Honestly, I was doubtful at first when I read the description for this anime. I heard really good things about it, however, I never gave it a try due to the gifs I saw of it. I thought the anime was going to be too much of a comedy and would have no serious aspects to it, but boy was I wrong. I thoroughly enjoyed the amount of comedy that was in Barakamon. Upon watching the first episode, I pulled an all-nighter just to finish it. I was addicted. Of course, my body regretted my decision once I hit my third class period in school, but I was internally thrilled about how good it was. From this experience a couple weeks ago, I learned to never judge a book by its cover, or an anime in this case. Yes, I know that line is overused, but it simply fit.
Moving forward, what I enjoyed most about this anime was the motivational words that appeared from time to time and the neat little sayings the characters stated. I decided that I should share those inspiring words and rather…entertaining quotes that peeked my interest, with others who lurk under the anime tags.
“If letting a child leave the nest will teach him how to fly, then surely it must be for the best.”
“Simplicity is the easiest path to true beauty.”
“Right now I’m in total darkness, but I’ll definitely find the light.”
“You won’t see any opportunities from below if you keep looking above your head all the time.”
“You ain’t gonna know unless you climb up yerself. Ain’t no way to look if you don’t try.”
“The role of the young is to break new ground without fear of failure. Remain in memories, not record books! Lose the battle, win the war!”
“If we continue on the same path, we are likely to meet again.”
“Come here, kitties!”
“Is God testing me?”
