Manga Review: Barakamon, Volume 11, by Satsuki Yoshino

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: June 2016
Volumes: 14+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 10. 12.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Damn it!! I'm getting married and leaving this crazy island!!!! (teary)

Handa's parents' true motivation for coming to the island is made clear-an arranged m-m-m-marriage?!!

Will handsome young calligrapher Seishuu Handa find the resolve to meet his fate?!

Add in a fight with the neighboring village's own handsome young guy, Kazuma Higashino, and Hiroshi's spate of delinquency, and you get the super-chaotic Volume 11 of this hot 'n' hearty island comedy!!


Kawafuji and the parents are still visiting for the first half of this volume. Sensei's mother is still acting nice while horrified that her son is living there. Kawafuji has an odd relationship with his parent, as well.
After that, there are lots of antics with Naru. Hiro goes through a wild phase, as he is still struggling to find some success with his future. Handa has a competition with a farmer, where he attempts to grow some vegetables, which he's never done before. And then they go fishing for octopus, which is quite interesting to see.
This series is easy and fun. I'm quite enjoying each volume, and I'm always looking forward to the next one.
