  • Barakamon the slice of life
    Barakamon is a great show, you learn about the characters and you learn to love them.

    Handa sei, the main character of this anime is a highly talented calligrapher, everything goes sour when the art director calls his art,
    "exactly like what you would see in a text book"

    Because Handa worked so hard on his piece he got mad and punched the director in the face.

    after punching the ...

  • A show about growth and relationships
    It's hard to put into words exactly how I feel about Barakamon. It confuses me how such a simple premise and execution could be done to this level of excellence. To me, this feels like the gold standard for "Slice of Life" anime. Everything from the setting to the characters feels incredibly warm and satisfying. This isn't an anime that thinly veils an attempt on your emotions with struggles ...

  • This guy is lucky!!!!
    When the first time I saw the first episodes it was a bit very intense!! But, throughout the whole episodes was great!! And my reaction was " Adults need some fun in their life to understand the meaning of it". This guy who is the main character was lucky that he is surrounded with kids and other people in town who motivated him and see the things that he didn't sees himself. Because he expects a ...

  • heart warming slice of life about self discovery and personal growth
    Barakamon is one of the best slice of life anime shows I've seen. It's about a young professional who leaves his city work life to get away from it all, and spends time in a small town in the country to reflect. While he is there, he is completely out of his comfort zone, but it turns out to be really good for him. Through the interactions with the townfolk, especially a young girl, he is ...

  • Cute Feel Good Anime
    This anime really touches you, being both hilarious while depicting the formation of beautiful friendships. I love how this anime simply focuses on the impact of these friendships on the main character. Each character is unique with their hilarious antics. Absolutely beautifully animated.

    Barakamon: A Story About Self-Discovery and Heartwarming Moments.
    2018 Slice Of Life series are on a streak amazing me. My long lasting guilty pleasure are those more mature slice of life series with exquisite humor. Funny thing is those series were scarce and could be counted in ten fingers. Let’s just say 2018 slice of life series added up to this number a lot. I enjoyed Barakamon a lot. It’s a story not too light nor too heavy. It has “that” which makes a ...

  • Beautiful story and beautiful feels
    This is one of the best slice of life anime out there. The scenery is so peaceful and the characters are compelling, heartwarming, and totally silly. Barakamon has great comedic relief combined with dramatic scenes that perfectly capture the complexities of emotion. Its innocent nature makes this show great for all ages and I would definitely reccommend all ages to watch this beautiful story.

  • Great fun and wholesome laughs!
    This show hit me right in the binge spot. I watched the entire 12 episode series in one day! This show is so funny and lighthearted that watching it makes you instantly happier. The relationships the main character forms throughout the series are amazing and filled with laughs and smiles. If you want to watch an anime that'll have you laughing and smiling all the way from start to finish, look no ...

  • Excellent and cheerful
    I really appreciate anime that can lift my spirits, and this one does the trick; little-to-no angst, sweet and comedic moments, and a relatable (if melodramatic) adult protagonist. I also appreciate that it concerns an art form that is relatively obscure to Western audiences, as it convinced me to look up Japanese calligraphy and expand my knowledge. I'll definitely be rewatching this!

  • Best show ever!!!!!!
    Barakamon is a great anime, with the characters having a fair bit of depth, and all being very easy to attach to. I found the character 'Naru' very sweet, and the islanders' interactions with Handa - or "Sensei", very fun to watch. The show is very warming, and when i got to the end of it, i was left with a hole in me.
    SEASON 2 PLEAAAAAAAAASE!!!!!!!!!!!
