In this week’s episode, Stephen and Zachary watch episode 4 of Silver Spoon. In it, Hachiken makes a pizza. That’s about it.
I’m just kidding. There’s more to it than that. In fact, there’s a lot more to it.
Stephen is surprised to learn that the author of Fullmetal Alchemist turned to a farming anime after her successful run in the land of magic parading around as alchemy. He’s equally surprised at just how enjoyable a simple story about a boy at farming school can be.
Silver Spoon is licensed by Aniplex in the U.S. That means the company wants to sell you an overpriced DVD box set. You can do that here.
If you enjoyed hearing Zachary and Stephen talk about anime for 22 minutes, you also might like hearing them talk with two other excellent dudes about video games for an hour each week over at Disembodied Voices.
