The general consensus on 2ch is that it was good, interesting, some said the best chapter of the week in Sunday. I'm happy to hear that and can't wait to actually read it!
Anyway, here are some spoilers.
The cow is a big fave, too, apparently

Oooohhh...... now that is awesome hype from 2ch!!! hopefully a group picks it up real soon. Mangastream's planning on releasing it but it looks like they're understaffed. Maybe you could help them out, Sal?? or is your group going to release it???
I think I'm gonna miss an "Ed" character. Kinda hope Arakawa makes a character similar to him. And man, Arakawa is a genius!!

Haha, I don't have a group Nor the time right now Seeing how MangaStream is taking on even more projects (Skip Beat), I think if they've said they are going to do it, they will
I am definitely going to miss Ed! And Al, and well, everyone in FMA really But, I guess we will need to see the characters in Gin no Saji to really say. Maybe they'll be awesome too :3 I can't help but feel some characters look similar to the FMA characters, like the guy in the while singlet/shirt (*mind suddenly blanks out*) looks a lot like Kimblee.
So is this gonna be like MX0? By that I mean the talking Cow gives the impression the second-rate high school is "special", and I foresee abilities being introduced. And since it's an agriculture school I expect germ warfare. I picked the Kyuubi emo because it kinda looks like a micro-organisms but not as cute as the micro-organisms from tales of agriculture.

I am aware that this new series is likely to become something more than good, but come on, again with the "girl disguised as a boy" thing ?
Apart from that, still very very eager to see some raw coming up.
The raw is out, and it looks like that spoiler is...
It's just a pretty ordinary agriculture manga. Maybe Arakawa is trying to do a Moyashimon in Sunday...
I just read raw of first chapter. It is pretty good (totally different from Fullmetal Alchemist); I'll keep follow this series and see how Arakawa manages to keep it interesting.
Also, it is totally different from the spoiler (except PE teacher part).

Favorite manga: Full Metal Alchemist
Favorite Genre: Slice of life/school life
Slice of life/school life manga by artist of Full Metal Alchemist? I'm intrigued. Good for Hiromu, not regurgitating another action manga. Hopefully she brings the same intelligence to Silver Spoon that she brought to FMA.
Glad that the girl in disguise thing turned out to be fake.
In the last pages there are one or two panels with the word "Geegle" instead of "Google", as well as the Bakuman anime did, going from Jump to Jack.
Now I wonder what the title is referring to, at first it reminded me of psychic powers, spoon bending and stuff like that. I know it is still too soon to get the meaning of the title but it really intrigues me.
Well, darn. I will update the spoiler verification info then Finestela says its "ordinary", Negative says it's "pretty good"... I'm not sure what to think now
I'm wondering about the title as well... The silver part is kinda interesting since it seems to follow from metal from FMA. But I'm sure, being Arakawa, there's a deeper meaning to it.

In Arakawa's case, ordinary = pretty good. She can take overdone concepts and completely invigorate them. The Philosopher's Stone has been done hundreds of times in the past millennium (heck, even Harry Potter did it), but she did something completely different and exciting with it.
And Arakawa is from a rural area, so she definitely has a lot of insight into what she's writing.
I'm not trying to slight Arakawa. Ordinary is just my expression for "not-talking-cow-magical" type of story.
And I'd think the comparison to Moyashimon alreadys says what I think about it, no?
you can download the first chapter here, it's translated as well http://mezawari.wordpress.com/2011/0...ver-spoon-c01/
