The Silver Spoon series is in the midst of having its manga end after being on hiatus for a few years and now we’re getting the news Aniplex USA is bringing the anime adaptation to Funimation. Aniplex USA has streamed it previously and brought out DVD releases and now Funimation will be able to stream the series on their service for the very first time.
Plot concept: The only reason why Yugo Hachiken decided to attend the Oezo Agricultural High School (a.k.a. Ezono) was simply because the school had a dormitory. Entering Ezono was a way for Yugo to run away from the stifling academic pressures in the city, however, it didn’t take long for him to realize that life is not that simple. Yugo is soon forced to face more hurdles in his new environment surrounded by all the farm animals and the magnificent Mother Nature. He also begins feeling a different kind of pressure as he deals with his classmates who, unlikely him, all have a clear view of what they want for their futures. Even so, as Yugo overcomes one challenge after another at Ezono and deepens his bonds with his classmates, he begins to grow stronger both physically and mentally. This is a coming-of-age story filled with sweat, tears, and literally a lot of dirt!
