The light-hearted Working!! franchise comes to a close in this final episode of the concluding season. Will Aoi Yamada get the closure she so desperately needs with her distant mother? Will the relationship between Yachiyo Todoroki and Jun Satou continue to remain stagnant and awkward? Perhaps even Souta Takanashi and Mahiru Inami will take a step forward in deepening their eccentric friendship. And in the end, Wagnaria Restaurant might finally get a new chief!

Beautifully connected, all these events intertwine to give these characters a final ending to their stories.

Note: Don't read review if you haven't watched previous seasons of Working!! due this containing info on the latest season!

This concludes the Working!! series and I've gotta say, this episode ended the whole series so well and was able to leave everything on a surprisingly good note. As soon as you finish this episode, I can guarantee that you will be very reminiscent of all 3 seasons of Working!! and be glad you watched it.

Throughout this one episode, it helps reflect and showcase what the Working!! cast has accomplished in season 3 such as: (SPOILER)
- Aoi Yamada reconciling with her mother and brother, thus being read more

This will be a short review void of any spoilers for the 3rd season of Working!! and its hour long finale.

What a great end to the season of Working!!! and the series as a whole. Unlike most Slice of Life/Comedy anime, this season has a lot of closure, the characters grow up and mature a lot from the first season and all the side stories/teasing relationships you thought were just running gags all get fitting and nice resolutions to bring them to a close, with the finale bringing the main characters problems & relationship to a heart warming ending.

So this is really the cherry on top of the first three seasons. The main reason this episode came out was to wrap up everything that was left hanging at the end of the third season; Takanashi's mother and Inami's feelings and Taneshima becoming the next chief.
Story 9/10:
This episode really doesn't deviate too much from the aura that the first three seasons had. It wasn't just some OVA episode that had nothing to do with the main story, in fact, this is essential to finishing up the story. It's ambience doesn't change much except for some small heartwarming scenes and the addition of Takanshi's read more

Meeting new characters, seeing them grow, and having fun with them. Being there- being part of everyone's adventure at Wagnaria is an adventure itself. Everything has been memorable and precious.

I don't know how to explain this sensation in my heart, but I'm overflowing with joy. The finalie was so fulfilling and satisfying; it was perfect. The only way to end such a wonderful show.

This feeling that Working!! has given me will keep me warm for a long time to come.

"Thank you! Please come again."
