Office comedies. Not very many people can think about this genre of comedy without thinking of heavy hitters like the two Offices (UK and US) and to a lesser extent, Parks and Recreation. Now, there seems to be a series that tries to take the office lives of Japanese civil servants and turn it into a comedy. Does it succeed? Let's find out.

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).

Recommendations

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

If you liked one, you will like the other!
- Both are seinen comedies.
- Both are about a working staff: one at a city welfare department, other at a manga store.
- Both have a side-focus on romance which develops nicely.
- Both are quite refreshing.

If you liked Servant x Service, chances are you that you will like Denki-gai no Honya-san as well.
