Description
Meet Sawaki Tadayasu, the second son of yeast preparation suppliers, who is forced to go to an agricultural university and continue the family business. He has the unique ability to see microbes. He and his friend, Kei, are taken in as students by the fermentation-process obsessed Itsuki-sensei. This manga follows Sawaki as he tries to make his way through university as discreetly as possible…which is almost impossible if you’re as unique as he is.

Strange   
Rating: 9.5 / 10.0
by Papaya1124

It's strange... but I like... a lot. The characters are very, should I say, unique. They aren't your typical seinen or any genre characters. The plot is very original and intriguing. It's enough to keep you reading, but not so much that you need a certain mindset to read it. Some of the explanations about things in the manga are a bit extensive and occasionally confusing. I end up just rereading it until I get it, but I don't really mind. The drawing are decent, sometimes the characters are downsized, but that's about all I can say that's bad.

I also like that while Sawaki's abiility is unrealistic, the situations aren't. The microbes he sees are real and the things they do really happen. There isn't some magical new bacteria that is just suddenly there doing things that make no sense.

The jokes in this manga make sense. And they're funny. I like when Sawaki's battling the forces unseen by everyone else, then you see what everyone else, but him, is seeing.

Altogether, I personally like this manga very much. I suggest reading this to anyone looking for something new to read.

I really just wish someone would scanlate it though... it's so good.

Hard to read and digest....

The summary made me interested to pick it up and read. However, so much info in one page made me dizzy. Too much dialogue squashed into one page as well. If the artist had spread the info out and made it easier to understand, I would had given it a higher rating. For now, I'll go watch the anime to see if I can digest the info easily....

I first saw the anime perhaps about a year ago, I remember being so disappointed when it ended. I wanted more. I'm so happy to have found the first volume of the manga. Personally, I loved the art style. Ishikawa really knows how to set up the scenes, and I find it interesting how he uses reflective surfaces in his art. Overall, this is a great series, and I'd recommend it to anyone looking for a comedy.

really good manga (translate it!)

Since I saw the anime I can say that the history is good. And the characters and art are decent. If a translator read this, well, you know now what you have to do!! (Translate it please!?)
(And about the genere: its not wrong, many manga are simply too extreme with their themes, this manga is not the case and I like it)

More anime, some scanlation?

Add me to the list of people who were pleasantly surprised by the anime and wish a scanlation group would pick it up (from the start? or at least from where the anime ended?)

Very compelling (if broken) characters. I do hope that there is development (I'm very anti-Rumiko Takahashi in terms of ending a series in the middle of nowhere)

Sometimes...

Sometimes you just find a story that's strange and compelling, something completely different from the usual, that's just clicks.
That's is what Moyashimon is.

Since I've worked at a university for two years it's easier for me to understand all the bacteria facts that get's thrown in into the serie, but you don't got to have a master in biochemistry to understand it.
It's simple basic facts.

But do not think of this as a nerdy manga, the microbe facts are few, the story is compelling (get's really good around volume 3-4) and the characters are so too!

Hopefully some translator group will pick this one up and make my day.

the story is rrrrrriiiiiiiiiiillllllllllllllllllllllli lovable!! Hilarious, cute(bacteria), a ABSOLUTE must read!!! You'd think it's be rili boring with the theme of bacteria and the cover doesn't look 2 cute if ur lik me and lik shoujo, which i found a real turn off, but im glad i watched the anime with my sis. My fav scene has 2 be when haruka(i think that was her name...the gothic rich girl) got drunk and started scratching the poor dude's face off...xD

i first thought "bacteria, what the heck, this must be really booring." but it turned out to be a really great anime. i just love it. the thing is, im currently studying biology so everytime i come across a lactobacillus in my studies now i have to think of these funny little figures in the anime. i bet no-one else in my yr has so much fun learning about microbes! and professor itsuki is just awesome, so crazy, nearly beats my prof for plant evolution. hehe bigrazz
