Description: Handa Seishuu is a 23-year-old famous calligrapher living in Tokyo. One day at an exhibition, Handa punches an elderly gallery curator for calling his work “unoriginal.” As a result, Handa’s father sends him off to a small remote island (Goto islands) as a punishment. Moving from the city to the remote island, Handa finds himself interacting with the villagers, living a very different life, and most of all, being influenced by a little girl named Kotoishi Naru. As Handa spends time on the island, he begins to find his own calligraphy, and he begins to change.

Notes:
– Handa is referred to as sensei or teacher throughout the anime. (NOTE I WATCH IN SUB)
– I’ve read bits of the manga (chapters not in order), and I really like it so far.
– Personally, I would re-watch the anime (a million times). It’s not super long or filled with nonsense drama/stressful cliffhangers, so I would be able to enjoy and relax watching the anime again
– The manga is still continuing, so there could be a season 2. BUT the ending is pretty concluding and satisfactory, so I don’t think the anime needs to continue.
– Read the manga here.

I will be able to get quiet a few posts in this week thanks to my 4 day weekend! ♪ヽ(´▽`)ノ
