The Series Twelve States of Mind Resulting from Drinking (Sake kigen jūnisō no uchi)

One of Kiyochika's many series of comic prints that entered his oeuvre, starting with the Kiyochika ponchi (Kiyochika Punch) series in 1881.  This series portrays the variety of emotions that drink can produce. 

The title of this series Sake kigen jūnisō no uchi only appears on what may be the first two prints in the series published in May 1885 and has been assigned to the remainder of the ten similar prints in design and content.  Seven of the prints were issued in May and July of 1885 and the remaining five prints were issued in 1888.  It is unknown why the series stopped and resumed when it did.
