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.
There is a lighthearted mood present in both series of Moyashimon and Gin no Saji. Then, there's the school life setting along with the characters and themes. (involving agriculture)
In Moyashimon, there is the addition of supernatural themes inserted in. However, both series follows a format of agricultural style in terms of its themes. There is also lighthearted comedy as well.
Stories take part in agricultural schools. While these shows focus on different sides of agriculture, and Moyashimon has a bit of a supernatural element to it, the characters share similar traits and the comedy on each show is similar.
Both shows are slice-of-life stories that focus on agricultural schools, and the life of the characters who go there. They both have quirky characters, and comedic moments.
Their main differences is that Gin no Saji focuses more on food while Moyashimon focuses more on science.
Both series deal with agricultural schools, and has this sense of real life. The subtle humor makes series enjoyable. Characters interactions are interesting and very down to earth. Very easy and fun to watch.
While Moyashimon takes place following an agricultural student, unlike in Silver Spoon, it is, for the most part, not so much about farming. It is more so about the germs and microorganisms that help farmers everyday and occasionally hurt people. However, it is not too terribly serious, maintaining the same sort of comedy as Silver Spoon.
There are only a select few people who can see the small creatures that are always there but most people can't see. Both animes are somewhat light hearted and have an earthy feel... if that makes sense.
Both stories are about "other forms" of life, Mushi in Mushishi and Microbes in Moyashimon.. We are invited to those beautiful world, exploring it, enjoying it and we can study many things from those stories..
There is a different where Mushishi is more of drama, Moyashimon more oriented at comedy.. Both are great stories ! but I think Moyashimon is little underrated here..
Two rare gems in the anime world, these two series are often overlooked in terms of their qualities. Let's break this down and check out their similarities and why they are likeable:
Both series involves a main character who can see what others cannot. Talk about uniqueness and having that special gift/curse. (however you look at it)
Both series have a bizarre yet entertaining environmental feeling to them that makes the series likable.
While both series have different genres, they both involves supernatural themes and deserves some more attention that they should be.
If you liked Mushi-shi, then this would be an anime you would also enjoy.
Both have a same theme in discovering the value of life.
Both have similar organisms as part of the plot: mushi in Mushi-shi and microbes in Moyashimon.
Mushi-shi is more serious and more focused on mythical while Moyashimon is full of comedy as well as focus in science.
Both are light-hearted and very refreshing to watch!
The main characters in both shows are witty and sarcastic and have unique communications with tiny, cute creatures. A similar dark humor is frequently used in the two series that appeals to a more mature audience. Both shows also have clear morals about society.
A same general feel occurs between the two. The main character of each shares a style of narrating with wit and sarcasm. The most prevalent relation of all, however, has to be the small creatures that are in both. The fairies and microbes are for the most part happy little creatures.
Both are quirky shows that deal with small beings and their interaction with humans. In Moyashimon, microbes are perceived way bigger than their real-life size, making them about the size of fairies. Both have a really unique kind of humour.
Plot wish, these two shows have pretty much nothing in common. Though essentially, both shows are pretty much similar, comedy wise.
Both are very easy going and slow animes, and both have a very unique, slice of life, sort of cynical humor.
It is most likely that you would enjoy both as a "pass the time" sort of anime, as they are both very relaxing and easy going animes.
Also, both shows concentrate on university students, yet the anime itself does not focus on the studying itself, but more on the daily events of the main characters.
Basically, the humorous situations are pretty alike in both shows, though Genshiken is probably a bit better.
- They live in a university, where a group of university students based on their life in Microbes (Moyahimon) and Manga-Anime (Genshiken)
- One of the main girls, is the strongest character, at the beginning does not get along with everyone.
- Where the protagonist is getting to know more about the world around him, knowing what he is capable of doing and coping with the future that comes his way.
Both series reflect how friendship and companionship can change people, as there is room for fun and seriousness in making the decisions of your life.
One of the nice things about noitaminA is that it features such a wide variety of series that it can be hard to draw similarities between two of them. Kuragehime and Moyashimon, however, are an example of two that will almost certainly appeal to the same groups.
