I love this series. But I’m a farm girl at heart so I guess I’m a little biased.

But the pizza arc is so good. All the students coming together with spare ingredients to make a delightful event that everyone enjoyed. Plus that pizza looked tasty~

Then Hachiken goes to work and Mikage’s farm for the summer, forcing him to face some of the heartless ways farmers have to live their lives in order to make a living. Like butchering wild game or sending the less productive livestock to the slaughter hou
Reading this series just puts me in a good mood. The amount of education on agriculture and related subjects contained here is something that honestly got me stunned, it's never introduced with pretentious manners and it suits the purpose of involving the reader in the overall atmosphere.
Why didn't I start this series sooner?

Having grown up on a farm, this series continues to be a source of nostalgia and amusement as a city kid discovers how hard and complicated the agricultural life can be. I like the balance of education and entertainment.

Hachiken attends an agricultural high school even though he has no interest in pursuing an agricultural career. In this second volume, he discovers an old brick oven, and his classmates beg him to make homemade pizza for them. Hachiken has to find all the right ingredients, and even bribe the teachers to get cheese for a huge pizza party. If he can pull it off, he'll be the most popular guy in school.

This manga is hilarious! The characters are fun and some of them are really silly. Poor Hachiken
Emily Ross
I love how Hachiken is growing as a character. It's such a fun manga to read and I'm really enjoying it. I also really like the various cast of secondary character, who are all being developed as well as Hachiken. It's fun and surprisingly deep. ...more

As I said in my review on the first volume of this manga, in the event you have not yet taken the opportunity to watch the anime for Silver Spoon [Gin no Saji] on Netflix, I cannot stress enough the recommendation that you do so when you have the chance.

Review beneath the spoiler cut.

This so good!!! The humor is spot on. I love it. I’ve been missing this author’s humor. I’m glad I read this one because it was HILARIOUS.

It was also pretty realistic. Cattle raisers have to deal with birth, sickness, and death all the time and this one really pointed that out. (There are 2 butchers and one birthing sequence. Not very graphic.)

The cell reception joke with the tall person was my favorite part!

An unexpectedly fun and feel-good manga about attending an agricultural high school. I love how this doesn't equate good grades and a college education as the true path to success. These high school kids know what they want and they run themselves ragged to make it happen. ...more

Oh my god, that calf birth scene. It reminds me of when I witnessed an alpaca birth and my first thought was, "Miracle of birth, my eye. That shit's disgusting!"

Then all the alpacas in the herd started humming at the new baby and things got weird fast.
Very educational and enlightening. The human drama is excellent too: I really enjoyed the very real depiction of family business and the pressure they bring to the children. The author does not hold back and depicts an accurate portrait of how money and parenting can play in the balance of things...
This series continues to be too good and pure.

I read "Gin no Saji Silver Spoon" this manga is very very interesting. This plot is that the protagonist is a agricultural high school student who is from city. He doesn't have any knowledge of agriculture and dairy farming. But he does his best.

This manga told us the importance of life. I think this is one of the theme. Because there is the scene that they eat pigs they raised.

The author of this manga is Hiromu Arakawa. He also creat "fullmetal Alchemist" she is very good author.

At the end of volume one, the group discover a brick oven, so they spend the beginning of this one fixing it up and use the ingredients from around the farm to make pizza. Hachiken is the only one who has had pizza before, so he is in charge of making it and doing all the work necessary to secure the best ingredients. Then, it’s summer break, and Hachiken has to figure out where he will work for the summer, since he refuses to go home. He goes to work for Mikage on her family farm. One night, he ...more

Hachiken decides to see if he can use the old masonry oven they uncovered in the junk pile at school which balloons into a huge pizza project/event, then Hachiken gets a summer job working for Aki's family as a farm hand and also get's to visit two other classmate's farms (each of which manage theirs a little bit differently).

I liked this one quite a bit. It was so funny to see how the pizza project ballooned and how everyone got involved. (It also seems completely puzzling that pizza would be s

A small side project evolves into a big party and Hachiken becomes a dependable social organizer. He also avoids a return home by taking a summer job. I loved the chapter where Hachiken believed himself to be a popular student when really his peers were looking for cheap, student labor. Too funny! There is great progress in Hachiken’s understanding of the world and his place in it, and I particularly appreciate his realization that there was more to learning than face-in-book studying. The volum ...more

Hachiken works on his friend's farm during break and learns how to butcher.

This series is so fun. Hachiken goes to agricultural school because he thinks it will be easy and learns the hard way that it's the opposite of that. He's a hard worker who hasn't learned how to say no to anyone but he's also super loyal to his friends. In this volume, more harsh realities of farming are shown. Do you cull non-optimal cows immediately, or walk a middle line, or be sentimental and try to keep them all? Who

The first year Dairy Science students discover a brick oven during a clean up project and when Hachiken says it can be used to make pizza, he gets talked into making a pizza. As he goes around getting help with ingredients, repairing the oven, and baking he promises pizza to more and more people. The pizza project highlights what's so great about Ezo Ag--the students are passionate about their work and want to help each other out. The pizza party is a great experience for Hachiken, but it doesn' ...more

So I guess I am not 100% a fan of the artwork, I just have mixed feelings about the people, but I like them and the rest of the artwork enough to continue reading.
The story is good and it felt well paced, I liked how Hachiken dealt with all the new things he encountered and how he is growing as a character.
I liked the new characters introduced as well, and the way this shows how different aspects of the farming industry run (from tiny family farms to big multifamily farms).

I read this book as part of the 2019 HUB Reading Challenge, award winner of great graphic novels and what a great series! Yugo Hachiken is easing into his first year, making friends and learning a lot about cows, horses, and much more at Oezo Agricultural High School! He finds an old oven and together with everyone, students, teachers and more they all collaborate to help Hachiken make pizza. Then when students go on break, Hachiken does not intend to go home and ends of staying at his classmate ...more

It's a little hard to rate this, since I saw the anime first & as it turns out, the anime sticks very, very closely to the manga -- so absolutely nothing in here surprised me in the slightest. But it's very, very good and thought-provoking about our relationship to our food. ...more

Great characterizations. Interesting to see the justifications for factory farming. The idea that overcoming our "sensitivity" to killing other animals makes more sense than just not killing them is bizarre as hell. ...more

The pizza they make in this would be so yummy to eat! I love how it brings together so many of the students and reminds me of how far removed we are in our urban/suburban life from the production of our food.

This volume was the one that pulled me into this series and firmly cemented me as a fan. I really enjoy the quaint folksy sincerity combined with hard straight truths about life that this manga shows. Not really what I originally expected from a series about agriculture and farming.
