The equestrian club's first riding competition brings them into conflict with the series' first villain, a rival from another school who is just a tad bit more amusing than she is annoying. On top of that stress, our hero is pushing himself way too hard to make the upcoming school festival a success. This educational and humorous series starts to turn up the drama. ...more

It’s the volume full of horses! Enter the wonderful world of jumping competitions and now go look up some on YouTube because horse jumping is fun to watch.

Also, an important note: All you people who overwork yourselves because you can’t say ‘no’, you’re making the rest of us worry!

This series has 15 volumes.

It's been too long since I got my hands on a volume of Silver Spoon and read and just enjoyed Hiromu Arakawa's storytelling. Once again, as always, I do recommend anyone potentially interested in this title to find and try the anime first; it was on Netflix for a time and while I don't think it's on there any more, I can confirm that at this point in time it IS on Crunchyroll. While I'm presently enjoying the manga more than I did the anime, I still think the anime is a good digest form of the s ...more

This volume hints to likely the heaviest and most significant challenge hachiken ever faced.
The horseback riding tournament was probably One of my favorite moments , It got the perfect sports shonen setting (without being one) .

Hachiken’s first equestrian competition is finally here, yet still amidst the planning for the Fall Festival. Hachiken likens the pressure of competing to taking a difficult exam, and this helps him focus on riding and jumping with Chestnut, his horse. Ayame Minamikujou, a competitive girl from Mikage’s middle school, is also competing in the equestrian match, and her overconfidence doesn’t hide the fact that she doesn’t understand the rules of the competition. She swears to be the rival of Mika ...more

Hachiken experiences his first horse riding competition, and then preparations for the school festival get extra intense, but he works up the guts to ask Mikage to go somewhere fun for a break and neither of them is sure it is a date or not. And the amount of responsibility he's taken on may be a bit much.

Wow, Hachiken's self-named rival in the horse show is something else. She's so intense it gets laughable (especially because she is awful and doesn't know what she's talking about). Hachiken mi

All the pretty horses! OMG! Whomever was responsible for backgrounds in this volume deserves a raise. There was so much detail packed into many of the panels; everything came to gorgeous life. The equestrian club’s first competition dominated this volume. There is great tension and suspense built for our favorite Ezo Ag riders along with great moments of humor. The introduction of Mikage’s (and Hachiken’s) egomaniacal competition rival was a bright spot. And, the return of Hachiken’s big bro als ...more

I love it when the manga introduces a new character because we get to see, yet again, Arakawa's exceptional character designs and development in how they're created. The new character is this 90s heiress-type who would do a dignity laugh (google dignity laugh if you're unfamiliar, it's better to see than describe), who is something else entirely. And I'll be honest, I didn't know if I'd love a farm manga as I do, but I absolutely love this manga. ...more

I was hoping the horse stuff would cool, but looks like it's just getting warmed up. Looking forward to the next volume. This one left off on a real cliffhanger. Good dating advice shared in the girls' dorm: don't just look at a potential match as what *you* have to offer, but what what can you gain from the boy as well. ...more

A step into the horse racing world. I remember that phase well. Good times. I don't know much about it (except for the romanticized TV show stuff) but it was good. The pacing was great.

This ending was pretty shocking.

I truly adore Arakawa's writing and art style and am constantly blown away by the fact that she can write both high stakes fantasy and a very comforting slice of life. One day I will have the physical copies of these and not just the digitals. ...more

This was a good volume. I binge read the series however so I am not sure which events were specifically tied to this volume. See first few volumes and volume 7 for my general feelings on the series so far.

Nobody is more surprised than me that one of my favorite comic series is about daily life at an agricultural voc. tech school.

This volume has some laugh out loud moments as the result of Hachiken's first horse show and, as always, Arakakawa plays around with tropes so you get stories that are fresh and familiar at the same time..

Hachiken plus horses = win!
Series Review:
Great fun, great characters, great art, what's not to love?
I really enjoy stories set in rural Japan and I do love the emphasis on agriculture as well as the thoughts on eating animals/meat. Oh, and there is a lot of food appreciation in this, it's utterly lovely though it did make me hungry quite a bit. It's a great slice of life manga that includes some unusual topics and handles them wonderfully approachable and in fun ways.
The only thing that I didn't quite enjoy as much was th
