Anime Recommendation: Silver Spoon

Fun at the Farm
A common problem with the slice of life genre is the portrayal of overdone cliches and tropes. Like, how many times has anime done the typical lifestyle of a Japanese high school student?

“Silver Spoon” does this niche genre justice by showcasing a world that most city slickers wouldn’t think twice about: life on a farm (school).

Synopsis: Yugo Hachiken decided to escape from the stressful school and home environment in the city by enrolling at Oezo Agricultural High School. Unlike his peers who’ll eventually embark upon an agricultural career, he decides to study there only because he believes it’ll be less competitive academically. Unfamiliar with his new surroundings, he tries his best to adapt to the agricultural world he’d never thought of living in.

You would be surprised how much I have learned from this show about farms and food. At the very least, it is worth a look if slice of life is your cup of tea.

    As someone involved in agriculture, I think this anime is GREAT! It’s a very realistic depiction of many aspects in agriculture and how people who are in agriculture and those who aren’t interact. I have many of the same experiences. I talk about wanting to raise animals to eat and eat eggs my chickens lay and people think I’m crazy. I think they’re strange when they ask questions that to me seem obvious. I may not have a 8-year college degree complete with the knowledge of where Saskatchawan is but I know more about treating illness in animals in more animals than many city vets. I really love this series!
