At the start of watching Gin no Saji, I was unsure of what to think about it. I thought it would be just a fun little slice of life anime, but what I got far exceeded my expectations.

Gin no Saji is the perfect example that we each have the ability to set our own path and believe what we want to believe. And even if we face adversity we still stand by our beliefs.

Personally I have never seen an anime in which a city boy was placed in a farming school, so kudos to the maker of the manga for doing it well. The anime read more

As an anime I picked up out of a whim I did not expect much, but nonetheless Gin no Saji delivered tenfold. Not only was it a light hearted watch with tasteful comedy given the context, but Gin no Saji really isn't afraid to explore complex issues which inevitably challenge our perspectives on our morality and allow us to really see what we take for granted.

Agriculture, mood, feeling. The slice of life element with some occasional comedy.

Both have the same setting in an agricultural high school.

Both have the same main characters who came from the city to study in the said school.

Both also involves the same main character's who are running away from something.

Both main character's wear glasses.


One anime is focus on one main character, while in the other anime it is evenly distributed among the group of characters.

the glasses wearing main character has that "from the frying pan to the fire" kind of predicament, while the other glasses wearing character is more of a "from the fire to the frying pan" thingy.
