Barakamon contains episodes 1-12 of the anime directed by Masaki Tachibana.

After an unfavorable critique drives uptight young calligrapher Sei Handa past his breaking point, his parents decide to ship him off to Japan’s Goto Islands to cool off. But instead of a peaceful paradise, Handa discovers a village full of quirky characters with little regard for personal space. On top of that, Handa’s temporary apartment has already been claimed as home base by the village elder’s granddaughter, Naru, who has a knack for getting into trouble. Will Handa ever be able to redeem his impulsive misdeed? Will he ever be able to write like the masters? Will the village kids ever learn to KNOCK first?

Great Anime and great rerelease

by -

Barakamon is one of the greatest anime of all time. It is a very heartwarming and funny show. In the 12 episode who will get to know and love everyone on the island. The Blu Ray is nice as well and has a reversible cover so I looks better on the self.

Don't let Barakamon slip by you...

I enjoyed this anime as a sort of culture shock situational comedy series, as Handa the calligrapher, is forced to vent his frustrations at an island community. One can only laugh as Handa leaves the modern day Tokyo lifestyle to a country lifestyle devoid of those modern conveniences, and where the people act and behave very differently than he's used to. The neighborhood kids; especially, Naru tend to drive him nuts at first, but I liked the way the anime creates subtle changes in his attitude and the growing attachments he forms with the children and people on the island.

The series is in 1080p 16:9 format, and don't forget to check out "Handa-Kun" as well.

Unbelievably good

I had very little expectations going into this one. I had heard it was good though so I gave it a try. I am also not a big fan of comedy but this is the funniest anime I’ve seen and is one of the few that actually gets me to audibly laugh. The story is also great and I love all the characters. With only one cringeworthy uncomfortable scene with a sea cucumber this would have been a pretty clean anime but that one scene was just too distasteful for me. Other than that though it’s about perfect and one of my favorites.

It Will Cleanse Your Soul

Barakamon is about a calligrapher who is at a crossroads in his life and with his art. After an unfortunate incident, his family decides that he should leave Tokyo and live on an island to work things out. On that island he starts to shed himself and come out new as he learns new things, meet new people, and of course, have some laughs with good ol' Naru.

Barakamon is like a nice easy walk through the woods as slice of life laughter and relatable anxieties are tackled. It's enjoyable no matter who many times you watch it and the characters are just too adorable.

Special features include commentary on the first and last episodes. They're a blast to listen to and it's heartwarming how much the VAs loved working on it.

great addition to my collection

this is about Handa-kun all grown up. still socially awkward, still clueless in a few ways, but as always a good heart. struggling to find his own style as well as himself, while dealing with the children of the island that keep breaking into his home. sure to make you laugh. as it says it takes a village to raise a man.
