While both shows are slice-of-life with an agricultural basis, Moyashimon focuses more on bacteria/microscopic organisms and various types of brewed drinks, whereas Silver Spoon looks more at farm animals and dairy. Those interested in both relaxing and informational shows with fun and quirky characters should check it out.

Slice of life series with a taste of realism. Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon) and Barakamon shares a number of similarities. The main male protagonist is abruptly thrown into a new environment where he isn't used to. In the beginning, they cope with their new living conditions. However through experience, they are able to earn the respect of other characters he meets. The relationship dynamics are perhaps the most important element as the MC blends in with others while developing his own character. Recommended for all ages especially those seeking a realistic slice of life.

Both anime share the same genre and story revolving around agriculture, the protagonists have suffered thru some trauma that has left it's scars, but are still diligently working and growing. The plot is similar in that main characters in both anime come from the city and have a fun yet annoying time fitting in.

The general vibe of a protagonist trying to navigate his life seems similar. The level of humour seems similar, too.

A boy goes to a special high school. Gin no Saji is about Hachiken trying to get used to the agricultural lifestyle, while Shokugeki no Souma is about Souma trying to become the best chef. They are both hilarious comedies involving delicious-looking food.

Similar in that both series deal with young adults/adolescence either pursuing their dream or going on a journey of self-discovery.

A character moves from Tokyo to counryside, where he (or she) goes to school, makes new friends and does his (her) best to adapt to countryside life, thus getting into all sorts of ridiculous situations. Both shows are heartwarming, have nice sceneries (especially non non biyori).  
report Recommended by Saijuro
Both are made from Hiromu Arakawa. Both animes have a good sense of comedy, drama, and romance. Even though FMA deals with the supernatural and Gin no Saji is more reality based, they are both extremely good animes that deal with the struggles that occur during life. The problems that the main character from both series are extremely relatable to normal people.

These anime series are similar to each other because they are both slice of life who don't resort to the school setting. These two shows have a big selection of characters and have really good comedy, characters interactions and even some romance. Really like this two shows and since that in my opinion they are similar i am making this Recommendation. Hope it helps someone :)

- Both takes place in more scenic/rural parts of Japan - Relaxing pace - Both teaches you about a specific craft (camping vs. farming)

Both shows focus on shut protagonists who grow/develop through their experiences with other weird characters. Both shows as well have very summery vibes to them through art style, OST, overall production  
report Recommended by Short_Circut
Both anime have protagonists that are confused about what they really want to do in life. Around them are all these people that are pursuing what they want to do (and excelling at them), while the protagonists feel frustrated about not even having a true goal. Both protagonists also live in an environment they don't really belong to, and as a result are surrounded by a weird and rowdy group of people. Ganbare Hachiken and Sorata!

Both have very similar pacing and atmosphere, as well as a mix of drama and comedy.Both are also very enjoyable explorations of different lifestyles. Bakuman is a telling and entertaining look at being a Mangaka, while Gin no Saji explores farm life.

The main character (both voiced by Ryohei Kimura) attends school in a unfamiliar setting and gradually adjusts to it through the people around him. Both don't know exactly what they want to do in the future but have expectations from their families. Both quickly develop a crush on the girl who is sweet and caring to him and a one-sided rivalry with the girl's childhood friend. Both series are about finding your passion and a sense of belonging; Silver Spoon through agriculture, Sakamichi no Apollon through jazz.

everything aside i love how both shows the values of eater and being eaten ....a hunter and it prey which it combines very nicely

Both MCs doesn't know what to do with their life and future. They both wanted to escape their homes for similiar reasons. Both deals with depression though Silver spoon is on the lighter side and 3-gatsu does it in "show not tell" way. They're both very funny. Silver spoon has more comedy while 3-gatsu has more sweet moments that will give you diabetes. They're both incredible and deals with kind of the same things in different ways.

