Synopsis

Seishuu Handa is everything a high school boy could hope to be: handsome, smart, and a calligraphy genius. Though he is revered by the whole school, Handa is completely unaware of his popularity. Much to his best friend Takao Kawafuji's amusement, Handa is convinced that the admiration of his classmates is actually bullying. Unfortunately for him, every action he takes in order to avoid being "bullied" results in another student, be they model or delinquent, joining the ranks of the Handa worshippers.

Handa-kun illustrates the hilarious high school days of the young calligrapher and his ever-growing fanbase, even though all he wants is a quiet life.

Are you the type of person that is always paranoid about what others say about you? Fearful that everyone around you is gossiping about you? Well, you should totally read this manga! It never fails to make me laugh. That i can confirm.

Disclaimer: as of now i have only read 4 chapters of this manga so i dont really know if im eligible to write this review

STORY: 8/10
The story is simple. This is about Seishuu's high school life where he is oblivious about how popular he actually is. Instead, he takes the mumbling he hears and stares that he gets, as people badmouthing him. read more

I really didn't want to be too harsh to this series, because honestly I think its alright for what it does, but the fact that this is a spin-off of an amazing manga rather than it's own thing really makes this manga less special than the concept allows it

Handa-Kun is a story of Handa-Seishu , a prodigy calligrapher who has a basic problem fitting in with the people around and his treatment with them and so hi-jinx ensues.If you didn't realize by now , this plot is eerily similar to its predecessor "Barakamon" .The difference being that instead of being treated a odd goofball read more

I made this account just to review Handa-kun. This is my first review, so I may not express myself clearly.

The manga is by no means bad, but when compared to the original that this is based off of, then Handa-kun falls a bit short/

Barakamon was funny, heart warming, and realistic. It focuses mostly on the relation of Handa and Naru. It was a master piece that i will give 10/10 after this review, but that's not the point here.

You've probably already read the summary, and think this will be a great comedy, and it is. Its so funny, that I reread it a couple times. read more
