Sawaki Tadayasu and his long time friend from the village, Yuuki Kei, 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 Sawaki has a special ability that is inducive to adventure and glory, especially in the world of agriculture and biology: Sawaki 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!
When Yuugo Hachiken enrolled at Ezonoo, an agricultural high school, he had no idea what he was getting himself into. While his classmates revel in the barnyard chores and hard labor, eager to gain skills for their careers, Yuugo is challenged and sometimes downright horrified by the things he’s having to learn, whether he’s corralling stray cows, learning the shocking truth of where chicken eggs come from, or even getting comfortable with riding a horse! Alongside peers such as the lovely Aki, Yuugo will learn all he can about agriculture, making close friends in the process.
Both Moyashimon and Gin no Saji are manga set in a specialist agricultural school. While Moyashimon focuses more on microbes and Gin no Saji on animal care, if you enjoy comic manga about farming then you'll like both of these.
Recently died and have unfinished business? The Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service is your ticket to a worry-free, eternal rest! Made up of spirit communicator Kuro; embalmer Keiko; leader Ao; body dowser Makoto; and Yuji, a boy who communicates with aliens through a hand puppet, the group handles everything from suicides to murders with ease. Whether you need a message delivered or want vengeance for your death, the Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service can help you out - for a price. And while the team often has to end up working on a volunteer basis, they'll still get the job done with a sarcastic smile!
If you took out all the dead people and creepy bits from Kurosagi Corpse Delivery Service, you'd probably end up with something like Moyasimon. Both are comedic slice-of-lifes about university students (or, In Kurosagi's case, young adults that just graduated) that have rather... odd talents/careers.
And with Moyasimon's frequent tangents on microbial biology and Kurosagi's extensive and interesting endnotes, you might even learn a thing or two.
