Description
From Yen Press:

For a certain reason, a handsome, young calligrapher by the name of Seishuu Handa uproots himself and moves to an island on the westernmost edge of Japan. “Sensei,” as he comes to be known, is a city boy through and through, and has never experienced rural life until now. And by the looks of it, he has much to learn! From navigating public roads by tractor to resigning himself to having his new digs commandeered by the local children as their new hangout, the list of Sensei’s hardships is shaping up to be long indeed! Here unfolds a heartfelt island comedy about a gruff on the outside, soft on the inside urbanite teacher and his new, unfailingly tolerant island neighbors!

This is a nice little story - gentle, funny, and quite adorable. The subtle but telling effect that island life and the interactions with his neighbours has on our haughty, self-centered young calligrapher is presented with a level of tact and delicacy I did not expect to see in a manga so simple and child-like.

Each character - from the protagonist to the little kids and the neighbours, has a clearly defined personality that is as realistic and relateable as it is extremely endearing.

The art is fitting and rather pretty in a shounen-like fashion. I found the manner in which the faces were drawn particularly expressive and appealing.

Overall - really worth a read, especially if you enjoy quietly comedic slice-of-life works.

As the heading of this comment suggests, this manga is FRIGGIN ADORABLE! The lil girly's bright and laid-back personality is good to have around since that hot-headed protagonist is pretty tight in the inside and out.

Edit: I forgot to add that this manga is FRIGGIN HILARIOUS! as well.

Seriously the funniest manga I've read in a really long time. I never make comments but I just had to for this one. I definitely recommend this. The art is good too, really clean, which makes it even more enjoyable. The faces the main character pulls whenever he's baffled by the locals are really funny. Just read it and you'll see what I mean... Tip: DO NOT drink anything while reading this, lol.

This is so cute! I love these type of slice of life stories! They pull you right in! The characters are awesome. If you like Yotsuba, you will definitely love this. This is too underrated. (LOL, although when I first saw the title, I thought of Barack Obama as a digimon.

Good slice of life manga like this are hard to find. One thing I liked about it is that the characters are introduced in a gradual manner; so for once I could remember all their names in one go. This manga is pretty similar to Yotsuba, but it distinguishes itself from it with development in character and plot, which Yotsuba, despite being hilarious, lacks.

Borakamon will certainly make your day, like it did mine. Give it a go.

Ahaha..this is awesome. From the first chapter when the brat appears and pesters the Sensei I already smirking like an idiot. A calligrapher spending his training on some village, with the villagers really close to one another making the atmosphere feels like a really peaceful place. Furthermore, the characters come one another each chapter with each story making this Sensei's slice of life getting more hilarious.
