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.

How everything begins, and why everything happens. (Skip if you already read synopsis)

Following last season's end, Takanashi continues to work on Wagnaria with his fellow read more

!!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

Working'!! is the second season of a great show, but this season in particular seems to only kick the can down the road.

I like the concept that Working!! is using, however, the relationships and character development seem to be at near stand still. The season presents perfect opportunities for relationship advancements, but the characters are either simply too dense to notice what's happening or the writers are trying to delay an inevitable ending.

Character 4/10
I give such a low score because the character relationships do not advance very much. The biggest advancement so far is an exchange of text messages between Inami and Takashi. That's it.

Art, read more

[This is a review from the perspective of someone that didn't watch the first season. Might contain some generalized spoilers]

Ironically, everything that I was looking forward to this fall season turned out to be absolutely mediocre, and everything I didn't care for turned out to be pretty decent. Knowing this, I picked up Working'!! without watching the previous season, and surprisingly, it wasn't difficult to quickly get accustomed to the characters.

From what I've noticed, several factors make Working'!! a “good” anime; however, a few others hinder it from becoming a “great” anime. Working'!! has a cast of great characters, although they're not the read more

~ 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.

REVIEW: Working'!! (Season two)

"This is season two of the series by the way. If you want to read it anyway, go on ahead! Spoilers! If you want to read my review on the first season however, the review will be right down below!"

Story (5/10): Without a resolve with Inami's androphobia, without a surprise is that the unresolved fear of Inami's androphobia is going to continue on within the second season. To mention Ooto's search of his lost wife, Satou and Todoroki's relationship and Yamada's relationship with her family has yet to be solved. What I found disappointing however is that the plot that was worthy read more

This will get my typical second season review, which means that most of what I say will be found in my Season 1 review.
Another season of Wagnaria's crazy antics, gone by. Wagnaria Season 2 went in nice and quiet, then proceeded to get to the levels of craziness we're all used to.

Story: The story is the same as the original, although with a few extra characters being in the story more. Now instead of just the regular day at Wagnaria, you also follow others, like Yamada's brother and Otoo's wife. Overall, story's not changed, but a few extra gimmicks help keep it interesting.

Art: Updated with read more

6 Main characters
A variety of side characters (add at own discretion)
1 Relatively simple Slice of Life plot
1 Modern Day restaurant setting
A dash of comedy

throw them in a bowl, stir thoroughly, and your reward is Working!!. If your working comes attached with a ' at the end, don't worry it tastes exactly the same as a regular Working!!

Yes and here we are, with the second installment of that little series Working!!. The original was a quaint little show with a nice set of characters, a decent little story and while a little bit forgettable, it was overall a well put together show. So how read more

Wagnari just a normal family restaurant job with some normal short, sister, good looking chef, missing manager looking for his wife, and the schedule manger being op and having to be the manger. Its natural these things happen working at a family restaurant.
The show is funny and chill like a slice of life that isnt taking itself to serious. No i'm not saying its got gintama, belzebub, or tom and jerry humor like an endless vortex, but it makes you laugh some. This is not an amazing anime, but I wished the second season continued with the exact same characters as it would be read more

This season was just as good as the first one imho.

I laughed at every episode.

Highly recommended imo.

Story: Received a 9 only because I was hoping for a bit more on the Inami/Takanashi relationship but only about an episode or two really looked back on it and gave it a bit more depth.

Character: The other characters in the series got a bit more screen time with them not focusing so much on Inami/Takanashi. I did however enjoy that they got a bit more detailed with the Kyokuo/Tordoroki/Satou love triangle. The Popura jokes are always funny. I liked that Yamada got some more air-time and really read more

"Arigatou Daisy-chan"

The loveable incompetent idiots return for another excellent and hilarious season of Working'!!

Story: 8/10

Working'!! starts immediately where the first season left off, and doesn't fail to make me laugh and enjoy their daily shenanigans once again. One downfall was that not much was improved from the last season as this was a direct continuation of the last season, but the comedy and SOL moments more than made up for it yet again. Since it's a slice of life (one of my favorite genres) you won't and shouldn't expect much of a plot going on anywhere, and that's the best part about the genre as read more

"Try your very best to not write any spoilers."
Oddly enough, that seems not to be the case that often. I probably should state a good example right now but I came badly prepared so brain has to serve and rescue the review.

As you can guess from the synopsis already this second season of Working!! rotates around the same simple plot (slice of life at wagnaria's and the takanishi household) and still aims to just get you smiling rather than thingking.

You will get reunited with the same characters, which have still the same interesting starting position and they still won't solve anything. Sound and art read more

I don't know why, I don't know how, but "Working!!" (or "Wagnaria!!") managed to reach the top of the podium and become my favorite anime. I was a mostly shonen watcher when my friend told me about this comedy/slice of life anime named "Working!!". Well, it seemed nice and I decided to watch it. For my and his surprise, I ended up liking it a lot, much more than him, who showed me the series.

Although it has not one of the greatest plots ever (actually, doesn't even have a real, complex, totally continuous plot), the anime surprised me. As a seinen, it actually didn't have read more

2011 Slice of Life Series
Co-produced by A-1 Pictures and Aniplex
Licensed by NIS America
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)

CONS/What I loathe:
- Again, no plot which isnt the problem. What is is that the arcs they show are kinda all over the read more

The story is still really simple. It doesn’t have a complicated storyline and there’s not even a plot. Though that is the case, it’s still not boring at all. In a way that is very admirable because I honestly think it is very hard to make a series interesting if the story is very simple. It is also a lot funnier. The gags and punch lines are a lot cleaner. There’s even a bit of drama as well and in fairness, it is nicely done.

Though the storyline is very simple, it becomes interesting because of the characters. Well, that’s exactly what’s making the series interesting read more

Working’!! is exactly like Working!! but with an added apostrophe to confuse you. It has the same thirteen episode set up with the same characters, same restaurant, and same jokes. What I’m trying to get at is the fact that this review will be fairly tiny because there’s really not a lot that can be said about this second season of the series that I did not say in my previous review of Working!!.

The story is the same as before with Souta helping to cure Mahiru’s androphobia while working at a family restaurant operated by a big group of misfits. It runs in a somewhat read more

Continuing with the goings on at Wagnaria.

This actually an improvement from the first season mainly due to the better comedy timing. Inami punching Sota just didn't get old.

We're introduced to a few new characters:

Mahiru - Inami's dad and cause of her androphobia.

Haruna - Hyogo's wife who appears from odd places.

Yohei and Mitsuki - the squabbling twins from the manager's old delinquent gang. Yohei some how gets engaged to Sota's sister Kozue.

Kirio - Aoi's brother who is looking for her.

I think they can get a last season out of this so fingers crossed to tie up the stories.

Note: This is one of my works from Sekijitsu


The character designs and even the backgrounds were nothing great but nothing bad as well though what really appeals in the art section is the facial expressions and reactions each character displays throughout the series which makes it not only fun but FUN-ny (ahaha…no.) as well. It’s these over expressive emotions the characters in Working’!! display that makes the comedy they execute more powerful and enjoyable to watch that you’ll eventually want more.


Though not as catchy as the first OP, the second OP still offered a great jolt of fluffy cuteness while accompanied by the OP sequences. read more
