great slice of life - arakawa sensei is my goddess - may she continue to win awards forever!!!! aku no hana is genius as well - one of the most twisted and deep psycho-dramas ever (only problem is the scanlations are WAY too slow - i'm dying to see what happens next)!!! nice to see shuuzou oshimi getting some well-deserved recognition as well - yuutai nova by him is also amazing!

Well I can see why people would think Gin no Saji is boring as it's merely a farming slice-of-life coming-of-age story and there's no action, totally unlike FMA, and granted the first few chapters are kind of boring.

But seriously, as it went on, it started hitting it's stride and got really really funny. And it teaches you alot about the agriculture process and farm life in general, which I have a slight interest in. I felt like the manga really got good during the Pizza arc.

I've heard about this, and even wanted to try it, since I love FMA, but shounen about farmers... Just doesn't sound exciting enough.

Heard of it before, didn't seem interesting. Only other I know about is Aku no Hana, but I've read nothing but bad things about it ever since I PTR'd it.

Some of these seem interesting...I Am Hero.

Although Silver Spoon's riding on Arakawa's previous success, it's a great SoL whose topic the mangaka has a personal connection with. It's certainly a 180 from FMA, however, so it's kind of ridiculous that some people are disappointed in it just because it's not an action series.
