Gin no Saji / Silver Spoon

MangaUpdates wrote:The young boy named Hachiken Yuugo apparently aspires to live separated from his family. So he takes his chances by enrolling to an agriculture school, one which requires its students to live at a dormitory. He thinks, with his talent in studying, no problem will arise no matter what kind of school he goes to. But he is proven wrong. Grown up as all-easy-to-get city boy, he is forced to uncover not-too-convenient truths about agricultural life. Enjoy the story of Hachiken, as he is trying to keep up with his friends, farmers' heirs who are already accustomed to hardworking farm life.

So far so good. :up: Probably the greatest line of all time:

"How can something so tasty come out of an anus?" :rofl:

Quite enjoyable so far! I didn't find it especially outstanding, but the way it draws attention to the reality and importance of farming is definitely appreciated. Lighthearted tone and occasionally over the top content (like that chicken-death scene in the first ep, I was like "ogodwat :uhoh: ") helps too.

I love that Arakawa makes such diverse characters and even background characters, and thats in full force in this series. Interested to see where this ends up!

Really loving this show so far. When it's finished, I'll probably try reading the manga.

I actually had no idea there was a difference between vegan and vegetarian until I googled it today. >__> I just chose the former cause it sounded cooler, lol

You get the point though :P

Damn, after being lulled into what I figured was mostly a light-hearted tone in this series, ep 3 has definitely brought some pretty hard-hitting food for thought to the table (no pun intended). I'm anticipating some very good character development from this now.

I have never been so hungry for pizza until this very moment.

Great episode this week, I loved the intense bacon angst in the middle there too :up:

My favorite episode so far. I liked how everyone got to help making the pizza, but it didn't feel forced. There's only certain people who can fix the oven, only certain people who can provide the veggies, and certainly only one person who could provide cheese. It felt like it could be a real situation at that kind of school, loved it!
