Review for the first two volumes.

I have watched the Moyashimon anime (both the first and second season) some time ago. And while browsing a book market I came upon the second volume. So I decided to read the manga.
However, I won't be able to read further then book 2. Del Rey stopped this one after book 2, and no one else has the volumes. :(
Here is to hoping Kodansha or Yen Press will re-license it and release it again.

The manga was really fun, I loved seeing Tadayasu talk to the microbes/germs,

A manga with cute bacteria that you can never see with your naked eye. Hahaha

what a completely strange book! I love it's clarification as an agricultural school germ manga. All of the literally yeasty facts went over my head, but the story line was fun in a weird way. I hope to read the rest of the series.
日吉酒店、菌オバケ、武藤葵(むとう あおい)登場、UFO研、蛍の休学、宏岡亜矢(ひろおか あや)登場、春祭。ナウシカのコスプレ面白すぎ!

Breaks my heart that Del Rey/Kodansha stopped publishing Moyashimon in English after this volume, because it is so good. Really! If more people bought the first two tanks, do you think Kodansha USA would reconsider not publishing them? Even the manga-ka wanted it to do good in the States! This is a fun, vibrant, unique manga that combines science, humor, and the pursuit of romance into one flavorful read. Plus, A+ Nausicaa references at the beginning!

It's a shame that this series was canceled after only two books. Maybe it's too unique? Agriculture students, one of whom can see bacteria, learn the many (MANY) uses and bits of trivia surrounding microbiotics. The series reads part science lecture, part Animal House. Here's a tidbit to take with you: breathing masks do not block influenza. However, the humidity of your breath on the mask slows down invading influenza.

An equally excellent second volume. The storyline covers a college weekend festival. There are still microbes and brewing and learning, but the focus is more on college life and growing up.

This is the last volume in English. Just FYI.

Fun way to learn a little bit about sake-making, fermentation, bacteria and germs. The animated tv series is even more entertaining.
