An anime television adaptation of the Handa-kun spin-off manga was announced on Square Enix’s Gangan Online website on February 1, 2016. It began airing on July 7, 2016 on TBS and CBC, and later began airing on MBS, BS-TBS, and TBS Channel 1. The 12-episode series was directed by Yoshitaka Koyama and produced by Diomedéa. Michiko Yokote, Mariko Kunisawa, and Miharu Hirami wrote the series’ scripts, while Mayuko Matsumoto designed the characters and Kenji Kawai composed the music.

Funimation has also licensed the series for streaming and home video release and plans a broadcast dub for the series.

Seishu Handa 
is a 23-year-old master calligrapher who dedicates his life to the art. His real name is Sei. After punching a gallery curator for calling his calligraphy “boring,” “rigid,” “academic,” and “bland.” , he is sent by his father to a small town in the Goto Islands to focus on his calligraphy as he waits out his “banishment”. He is typically childish and a short-tempered adult. He’s also easy to scare. He’s affectionately called “Sensei” by the people of the village area of town. As a teenager, he was equally popular among the boys and girls from his school but was under the impression that most of the school hated him when in fact, he was worshipped by others who misunderstood his methods from interactions with him. He eventually discovers the truth of his reputation and was dismayed to hear his best friend was teasing him the whole time. While Handa came to understand that, he was overwhelmed by the popularity.
Naru Kotoishi 
is a 7-year-old (6-year-old in the beginning) girl in her first year at a local elementary; she lives on the Goto Islands alone with her grandfather. Her personality is very energetic, curious, and childish. She visits Handa’s house every day to play. She is typically reckless, thinking after she does; this is shown by all the time she disobeys Handa.
