Although there are no climatic scenes in Silver Spoon, it is a very entertaining piece. It is in no way inferior to Arakawa's other work "Fullmetal Alchemist". You learn a lot. Well, at the same time, you get to enjoy yourself. It is definitely a work that should be read.

But it is still quite a great slice of life manga to read. I think a lot of people were hoping for it to be FMA with ed, al, and winrey and it gets a lot of negative attention because it is not about them. People forget it suppose to be a slice of life romance type manga and it does it better then most mangas.

Read this! The animation adds A LOT to the comedy (from the look I guess it was the animator for FMA or was inspired by FMA). The story seems pretty basic, it feels like a kid's show in the sense that you learn something new in every chapter but it is just fun to read.
