Barakamon, Hinatama Recommendations
City kids move to the country side and learn some lessons. In Barakamon a bad-tempered, cynical calligraphist moves to an island in the middle of nowhere and has to learn to deal with the weird neighbor children butting into his business. In Hinatama, a high schooler from the country befriends an air-headed Tokyo teen who just moved to his rural town and winds up taking care of his little siblings and their shenanigans too. Two great feel-good stories about finding yourself, punctuated by the humorous antics of children.
There's a sense of innocence I got out of both Barakamon and Hinatama. For starters, they adapt a slice of life feeling involving a small yet colorful cast of characters. There's themes of friendship and bonding between the two main characters. On the other hand, we also get comedy from the younger characters such as the kids. They learn from both the older characters while also providing cute moments to remember by. If you're looking for a simple yet delicate slice of life series, give these two a try.
