Working is no easy task. In fact, getting by every single day with a job is something we all want especially in today's world of recession. With the current economy era, it's best to work hard and keep up with your job hoping you don't hear the two forbidden words known as 'you're fired!' For three certain newcomers, they've become new employees at a Health and Welfare Department of a certain government office at a certain city in Hokkaido. In Servant x Service, we get to see an insight look on what it's like to work in such an environment and their daily lives.

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

Sevant x Service surprised me with how much I enjoyed it. I expected it to be your usual slice of life -- entertaining, but nothing special. However, while it may not have been the best show in existence, it was certainly worth the watch and I'm disappointed there isn't a second season.

Story: 7/10
The story was pretty average; a group of people working as civil servants and helping others. It focused on their relationships with each other without getting too overly dramatic, and to be frank, it was awfully cute. I especially enjoyed Hasebe and Lucy's relationship as the story progressed.

Art: 7/10

Good shows are less popular and low ranked on MAL-this is the case of servant x service.
The background of SxS is a government office where our main protagonists work. This anime is one of the very very few anime where we can see normal life style of normal people like us. It has no supernatural, fantasy, action, meaning less fighting and the story is quite paced. Romance is the main theme of SxS and it is matured kind of romance, not high school type, where boy is running after girl or vice versa. The episodes have gotten better and better as the series progressed.

Anime: Working!!
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!

Anime: Denki-gai no Honya-san
- 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.

Anime: Hataraki Man
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  read more

Anime: Working'!!

Both involves people in everyday situations in their work place.

Both have the same comedy and slice of life genre.


The characters in one anime are in their twenties, while the characters in the other anime are a combinations of mix ages.

One is set in a gov't office, while the other anime was set in a family restaurant.

Both are seinen with comedy and romance. Both criticize society. Each character has its unique characteristic and both have adult characters.

Anime: Tamako Market
Its not exactly the same, but there are quite a few similarities. The dim witted main character and the humor are similar. Although, SxS contains less plot and is just like comedic mild office romance. The best part about the jokes are not when they happen, its the characters reactions.
