Anime News Network describes the first season´s history as follows:

“The anime’s first story revolves around a mature prisoner who was released on good behavior during Japan’s Showa Genroku era (1960s to early 1970s). He is called Yotarō by others, a term that means an “anti-hero” or a “dim-witted man.” When he returns to society, he starts a new life in rakugo (comic storytelling). Touched by Yakumo’s role as the “grim reaper,” he asks the master to take him in as an apprentice. Most of the first season had delved into Yakumo’s own past during World War II and the years afterward.”

The Second season will focus more in the modern daynow with the history of Kikuhiko and Sukeroku´s Past over.
