Gin no Saji

So here it is… The infamous Gin no Saji (Silver Spoon) anime, a creation by a very famous artist… Boy he must be pissed off when he saw this episode, surely. I know it has only begun, but I can only call this mediocre at the very best.

Gin no SajiThe artwork isn’t really that great, which is surprising because you simply expect a bit more when you know who’s behind this.  So yeah, I think the artwork is the biggest disappointment about the whole thing.

Now, luckily it still seems to be following the manga for as far as I’ve seen. Luckily I’ve only seen a few chapters, but I recognized a lot of the jokes. It was quite a shock when they killed that chicken, but I think they made up for that when they brought out that whole “where do the eggs come from?”-scene.

The show’s okay. It’s no Shingeki no Kyojin, that’s for sure, but it has its moments. You really need to like this sort of thing to be able to enjoy it, otherwise this just isn’t for you. Give the first two episodes a try, because I think the first episode might not be enough to win you over.
