New Perspective of “Running Away” from Silver Spoon
One of my favorite mangas is “Gin no Saji” or Silver Spoon. Anime episodes and live action movie are good to watch too. Why do I like it? It contains good humor, interesting setting and deep messages. I want to share with every one some of good moments that cling on my mind. For summary, this manga is about a boy named Hachiken Yugo, a city boy from Sapporo. After failing to pass the entrance exams for the high school he plans to attend, Yugo decided to enroll at Ezo Agriculture High School instead (which is far from home and has dormitory), believing that an easier academic workload would leave him with more time to prepare for college exams. But his expectation of daily school life in agricultural school was completely wrong.
Favorite moment (“running away is one of what people could do to survive”)
*read it from right to left
what should those who cant run away do? ‘they have to learn to be stronger’
Touching moment (quote about “making mistake” by grandma Mikage)
Failed “I am a Man” moment
I dont expect too much this manga will be sold here in Indonesian version because, you know, this kind of manga (agriculture theme) wont attract people here to read. IMO, Indonesian people prefer urban life style and they just view rural area as place to rest (vacation) then they have to back to the city (I really want to live in rural area!). But if this manga were here, I’ll definitely buy it!
O ya, the ending OST of second season anime was very good! I like other Goose House songs (especially cover songs) too.
