After a two-week hiatus, due to a very high work load, I’m back! So let’s go with a bit of a softball question: what are your favorite slice-of-life anime?
Even though I just talked about Barakamon a few weeks ago in my last QotW, I wanted to talk about it again, mostly due to my excitement that Handa-kun, Barakamon’s prequal, is coming out next season.
If you somehow haven’t yet watched Barakamon and are also someone that is reading this article, you should fix that. Not only does it portray the proverbial fish-out-of-water story superbly, as it thrusts the city boy Handa-sensei into the wilds of nowhere island, it also has some of the best examples of kids just being kids. The juxtaposition of the high-strung Handa with the super laid back islanders, works great in generating both hilarious and heart-warming scenarios. It really makes me want to secluded myself on some remote island, especially after that last couple of weeks.
The last question:
If you have any ideas for future questions of the week feel free to leave them in the comments, otherwise, see you next Friday.
