According to Mainichi, the number of applicants for admission to Hokkaido Obihiro Agricultural High School Dairy Science Course was 68, up 110% from a year earlier. The high school is the model school of manga "Gin no Saji ~Silver Spoon~". The school principal was pleased that the manga has drawn attention to agricultural schools among many junior high students, especially from outside of Hokkaido prefecture.

Interesting, reminds me of how Hanasaku Iroha doubled tourism on that hot spring.

I've heard only good things about Silver Spoon but reading its synopsis it sounds fairly boring. Guess there has to be more to it, though, looking at the sales numbers.

I suppose this manga isn't based on the 1980s US sitcom Silver Spoons, is it?

Same here. This is what we call a positive influence.

Haha, Hikaru no Go really did make me buy a little go board. Not too easy to learn alone, though.

I'm glad. The world could always use some more farmers and other agricultural stuff. Interesting that the school from Gin no Saji actually exists, though. Wonder how similar it is.

Unlike FMA, Silver Spoon is a Slice of Life story, but it's not anything like the ones that take over the anime industry. It is what Slice of life anime should be.

Hmm. Funny slice of life that's also educational? I thought the synopsis was boring too. But it's a good manga.

Anyways, glad to hear stuff like this. We need to hear it more often. :D

should be is the key word. Almost a thirds of the most popular anime out there are Slice of Life.
A well-known fact about Arakawa-sensei is that she grew up on a dairy farm with her sisters and brother. She is one of those so-called "true farmer." That's why her self-depicted portrait is a cow. In addition, the school in Silver Spoon is also in her hometown, Tokachi Subprefecture in Hokkaido, Japan. It is said in her biography that she went to an agriculture highschool, which let people to believe that Akarawa is indeed an alumnae from Obihiro Agricultural High. If true this manga, and the admission increase was a little homage to her beloved highschool.

Sounds like it's time for me to make a manga where people give money and offerings to me. I guess it's good for the school, of course they get the money even if those students drop out.

Looking forward to the anime, was going to read the manga, but I will wait.

What is that ? LOL
So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.

That depends on what context and what manga you are reffering to, although i understand how you think!

It's really old school, has a real 'classic' feel, it's the kind of manga you think of when you think of Weekly Sunday.

Do you think it will last that long or just another "short-lived idealism" ?
Dunno.... I lived long enough to witness many news like this, and somehow it didn't last long.

I'm pretty sure it wouldn't last more than a couple of years after the manga finishes, at any rate.
