Meet Rinka Kazuki, The Kid from Kyushu, the pride of Kink Records.
Rinka sings Enka to businessmen, housewives and lecherous pensioners at low rent venues for hundred yen notes.
On the wrong side of thirty, with a treacherous agent, unscrupulous rivals and an unsupportive lover, the odds would seem stacked against her.
But Rinka fights the good fight: her boundless optimism, a ruthless streak, and a wealth of Enka inspired wisdom will see her through the highs and lows of her relationships, the twilight world of the Enka, and the seedier parts of the Japanese entertainment industry.
