That one pretty much wrote itself LOL

Interesting trivia, horse racing is one of the few forms of legal gambling allowed in Japan, the others being bicycle, speedboat and motorcycle racing. Plus pachinko and lotteries.

That was an odd horse race though...

So is this a regular kind of slice of life, or is it a crazy kind?

Slice of Life encounters of the agricultural kind. If you like nipples there were lots in episode 3... just sow nipples LOL And lots of discussion of sow nipples too LOL Last week it was cow teats... Lots of Farmservice! Harty, har har...

But really, the slice of life is good too, I like the characters. It has some comedy, relaxing moments, good life quotes.


The cow bit intriques me, so I'll check it out xD

I think I was as disappointed as Hachiken that it wasn't a date! This episode wasn't as interesting for me though it had a few good moments. I was hoping for a chance at romance in the Golden Week with most of them having gone home but it seems romance isn't really part of the genre for this show. Or am I wrong? I am not reading the manga obviously so if you have a yea/nea romance spoiler, please let me know :)


THE ROM IS COMING!

I just thought this was funny for some reason, but I was re-watching one of the episodes and I noticed Mikage only has 3 eyelashes, lol. It just really reminded me of another character in Chihayafuru who made an emphasis at one point in having that same number of lashes.

Episode 4

Damn, I want to ride and operate one of those tractors someday.

Episode was decent but damn, I got hungry just looking @ that pixel pizza. The toppings, the cheese, the ingredients. *drools*. I'll just pick up a phone and call Pizza Hut now.


YUM

I just watched episode 4 and towards the end it paused to buffer.

This was the scene it paused on.




I can't even look at this without laughing now. It just happened so suddenly that I nearly choked and got water all over my desk LOL.

That aside I'm so happy with this anime. I know nothing about agriculture and that doesn't matter because neither does Hachiken, so I don't have to feel bad about what they're talking about going over my head. I'm so glad this show didn't disappoint, it's the highlight of my week so far among the Summer titles.

Gahhh this show is so excellently done that I don't know what to do with myself. (EDIT: Not that I would expect anything less from the author of FMA). I guess my thoughts on episode 4 are as such.

1. Why is Hachiken using INTERNET EXPLORER??? He should be smart enough to at least use Firefox...

2. As someone who knows real-life farm people, the scene with the guy gushing over the tractor's specs was hilarious. It's so true.

3. Finally, am I the only one who gets a huge kick out of the American country influences in the OP and ED? For some reason, hearing a bit of a country guitar twang at the beginning of the show just cracks me up.

4. I really like the this idea of Hachiken working out what kind of person he wants to be. There's a lot to be said for working with your hands and being outside. It brings a lot of clarity.

Ep 4

Hmm, out of all the eps, I enjoyed this one the most - I actually wasn't all too bored with this one like the rest of them! Why? Cuz it has to do with pizza!! And Hachiken's reaction when he first tastes the pizza was the best! Someone made a great video comment about it, too, that said, "who put the Joker's laughing gas in the pizza?" xD

I don't really get a huge kick out of it myself, but I do feel that's its very appropriate for this kind of show, though. ^__^ Imagine if they played some heavy metal or rap in the OP or ED, LOL.
