What about young dirk becoming infatuated with a random blackwing guard who isn’t actively horrible and chats to him occasionally because he’s starved of human connection and emotional outlet :(((

This kind of hits on my Big All Encompassing Thought atm which is “Why is Dirk reasonably socially adjusted but Bart looks like the result of the Mouse Utopia experiment?’

Dirk is able to communicate, emphasise and fit more or less into modern life. We can see he is able to feed and dress himself - and although he seems to have some trouble understanding other people’s motivations (“Are you… mad at me?” and the awkward friendly Farah pat) he is able to emphasise (“You fell in love…”) shows he did have some social development. I mean, we’re told in Season 2 that Dirk was able to socialise with other Projects - and maybe there were some Black Wing guards in there too.

But BART, man. Bart shows none of the behaviour we would expect of someone socialised at a young age. She regularly stoops and seems malnourished. She is very non-verbal, and seems unable to empathise (I can’t remember the exact quote but “When they’re dead they’re not happy anymore!”). It’s probable that she was one of the ‘dangerous’ projects and kept isolated, even from guards.

So - going back to the original prompt - Dirk should be, in some ways, really grateful that Black Wing made the choice to socially develop him. Because we know the alternative and - for someone who is not made immune by the universe - his life would probably have ended well before it began.

Hey everyone! For once, I come bearing fic that isn’t about someone from Yuri on Ice. My friend Dove commissioned me to give Handa Seishuu from Barakamon a miserable cold, so here it is.

For those who aren’t familiar with Barakamon, it’s about a young man in his early 20′s who is trying to be a professional calligrapher. His emotional issues get the best of him, and he ends up punching someone important to the calligraphy industry. As a result, his family makes him move from Tokyo to a small, rural island, where he slowly starts learning the value of things other than being perfect at calligraphy. It’s a really good series and I highly recommend it.

In this story, Handa catches a cold while trying to meet a contest deadline. He doesn’t seem to know what resting is, and he makes himself significantly worse. 

As always, feedback is appreciated. I’m still open for commissions, so if there’s anything you’d like, please let me know.


Handa Seishuu isn’t stupid.

No, really, he isn’t. The situation he’s found himself in might make him seem like an utter moron, but he got here through logical means. No, really.

Okay, so the situations is as follows. Handa Seishuu is, once again, a patient at the island hospital. While he is not convinced that he actually needs to be here, the hospital is literally the only health care option in town besides an old woman who hands out herbal concoctions that Handa is pretty sure are poisonous. If he were home in Tokyo, he could get an antibiotic prescription from a doctor in an office, fill said prescription at a trustworthy chain pharmacy, then go recover from his bronchitis and sinus infection at home.

Here, the doctor insists that he has to stay in the hospital because no one trusts him to take care of himself—apparently, it’s his right to make that assessment. Just because he passed out on top of Hiro does not mean that he wouldn’t have woken up and handled his own business. 

Also, Nurse Ikue somehow came to the conclusion that Handa was hitting on her, because he was sweaty and red-faced when she checked his temperature—sit didn’t occur to her that said red sweatiness was caused by the fever she recorded on his chart.

On top of that, Miwa keeps crouching under his window playing ghostlike noises on a tape recorder, which startles him literally every time even though he knows it’s her. Being startled makes him cough, which makes his throat ache and his lungs throb and his head hurt and if he had the energy he’d absolutely throw a cup at her head. 

Handa does not have the energy. He feels like something that’s been dredged out of a bathtub drain. Every breath is a labored, shuddery gasp that makes his ribcage feel like it’s being stomped on. His sinuses are packed with disgusting green gunk that he can’t dislodge no matter how many times he blows his nose. Which would be every ten seconds if he actually had the strength to pick up a tissue and force air through his face as often as he feels the need to. He can’t stop shaking because it feels like someone dumped a bucket of ice water all over him. His ears are so clogged that everything sounds muffled and distant, which unfortunately makes the ghost recording sound more real. His limbs hurt, his chest hurts, his head hurts, his nose hurts, his ears hurt, everything hurts.

And the final indignity? His nose and sinuses itch so bad it makes him want to claw his face off, but if he sneezes, his headache is going get infinitely worse. So he has to suppress it. Which is takes energy. Which he doesn’t have.

