Fullmetal Alchemist creator's Silver Spoon to be animated

6:00 PM on 03.27.2012 // Bob Muir

Hiromu Arakawa has been working as a mangaka since 1999, when her first work was published. Since then, she has worked on several manga, three of which were long-format. Two of those, Fullmetal Alchemist and Hero Tales, got anime adaptations. Now the third and newest manga, Gin no Saji (or Silver Spoon) is also getting an anime, according to the magazine Da Vinci.

The story follows Yugo Hachiken, who enrolls in an agricultural school so that he can live in its dormitory and separate himself from his parents. He assumes that he will have no problems due to his talent in studying. However, he soon discovers that there's a lot for a city boy to learn about agriculture.

It's a slice-of-life story, but with Arakawa's knack for storytelling, I'd imagine there's a lot more purpose in this than most slice-of-life stories. Naturally, there's no word on how soon the anime adaptation will be released or what studio is animating it. Since Silver Spoon has only been running since May 2011, hopefully whatever studio does get the job doesn't run into any filler problems like Bones did with Fullmetal Alchemist.
