Goodreads Synopsis:

Don't lose sight of what you set out to do!

The cold north wind sets in on the island and handsome young calligrapher Seishuu Handa longs for his winter clothes. But instead of Kawafuji making the delivery, Handa's parents decide to make their island debut--and come bearing much more than just winter clothes...! Double the trouble arrives on the island in this chaotic, hot 'n' hearty comedy! Go back to the country and back to the basics in Volume 10 of Barakamon!


I just eat up every volume of this series. I love it so much at this point.
This was another humorous, fun volume, full of antics.
In this volume, the main point is that Handa’s parents come to town. They get to see the place that Handa has been living, the tiny town he’s staying in, and the group of people that he’s formed friendships with. It’s not quite what they expect, and his mother especially doesn’t know how to handle it. Naru, in particular, gives her a huge scare at one point.
Handa also forms an understanding with his father, whom he has always thought didn’t like him and who he’d never measure up to. Being forced into a calligraphy competition with him shows him a different side of his father, while also an ego-blow at times.
Then there was that cliffhanger…
I can’t wait for the next one, this series is always a delight to read.