Both are jousei series with a slice-of-life element, but not purely that; they also include comedy, drama, and a touch of romance. They both center around a group of (mostly) young adults who are somewhat offbeat, but also surprisingly complicated and interesting when the series calls for it. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, they both include elements of gender-bending that are more inspired by reality than the average series. read more
Tsukimi's relationship with jellyfish (particularly Clara) reminds me of Sawaki's relationship with microbes. Both are unconventional comedies about really ordinary life, with some odd twist. Lots of interesting characters.
Both series are similar in story structure and tone.
Each portray tales within a unique industry, baking in "Yakitate! Japan" and agriculture in "Moyashimon." Both series' protagonist holds a unique talent that gives the story a fantastical edge; Azuma's solar hands help him bake, and Sawaki can see bacteria and organisms too small for the human eye.
Also, both stories play out in a similar charming and quirky manner. They really delve into the details of these characters' crafts. Whether it's creating a new kind of bread, brewing sake, or collecting fermented foods, it is truly entertaining to watch these characters' lives and exuberence for their work.  read more
These anime show the character having an ability different from other people. In Moyashimon, it is the ability to see microorganisms, and in Yakitake, the boy has the ability to bake different kinds of bread with just his talent.
So you wanna watch anime and learn biology at the same time? Welcome. While in Hataraku Saibou we have actual cells living and working inside the human body, in Moyashimon we have a protagonist who can see bacteria. Although the settings aren't the same, both feature biology and microorganisms as important/main characters in the series. And, yes, you will feel attached to them.
Something about the presentation of Dennou Coil reminds me of Moyashimon. The soundtrack is very similar in both shows, and both have a similar art style (even though Dennou Coil seems to have better animation).
They also both deal with little cute-looking creatures who run around the world. However, in Moyashimon, only the main character can see these creatures, while in Dennou Coil, it's anybody wearing the glasses.
Dennou Coil is also more focused on cyberspace, while Moyashimon is focused on things happening in the real world, but both shows have their fair share of lighthearted adventure.
Both feature a boy who can see stuff normal people can't see (spirits in xxxHOLiC, microbes in Moyashimon) getting roped into stuff (working for a shop in xxxHOLiC, helping college students find valuable microbes in Moyashimon).
Both are definitely-not-mainstream slice of
life series about poor college students and
their unusual circumstances.If you're willing to accept the general weirdness of either
Moyashimon (germs!) or NieA_7 (aliens), then you'll likely like the other.
Well, I start with saying those two animes are like Day and Night. Both are targeted at different audience, has different tone, narrative style, well almost everything, BUT there is one similarity. That is descriptive educational style of presenting additional information of things occuring in story and that is all. So if you liked that give this one go, otherwise try something else.
These two shows can be summed up in three words: agriculture, school, comedy.
However, while Nourin adds a romance genre, Moyashimon adds a supernatural genre to it's. Both are light-hearted and funny.
This is my first recommendation but I've been thinking about this for while and no one else has thought it. Both give off this really great care free summer anime feel, perfect for watching during sunny summer days =) also both main characters have powers that can see things others can't see. With Yurie its spirits and with Sawaki its the microbes and both things are really cute ^w^ Yup if you liked either one of these series you will like the other, both slow paced, not too heavy going and slice-of-life that give you a warm summery feel =)
I'm kinda surprised nobody has recommended this yet, to tell the truth. I feel like Barakamon is the spiritual sucessor to Moyashimon, and the name is only the beginning of similarities.
Both stories are "slice of life" of sorts, that happen in rural places, involving young adults. While in Barakamon the main character moves from the city to the countryside, so to speak, in Moyashimon the character moves from the countryside to the city. Both rely heavily on comedy, and the comedy is similar - although Moyashimon is a bit more sexualized than Barakamon - since both make fun of everyday ocurrences with a bit of exaggeration and parodyzing. Also, in Moyashimon, there's a guy who can see bacteriae, so it's more into the fantasy side of things than Barakamon. Either way, both are nice slice-of-life series that are sure to lighten your mood. read more
Arjuna has a drama tone and Moyashimon a comedy tone. Both put emphasis on alternative practices and have an educated view on bacteria and nature. basically if you liked moyashimon and you re receptive to ecological messages, then you want to watch arjuna. on the other hand if you liked arjuna then you want to watch moyashimon because its pretty much the only anime that comes close to it.
