YesAsia Editorial Description

Kitano Takeshi and Arashi's Ninomiya Kazunari star in the 2015 one-off TBS drama special Aka Medaka, based on the book by Tatekawa Danshun. Set in the world of rakugo, a traditional form of Japanese comedic storytelling, the television movie follows the journey of a young aspiring rakugo storyteller and his relationship with his teacher.

Aka Medaka begins in the 80s when teenaged Sasaki Nobuyuki first meets rakugo master Tatekawa Danshi at a junior high school arts festival. A few years later, he quits school and leaves home in order to train under Danshi. Earning the name Danshun, he works and studies day in and day out while dealing with the unreasonable demands of more senior disciples. Just when Danshun seems to have finally gained his parents' and his teacher's approval, a misstep leads to him being sent away by Danshi.
