Honey and Clover
This anime aired for five months in 2005 and is originally a manga (Japanese comic book) by Chika Umino.
The story includes drawing, pottery, visual art, and other forms of art. It even won the Kodansha Manga Award in the Shoujo Category! This anime also has a live-action film and a few live-action TV versions.
The story revolves around five main characters named Ayumi, Hagumi, Shinobu, Takumi, and Yuuta, and how their lives were when they were in art school. There are love triangles among them too so expect some lovey-dovey scenes. The anime is full of art, really. It’s a masterpiece of its kind.
Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu
This anime presents the extravagance of Oriental arts. Like the previous anime, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo was initially a manga by Haruko Kumota. Thanks to Studio Deen, we can enjoy it as an anime.
The story will make you travel back to 1787. The main character of the story is Youtaro, an aspiring storyteller who just got out of prison. He wanted to be a Rakugo performer. This type of art is a traditional Japanese form of comedic storytelling where a person sits in the middle of a scenario and tells comical stories with the help of a white fan and tiny cloth.
So far, two seasons have been completed, and the third one hasn’t aired yet. If you want to have fun while appreciating art, you better start binge-watching this anime now. The mise-en-scene will even inspire you to be an artist.
Barakamon only aired from July 2014 to September 2014, but it’s on the list because of its excellent plot and the lesson you can get from it.
Originally a manga (again), this was gifted to us by the great Satsuki Yoshino—the writer and illustrator of the manga.
This anime is about Shoudo or Japanese Calligraphy, which takes several years of practice to master. It’s about Seishuu Handa, who was punished for punching a famous calligrapher. His punishment brought him to the remote island of Goto, where he has to learn how to deal with his wacky neighbors while finding his own calligraphy style. All the hardships around him challenge him as he tries to fire up his artistic side. This anime is a combination of art, comedy, and innocence. It’s one of the most loved art anime series out there, thanks to the story and the people behind it.
There you have it! Let Honey and Clover, Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu, and Barakamon show you the beauty of art and inspire you to love art even more.
