Barakamon, Battery Recommendations
- Set in a small village in the country side, with lots of nice details of country life and different accents/dialects (Okayama for Battery and Gotou islands for Barakamon).
- Prickly and ill-mannered, but ultimately talented protagonist (Barakamon details the events directly after such a person's fall from grace, whereas Battery is about the start of their pursuing their activity of choice).
- Small child actually voice by a small child!
Barakamon is a warm, fuzzy, feel-good sort of show with plenty of funny and cute moments despite the drama; whereas Battery is very heavy and makes for uncomfortable viewing at times because it doesn't gloss over flaws.
