Seishuu Handa is an up-and-coming calligrapher: young, handsome, talented, and unfortunately, a narcissist to boot. When a veteran labels his award-winning piece as "unoriginal," Seishuu quickly loses his cool with severe repercussions. As punishment, and also in order to aid him in self-reflection, Seishuu's father exiles him to the Goto Islands, far from the comfortable Tokyo lifestyle the temperamental artist is used to. Now thrown into a rural setting, Seishuu must attempt to find new inspiration and develop his own unique art style—that is, if boisterous children (headed by the frisky Naru Kotoishi), fujoshi middle schoolers, and energetic old men stop barging into his house! The newest addition to the intimate and quirky Goto community only wants to get some work done, but the islands are far from the peaceful countryside he signed up for. Thanks to his wacky neighbors who are entirely incapable of minding their own business, the arrogant calligrapher learns so much more than he ever hoped to.

How to Write Real Children: A Guide.


One of the best slice of lifes out there. You’l laugh a lot and have heartstrings pulled watching Handa trying to adjust to this crazy town.


A summer adventure of fixing yourself after punching the elderly in the face. I mean he did deserve it but still, it’s about the journey!


Never has a show felt more nostalgic, homely, inviting, and familiar despite having never experienced anything like its endearing story.


Barakamon is one of the most relaxing animes there is. If I had to describe Barakamon, it would be true happiness.


When you’re faced with an obstacle you need to take a moment to remember that it’s the little things in life that get you through the day.


Feel good series that tugs at your heartstrings and your funny bones in equal measure.
