Both animes are produced by Aniplex and A-1 Pictures, leading them to have a similar art style. Working!! and Servant x Servant both share the same work/employment settings and are both light hearted comedies.
From the same production studios (Aniplex and A-1 Pictures), both series features an environment of the working field where we see the characters' every day lives. Thus, expect a lighthearted environment of hard working individuals as they go through everyday in a slice of life format.
There is a lot of humor, drama, and catchy dialogues presented. Among other things, the colorful casts are defined by their various personalities in the working field.
Both are slice-of-life comedies (with a good amount of romantic comedy elements in it) that tell the tale of a group of eccentric people at a workplace and their relationships with their fellow workers. The type of comedy is similar, as long with several of the characters.
From the studio that brought you the action series 'SAO' comes a comedy about a friendly working environmental show. In the series, it follows the daily lives of the main characters working in an office or a restaurant where they just do best on their jobs. There are funny moments, romance, and somewhat conflicts between the characters.
There is not much of a difference in the series, but Working is basically a teen job, and works at a family restaurant. Servant X Service, basically an adult job working on some office building.
Both have little-to-no plot (not a bad thing!) Instead, they are driven by the character interactions (which are hilarious). The medium cast size allows us to know the supporting characters without losing focus on the main characters. A romantic aspect develops throughout the series. Overall, you'll get a very similar vibe from both anime, and if you liked one, you'll definitely like the other.
First of all, they have the same author, Takasu Karino-sensei. They are both a romance-comedy which takes place is a work place. The characters are all interesting in their own way, they represents different kinds of workers. It shows what's really happening in work. You will surely learn from these anime. I recommend for you to watch this anime because you will have fun watching it. :)
To those who wants a similar vibe to Working!! i reccomend you watch Servant x Service not only that it is set in a workplace but it is in the comedy genre as well at first i thought this is an hentai or ecchi anime as the name suggest see for your self. Nevertheless it is still a great anime and definetly worthy to check out.
MM is built around a sadomasochistic pairing. Working isn't. So, when you first read Working's summary and note that it has a restaurant setting, you'd think it'd share few to no similarities with MM's school club shenanigans. BUT, Working may as well be about the members of a club interacting, so reliant on character gags it is--the whole at-work-not-school aspect getting overlooked... with school girls STILL being main characters. (Anime, I am disappoint...)
What makes these two super-easy to link is MM's Arashiko and Working's Inami. They have a phobia of all things male and react with EXTREME violence whenever one comes close to them. And although Working's male lead isn't a masochist (though he does come to question whether he is), he's a freak in his own right with his "minicon" fetish.
Like I typed above, Working cares little for actual working, and a GREAT degree of emphasis is placed on Inami punching the lead in S1; falling for him more with every punch. In fact, the series has more to do with the lead being punched than serving customers. The hate-to-love-via-punching 'romance' as the respective male leads get used as punching bags in order to cure their violent lady friends = THESE SO SIMILAR! read more
Both have in common:
*Comedy, some romance, slice of life
* Both have an androphobic girl
* characters have fetish and weirdness
* The male protagonist helps to the heroine with her androphobia issues.
* There are cross dressings in both
* Similar design and atmosphere
Both of these slice-of-life Anime deal with the working class. Working!! takes on a more comedic look, while Hanasaku takes on a more realistic life approach. Either way, the work force is looked at and serious issues are handled, albeit one in a serious manner, and the other in a more comedic manner.
in both, the main character gets a job in the first episode and has to learn the ways of the work place. they both work in the waiting staff, even though one is from a restaurant and the other an inn. both animes also has a slice of life feel with a dose of love drama.
While the romance is not as well written as that of Working, the fun group dynamic can be found in Hanasaku. if you smiled everytime Satou or Takanashi made fun of Taneshima's height, you will smile everytime Ohana gets called a "Homiron" or whatever. Like Working, Hanasaku Iroha does focus on a main character in the group but the backstories and continuations of side character stories are developed as well and tied into the MC's storyline. Hanasaku is however more dramatic and serious compared to Working and the characters are more seriously developed at the expense of the romantic subplot. In the end, both shows have charming group dynamics. read more
Both anime series have an element of comedy and randomness in the episodes, following the daily lives of the characters and their relationships with each other. Both have a similar pacing: comfortable, without any fast pacing. Minami-ke basically focuses on the three sisters while Working!! on the part time workers at Waqnaria. In both all the characters have varied personalities with defining features. The visuals are also similar with both having bright colours.
If you like one then it is highly probably you'll like the other as well.
Both are as pointless as it gets, but they are cute as they are pointless however. One is about a slice of life story about people working in a restaurant, and the other is a about a gaggle of high school girls drinking tea when they should be playing music. I guarantee if you like one, you'll like the other.
If your watching K-on!!, watch Working!! to see many funny stuff like what you see in K-on!!, but this time, its all about Drama, Young Life and of course Comedic fun! See similar characters like the reversal of Mio being tall and Taneshima being Short! So enjoy!
Both comedies are really alike and are both hilarious
Both anime have the main character working in a restaurant
Jun Satou and Hiroomi Souma are like Ashiya Shirou and Maou Sadou
Both main characters have someone they hate and fight with, but also have a bit of romance between them too
"Just another day working with my friends for the company." The main characters in here are basically working to help their financial needs or just for their own spare time. There are wacky situations, somewhat slapstick, and the character interactions were enjoyable to watch. There is somewhat a romance development between the main characters.
The difference is that Maou-sama is a fantasy-action genre, where a demon main character transports to the human world and finds a job for his next goal. Working is somewhat a normal type of work, with slapstick moments.
