Last year, I chose Silver Spoon as one of the best five anime of 2013—so when I heard there was a live-action adaptation in the works, I was more than a little excited. Unfortunately, I am sad to report that the live-action film is devoid of much of what makes the Silver Spoon manga and anime so great.
Six weeks ago, I listed Silver Spoon as one of the five anime of the summer you should be watching—and with good reason. From start to finish, Silver Spoon is an anime that walks the fine line between realistic drama and comedy to create a series brimming with real heart.
When the summer 2013 anime season started early last month, I told you a little bit about each anime and where to watch them. However, with 36 new anime available to watch this summer, that raises the question: Which of them should you be watching?
