stoic master to take her on…?