Both series focus on teenage boy/girl who for some reason has to move out of the city and completly change his/her environment. In both main characters learn the taste of hard work and try to find their own dream. Both are very down to earth series, with no supernatural elements only very nice slice of life with a little bit of comedy

Gin no Saji's protagonist, Hachiken Yugo, is the voice of Yuki from Kimi to Boku, and so the comedic timing feels very similar. Slice of life anime in very different ways, but both so endearing. They explore the uncertainty and joy of high school life, with Gin no Saji emphasising what it means to search for a dream. Very funny and very sweet.

Both these shows have a similar countryside atmosphere and are very relaxing to watch 
report Recommended by Necromaru
Silver Spoon is more down-to-earth while the Tatami Galaxy is wilder and features more magical realism elements, but both are essentially about come-of-age, what it means to get vulnerable and brave on your journey to self-discovery and the countless possibilities that life has to offer.

Hibike! Euphonium is just like Gin no Saji but with instruments. Both shows focus on arguments like expectations from your family and pursuing your dreams. 
report Recommended by Odiurd
These shows take place in a school setting but are grossly different from the typical slice of life shows that are set in a school in terms of the theme of the story. The usual school-set shows are usually light hearted in nature and typically revolve around the romance or the mischiefs of the main cast but in these two shows present scenarios that break away from the usual – most notable would be the absence of a beach episode and the focus on the characterization of the cast instead of just showing their day-to-day shenanigans.

The story involve similar MC to a new enviroment by accident, the moral of how the caracter adapt to the new situation and also new people is I think similar, but still to be expected this is my first impression about the first episode of Sakura quest

Both protagonist move from a city to attain new school, and the comedy really feel the same , the way protagonist react to other and slowly make a bond to each other, i really recommend watching gin no saji (silver spoon) if u like this anime

Both anime deal with some real-life facts and applications and share a good humor. as for Dr stone it's like a chemistry science class however gin no saji is a collection of farming and animal biology lessons.

Similar humor and skillful writing that makes the character drama within each show very investment-worthy.

1) Both MC move to a new place to find something new. Usa wants to live alone by himself and Hachiken wants to escape from the pressure of his family while finding what it's like to live in countryside. 2) Both MC meet their heroine in their new place, eventhough those two have different personality. 3) Has the same genre, Slice of Life. Bokura wa Minna Kawaisou tells a lot about daily house activity and its member's life, and Gin no Saji has daily life of a countryside as their story.

Both shows offer a relaxing slice of life vibe while offering relatable characters (if you can ignore the fact that Ansatsu Kyoushitsu has a yellow octopus admist it all). Plus each show uses their medium (farming or assassination) to develop their characters while tackling real world issues on top of having large amounts of humor. I'd say the main difference between these shows is that Gin no Saji might not be for everyone (dealing with animal birth/death) while Ansatsu Kyoushitsu is more "accessible".

Whislt both trully deal with very different subjects, since one is a agriculture slice-of-life and the other is a seinen action, both are similar in a way: -None of the characters are special, but they are very likable, you will sympathize with everyone. -Have golden character interactions you probably never saw in any other media. -Are divided in mini-storys/Is episodic. This can be bad when the anime doesnt know what direction it should take, but in this case; all are interesting and meaningful. Never letting you think you could skip some episodes for the sake of finishing the anime. I would recommend stop watching BL after the first season,  read more

the given anime above talks about the quality of ingredients and food to be prepared in the table, and provide some helpful information about the product. chuuka ichiban is more on different kind of dishes, while silver spoon is focusing on the process on farming until it cook.

Both series take place in the countryside of Hokkaido, where the protagonists moved from the big city. In both series farming activities start to form a part of the daily life of the protagonists, to which they get used to. Both Gin no Saji as well as Figure 17 are growing of age stories, in which the protagonist's character develops and also their relations to other people. If you would like to see protagonists growing up in a rural environment, both series may be for you.

