Moyashimon

Moyashimon

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!

Set in schools where students do more than learn traditional subjects like math and English, Moyashimon and Gin no Saji share a focus on agriculture, and the production of food. They have a similar tone: lighthearted and funny, with some more serious moments. These two are a great match.

If you're looking for an informative anime about agriculture, Silver Spoon and Moyashimon are for you. Silver Spoon isn't as focused on comedy as Moyashimon, but both are relatively quiet, interesting tales that will appeal to the same audience.

Bradalee Bradalee says...

While both are set in an agricultural school, it's Silver Spoon that uses that setting to its fullest, with Moyashimon choosing to focus on microbes rather than farm life or agricultural techniques. The latter puts its focus on brewing, with a fair amount of facts about the brewing industry littered throughout.

The comedy in both is fairly similar, and they are both essentially slice of life shows. Chances are if you enjoy one the other will appeal to you for those reasons.

Darby Darby says...

Both are about agriculture and school life with an assortmant of interesting supporting characters that keep it interesting.  Neither are fast paced and they are both kind of sweet in their own way.

Barakamon

Barakamon

The slice-of-life comedy centers around the ikemen (handsome) 23-year-old calligrapher Seishuu Handa, who moves to the remote Gotou Islands off the western coast of Kyushu. Seishuu grew up in the city, and the manga chronicles Seishuu's interactions with the people of the island, who drive tractors on public roads and don't enter through his front door when they visit. On top of that, Seishuu's house becomes a hangout for the island's children.

Each of these series kick off by introducing the viewer to a main character who has moved into a rural, and alien area from the big city after a crisis of confidence in his life. The story then follows him as he adapts to his new surroundings, a different pace of life and a quirky group of people who keep him on his toes while he searches for himself.

Both series are a fairly relaxing watch, with lots of really fun character interactions and well placed humour that ranges from smirk inducing to full on laugh out loud. If you enjoyed one of these shows for either of those reasons, then the other may well be right up your alley.

If you enjoy the gentle comedy mined from the culture shocks a city boy experiences out in the country side, you'll love Silver Spoon and Barakamon. Both are beautifully animated, and Silver Spoon is genuinely educational about farming while Barakamon expresses the annoyances and strengths of village communities. If you liked one, I'm sure you'll appreciate the other. 

kenikki kenikki says...

While the settings are different, they're both "fish out of water" stories, where the main character is placed in a 'world' he doesn't quite fit in, but comes to appreciate more and more over time.

They are both anime which set out to make you happy all the way to your core.

If I compare Barakamon to any series which is delightful & comic at the same time , only silverspoon comes to my mind. both are about a socially akward person who got invoved in a out of place society for him and....... you will see

Two very different animes, but both have a unusual theme. In Silver Spoon this theme is Agriculture, in Chihayafuru it's all about Karuta. Both slice of life anime have a very similar tone to them, that make you just want to smile along while watching it. They also have the same level of comedy. So if you liked the unique theme in one, you might like the other.

Natsume Yuujinchou

Natsume is lonely; he has an ability that separates him from others: he can see and interact with spirits. Soon, however, Natsume discovers that he’s not alone: his grandmother Reiko also had the gift. But things get hectic and possibly dangerous for Natsume when he finds out that he also inherited the 'Book of Friends', a book that contains the names of all the spirits Reiko defeated and subjugated. He finds himself hounded by his grandmother's underlings and, with the help of a 'cat' charm spirit, decides to free them from the Book's shackles, as well as protect the book from those who seek to misuse its power...

Silver spoon strongly reminds me of the feel Natsume Yuujinchou has. They're both light-hearted and you feel happy for some reason after an episode. Although one anime deals with unrealistic things such as spirits, and the other with completely realistic things, they both give you that good feeling after the episode.

Although they focus on different aspects of food production, both shows are about the resolve and hard work that goes into making your dreams come true. They have a similar appreciation towards good food and feature mouth-watering masterpieces you'd like to try for yourself. The outlandish reactions characters have to said masterpieces are what inspired this rec.

The comedy in Silver spoon is a bit low key compared to Yakitate! (which is almost like a sports show about bread making) but both are a fun way to learn something new and are worth your time!
