Goodreads Synopsis:

First things first.........Visitors are supposed to come in through the front door!!
For a certain reason, a handsome, young calligrapher by the name of Seishuu Handa uproots himself and moves to an island on the westernmost edge of Japan. "Sensei," as he comes to be known, is a city boy through and through, and has never experienced rural life until now. And by the looks of it, he has much to learn! Luckily(?), he has a willing teacher in Naru, the energetic expert islander, to help show him the ropes. But can Sensei keep up with the plucky first-grader, or will he get schooled?! Here unfolds a heartfelt island comedy about a gruff on the outside, soft on the inside urbanite teacher and his new, unfailingly kind island neighbors!


Despite the fact that Yen Press has been doing a very good job of advertising this series, it’s still flying pretty under the radar for me. And yet every time I come upon it, I pause and think that I should get it. The cover is quite adorable, and for some reason it just feels like a series I will enjoy. It sounds pretty cute, and the covers are very pretty. Yen Press’s prices are higher than I prefer to pay, but I still might pick this one up when I get the chance. I’m just getting a good feeling about it—not to mention that I’ve heard some pretty good things about it.

What about you? What are you looking forward to?
