I haven’t tried Audible in all my life, but this is like saying this is my chance. They have Japanese too, which can be used for listening practice! :heart_eyes:

This is great, thank you!

I started listening to the first one in the Japanese list (without reading the title lol), and was surprised to find myself listening to an entertainer for children! Fast-speaking and kind of intense, but because it’s for kids it’s repetitive and exaggerated enough for me to understand quite a lot :smile:
I could only listen to 10 minutes before tiring out though, will come back to it and listen in 10 minute installments :sweat_smile:

EDIT: おやこ寄席ライブ 1巻

A nice gesture from them. Too bad it’s only kids books. I wonder why.

Probably to help all the people who’s kids’ schools are closed. Firstly to help keep them entertained, and secondly to provide some alternative education.

Edit - just read the message, and yes, it seems the motivation for doing this specifically comes from school closures / kids who are in isolation.

I just watched an anime about 落語 and I loved it so much, so I’m excited to see there are quite some 落語 for children in this collection. I only listened to about 10 minutes of one but I think I’ll be able to understand at least the main points, yay!

Sure, I don’t think there are many more anyways :smiley: I’m on second season now, hope it stays awesome (and maybe doesn’t break my heart again)

There was a Sherlock Holmes rakugo show recently that was not particularly interesting, so I was just hoping you didn’t mean that one sweat_smile

As well as being meant for the schools closing, it is probably partly cause they don’t want to give away big books =P

They seem to have added more items… including HARRY POTTER!! =D
