Manga Review: Barakamon, Volume 15, by Satsuki Yoshino

Rating (Out of 5): ~4
Publisher: Yen Press
Release Date: February 2018
Volumes: 17+
Spoilers?: No.
Volume: 1. 14. 16.

Goodreads Synopsis:

Severely overestimating the villagers' wealth, Handa-sensei finds himself quite short on students for his calligraphy school upon announcing his exorbitant tuition rate. But as his hopes begin to fade, a savior appears!?


(New volume is out, so I better review the last one, ahhhh...)
The harsh realities of life are crashing down on the villagers. Hiroshi's graduating soon, and he'll be off to Tokyo. Handa-sensei is now attempting to be a teacher, on his own, and now he's being told he has to pay his own rent. Ahhh, life.
Handa is attempting to find students, and has to set up a classroom. Thankfully, Kawafuji shows up to help, as Handa really has no sense on how to do any of this. Kawafuji also gives him a reality check, in the form of what each student should actually be paying for the classes. Handa was practically in some other world for his budget.
Even though some real progress is being made, it's still crazy and hilarious. The antics and the everyday life of living in the village, with festivals and weather changing.
I just love this series. It's so fun, and I forget between volumes, just how much I enjoy it.
