Barakamon, Vol. 1 by Satsuki Yoshino

First things first.........
Visitors are supposed to come in through the front door!!

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! Luckily(?), he has a willing teacher in Naru, the energetic expert islander, to help show him the ropes. But can Sensei keep up with the plucky first-grader, or will he get schooled?! Here unfolds a heartfelt island comedy about a gruff on the outside, soft on the inside urbanite teacher and his new, unfailingly kind island neighbors!

Funny, lighthearted and generally very well written. As a bonus, there are chapters which are manga-only, and not seen in the anime adaptation.

Good start to yet another manga series I'm sure I'll keep up with. Characters, story, tone and art style, tone were pretty good.
