Yuugo Hachiken is studious, hard-working, and tired of trying to live up to expectations he just cannot meet. With the ushering in of a brand new school year, he decides to enrol in Ooezo Agricultural High School, a boarding school located in the Hokkaido countryside, as a means to escape from the stress brought upon by his parents. Initially convinced that he would do well at this institution, Hachiken is quickly proven wrong by his talented classmates, individuals who have been living on farms their entire lives and know just about everything when it comes to food, vegetables, and even the physiology of livestock! Whether it be waking up at five in the morning for strenuous labor or to take care of farm animals, Hachiken is a complete amateur when it comes to the harsh agricultural life. Gin no Saji follows the comedic story of a young student at as he tries to fit into a completely new environment, meeting many unique people along the way. As he struggles to appreciate his surroundings, Hachiken hopes to discover his dreams, so that he may lead a fulfilling life on his own terms. – My Anime List
Based on 12 review scores:
In sum, it’s a show which deals with both the usual coming-of-age issues and with some unique ones as well, and where the comedy is subordinate to the serious drama (well, except for Episode 5, but I’ll let that pass.) It might turn you vegan, though.
If you are into slice-of-life anime like Lucky Star, Azumanga, and K-On or just comedy in general, I would recommend this. Also, the anime is pretty faithful to original manga source.
If you want an anime that is different from the rest, has great character development, is genuinely inspiring, teaches you lessons about life and things you never thought you’d care about, all while being insanely hilarious and being able to make you cry tears of joy and sadness, please watch Silver Spoon. It is one of the most underrated anime I have ever seen. It’s not just the fact that the series was made by the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist, it’s the fact that this show can actually teach you things about yourself that you never knew.
Silver Spoon is one of the most soothing viewing experiences you’ll have in anime. Not many anime can stake claim to being soothing but Silver Spoon really is just that. Riding on the gentle winds of the wistful countryside, Silver Spoon is markedly different from every other anime series in recent memory. It is a relaxing, heartwarming, revelation of an anime series, one that you’d never have expected to come from the same mind that brought us Full Metal Alchemist. But really that sums up Silver Spoon perfectly, sometimes the unexpected winds up being exactly what you need.
Kat’s Reviews And Writing
Silver Spoon is a fantastic anime with a perfect blend of realism and humor. The characters drive the story and even make learning fun. The only way to make it better would be to have a third season that finished some of the plotlines.
Silver Spoon is, at its heart and throughout its entire being, is a hilarious, heart-warming, heart-breaking story about realistic people in realistic situations. It offers a glimpse into a world that is largely unknown and taken for granted today. It’s a simple, beautiful story. The only thing it lacks is a clear resolution, which I dearly wish they would produce.
This show is about farming, and it shows this in depth.
Mega Prince Ytay!
This anime is really day-to-day life styled. In other words, there is hardly any structure and you really cannot expect where things will go in the next episode. The happenings can be so haphazard even within a single episode. While I am fine by that, I can imagine that some people will not like it. Either way, there are definitely pros and cons of this format. But I think this format suits the series more and I am okay with just going along with the flow. But one caution is that some episodes may seem like total filler while they are not. Hang on, there will bound to be more “boring” episodes. But I can tell you that towards the end of each season, the content is something really formidable and life changing so you will not want to miss it.
My Anime List
In conclusion, chances are you’ll most likely enjoy this series even if you have absolutely no interest in the world of agriculture. Put plainly, Gin no Saji is a warm hearted slice of life filled with plenty of comedic and relatable moments, with an exceptionally strong cast of characters and beautiful visuals. Gin no Saji portrays its story in a simple, yet enjoyable fashion. So what are you waiting for? Take the plunge into the world known as Gin no Saji, and who knows? Maybe you’ll fall in love with the world of agriculture just like Hachiken did.
There are lots of slice of life series set in high schools but this one is different; and not just because it isn’t centred on a group of girls! The story is surprisingly serious at times without being overly depressing; in fact sometime there is humour among these moments and most episodes concentrate on Hachiken’s learning about agriculture and riding rather than anything downbeat. When I first read the series summary I was unsure whether to watch it but I’m glad I did as it is an utter delight; Hachiken and Mikage are great lead characters and the rest of the cast are fun too. There are also interesting things to learn; I’d certainly not heard of Ban’ei horse racing, which involve large horses pulling heavy sledges. The animation is of a high quality and the characters are distinctive. Overall I heartily recommend the series; I just hope more episodes are made.
