Description: Tadayasu Sawaki has just enrolled in an agricultural university in Tokyo with his long-time friend Kei Yuuki. Although not known outside a close circle of friends and family, Tadayasu has the unique ability to see and communicate with microbes, which appear larger and look different to him than they do to a normal person's eyes. This catches the attention of Keizou Itsuki, a professor at the university and an old friend of Tadayasu's grandfather who specializes in microbiology and fermentation. Thus begins Tadayasu's tutelage under Professor Itsuki, aided by his graduate student Haruka Hasegawa, as he attempts to adjust to his new life at the university.

Moyashimon won the 2008 Tezuka Osamu Cultural Prize's Grand Prize and the 2008 Kodansha Manga Award for general manga. It was also nominated for the 1st Manga Taishō award in 2008.

I dont think ill ever find a manga that strikes a chord in me like this while also making me smile so much while reading it.

Hachimitsu Scans thanks for translating it; thanks to you i finally got rid of a decade long hunger to know what happened after the anime 2 seasons .Now only 2 more volumes left for the ending...

 

Could i convince you to take another great abandoned oldie once you finished this? "Pumpkin scissor" needs some love too

Yeah, when we mature this'll truly be a great coun-

*looks at our current president*

...

 

...guess we have a long way to go.

CH122 might honestly be my favourite chapter. Relationship drama, spectacle of the Orleans ffestival and just the pure instanity sinking in. ALSO

 

AMERICA!!! F**K YEAH!!!!!!

Holy... he looks like a buff Andre from Prison School....

So I've been binge up to chapter 76... but was it ever explained why Kei was dressed as a Gothic Lolita?

 

Like I feel like I missed something when reading. It sort of just happens and everyone just rolls with it.

Something about wanting to hide his identity while working at the sake bar.

Spoiler

I can't stop lusting after Kei. Anyone else have this problem?

 

I want to hold him in my arms as he sits on my lap.

Twincest is wincest. 

Man, I really enjoy that everyone's reaction to Kei was my reaction.

 

"Two guys shouldn't be like that!" says the dude who dresses as a woman and kissed Sawaki and got jealous when he received attention from a girl enough to fly to America and drive across the country.

 

Sure honey. Whatever you say.

Ugh, the worst case scenario. Definitely don't support that ship.

 

I like this ship better. IMO Tadayasu has always been a weak MC and trying to lump him in a love triangle feels forced. This ship makes a lot of sense honestly.

Ugh, the worst case scenario. Definitely don't support that ship.

Sawaki just can't get any girl to like him. Haruka is taken, marie is taken, 2 girls back at university have different preferences(girl from the same year as sawaki prefer older guys as for the one who is miss university i don't rembember, but she is more into girls than guys...)

Moyashimon in America: Yeast Meets West.

I think Moyashimon: America: From West to Yeast fits better.

So much for the tada/marie ship. That was fast.

Even I didn't know my ship could set sail so fast.

What do I even do with myself now.

I guess back to shipping Sawaki with Oikawa.

2 out of the 3 pieces of the being that is "yuuki" has now been assembled, once the third piece arrives and touch each other a yuuki black hole will form and we will all bow down to its pure yuuki-ness.

 

i also love how they think each other is cute, that sense of narcissism is real. it reminded me of this great QI moment

Damn there's a ton of chapters now

Moyashimon in America: Yeast Meets West.

Does anyone else hear the Professor's voice as Professor Farnsworth from Futurama?

Japan is massive on that 'approximate' size comparison with the states.

 

For less approximate size comparisons (with most recognized nations circa 2013):

 

Spoiler

Japan is massive on that 'approximate' size comparison with the states.

japan is as long as the east coast of the US and have the area comparable to california, so the aproximation there is actually pretty apt

TBH I too was surprised by the amount of frozen food in supermarkets when I just came. Now I'm appreciating the variety of stuff to choose from. P.S. the thing that surprised me the most in US is the focus on coffee as the main drink while everywhere I used to be before it was black or green tea. Actually there were only three models of kettles in local Walmart and a freaking row dedicated to coffee machines.

Ah, my favorite manga arc.

 

The dumping on America arc.

 

=/

 

More the "stereo-typing a foreign country" arc.  You had pretty much the same thing with France as well.  Though in both cases it does a fair job of breaking away from stereotypes.

 

When you write something, you can really only write about what you know (or imagine) and when it comes to the fine details of a given nation someone that's not lived there for decades is going to have some issues... especially with the US, which is huge and has much more variety of cultures, foods, customs, etc than the relatively small nation of France or Japan (which still have quite a variety).

 

Though, thanks to the author's choices and subject, it doesn't really need to be detailed.  It just needs to show the impressions and knowledge of a well-educated tourist.  Essentially.
