The exciting antics of Wagnaria return as more ridiculous incidents occur, friendships are deepened, and new feelings are discovered. In addition to Souta Takanashi and his wacky co-workers, more eccentric personalities join the family restaurant: Haruna, Hyougo Otoo's missing wife, who has a habit of getting hopelessly lost through the sewer system; Kirio Yamada, Aoi's older brother, who is able to withstand Mahiru Inami's deadly punches; and twins Youhei and Mitsuki Mashiba, Kyouko Shirafuji's juniors who do not get along.

Absurdity, romance, and hilarity are all on the menu for the Wagnaria family restaurant!

Working'!! (2011)

Just a year or so on from the first season and we have a pretty different take on the show. Although it was very enjoyable, perhaps not as much as the first one since a few things are sort of grating me by this point.

The story is just a continuation which in itself in this setting is absolutely fine.

The artwork from episode 1 especially I thought was actually slightly worse than before. It is almost a different style to start with but also just sort of lost a bit of the special feeling it has by changing it so soon. I could understand ...

Mixed Feelings
TL;DR: Good starter anime, but even for a slice of life anime the plot is a vast nothingness

In a world filled with mediocre slice of life anime with no means of story progression this season of Working'!! seems to follow in its previous seasons issues of episodes full of NOTHING but mundane misunderstandings and frustrations of the characters inability to resolve anything in a way that doesn't get laughed off in a haha funny slice of life way. I wish I could say its a great show to put on in the background, but the show is riddled with dramatic pauses which is not a ...

Review from my POV (w/personal biases)
(Sp)oiler level: Medium (will take viewing S1 into account)

PROS/What I liked:
+ The background art got a noticeable face lift and the small faded coloring of the characters and lighting felt appealing. More fining detail was put into this show.
+ There were a FEW moments here and there that gave me a genuine laugh with it's deeply present situational humor (The frailness of Izumi Takanashi was hilarious)
