Synopsis

Africa no Salaryman is a slapstick workplace comedy that follows the adventures of kind Lion, jaded Lizard, and perverted Toucan, as they trudge through office life while also becoming caught up in antics no regular office worker should.

Of course, most of these are the fault of Toucan, whose selfish actions and lack of filter still haven't gotten him fired. It's up to Lizard and Lion to keep themselves out of trouble and hang on to their jobs at the office. But trouble is never too far away from these savannah-treading folk.

Background

Africa no Salaryman was originally serialized online on pixiv Comic beginning in December, 2014. Media Factory has since compiled its chapters into four tankoubon volumes. In June of 2017, an ONA streamed on Production I.G.'s Tate Anime (since renamed Anime Beans) before the production of a television anime series.

A toucan, a lizard and a lion enter in an office, no, it's not a joke, it's Africa no Salaryman, which is way better.
The show tells about some african animals working in a japan-like society, the whole point is to criticize the japanese society, or maybe not, in any case it's amazing, the art is so terrible it becomes appealing, the characters are so nice and friendly you can nothing but love them. there are like 7000 punchlines per episode, they are not always that funny, but sure there are plenty of them that will make you at least smile.
in the opening the main characters ...

I have a soft spot for this weird piece of work.

Its mix of CG and traditional animation and the humor will not appeal to everyone. I didn’t enjoy absolutely everything, and boy was Toucan annoying, but there were many hilarious moments and even some heartwarming ones. As a working adult I found it relatable, and a good way to just relax, switch off my brain and go with the flow.

And Lion is absolutely adorable! I like the main VAs Tsuda Kenjiro, Ishida Akira (personal favourite) and even Shimono Hiro, and I totally heart Ohtsuka Akio in this. As well as him singing the ED, and ...

I happened to chance on this anime as I was browsing through a anime opening playlist on YouTube. What caught my attention was the fortnite dance they did and so I decided to watch it.

I liked the cuts in the middle which featured the ...
