Dated 17 July 2016: I sure hope Handa-kun has more than one joke

Handa-kun gives everyone the stink eye again.

Despite a fair bit of persistent reluctance remaining from the very moment I learned of Handa-kun to begin with, I watched the first episode anyway. I enjoyed Barakamon quite a bit, but essentially every aspect of the show I liked is probably going to be absent from its Handa-kun prequel. Notably, a Barakamon prequel set while the main character is a first-year high school student will not have an adult protagonist. Who in Hell thought we needed yet another anime starring a teenage boy? For crying out loud. Moreover, a Barakamon prequel will almost certain not feature Miwa or Tomo. This is unacceptable.
