Barakamon main image

The slice-of-life comedy centers around the ikemen (handsome) 23-year-old calligrapher Seishuu Handa, who moves to the remote Gotou Islands off the western coast of Kyushu. Seishuu grew up in the city, and the manga chronicles Seishuu's interactions with the people of the island, who drive tractors on public roads and don't enter through his front door when they visit. On top of that, Seishuu's house becomes a hangout for the island's children.