About MKS, the main artist. It is actually a pseudonym used by some studio Trigger artists, the main one is Yoneyama Mai. You can look at her art and see how it looks like t7s art. People aren't so sure about the other members, but Iwasaki Shota is the other one usually mentioned. Some people also mention Handa Shuhei, but he isn't likely to be part of MKS.

先生 x 2!!

Barakamon is the most adorkable show ever - with a surpirsing amount of relatable and profound artistic messages! T3T That monologue about inspiration? Right in the kokoro, man. Handa-senseeeeeeei~~ ♥

Also, I just found out today that there is a prequel manga to Barakamon called “Handa-kun”? Official high-school shenanigans???! Omg count me in.

If Naru has fun with one grumpy calligraphy sensei, imagine her with sensei x 2! I had to draw them both, obviously. ;w;

The Barakamon Museum is open on the 3rd floor of Animate in Ikebukuro from August 5-17. It features replicate illustrations from the manga, setting materials and scenes from the anime, and messages from the cast. Unfortunately photos were only allowed in the tiny photo corner.

The cast messages were pretty neat with each person writing their ikigomi for the anime in calligraphy. Hara Suzuko’s (Naru) was cute. The most impressive one was of course Suwabe’s. Iirc he has a rank in calligraphy.

The anime series isn’t even over yet but I’m already hoping for a second season! This is easily one of my favorites of the season. I highly recommend the manga, and also the spin-off Handa kun. I think I may have laughed reading Handa kun more than Barakamon. XD He’s such a silly character. OnoD’s a perfect fit for him.


I tried to explain personalities of Arashi members using seiyuu (^^;) why do I have the feeling that I will regret this later?(°□°;) But for now I’ll leave it here (^___^)

(It was hard to find all of the pictures so some quality is really lacking, www But I really wanted to make this post so here we go!(^^;;))


1) Ohno-san has this really Kuroko-like persona, to the point that I have already numerous times went “ Wait, was he there the whole time?!” (^^;) But still he is one amazing and talented person . Therefore I pick Matsuoka-kun. Not to forget that he’s also the Leader of Arashi so NamiDai would be a nice addition to his character explanation,wwwww

2) MatsuJun is a handsome Do-S, with a smile that kills(⊙□⊙♡). So I picked the most intelligent (in my opinion) S-seiyuu I could find, Terashii! And the most “Bring on your teasing! I can take it!”-ikemen, Eguchi. J also is nearsighted so the fact the both Terashi and Egu wear glasses makes this choice better.

3) Sho-san is amazing at doing different kinds of things and changing his personal, after all, he is hosting a News show and moments later turns his dorky side ON. (No, really! How many other serious news-anchors are dorky? Very few!) He also has very good leading ability (being Arashi’s Shadow Leader and all) Therefore SuzuKen was a natural choice! Sho also have a cunning S-side, aka the reason why I chose Ryohei-hei, www (^_^)

4) Aiba-chi is the dorkiest of them all. But also have the really cool grown up and smexy side (*////*). Just like OnoD. It’s always fun watching what he has come up with (^3^)! And sometimes I think that the upper half of his face and the way he smiles really remind me of Zakki (^__^) He also likes kids and animals, something that can be related to OnoD as well. And um…Zakki is already a doggy (^_^)
(Also, yes, OnoD + Zakki also equal Handa-kun, wwww but that’s a whole other story,wwwww)

5) Arashi’s Brat no.1 aka. Nino is practically Irino-n! They really are one and the same,wwww both like eating, are talented actors, often have bored and tired expression on their faces even though they are on camera. And they love, just LOVE teasing everyone in sight, seniors and juniors alike! If there is something about other people that bothered them, they just say so. The teasing-power is also very strong within Natsuki-n, And I’m glad that it’s not that strong in Nino,wwwwww otherwise he would be out out the show business in a minute,wwwww! (^^;) But there is one other thing that made me choose Natsuki for Nino’s character explanation. And that is, the way Nino-chi sometimes dresses….people who saw VS Arashi and other shows will understand (^^;) Miyu would never wear clothes like that but I have a feeling that Natsuki would be just fine with them (^3^;)wwww

Wellp, this was my opinion.(^__^)/ I actually had fun making this post!(^3^)♡
