This was effing cute. I think this is going to be one of the best slice of life shows. Ever.

I wish I could punch someone and get sent to a tropical island. lol Also love how everyone seems to treat southern Japanese like it's (US) redneck talk.


I am guessing that the southern Japanese speak with a different Japanese dialect. It may not be the case but that may explain why the MC didn't understand the Grandpa when they where on that tractor.


Southern Japanese is Kansai dialect, there's probably more dialects down there, but every time someone is from like Yokohama or someplace around there, they are subtitled in "redneck" which I always think is funny. And they are on a island, but I don't think they said which one. And the islands usually get the redneck dialect as well in subtitles.

I finally got around to seeing the first episode and I loved it.



I'm also a big fan of the OP/ED. The ED is just beautiful.

I couldnt get over the main girls voice. It is actually unique. It doesnt sound anything at all like any other female VA.

And then of course I find out it actually is a child herself who is voicing her, which makes this all the more cute.

Slice of Life forever!

It feels to me that this has been heavily influenced by past Miyazaki/Ghibli works...

Preview of a spread from, I think, Otomedia:

Will share the cleaned up scan when it comes out.

Anyway, enjoyed the first episode more than I thought I would. It's probably going to be my second favorite summer anime.

Finally got around to watching this. This season just keeps getting better for me. Definitely going to be a favorite at this rate.

Also, it may be because I just watched NGNL, Black Bullet, and Chaika back to back to back, but it's really nice to see a normal little kid.

Very interesting tattoos if that's official art, the bald eagle combined with the blonde hair makes me think US military.

Which would be quite interesting to see if true.

US doesn't get it on CR either (/sadface): "BARAKAMON will be available to Crunchyroll’s audience in the following territories: Europe (excluding UK and Ireland), the Middle East, and North Africa."

FUNi announced that they have it, but I can't find it on their site anywhere for streaming yet.

Episode 2

This show is so charming and funny:


Underdog of the season. The humor was great. I lol'd @ Naru hitting Seishuu in the face when a mosquito was on it lol
