About Barakamon Manga Volume 1

Barakamon volume 1 features story and art by Satsuki Yoshino.

For a certain reason, a handsome young calligrapher by the name of Seishuu Handa uproots himself and moves to an island on the westernmost edge of Japan. "Sensei," as he comes to be known, is a city boy through and through, and has never experienced rural life until now. And by the looks of it, he has much to learn! From navigating public roads by tractor to resigning himself to having his new digs commandeered by the local children as their new hangout, the list of Sensei's hardships is shaping up to be long indeed!

Really funny and coming of age story

When I first discovered this series from funimation and watch it, I really grew into it. Its manga gives off like it was drawn by calligraphy. There are also some chapters that weren't adapted into the anime.

I LOVE this series. It has quickly become one of my all time favorite. I have to admit that before I read Barakamon, I disliked slice of lifes but Barakamon is so hilarious! The art is beautiful, some of the scenes are really gorgeous (they sparkle), the characters are funny, caring, and charming, and the stories are interesting too, they range from simple every day things to growth in characters, with lots of small town charm. I cannot stress enough how enjoyable this series is. Give it a try.
