Barakamon Timeline, Synopsis, and Release Dates

Barakamon Watch Order, Synopsis and Release Dates

There are two other productions for Barakamon anime, but in what order should you watch them all? Here is the chronological order. Barakamon is a cute anime following the story of a talented calligrapher who is also a little high-flown. This calligrapher whose name is Seishuu Handa is exiled to an island that is very far away from Tokyo, and he starts to live a “peaceful” life there. There are three works that are part of the same universe, and people wonder what the other works of Barakamon are about, and how to watch them in the correct order. Let’s check out the other productions, the release dates, and the recommended watch order.

How to watch ‘Barakamon’ in chronological order

  • Handa-kun (2016)
  • Barakamon (2014)
  • Barakamon: Mijikamon (Special episodes, 2014)

Handa-Kun is the prequel for Barakamon, in which Handa’s earlier life is examined. Despite being a fairly enjoyable anime, Barakamon fans do not think that it is as good as the original one. Handa-Kun focuses more on the comedy aspects while Barakamon is about the story of Seishuu Handa. Barakamon is the main anime, which tells the story of the talented calligrapher Seishuu Handa. After a veteran insults him in an exhibition, Handa reacts rather harshly given his pompous nature, and that gets him exiled to Goto Islands. Barakamon: Mijikamon, on the other hand, is a series of special episodes of Barakamon. There are thirteen short episodes of that, each running approximately for two minutes. You can binge-watch it once you finish Barakamon.

What’s the watch order of ‘Barakamon’ anime?

You can watch the series in the chronological order we gave above, but do not think that watching one anime will spoil the other. Although Handa-kun is the prequel for Barakamon, the latter does not spoil the former as it tells a different story. You can watch in whichever order you want, just be sure to watch Mijikamon directly after watching Barakamon.

Here’s the plot of Barakamon anime series:

“Seishuu Handa is an up-and-coming calligrapher: young, handsome, talented, and unfortunately, a narcissist to boot. When a veteran labels his award-winning piece as “unoriginal,” Seishuu quickly loses his cool with severe repercussions. As punishment, and also in order to aid him in self-reflection, Seishuu’s father exiles him to the Goto Islands, far from the comfortable Tokyo lifestyle the temperamental artist is used to. Now thrown into a rural setting, Seishuu must attempt to find new inspiration and develop his own unique art style—that is, if boisterous children (headed by the frisky Naru Kotoishi), fujoshi middle schoolers, and energetic old men stop barging into his house! The newest addition to the intimate and quirky Goto community only wants to get some work done, but the islands are far from the peaceful countryside he signed up for. Thanks to his wacky neighbors who are entirely incapable of minding their own business, the arrogant calligrapher learns so much more than he ever hoped to.”
