Comments:

Arashi Sanjűr˘ II was a popular tachiyaku actor, who achieved fame for himself in ďsaka during the first half of the 18th century. He excelled in jidaimono dramas, especially in jitsugoto or bud˘goto roles.

He was recorded in the "Kabuki Jinmei Jiten" as being the master of Arashi San'emon VI. It was not possible for one reason: Arashi Sanjűr˘ II died in 1750, 10 years before the birth of Arashi San'emon VI.
