Our Review : The characters are definitely one of the strongest points of this show, and it really helps this show to be an enjoyable and personal one. The art in this show is pretty good, animated well. From what I could tell it was pretty fluid most all the time. The character designs are also pretty clean and weren't a distraction. One thing I thought the art did really good on though was making the food look delicious, causing your mouth water. Overall, this show was a lot of fun to watch. From the eye-opening views on the farm world to thought-provoking conversations to hilarious moments, this show on farming had my attention in a way I never thought it would. The premise seems strange, but it was a surprisingly enjoyable watch. Despite seeming slow paced like a normal slice-of-life show would, it still felt like the episodes went by in 5 minutes, a testament to how much it absorbs you into its world.
