Yup, they're all human ;o
Maybe Tamako is not with that inhuman strength

Final episode :(
Damn, I'm going to miss this show...

Decent ending I guess. I'm glad that Mikage is following her dreams of course. Glad to see everyone again of course and enjoying what they're doing. I hope for a season 3 tbh. Hoping.

Good episode. Hachiken's mom showing up to see how he is doing. Nice for Hachiken and his mom to spend some time to hash things out. I'm gonna miss watching this show. I'm on board if there was a nother season of this.

Could have been better, the ending at least. I'm really afraid that this isn't gonna get new seasons.....

I'm really pleased by Hachiken finally gettin a word or 2 to tell to his father.

This season was amazing. Really sad that it's already over. I hope we get a third season for more Hachiken x Mikage.

Good episode. Hachiken talking back to his father on his beliefs really showed he isn't the same kid that left the city anymore. Talking to his old classmates like nothing, and really having a conversation with his mother and telling her he wasn't who he was back then really highlighted the episode. I hope we get a season 3. Would love to continue on. Can someone tell me what chapter this left off on in the manga please? Thanks In advance!

Beautiful! Just Absolutely Beautiful :*)

I was smiling throughout the ending (Loved the full version BTW)
Really gonna miss this series. A-1 adapted it perfectly. Hope S3 won't take long >.<

The beginning with Hachiken meeting some of his classmates and his interactions with them noticing how much he changed was really nice. Lol'd at their reactions to Riding horses, driving machine and teaching a girl XD

His meeting with his parents was intense as hell. His dad is still as tough as usual but nice development with how he talked back to him. Good Job Hachi! U've grown so much :D

Lol at his reaction to how bad his brother's handwriting is XD

Tamako owned Hachiken there XD "Hit me" BAM no mercy XD And same with Maron XDXDXD

Really loving Hachiken's mom. She' do I say it....cute? Weird but yeah she's a really cute mother :3...Loved her reactions to the principle XD And how everything tastes ^^

Hachicken apologizing to her for the yogurt tasting good was so hilarious XDXDXD
And Shutting Tokiwa up hahahaha lol

Loved the party. The way these guys just spontaneously start parties is always so much fun XD

Lol'd at the cockblock with spices when Hachiken was talking to Mikage XD Dat Jealousy XD

And Hachiken's declaration to his mom at the end was awesome. "I'm no longer the same" AWESOME :D Seems like he was called chicken (Coward) quite a lot in his school days though :P

9.5 /10 for me :D

Well, as usual, the show was too fast. They cut the whole discussion between Hachi's old classmates (was little but was here), they cut the reunion'beginning between Hachi and his parents AND, the worse in my mind, they TOTALLY skipped when Hachimom met her son's friends and, MIKAGE's hilarious reaction when she met her almost mother's boyfriend. Kinda disapointing...
But I was happy to see they did'nt forget when Yoshino decide to study the possibility of going in France (you're always happy when your favorite manga /anime talks about your own country). However, the moment where Hachi got his revenge against Tokiwa and his yogurt was funnier in the manga, like when the boys cut Hachiken in his love declaration to Mikage.
So, I was sad for all this stuff until the 3 or 4 minuts of the end. THAT was just beautiful. So awww... And, even if the anime is not perfect, I really hope they going to continue the winter arc, which is just amazing and so funny (and where Shingo appears more often - a bit). And a new character... So, people who love that anime, if you still don't, read the manga, it is wonderful !

Damn it was only when the end credits came on did I fully realise that this was the end of the season and most likely for good... Its been a great ride and I'm so glad I gave it a chance because I nearly missed a gem of a show. Overall 8/10

Such a beautiful final episode.

The last part with Komaba was pretty sad, he can't be with his friends.

Hoping that S3 will come soon.

I'm amazed how much Hachiken grew during this series. I will really miss this anime. Hopefully we don't need to wait 3rd season long time. This was one of my favorites series this season, 9/10 for me^^

The egg dropping reminded of the first season's episode 1.
Really nice to see all of Hachiken's efforts that changed him has come to bear fruit in the last few episodes.

Waiting for more Hachiken and Mikage moments!

Great show and I want to see more! Based on the manga sales stats ( #16 this week but almost 800k in sales for the latest volume), it looks like the anime has been helping out so I think chances might be good for a third season. Decisions to continue the series are no longer made just on the BD/DVD sales, and the bump in manga/LN sales caused by a successful anime is an increasingly important factor.

Another great season, I really love the atmosphere in this anime. I kinda feel trolled about the snow on the roads announcement last episode, but it's better not to end with a sour taste so it's all good.

I hope it sells well enough to animate more of this.

Great series overall, it made me read the manga.