The protags and/or MCs both start off as weak, undetermined, and lacking individuals but learn through experience and friendship what it means to become strong and better person. Both anime make you feel like accomplishing more with your life and reflect on your past and predict the outlook of your future. Also both anime will make you laugh your ass off and cry.

The same creator: Hiromu Arakawa. From character design and humor too. Gin no Saji is a slice of life while FMA/B is action oriented series.

Similar concept dealing with agriculture. You learn how things are processed. While in Spice and Wolf you learn about merchant trading and economical issues.

Rail Wars really reminds me of Gin of Saji because of the way they explain the process of the career. It also revolves around friendship and a slight romance. Gin no Saji ended up being a great anime despite it's about farming. Rail Wars also gives that vibe.

Both heartwarming anime with baseball in it. Altough Gin no Saji has baseball as a side story. These two share a similar feel so if you liked one you could give another one a try as well.

Both protagonists are really similar. They move into a new field that they are not used to, and they learn and help out all their peers each episode. Both anime also have some nice, relaxing openings in my opinion. 
report Recommended by UnfortunateLefty
I believe that both of these anime are similar in that both of them deal with schools that focus in something, Agricultural school in Gin no Saji and a Music college in Nodame Cantable. In those schools we are able to learn not only more about what they working with but we also learn more about the characters and people with in them as they go about life.

These shows are very similar, despite being worlds apart in terms of plot. Although 'Kemono no Souja Erin's based around politics, warfare and is a fantasy, whilst 'Silver Spoon' is solely on farming and everything around it as a slice of life, what makes them tie together the most is the theme of animals. The two shows focus (not necessarily primary, but still) on the protagonist, plus the cast and even humanity, and their connections with animals and the purpose of them to us humans. People have the intelligence and power practically over the world, so the animals are under control, or of usage, for us.  read more

If you liked the slice of life elements of Hataraku Maou-Sama you'll like Gin no saji. Although they differ in the magic element, Sadao feels similar to Yuugo in the self beating humor, although he is not as shy as Yuugo. They both have a coming of age theme, Yuugo having to just deal with hard decisions in life and sadao having to abandon his past and working, plus some romance in both. It's difficult to compare them explicitly, since they are different genre but they both have a similar feel, as a extremely fun anime that doesn't take itself too seriously but is incredibly  read more

These two shows are both light-hearted comedies where something different happens each week, yet they both have a sensitive feel-good side. Both series have their serious moments, but every episode is ultimately comforting and heartwarming!

Both are lighthearted, slice of life comedies. There is a lot more to Gin no Saji as far as plot and characters, but I think their sense of humor is very similar. But I think if you like Tonari no Seki-kun, you will definitely enjoy Gin no Saji as well.

I see a lot of recommendations for other sports anime but if you get past that superficial layer Haikyuu is much more, and on that deeper level, Gin no Saji is a perfect match -Focus on character development and growth -Realistic -Themes of hard work, redemption, and trust -Very funny and light hearted, while still able to be very emotional and tackle rough issues -Dynamic, thought-out, impactful characters I love Haiykuu because it is not just a sports anime, it a anime about people.

The vibe that both shows give off when eating something delicious made me want to make this recommendation. Amaama to Inazuma is about a teacher who wants to make food for his daughter to enjoy while Gin no Saji is about a boy who goes to a highschool that specializes in farming. Both shows are very different but the sweet, slow paced slice-of-life vibe with some sad moments is really alike.

Both involves the MC who were from out of the frying pan and into the fire kind of situation, except the MC in one anime has a harem and a hot land lady, while the MC from another anime was surrounded by hummmmmm, a bunch semi average classmates and a bunch of weird old folks.

Protagonist leaves behind a more typical life in the city and moves to the countryside. While learning how to farm, they also learn more about themselves and what they want to do with their future.

Biology/animal behaviour references. Silver Spoon is about humans at an agricultural college where as Hataraku Onii-san is about college cats doing part-time work, encountering many other species along the way who all have their quirks. Both have a very wholesome feel.
