Information on Japanese Entertainment, Pop Culture, Video Subs and some other Japan related things
Thank you so much, always great to see posts from you, you make my day!
Thanks for all the time and effort you put in to translate and sub these videos!
Thanks for the subz! :)Why did Yamasaki change his name or what's the whole story behind that?
He sort of became an apprentice to a rakugo comedian (traditional Japanese comedy), who's called Tsukitei something. Apprentices in the traditional Japanese arts generally inherit the surname of their master for their stage name. In this case, "Tsukitei".I'm not entirely sure why Yamazaki/tsukitei suddenly began rakugo. From what I've gathered, he wasn't very confident in his own ability and future as an ordinary comedian, wanted to explore new avenues, skills etc, and so tried out rakugo. Apparently he's pretty good at it though.
I see, thanks for the info! :)Looks like he is struggling hard to become popular, like always. :D
