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.

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

Although both stories have differing plot and scenary they do have some common points. Each show has a main character being thrown into a completely different environment, and seeing how they adapt to the new way of life and the people around them.

Both involve intelligent protagonists who are searching for something. And in the process they make friends and learn to appreciate having different priorities in life.

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.

clownlily clownlily says...

The settings are very similar, agricultural schools, though explored in different ways. Moyashimon is more fantastical and humorous, where Silver Spoon is thoughtful.

Silver Spoon reminds me of Honey and Clover for a few reasons. They have a similar light and occasionally comedic atmosphere, revolving around a group of friends going to a school that involves trades (art, agriculture). The characters wrestle with tough decisions about work, education, relationships, and life. If you liked one, you might give the other a try--I suspect you'll enjoy it!

RinoaAeris RinoaAeris says...

The main character just enrolled a new school for arts/farming, and realizes everone around him has a dream about their future jobs and great talent for it, while he's still stuck trying to find what motivates him.

Shirobako

Shirobako

Aoi will never forget how she felt the day her high school animation club’s labor of love was shown at the cultural festival. The sense of awe and the feeling of accomplishment that came with completing their very first project are exactly what encouraged Aoi and her club mates to enter the animation industry in the first place. But two years later Aoi has graduated, and now that she works as a production assistant for a big-name animation studio, the daunting reality of her job has somewhat diminished her enthusiasm. Despite the long hours and the punishing schedule, Aoi still hopes to fulfill the promise she and her club friends Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori made: to one day reunite and make a real animated feature of their own as professionals!

Shirobako and Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji) make you root for their protagonists while giving you a warm happy feeling.

The shows take daily life and manage to make it an interesting and compelling story, where main characters try to find their path in this world.

I think if you like one you will probably like the other.

Kirith Kirith says...

"Slice of life" but with clear goals and challenges unique to the professional environment depicted. VERY technical procedures are made not just accessible but actually interesting.  Learn more than you ever knew about the industry. Distinct characters with lots of unique personalities that stay with you long after having moved on to a new show.

Chihayafuru

Chihayafuru

Chihaya Ayase is a famous beauty at her school, but she’s far from a conventional girl. Three years ago in her final year of elementary school, Chihaya and her friend Taichi became infatuated with the card game, Karuta, after connecting with a lonely boy named Arata Wataya. But when the trio graduated from elementary school, they each went their separate ways but shared one common goal: to excel in the game and meet each other at the national championships. Now, Chihaya is attempting to share her passion for the game by creating a competitive Karuta club at school, but when she reunites with Taichi it seems that maybe she’s the only one with the intention of fulfilling their childhood promise...

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.
