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.

Note:Won the Grand Prize for the 12th Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize and the 2008 Kodansha Manga Award for general manga.

Considering the theme and story, it's again one of these typical "damn that story is stupid, nothing good can come out of this", but really now, I think we have all learned our lesson ;)

The anime was amazing, but as said very short, and I too hope for a second season. Meanwhile, it looks like a scanlation group has started to scanlate it, I'm going to take a look at it later, but I'm sure I wont be dissapointed (rarely have I ever read a manga that was bad in comparison to the anime) I just hope they catch up with the anime soon enough!

I REALLY hope they do another season, or more.
And I'd certainly pick up the manga if a group decided to scanlate it. Sadly, since it's a seinen, and contains lots of scientific type stuff, it's probably beyond the abilities of an average TLer.

But that's what dictionaries are for!

Either way, awesome anime, wish I could read the manga. ;)

The anime for this was my favorite of 2007. At eleven episodes, an OVA or two better be in the works if not a second season. I'd love to see how the manga was done. Hell, I'm tempted to try to read the raws but the thought of searching for translations for all the names of the microorganisms... It took me long enough to find info on the translated oddities. In any case, here's hoping someone will pick this up.

The anime thus far has been very pleasant, much thanks to efforts by BSS subs. Hopefully some group will pick up the manga project. (Hopefully with a roster familiar with basic microbiology or teh wikipaedia)
