Comments:

Daimatsu Hyakusuke was a popular and talented d˘kegata in ďsaka, who was active from the 1710s to the 1760s. One of the few Kabuki actors who had their name put in the title of a kaomise drama (in 1756 in the case of Daimatsu Hyakusuke)

[1] A rare event for a d˘kegata actor.

[2] In fact, a comical character looking like T˘nai Tar˘. This character was famous in ďsaka as it usually performed the ropp˘ technique in the tanzen style.

[3] This drama was revived a few times in Kamigata up to 1816.

[4] Unknown casting.

[5] This was the premiere of "ďgiya Kumagai".

[6] If you click on the visual link, the rank of Hayakawa Hatsuse was the one on the right side, not the left one which was much more usual.

[7] There were two zamoto at the Naka no Shibai, Mimasu Daigor˘ I and Nakamura Utaemon I, and there were two kaomise dramas produced in this theater. They did work together on the first kaomise drama but only Nakamura Utaemon I produced the second kaomise drama. The two dramas had a different casting but used the same title "ďzatsuki Shuen no Kachidoki".

Yamamoto Sakuya I and Daimatsu Hyakusuke playing the roles of Shigehachi and Tokubŕ in the kaomise drama "Meryű Oryű Kogane no Uroko", which was staged in the 11th lunar month of 1717 in ďsaka at the Higashi no Shibai
