Anime Adaptation Planned for "Silver Spoon" Manga

TV anime planned for agricultural manga

In a bit of welcome, if unsurprising, news Weekly Shonen Sunday continues their roll out of 2013 anime projects with confirmation that Fullmetal Alchemist author Hiromu Arakawa's Silver Spoon is set to become a TV series.



The issue with the announcement goes on sale January 16th.


Hiromu Arakawa drew on her upbringing as a Hokkaido farmer to write Silver Spoon, the story of bright student Yugo Hachiken who schemes to get away from his family by enrolling in an agricultural school that requires students to reside in its dorms, only to find it more work than he had envisioned.


As unlikely as it might sound, the manga has been a smash hit, winning this year's Manga Taishō award and warranting million copy print runs.
