About Barakamon Manga Volume 1

Barakamon Manga 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

by -

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.

A must-read slice of life comedy

by -

Barakamon is an all around great comedy manga. The jokes are well-timed and fall back a lot on the charisma of the characters, which through their different unique quirks and interactions with each other draw you in closer and make you feel right at home. A great read with great pacing and a surprisingly deep exploration of the artist and what it takes to be one

Picked up this manga after watching the anime - it's a hilarious and heartwarming show. Even shounen fans should give this manga a chance. Highly recommend this manga. Came in perfect condition
