I haven't read the manga, but I like the mangaka. :)

I enjoyed the first ep. Obviously this won't be for everyone since it covers farm life, but having spent a fair amount of time on farms, I thought they episode did a good job. They Moyshimon parallel is pretty evident, but I think it's safe to say this will be taking a different route than that show.

The MC reminds me of a guy I went to school with. He never saw a cow in his life. His initial reaction was priceless.

Farming is hard, thankless, and I'm glad there are people still willing to do it.

Indeed it is hard! Every once in a while, dreaming because my daughter would like a horse (don't they all???!!! LOL) we think about checking the price of hobby farms (and our lottery tickets to see if we won... we haven't) but last week my son went to a summer camp at a farm and when picking him up my wife smelled the piles of manure and said, "Maybe not!" LOL

But it was good to be touching a tractor and seeing and even, yes, smelling the farm animals while picking him up and dropping him off there.

My brother lives in the big city and when I say I don't live out in the country he laughs and asks, "How close is the nearest cow?" At the time my answer was "at the end of the street" but sadly all the farms right around here are being sold and turned into big box stores. So the nearest cow is a bit farther away now but is still quite close and I smell them every day on my drive into work through the countryside which is nice.

The nearest cow is less than 1/4 mile away. The nearest horse is even closer. I'm not in the country, but I'm pretty darn close. And the in-laws are farmers. My folks raised their own chickens and rabbits, so I've always known where food comes from.

And on that note, I think the Arakawa sensei is reusing her beloved theme of "one is all and all is one" here, but in a more realistic setting.

Maybe it's just me, but I felt a little bit bored with the 1st ep. The premise of the show, too, makes me wonder if I'll really enjoy this, but I think I'll keep watching since it's not the kind of anime I see everyday, though.

On another note: I haven't done a whole lot of real farming (as far as growing crops goes), but I've taken care of chickens, a rooster and goats before. Even scooped up the chickens' caca dozens of times (and had it smeared on my hands, lol ) And they certainly do stink. xD The worst is goat smell. All they have to do is rub their body on your clothes, and your clothes are done for, as they are gonna reek until u wash them (at least that's been my experience, lol).

I gave this anime a shot seeing as it is from the mangaka of FMA however after I read the synopsis I really still was not expecting much, So I am really glad to say that I was very surprised with how much I ended up enjoying that first episode. I think I ended up watching it 3 times haha! Looks like this will be a really fun anime for the season

Its one of those that could be made into a live action fairly easily without loosing much, though I dont think it would work especially well. Unlike tokyo magnitude 8.0, seriously live action that shit already!

Suiko - You were bored!!?!!~
I was laughing myself into a real mess! It was really embarassing because Sailorbee kept staring at me..... T T

mipegg - How well do you think this would do as live action? I think it'd be tough!!! It could be cute with all the animals though

Something tells me it'll be adapted into a contest since we are dealing with the Princess of Contests!

Contest-Hime, if I'm right about that, can I get a prize? xP

First episode seems really promising. The whole egg part got me busting a gut haha!

I can see that there's going to be a lot of change with the main character.
