Manzai Gang – Chasing the Comedian Dream — 3 Comments

  1. Have you seen Hibana Spark on Netflix? It’s a Netflix Japan original series based on the novel of the same name. An aspiring Manzai artist meets an established performer at a festival and becomes his apprentice. It’s not so much focused on the comedy like the above film but more on relationships, life, etc. Each episode plays much like independent film, very well directed and made.

    • Thanks Rich. I hadn’t seen that, but it definitely sounds like a series I’d be interested in. I’ll check it out!

    • I second the Hibana recommendation! It’s really good. One of my favorite directors, Ryuichi Hiroki, directed most (all?) of the episodes.
