Anime sometimes appeals to action, adventure and over-dramatic plots to keep people watching the series...after all anime series before it, very few revolved around real life and work places. Well, Working'!! is one of them, and though the story is mostly nonexistent, all the humor around the episodes will draw your attention to it. It's on the same base as the original Working!! anime, but with new characters and more of the anime restaurant we begin to love so much.

~ Never Change, Senpai! ~

The everyday antics and documentation of life at Wagnaria continue into this sequel installment to the first season of Working...

----------
Introduction / Context...
----------
As a direct continuation, "Working'!!" or "Season 2" as i will refer to it to avoid confusion, picks up where "Working!!" left off. The prior season of 13 relaxing episodes, was a "minimalist-styled" depiction of everyday life within our favourite family restaurant. It embraced its identity as a heavily slice of life oriented production, and so favored character development, over complicated plot development; hence the "no story, no good" argument used by those who generally dislike the SoL genre.

!!This review includes the first season!!

I′m not really that strict when it comes to anime with no 'goal' and story line. If it has a great art, music and set of characters - I′ll watch it. And of course, I need to rely on my enjoyment, if it′s not pleasing enough to make me smile, drop it. Working!! Is a really great and funny anime, with a simple sense of humor and jokes. At first, I wasn′t really paying any heed to Working!! because I thought this anime is just a mediocre and will be boring as hell - well I was totally wrong at read more

Hummmmmmmm..........So far, as I've viewed the 5th episode of this sequel of the original anime, I'd say that it is still as funny as before. It still maintains a plotless comedy genre about a group of individuals working in a family restaurant called "Wagnaria" in the outskirts of Hokkaido, and as usual the main focus are wacky everyday things that happens in the family restaurant, so for the story since it isn't much I'll give it a "Fair" number 6.

As for the art...........well........I'd say a "Mediocre" number 5 will do, since it is still the same art being used from the original anime. Sound, ok read more

If you want to see something hilarious and don't mind if the story isn't a major point of the series, then you should check out this one ,too.

Both show exceptionell interesting/unique characters and relations between those without too much of a great sheme in terms of development, but a great deal of jokes and mood raising stories.

The art and music in both seems decent so you should be able to enjoy it.

Anime: Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou
Similarities:

•Both shows share the same style of humour

•Both shows involve high school students doing everyday mundane tasks

•Both shows frequently use slapstick in their humour

Working Second Season and DKN are also really dissimilar:

•Working Second Season is set in a family restaurant while DKN is set in at a high school

•DKN's cast is mostly all high-school-aged males while Working Second Season has a
more varied cast in terms of age and sex
