“ “Refreshing is the word I'd use to describe this anime. You guys been wanting to watch a feel good slice of life and comedy? This is it. You'll find yourself laughing out loud, your mood lifting without even realising and your fingers itching to click on the next episode. Although, it spans over 12 episodes, it's subtly impacts you - it's not heavy on the mind but it's there.
Seishu Handa, a professional calligrapher and a born prodigy as he is taught by his father - a renowned master himself - loses control over his emotions and decks a critic who calls his work “copybook-style” - unoriginal. What came over him? That criticism hit hard because it was the truth.
As a result, his father exiles him to Goto Island for a while - where Handa is exposed to a different environment, the villagers, their contrasting views and lifestyle.
The beauty of the anime lies in Handa discovering his distinct style of calligraphy through his experiences at Goto and his interactions with the intriguing villagers - one in particular, the tomboyish and energetic Naru with her endearing innocence and childhood wisdom. Their relationship similar to that of best friends and a parent-child is the highlight of the show and the reason for Handa's growth as a person.
The show moves beyond just a heartwarming comedy and excels in going over themes of growing up and establishing one's place in the world. Honestly, I've re-watched this so many times and it still has a place in my heart - failing to bore me till now. Even if slice of life is not your genre, I urge you to give this a try. It's touching and genuinely funny. Although it's not available on Netflix - you can find it on Crunchyroll or kissanime and maybe other sites that I'm not aware of.” .
