“The Harvest Show” is a concert where all of the different grains show off their beauty to everyone watching, and “HarveStars” is the name given to the grains who put on the best performances. In this modern age of rice acreage reduction policies and Westernization of eating habits, bread has become the most popular grain in Japan, and dinner tables are dominated by “Yeast King,” the bread HarveStars. But five new rice students have enrolled at Kokuritsu Inaho Academy, a school on the verge of shutting down, and they form a new group called “Love Rice” that’s practicing to beat Yeast King at the Harvest Show and win back the popularity rice once had… This heartfelt “kome”-dy featuring anthropomorphized grains is full of laughter and passion! Two grains aren’t needed at the dinner table… so which will become the true HarveStar?
