If you were lucky enough to join us this past weekend at MCM London Comic Con, you might have already glimpsed a peek of our Blu-ray Collector’s Edition release of Silver Spoon Season 1. Regardless, now that the final product is ready and has landed on our proverbial doorstep, we can now unwrap it and revel in all of its finery! Whether you’ve already pre-ordered your copy prior to its release next Monday (3rd June 2019) or are still planning to do so, we wanted to give you a proper look at our release of this long-awaited and frankly quite marvellous show from the creator of Fullmetal Alchemist.
First though, let’s start with a recap of what the show is all about, before we move on to the real meat of our unboxing.
ABOUT SILVER SPOON
Original Creator: Hiromu Arakawa (Fullmetal Alchemist)
Director (Season 1): Tomohiko Ito (ERASED, Sword Art Online)
Studio: A-1 Pictures
Synopsis: “The only reason why Yugo Hachiken decided to attend the Oezo Agricultural High School (a.k.a Ezono) was simply because the school had a dormitory. Entering Ezono was a way for Yugo to run away from the stifling academic pressures in the city, however, it didn’t take long for him to realize that life is not that simple.
Yugo is soon forced to face more hurdles in his new environment surrounded by all the farm animals and the magnificent Mother Nature. He also begins feeling a different kind of pressure as he deals with his classmates who, unlike him, all have a clear view of what they want for their futures. Even so, as Yugo overcomes one challenge after another at Ezono and deepens his bonds with his classmates, he begins to grow stronger both physically and mentally.
This is a coming-of age story filled with sweat, tears, and literally a lot of dirt!”
Here’s a quick trailer for you:
WHAT’S IN THE BOX? What’s on the discs?
No more horsing around or milking the situation, let’s get our first glimpse at this Collector’s Edition!
As you can see, following our traditional Collector’s Edition style this first season comes packaged in a rigid case, inside of which is Digipak to house the two BD-50 Blu-ray discs. Additionally, this edition comes complete with a series of five art cards as well as an A3 sized poster!
In terms of what’s on those two Blu-rays, across the discs you’ll find the entire first season (totalling 11 episodes), with episodes 1-6 on the first disc and episode 7-11 on the second. It’s worth noting that the entire series was never dubbed into English, so this is a subtitle-only release, in Japanese stereo LPCM audio with English subtitles.
Additionally to the series itself, you also get some promotional videos for the series plus textless opening and ending title sequences as extras across both discs.

Until next time, take care!
