On October 26, 2022, the slice of life manga announced on the official Twitter account for Hiromu Arakawa’s Hyakushou-Kizoku comedy that it’s getting an anime adaptation of Noble Farmer!

The tweet also says to stay tuned in and follow the Twitter account for more information on the upcoming anime adaptation.

In 2008, Hiromu Arakawa, the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist, began writing and illustrating an autobiographical manga that tells the story of her time as a farmer in Hokkaido and the interesting “country wisdom” she learned there.

Fans of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga may recognize the signature aristocratic cow as seen in the Fullmetal Alchemist bonus material and author moments that featured Hiromu Arakawa as a cow.

The manga begins with the introduction: “If you don’t have water to drink, why not let them drink milk? Before Hiromu Arakawa became a mangaka (manga writer), she spent 7 years in Hokkaido and worked in agriculture. She raised cows, planted crops, had a few close encounters with bears, and got pushed around by cheeky seed-stealing squirrels. Quiet was rare and there was always a lot to do. But that’s the life of a noble farmer. This is Japan’s first manga that describes fun facts about farming. The common sense you learn in farming is not the same as common sense in everyday life.”

The manga’s story begins with Hiromu Arakawa stating that Japan currently produces only 40% of the food it consumes and that she is worried about the country’s future. Hokkaido is known for being the “breadbasket” of Japan, and it was here that Arakawa decided to do her part to prevent everyone in Japan from dying of starvation.

Arakawa worked the farm every day until it was covered in mud, but in heroic Shounen Jump class fashion – she never gave up!

Apparently, animal diaries have been adapted into manga form, but a manga about farming is rare. Perhaps that’s why Arakawa was inspired to write and illustrate the best-selling manga Silver Spoon, which debuted after Fullmetal Alchemist reached its end.

Where can I read Noble Farmer?

On December 28, 2006, Hiromu Arakawa published her manga Hyakushou Kizoku in Shinshokan’s manga magazine Un Poco, but the magazine suspended its publication on March 28, 2009 with its 17th birthdayth Output. On July 28, 2009, Hiromu moved the manga to the publishing magazine Wings. Arakawa published chapters sporadically. The manga’s chapters have been collected into individual wideban volumes by Shinshokan and seven volumes have been released as of October 22, 2021.

In 2012, the English version of the manga was published digitally by JManga, a digital manga outlet that is one of the 39 publishers of the Digital Comic Association. JManga has released one volume in Japan so far.

The story revolves around mild-mannered student Yuugo Hachiken, who fails the entrance exams for the high school he intended to attend. Due to the fact that his relationship with his family is strained, Hachiken decides that he now has an excuse to move away from home and enroll in a school far away. He chooses the rural Ooezo Agricultural High School in the country.

Hachiken finds that his ability to learn doesn’t really matter what school he goes to. However, Hachiken soon discovers the uncomfortable truth about life on the farm. Hachiken has no intention of becoming a farmer after he graduates, but he is slowly being drawn into the world of farming against his will. Hachiken struggles to keep up with his new friends, who are the farmers’ heirs and are already used to a hard-working farm life.

Where can I read the manga or watch the Silver Spoon anime?

On April 6, 2011, Hiromu Arakawa brought down Silver Spoon in the 19thth issue of Shogakukan’s Weekly Shounen Sunday Magazine and became the main subject of the manga. On November 17, 2019, the manga ended in the 52ndnd Output. The chapters of the manga were collected into fifteen tankoubon volumes by Shogakukan.
