Synopsis

Following the conclusion of the incident on Nise-emon election ceremony, Yasaburo continues to live his carefree life with his tanuki family. Meanwhile Benten has left the country to travel around the world. But one day, Yasaburo’s peaceful life was stirred again when the son of Professor Akadama returned to Kyoto, with both father and son seemingly still harbor grudges toward each other.

Commentary

The Shimogamo family welcomes you back to Kyoto, the ancient capital where tanuki and tengu societies live under and above human attention, respectively. With the core staff of the first season returning, the intricate social relations among the tanuki and tengu societies are again, richly depicted. Family relationships and drama still come to the fore in the story, not only among the tanuki siblings of the Shimogamo family, but also between the tengu Professor Akadama and his son. And those aspects are conveyed with beautiful subtlety in the visual presentation and in the dialogue. Fans of the first season can expect to find what they love from the show again here.
