Anime has evolved throughout the years, and now stories with agricultural themes are given a spotlight. Farming isn’t the most glamorous profession out there, but when mixed with fantasy world and comedic scenes, it’s hard to let shows like these go unwatched. 

Here are some anime series that can entertain both the anime and farm-life lovers:

If you aren’t into magic and fantasy worlds, here’s a comedy series set in an agricultural school in Japan.

Idol-obsessed Kousaku Hata’s favorite idol, Yuka Kusakabe, has retired from the entertainment industry, and Kousaku is completely devastated. Sinking into depression, Kousaku  isolates himself, but is soon convinced by his friends to return to agricultural school. 

By some miraculous development, Kousaka Hata finds that Kusakabe has transferred to his school and is in his class. Filled with motivation, Kousaka Hata takes advantage of this opportunity to be closer to the girl of his dreams.

As it is set in an agricultural school, the series’ comedic scenes are highly centered on the different aspects of farming.

The anime is 12 episodes long with 24 minutes each. Take a breather and have a laugh as you watch this series after a long day at the field.

The reality is that agriculture is quite a difficult job and a complicated topic, but anime series like these really give a fun twist to the sector, and may even be an entry point for the younger generation to be interested. 

There’s a lot more to look forward to, especially since a lot of writers have fun takes on farming and animation studios are taking up more stories that have agricultural elements in it. But for now, enjoy these!
