Barakamon : Shiman Ontsandon

“Shiman Ontsandon”
Translation : Island Dads

Handa learnt a very good lesson on when to give up and not to let him get him down last episode. I wonder what he’ll learn this week.

Even though she’s at the forefront of every episode Naru hasn’t had much to do recently so it’ll be interesting to see if she gets some air time. She’s like some guardian angel sent to Handa for the betterment of his health!

Barakamon : Hitonmochi

“Hitonmochi” (ひとんもち)
Translation : Mochi Thrown In Celebration

Over worked and not taking to moving very well Handa is determined to come up with a masterpiece. His masterpiece might put him in the hospital mind you but a masterpiece is what he is after.

He’s slowly coming to terms with having a bunch of kids surrounding him and having no real privacy, in fact I think it is making him a better person.

Lets just hope he doesn’t work himself to the ground hey?

Barakamon : Yakamashika

“Yakamashika” (やかま)
Translation : Annoying

We were introduced to the crazy world of Handa, a calligraphy genius who has been sent to a small island to “cool off” and rethink himself after punching a curator who didn’t like his work.

Through all this there is a story of a artist trying to find his own unique style.

Barakamon : Barakakodon

I like things that are a bit out there and wacky and when I read about this slice of life anime with a character shipped off to a island where he has to get used to his neighbours who are all a bit strange I was interested right away!

I’m really excited by this anime through its synopsis and can’t wait to see what its all about!

So episode 1 :

Bakumatsu Rock : Bath Concert! Lets get passionate naked!

It is easy to love this anime, it is strange in its way but has a deep message hidden within.

Even though the first few episodes have been very light hearted there is a plot underneath that I can’t wait to see come to light. With the title of this episode… I’m not sure it is going to come to light any time soon.

On with the nakedness!

Bakumatsu Rock : Passion! Lets Work!

With each episode so far our knowledge of the world around us has increased and we’ve learnt a lot about the group and about passion soul.

The reason I’ve enjoyed it so far is how different it is, the whole premise is a bit crazy and I’ve loved every second of it.
