I watched and finished Moyashimon fairly quick. It’s 11 episodes felt like nothing. Do I like it? Yes. If find it very entertaining and educational. Lbrevis and I have been talking about its possible use as audiovisual material in science education. My background is (was) in literature education at the university level so I’m in no way an authority in recommending this.
But that conversation happened when I was only 4 episodes into the series. I may have to revise my opinion.
Um, yes. Moyashimon is one of the gayest anime I’ve ever seen that isn’t specifically targeted to the bl/yaoi fanbase. I won’t spoil the other SURPRISING incidents. I don’t think it’s a bad thing at all, only that I don’t think sexually charged scenes regardless of orientation will distract anyone watching it for the biology.
Furthermore, a lot of the science goes into the development of alcoholic beverages so I’m not too sure if it’ll be fit for educational use. In any case, it’s a very entertaining anime. It doesn’t go for cheap laughs, despite the image I put up. It’s time well brewed.
