    I loved this series. It took a few episodes for me to really get into it, but this and Nozaki-kun ended up being my favourite series this season. Well done slice of life with enjoyable characters and some decent comedy. I really liked Naru. It would have been very easy for her to have been the "really annoying kid character" you very often get, but I found her genuinely charming and endearing. For the most part, she spoke and acted like an actual child would, where a lot of series would mess up by having her act too much like a wiseass, or worse, some precocious loli. Thankfully, neither was the case here. Handa himself came across as a flawed but quite sympathetic character. Watching his (usually startled) reactions to the things happening around him never got old! The supporting cast were great too. They were all pretty upbeat and seemed fun to be around. I'd love to go hang out with them all on that island! Overall a wonderful watch.


    I can't echo ManiacB's review enough. It did take me a little while to really get going with the series. I would only offer two other side notes as advice. The first is to watch as much as you can all together, don't watch it on a rotation with 6 other shows. The other thing of note is that the series is *extremely* Japanese, so make sure you get yourself an excellent subtitle set (the good ones will have translations appear next to Handa's Calligraphy).


    A great Slice of Life and a Heart Warming Story. At some point it felt like a Parenting Story with bit of passion for work. I really loved Naru's character and the way Handa takes care of her is very cheerful. I really loved the anime and definitely recommending everyone to watch it.


    Adorei ver , engraçada e divertida, pena que tem que ter um fim!.

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
