Silver Spoon was a manga written by Hiromu Arakawa (most famously known for creating the international sensation known as Fullmetal Alchemist), that surrounds itself around agriculture, farming and personal growth - which does feel already pretty personal knowing Arakawa's background, as she was born and raised around a massive farming background of her own.

Whilst I've always been a city boy, shifting country to country to live in the urban areas where take out for food is easy, and everything is convenient from internet, to meeting up to partake in various kinds of fun activities in places like malls, parks, game centers, etc, I was very read more

Gin no Saji, or Silver Spoon, has a lot going for it even before you read the first page. It's created by Hiromu Arakawa, who's previous work includes the highly popular Fullmetal Alchemist. It should then be assumed that it'll no doubt be another amazing manga right? Fortunately, this is true but it does so on its own merit, resulting in a huge number of sales, the 2012 Manga Taisho award and an anime project despite the small number of chapters released at the time. Who knew a manga about farming could be so interesting and enjoyable?

Gin no Saji has an entertaining yarn to spin: read more

Silver Spoon is great. Evey character is enjoyable and play their role perfectly. The deilver and execution of the story is very well done, as expected from the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist. It really shows how awesome Nature is and how much animals affect our life. Silver Spoon dosen't really have many flaws worth mentioning. The only negative thing I will say about Silver Spoon is that it hasn't yet reached its full potential.

So rather drastic change for Hiromu Arakawa going from Fullmetal Alchemist to Gin no Saji but if you were to consult her wikipedia page you would see that something like this is right up her street.

A story about a boy who moves to the countryside to attend an agricultural high school does seem to fall exactly into the slice of life category but this manga is somewhat different (just like Bakuman).

The surprising mix of technical vocabulary or discussions, ethical issues such as euthanasia and a look at agricultural life from a teenager's perspective give the manga something new alongside the usual slice of life elements read more

A slice of life manga that "takes the ordinary and makes it extraordinary," Gin no Saji manages to make life at an agricultural high school seem (consistently) attractive, humorous, and entertaining. Given the mangaka's track record, I fully expect this series to become a classic, or at least enjoyed by many audiences to come. I love the characters, the setting, the plotting, the narration, the little life lessons Hachiken experiences... It has a light tone but ultimately this series is full of heart.

It's difficult to quantify what exactly makes this series so outstanding, but Arakawa has it, and the awards Silver Spoon has won are read more
