FMA's Hiromu Arakawa Starts Silver Spoon School Manga

Gin no Saji is 1st weekly series from Fullmetal Alchemist/Hero Tales creator.

On March 30, this year's 18th issue of Shogakukan's Weekly Shonen Sunday magazine is announcing the title and some other details of the new manga series by Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist, Hero Tales). Silver Spoon (Gin no Saji) will be Arakawa's first weekly manga series when it launches in the magazine's 19th issue on April 6. The story will be set in a high school in the northernmost Japanese prefecture of Hokkaido.

The manga will adorn the front cover of the magazine issue, and it will also have a full-color opening page. The issue will include a special clear file to commemorate the launch of the new series.

Arakawa ended her Fullmetal Alchemist manga in Square Enix's Monthly Shonen Gangan magazine last June, although she did draw a side story in September.

This is great news...who doesn't love Arakawa's stories? The only ones are probably those who didn't read them, so I'm excited about this...doumo

Hmm, I myself am a bit iffy on it... I mean, I loved FMA to bits and pieces, but I'm not sure what this school/agricultural story is going to be like :s Honestly the premise seems a bit dull, and that's dulled (hah) my excitement for the story somewhat. Of course, I hope to be pleasantly surprised :) If anyone can do that, I'd expect it to be Arakawa-sensei. *crosses fingers*
