Kodansha and their partners must really like Liden Films despite the fact that Tokyo Revengers and Farewell My Dear Cramer had mediocre artwork and pitiful animation.

Kodansha is always fond of Liden Films since half a decade ago, they are the ones who ask Liden Films to pump out cheap manga adaptations simply to generate some solid profit (and also to boost the sources' sales) regardless of the anime's performance.

Don't know anything about this, but I'll definitely check it out on the rakugo premise alone. I can't imagine this is an action heavy series, so hopefully it won't be held back by any animation issues.

Kodansha also uses amimaru for their manga translation so it seems like they're more interested in cheap than good.

I was surprised to learn that the first volume of the manga has been translated into English and is available from Kodansha (and Amazon) as My master has no tail.

Volume 2 just came out on Tuesday too.

Hoping the anime turns out to be good.

To my knowledge, Viz Media manga (minus Viz Signature) in the UK is cheaper than Kodansha Comics, as some Viz titles will go for either £6.99/£7.99 while a Kodansha title will cost £9.99/£10.99.

That's why I was not optimistic for Cramer when an anime was announced. I know how Kodansha operates and anime is only a means to an end.

I meant in terms of production costs, not product pricing. Kodansha may charge more than Viz, but they contract some of their translations to amimaru, which pays exploitatively low rates. As a result, many of their English releases range from noticeably awkward to borderline-unintelligible.
