Farming and Finding Your Place

by -

I loved the anime but for a long time lamented that the manga wasn't getting localized in the USA. Now that it is, I finally got the chance to read it and it's fantastic. It's funny yet emotional, and you get to see that start here. Highly recommend to fans of more slice of life dramas.

A manure shoveling good time!

How does one go from creating one of the most popular fantasy manga series in Fullmetal Alchemist to a slice-of-life, high school comedy! It is a surprising change of direction, but it's not surprising how good it is.

Yuugo Hachiken arrives at Ooezo Agricultural High School with a full bag of preconceptions. Expectations of academic superiority over who he sees as a bunch of country bumpkins, are turned on their head. He finds he is unable to top any one subject while surprising his cohorts with his overall competency for someone unused to life on a farm. Hachiken also has to reckon with the intense physical demands of the practical application of farming and develops a new respect for his fellows.

Hiromu Arakawa's art is exceptional. In particular, her illustrations of animals leap to life on the page. While most of the illustrations are understandably subdued, the plow horse race was every bit as exciting as any of Ed Elric's battles. Recommended!

Why can't I give it 6 stars?

by

It's not often that I come across a manga with such an exquisite story that I am so vigorously compelled to purchase the physical copies -- for the many re-reads to come. The story is so well written, with a strong cast of characters, funny and relatable moments, and beautiful visuals, that it makes you want to experience the farm life yourself. You don't have to have an interest in agriculture to enjoy this, but you'll probably develop one after reading it. I strongly, strongly urge you to take a chance with this series.

You can read this one til the cows come home!

This is a fantastic series. For those of you who are fans of Fullmetal Alchemist, this is not that series, however you should still practice equivalent exchange and buy this one anyway because it is honestly really good.

The main character decides to attend a high school in the country because he thinks it’ll be easy for him to rocket to the top of his graduating class. However he soon discovers that it isn’t that easy, and hilarity ensues. All of the characters in this series are well written, and it is an enjoyable read overall. Definitely check this out if you’re looking for a slice of life manga that is equal parts funny and emotional.

I received this item in near perfect condition. Mine has some light peeling/cracking on the cover, near the top corners of the spine. However, I have seen this on several different books in various stores. It is barely noticeable on mine. I am happy to display this one on my bookshelf!