Got goosebumps. 9/10

Now off to agonize over if I should spoil myself with the manga or patiently wait a year or two for the possible 3rd season.

So my favourite and best anime of the season ends... :'( Thursdays won't be the same! I really liked how they ended up. Not too much drama, yet still quite intense and heart wrenching. Very solid 8 like season one!

Season three where?

That was a beautiful ending ;_; so touching to see how much Hachiken has grown and changed. I cried a little when Hachiken's mother looked at Hachiken with his friends, and how he was getting angry or was laughing, something she probably never saw at home. Although they did skip over lots of scenes, I still really liked it. Gin no Saji needs a third season!

You know, they could not have ended this show any better. If we don't see a third season, they succeeded in writing a relatively conclusive ending to this one. That, and there's always the manga.

The first season was excellent (And I still really didn't notice anything if A-1 pictures screwed it up to be honest), but the second season was even better. I thought the comedy was a notch better than last season and the drama definitely covered more bases and was of course quite relatable. It's also pretty impressive that Arakawa can create one of the best shounens of all time and one of the best slice-of-life of all time, but she did it. I gave the first season an 8/10 and I'll give the second season a 9/10 for an 8.5/10 which (Because the last four episodes have been so fantastic) will round to a 9/10.

Yugo and Mikage's character development was remarkable throughout the whole season. The secondary characters were also interesting. It's been a great ride since last summer... Unfortunately, the ending felt incomplete and many questions were left unanswered, so I hope there is a season 3 for this. like most of you. In the meantime, I'll start reading the manga

Top show of the season for me. I'm glad I picked this series up in the first place.

And the manga is still ongoing so I'm EXPECTING a third season hopefully this year.

Amazing. Absolutely amazing.

Great step-up from last season. Of course, I loved last season fully, but we didn't see enough development for Hachiken - something that the second season expanded on.

Also, I'm happy with the anime's boldness in actually pursuing Hachiken and Mikage's relationship. Most slice-of-life, episodic anime stay pretty "meh" in creating actual relationships, but here we see drama and hardships.

It's a refreshing balance of drama and comedy and romance.

I really love Silver Spoon. I honestly don't know what to do without it. It's made me interested in the agricultural business, just as Space Brothers made me more interested in space and actual astronaut training.
(Too many meaningful slice-of-life are ending this season ;___;)

I love you, Hachiken, Mikage, Tokiwa and the rest of the gang. You all mean so much to me. I NEED TO KNOW THE REST OF YOUR GUYS' STORY.

Ahh, I'll just be daydreaming about their futures in school for the next two weeks. Maybe I'll even write a fanfic. >.> Or, I'll go read the manga, but I still want to wait for the anime...

I think it'll come back though. It's at least mildly popular, isn't it? I hope the next season will be within the coming year. Meh.
Well, at least I have Mushishi to look forward too. xP

This season gets a 9/10 from me. It was great.

It was nice to see Hachiken finally patching things up with his mom. He changed a lot throughout the whole series.

His dad's still a douche though. He has such a sweet wife and he doesn't even compliment her cooking.

Overall, a satisfying ending to a great season. 3rd season, when?!

Very good season. I love Hachiken's development. His relationship with Mikage was also nice to see. I think this season was superior to the first one both in the humor and the drama parts.


Also, I claimed Yoshino. I will give her some french lesson so she can fulfill her dream!

Didn't expect this to get a live-action movie. If it's popular enough for that, it'd be nonsense that a season 3 wouldn't be possible. They still have so much left unanswered: Will Aki get into college? Will Hachicken find something he really wants to do in the future? Will Komaba's family pull through the hard times? Will Hachicken's dad ever knowledge his only son left that didn't drop-out and run away (in other words, stop being a prick)? Or the million dollar question, will AkixYuugo be official instead of a mere ship!?

Man, sad to see this end(for now?) I remember not liking the first episode of the first season and nearly dropping it. Thank god I gave it another episode, as it's now jumped up my list of favorites. You just don't see a slice of life handle real life problems and personal conflicts in a practical, subtle-yet-emotional way, at least not as well as Gin no Saji. Credit that to Arakawa's wonderful writing though.

Everything else that I can praise the show for demands that I give A-1 credit. The way they've handled the transitions from comedy to drama, everything from OST to aesthetics, perfectly complimented the writing style and plot structure. Really impressed with A-1's work with this series. Easily 9/10

Which leaves me conflicted. It seems there's a decent chance for a third season, but you never know. Normally I'd run off and read the manga as quick as possible, but I'd really like to hold out for another season since I have faith in A-1 when it comes to this series.

Disappointing lack of closure, I was hoping that Mikage and Hachiken would at least become a couple.
