July 6, 2014
After punching an elderly man (the curator of the exhibition) in the face for insulting his calligraphy, Seishu Handa is unofficially exiled to a small village on an island near Kyushu where he plans to improve his craft. Seishu has trouble dealing with the culture shock of the village compared to his Tokyo upbringing: the people speak with strange accents, the house arranged for him has technology from decades ago, and a small girl considers the home to be her "base." Despite Seishu's attempts to kick her out, the little girl (Naru) keeps finding ways inside and pestering Seishu, even using his calligraphy brush and paper. After arguing with Naru for a bit, he suddenly realizes what the curator meant when he said his calligraphy was too textbook-like. Later that day, Seishu is briefly introduced to several of the villagers as they gather to help him move in the rest of his belongings from Tokyo.
