Yuugo, Aki and the rest of the gang continue their studies at Ezonoo agricultural high school, handling chickens, grooming cows and learning all about a farm worker’s duties. Change is in the air, as the group is becoming more skilled, and the equestrian club has even asked Yuugo to become the new vice president, much to his dismay! Whether Yuugo and his friends are adopting a stray puppy, watching jumping competitions or learning the intimate ways to check if a cow is pregnant, they’re sure to have a fun time at Ezonoo.
Tadayasu Sawaki and his long-time hometown friend Kei Yuuki are finally away from home and ready to start university. They attend Tokyo's College of Agriculture, and the adventures start from day one! But that is to be expected, as Tadayasu has a special ability that is conducive to adventure and glory, especially in the world of agriculture and biology: the man can see, communicate, and interact with microbes! With ambitious sake-brewing upperclassmen, a sadistic postgraduate, and a clean-freak colleague, things can only become more exciting for the duo!
If you're looking for another calm, lighthearted (and somewhat comedic) title about agriculture, check out Moyashimon. It has the added bonus of having cute microbes and generally has the same tone and feel. If you end up enjoying it, try out the sequel, Returns, as well.
i absolutely agree. the setting of both moyashimon and silver spoon in university, oriented towards agriculture and the aanimation design (style) is quite similar in both.
Sorata Kanda has a real problem - he just can't say no to the cute face of a kitten! However, his lovely strays have finally landed him in trouble, as his dorm doesn't allow keeping pets. Given an ultimatum to get rid of the cats or move out, Sorata makes the mistake of standing up for himself and finds himself exiled to Sakurasou, the home of misfits the school doesn't know what to do with. Yet the more he spends time there, Sorata sees they all have their own incredible talents. None, however, enthralls him more than the latest arrival: Mashiro Shiina, a world class artist who is seemingly incapable of feeding or clothing herself! Since none of the other residents have a shred of responsibility, the onus of 'Mashiro Duty' falls to Sorata; what will become of Sorata and his latest stray, and will he ever achieve his goal of escaping Sakurasou?
Silver Spoon (2014) is a sequel to the Silver Spoon series aired in 2013. Taken in combination, I thnk that the two Silver Spoon anime are comparable to Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo (Pet Girl of Sakurasou) for the same reasons given in my recommendation for the first Silver Spoon:
Both series have strong comedy wrapped around a more serious story about finding one's path in life, and both introduce you to a well-developed set of colorful characters in a specialized high school setting. Silver Spoon deals with agriculture and Pet Girl with the arts, but I think the quality of the storytelling and the core themes are very similar. If you enjoyed one, I recommend trying the other.
