This is a criticism of Kabuki actors’ performance and their popularity. Originated in “Yaro Hyoban-ki”, a criticism of actors’ looking, that began to be published in around 1656, the criticism of acting became predominant. With “Yakusha Kuchi Samisen” published from Hachimonjiya in 1699, the basic style was defined. Afterwards, it continued to be published almost every year until the second decade of the Meiji period by altering its form and contents.
In principle, a criticism of acting in a Kaomise performance in November was summarized in a set of three books, each for Edo, Kyoto, and Osaka. The set was to be published the following January. A short novel in an Ukiyo Zoshi style was placed in an introduction part. In the main text, the actors’ rank and evaluation were written by role types.
