Before the new episode is released today Tyler and I would like to get caught up with the reviews of the first two episodes!
Silver Spoon is about Yugo who is attending an Agricultural Boarding High school. Yugo is the last person you would see attending a school like this because, unlike his classmates, Yugo knows NOTHING about agriculture.With in his first week he chases a calf all the way off campus and a girl (Aki) on a horse comes and saves him.
How the school works is that they have agricultural labs and then class work, they also must join a club on campus. They also are separated in to groups for their labs, which they will see these people for the rest of their time at the school. You see how much Yugo doesn’t know during his labs when he finds out where an egg from the chicken comes from. Yugo knows he will have no problem doing the actual class work, though he isn’t as “agriculturally smart”. His classmates also wonder why he is even there if he doesn’t know anything about agriculture. It is hinted towards that he doesn’t want to be home so he chose the only school that would let him in from his test scores.
Yugo is also faced with the challenges of picking a club to join, and adjusting to this new life style. You meet other characters in the show from him going around wondering what club he can join, since he can’t avoid it. He ends up settling with the equestrian club because Aki (the girl who saved him) persuaded him to join. So, it is seen that there is potential shipping between the two. As he gets on to a horse for the first time by himself he accepts that he could see him self having this career and lifestyle.
The show is deliciously adorable, and a really light watch. It also seems that this is the school the the whole cast from Harvest Moon attends! Anyway Tyler and I are really excited to watch the rest of this show this season.
