Comments:

Onoe Tamiz˘ I was a wakaonnagata who made his career during the Meiwa, An'ei, Tenmei and Kansei eras. He was said to be good in keisei and housewives roles. Never an outstanding onnagata actor, his rankings were quite stable: j˘-j˘-(shiro)hankichi in Edo or j˘-j˘ in Kamigata for several years. This meant that he did not make any significant progress.
