Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Sukeroku Futabi-hen: Sequel to that other series about how Rakugo survived the after-war era. The series starts with Yotaro becoming a master and taking on the name of Sukeroku, the name of the other apprentice of Yakumo's master, who died young (and who was the father of Konatsu).
It's a good continuation of the previous series, and if you liked that one, you should watch this one too.

Hand Shakers: Tazuna is a mechanical genius. On a visit to repair something for a professor at the university, he meets Koyori who is lying in a hospital bed. Now they have to keep holding hands while being transported to a parallel dimension where they have to fight other pairs of "hand shakers". Their first 'match-up' is with a pair who can create chains.
What a total mess this is. It's all super-CGI-generated: everything moves and there are light reflections in every single shot... Women all have improbable busts and the antagonist pair have a heavy SM thing going on. I guess I'm too old to appreciate this kind of power-fantasy.

Kobayashi-san Chi no Maid Dragon: Kobayashi is a twenty-something software engineer, and one day she meets a dragon -- while she is drunk. She does the dragon a favour and offers her a place to stay -- and so it turns out that she gets a live-in maid who is actually a dragon...
It's kinda funny, but it looks to be a one-trick pony. And Kobayashi isn't that interesting herself. We'll give it a miss.

MARGINAL#4 Kiss Kara Tsukuru Big Bang: A boy band has their debut and it's a huge success! They cover all the character type bases, and one of their number used to be a member of a different unit -- but we're not supposed to talk about that. The other three go to the same school, and their fourth friend transfer in so they can be together all the time!
I'm pretty sure I've seen this one before? It's hard to tell those series apart...
