The tale of Tiger & Dragon revolves around Rakugo, a traditional form of Japanese comedy that can look back on an impressive 400 year long history. Nagase portrays the Yakuza follower Toraji who goes to a Rakugo performer to collect debts, while Okada plays Ryuji a talented Rakugo player who wants to leave behind the old fashioned world of Rakugo for good. Shortly afterwards these two very different characters happen to cross paths through a girl named Megumi and that's when all the real trouble starts igniting...

If you're expecting a love story, love triangles or squares, something shoujo manga-like, then don't even start downloading... There's no such bs here.

Toraji (Nagase) is not good at classical rakugo at all, even though he's really enthusiastic. But he finds out that telling one of his night jakuza stories in rakugo style gets the audience interested. So he starts to look for adventure and then tell it on the stage.

This drama has a very subtle humor and lots of wordplay, so if you understand japanese, you'll enjoy it two times more.

As this is my favourite all time drama, I give it a

5 out of 5.

This drama is like a mind-f**k film at first... It's just nuts, and I love it. Thanks to this I also came across the anime Tora Dora which looks promising, though most likely shoujo manga-like ;)
