Moyashimon ends


Oikawa sure gets a lot of female love ;)

Epic kiss (again), young adult existential woes and make-up hugs marks the finale of Moyashimon.

Truly a fun ride from start to finish, Moyashimon felt like a bit of Genshiken + Hachikuro dumped together with a agricultural-themed twist, totally different from my initial expectations of it being an “educational” anime.

No doubt, the bacteria took a backseat very quickly in the show, as we got absorbed in to the relationships of the cast members, but that was what made me love the show a lot. Still, that’s not to say the anime wasn’t totally ignoring the original theme, as I now know which bacteria makes sake and bread. Sometimes I swear I see some A.Orzyae on my bread.

Moyashimon was also supported by a rather strong cast, with Sayaka Ohara making her presence well felt with her role as Hasegawa. Noto-sama did a very fun role as Aoi Mutou as well. The combo of Katsuyuki Konishi and Noriaki Sugiyama was always fun to watch as the “gokiburi” brothers too.

Definitely one of the gems of last year, I’m glad to have watched and finished Moyashimon. It really had some fun and informative moments, peppered with lots of nice drama as well too. Having those cute chibi bacteria was awesome as well, and I might help myself to some goods if I ever find any on sales. Here’s to hoping for more Moyashimon this year :).


See you guys again, hopefully

In the meantime, would be awesome if someone scanlated the manga ;).

    Gah, I’ve yet to watch this yet. I hear about its awesomeness… but I’ve barely gotten through the other 20 series I have downloaded.

    Those bacteria look damn cute though. I want plushies too.

    Someone has already scanned the manga but in its raw form only. As always, Google is your very best friend.

    I just watched the last episodes yesterday, and I think the awesomeness really started just at the point when the subbers stopped at first. Moyashimon was a fun and crazy ride.

    […] I picked this anime up out of curiosity when exo said to watch it and a prominent figure on the internet made positive comments about it. Before I watched it, all exo had told me about it […]
