  • Super cute and funny
    This is by far one of the best slice of lifes I have ever seen. Not a moment is uninteresting in this hilariously adorable story about the true damage that can be caused by a mere shoe. I really wish I was allowed to make these reviews a bit shorter.

  • I would never have known
    I would not have guessed this anime would be so funny. I found myself cackling during every episode. It really didn't sound interesting at all and I wondered why it was in the mature genre. I'm so glad I went by the rating and not the description. This is definitely one of my favorites now. REALLY enjoyed this.

  • I loved it, I makes me want to learn more about calligraphy
    It captures your attention as a story about finding yourself, but not in a typical way. I liked it because it was able to capture and maintain my attention. It was a good story about community and what it takes to be great. I hope to see another show like this again soon.

  • 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 ...
