There is a recurring issue with many slice-of-life shows that predominantly feature comedy: a tendency to neglect clear development in the narrative. The result of this lack of plot progression is that the humour soon becomes repetitive and events that take place can become almost painfully predictable, particularly if this show focuses on a smaller cast of characters, or even a single character (yes WataMote, I am talking to you). Static characters and predictable gags are the bane of comedy, while surprise, suspense, anticipation and variation are the sugar that can make it oh-so-sweet.

Taking these factors into account, it is evident that Servant x Service read more

This is an office comedy. It stars a small cast of young adults (Lucy, Hasebe, Chihaya, Miyoshi, and Ichimiya) all with their own unique quirks. There's a bit of romance, but mostly office antics that keep the story moving at a steady pace until the end of its 13 episode run. Think of it as Japan's answer to The Office of England and North America. There will be characters that you look forward to watching, and some that irk you every time they're on screen. And of course it wouldn't be Japanese without a talking animal, which comes in the form of a stuffed bunny read more

Same mangaka, so the similarities are endless - humourous happenings between a bunch of quirky characters in a work-based setting.

Don't let the titles fool you. Servant x Service and Hataraki Man can be misleading at first but comes handy dandy with its elements of surprise especially in the working field.

In both series, there's an office woman who works and puts a lot of her effort at what she does whether its' benefiting the company or the public as a whole. At the same time, they sometimes slack off during breaks and occasionally gets into situations involving the typical 'office romances'.

The working environment portrayed in these two series are somewhat realistic but contains a lighthearted tone fused with comedy. There's many cases in which we feel a bit sorry for some of the characters. For Lucy in Servant x Service, this could relate to her new adjustment involving her job. For Hiroko in Hataraki Man, it can be related to her habit of overworking.
