Yuugo Hachiken is studious, hard-working, and tired of trying to live up to expectations he just cannot meet. With the ushering in of a brand new school year, he decides to enrol in Ooezo Agricultural High School, a boarding school located in the Hokkaido countryside, as a means to escape from the stress brought upon by his parents. Initially convinced that he would do well at this institution, Hachiken is quickly proven wrong by his talented classmates, individuals who have been living on farms their entire lives and know just about everything when it comes to food, vegetables, and even the physiology of livestock! Whether it be waking up at five in the morning for strenuous labor or to take care of farm animals, Hachiken is a complete amateur when it comes to the harsh agricultural life. Gin no Saji follows the comedic story of a young student as he tries to fit into a completely new environment, meeting many unique people along the way. As he struggles to appreciate his surroundings, Hachiken hopes to discover his dreams, so that he may lead a fulfilling life on his own terms.

Silver Spoon is by the same mangaka as FMA. She’s from Hokkaido where it’s set and grew up around farms. It’s a great story with good feels!


A city kid going to learn about farm life. OMG this was awesome I have not had that much fun in a long time


A slice of life that truly exemplifies the genre. Many shows claim to be slice of life’s, but fail. Silver Spoon is true to the genre.


A fun peek into farm life. By Hiromu Arakawa, who spent her childhood on a farm herself, Silver Spoon is one of the best SoL anime around.


An anime about a farming school!? That sounds terrible. In fact it was wonderful. Glad I gave it a chance. Hachiken is a great character.


A very realistic show that is also very peaceful to watch.


Anime about a naive farmer who doesn’t know how a farm works.
