"Yami no Bansosha Season 2 ~Henshucho no Joken" (WOWOW, Spring 2018) brings back the tandem of Mizuno Yuki (Matsushita Nao) and Daigo Shinji (Furuta Arata). Three years before, this unlikely pair was able to solve a series of cases involving missing women in the 1970s. Now, they team up once again after Nanbu Masaharu (Iwamatsu Ryo), a chief editor for a manga magazine for adult readers, fell to his death from the top of a building. The police regarded it as an accidental death. Publications investigator Mizuno who was incidentally looking into Nanbu's connection with a long-lost manuscript, is verifying if this is true. Meanwhile, manga expert Daigo who took over Nanbu's job as chief editor finds clues that seem to indicate that Nanbu might have been murdered after all. One of the clues was an old drawing done by a mysterious mangaka found among Nanbu's possessions. And how was it connected with the Shimoyama Incident, which is regarded as one of Japan's most famous post-war mysteries?

Here are some drama notes from "Yami No Bansosha S2: Henshucho no Joken" (Spoilers ahead!!):


Kamishibai.
Outdoor story-telling show, done by a narrator who in turn sells cheap snacks as "admission fees". It was very popular during the 1930s and declined by 1953, with the advent of television (so this means, in the timeline of the drama, kamishibai was almost dying by the time Menjo drew the "Shimoyama Incident"). For more history of kamishibai, a nice article about kamishibai can be found at wiki.
Btw, a kamishibai peddlers/narrator would bang his clapping stick or "hiyoshigi" to signal the start of the show, and Japanese kids would come running out of the house to meet him. You can hear the sound of "hiyoshigi" in the drama, during the Shimoyama Incident scene, as a sort of "hint". In Ep3, when Mizuno Yuki sensed someone watching her, you could also hear the the clicking of "hiyoshigi".

Yami no Bansosha (Spring 2015, WOWOW) stars Matsushita Nao as Mizuno Yuki, a researcher for publications. Yuki is tasked to solve a strange mystery regarding an unknown and unpublished manga found in the studio of a famous deceased mangaka, Ajima Fumiya (Bengal). In the manga, it depicts a man who draws very well, and befriends a young boy. This man who calls himself "Mangaka" stalks and kills a young woman, and buries her. The wife of Fumiya, Yoshiko (Maya Kyoko) finds the work disturbing. Not only that, newspaper clippings of a series of women disappearing in the 1970s were found alongside the work. Yoshiko and office staff, Ozawa Yukihide (Kaname Jun) ask Yuki to verify if the works were done by Fumiya, and research whether it has some connection with the disappearances. Being a former police officer herself, Yuki does not know anything about manga. So she enlists the aid of Daigo Shinji (Furuta Arata), a free-lance manga editor, and also known as an eccentric with a difficult attitude. Meanwhile, the director of the publishing company that plans to publish Fumiya's complete works is worried about the backlash that might come out if Fumiya was indeed connected with the incidents. So he asks his vice editor-in-chief Kazumine Kei (Tanaka Tetsushi) to look into the development of the case...
