Both shows focus on the old style of Japanese story telling. Shouwa focuses on the story telling part of the stories with one person, where Kabukibu is more of a play with a cast of people. But both share the joys of a preformance with people who are passionate about the stories they tell. Kabukibu focuses on high school club where Shouwa has a grander story to be told over all and focues on adults for the most part. Check one out if you enjoyed the other for sure.
