Arakawa Hiromu is a Japanese manga writer very famous as an author of “Full-metal Alchemist.” Now, the artist has also written and illustrated “The Farming Peerage (Hyakusho Kizoku)” since 2006. That is an essay comic that directly describes reality upon farmers with humor and seriousness. Arakawa had farmed for 7 years before becoming a manga artist.


By this explanation, some may consider it is a recreation to evoke sympathy of farmers or to console those who long for local life. No, the essay does not describe such an easy theme.

With thorough reality, Arakawa Hiromu gives comical warning to people who easily have interest in farming for some reasons.

We all live on consuming other life. Breeders grow cows, pigs and vegetables. Through retail shops, we got a part of them and eat. A drawback on this structure is that end users cannot catch real life. Many are alive without feeling they go on killing something.

Naturally, breeders are not so. They tightly face and manage other life Standing on the important stage are farmers, namely, the main characters of “The Farming Peerage.” There is the deep river between normal consumers and them on values. Our unlikeliness is their commonsense, you know. This essay comic gives you, who easily long for local life, a serious question which says “Do you desire to farm over the deep river?” However, it also includes a lot of humor, and then you can read cheerfully.

By the way, I firstly knew Arakawa Hiromu is female.