Both series were placed in a comedy within a workplace, Denki-Gai no Honya-san is a workplace comedy set in a bookstore in a certain "electric town", whereas Working!! is a workplace comedy set in a family restaurant in Hokkaido. Both follow the funny daily lives of a quirky crew at work; "slice-of-work" if you will.
Workplace comedies featuring a cast of multiple male and female mains each with their own distinctive quirks. The cast consist of both high-schoolers and adults. The comedy is centred around the quirks of each character and their interactions between co-workers. The most similar characters are Sommelier and Souta Jun as they can be considered 'gentle giants', appearing tall and menacing but are actually kind. There is romance in both with characters having obvious pairings with one another. Overall, funny and enjoyable workplace comedies featuring a cast of quirky and lovable characters.
These shows are all about relationships between coworkers. While there is difference between the workplaces main structure is similar. Both of them focus on relationships and romantic elements with some drama added into the mix.
* Both contains heavy slice of life episodes...about work....
* Both are funny AF....(fkin awesome cast)
* Both have a little bit of romance...which is nescessary...
* Work×Work×Work & more work....
* Similar char designs....similar enviroment...
* Quirky characters....
the quirkiness of the characters in both series struck me. Toradora centers around school life and follows a set story line, has some gripping drama near the end and has a clear conclusion. Working!! on the other hand doesn't have a plot, or a conclusion and revolves around the workers at a family restaurant. It is much more random and focuses on comedy (althought i thought Toradora was just as humors). Toradora's Ryuuji inherited his serial killer father's scary looks, Working's Satou also has a scary look but both are nice guys under their scary exterior. Ryuuji's mother's and Working's Kozue (Takanashi's older sister) were really similar characters. Ryuuiji and Takanshi are both the responsible members of their households and naturally take on the responsibility of cleaning and cooking. Ryuuji's getting beat up by Tiga was sort of similar to Takanshi betting beaten up by Inami. Both these male characters do not appreciate getting beaten up but still take it well and end up supporting the female character instead of running away. Both Toradora's Tiga and Working Popura are short doll looking characters. Tiga's personality, however is alot closer to Kyouko demanding of food, cold face, and gangster violence attitude. Last, think Toradora's Ami's personality fits well as an older more mature sister to Working's Yamada in looks and manipulation of other characters. Finally, in both anime's the character's Ruuiji and Inami have to escape the negative impact their currently absent fathers had on their lives. Both anime's talk about on the importances of past events on present situations. read more
Both series are romance/comedy series, with Toradora! falling more towards the romantic side while Working!! focuses more on the slice-of-life comedy. The main characters are extremely similar, having to do housework for an otherwise dysfunctional family made most obvious by their drunk vixen of a mother/older sister. Both involve a diverse cast of both male and female members, with some of those characters corresponding to those in the other series somewhat well (Taiga/Minori are shuffled versions of Poplar/Mahiru, Kitamura has elements of both Souma and Satou, Yamada is like a mini-Ami, etc.).
Ultimately though, both are simply good examples of the rom-com genre done right. read more
This may seem a little farfetched at first but hear me out. Both of these animes have a set of characters that you will learn about as you watch the series. To each the characters come with very distinct behaviors and attitudes which fills in the roles where they stand out. There is a lot of comedy which I really enjoy. The romance in both of these is light and never fully hatch into anything major, which is not entirely a bad thing. Arakawa Under the Bridge is a bit more fast paced compared to Working!! Nevertheless, if you enjoyed one of them, you can have high hopes of enjoying the other. Also, positive reinforcement never hurts. :)  read more
Both contains main characters who are afraid of opposite gender (Gynophobia from Mayo Chiki! and Androphobia from Working!!) and working with opposite sex in order to 'cure' it. Both also contains romance and comedy aspects. Both have male lead who were beaten quite a lot. And of course both wears glasses. But, there are more ecchi theme on Mayo Chiki! though.
Also, they have exactly inverted situations with the main male and female characters.
In Working!!, it's an androphobic girl and a guy with crossdressing-related issues.
In Mayo Chiki!, it's a gynophobic guy and a girl with... crossdressing-related issues.
Both are slice-of-life/romance/comedy series where the characters and the humor are at least slightly absurd. Mayo Chiki! is a lot more ecchi and somewhat more cliche, while Working!! is a little more self-aware. Both are highly recommended, and you should especially give them a try if you aren't too sure based simply on their synopses.  read more
Both are slice-of-life/comedy series set in a restaurant.
Apart from the similar settings, the characters and the humor are also somewhat similar (notably, Chizuru and Yachiyo, Ika Musume and Yamada, running gags involving damaging property, questionable obsessions).
Working!! is a bit more mature overall, although both are highly accessible and enjoyable.
Both are great shows; slice-of-life, comedy, gag genre.
What's most similar between the two is the restaurent setting and the comical feeling it gives!
Both animes surround the lives of the people working in the restaurent...though Shinryaku! Ika Musume is more focused on the antiques of the protagonist while Working!! depicts the relationships among the co-workers...
And ofcourse both are hilarious shows and great to pass time :D
They involve a direction in working at an established food business and focus mainly on the workers with comedic interactions from returning side characters. Even though they have differences in stories, Squid Girl and Working have a lot of similar slice of life scenarios outside of their restaurant focuses.
Although i have only seen one episode of Working!! i must say that similar characters have the same voice (Souta and Shinra ) :D It's like watching Izaya and Shizou from DRRR working together in a cafe.
Using the restaurant theme but actually can take place in any settings, Shirokuma Cafe and Working are pretty much situation comedy that happen to take place in restaurant and coincidentally share the common activity of arubaito (part-time work.)
Shirokuma cafe take a safe route of all-age and genders appeal. I double dare anyone to come up with demographic group that can't watch this.
Working is a male-oriented show that have lots of girls (as usual) and happen to appeal to female too due to it's neutral standing between male and female emphasis. It is made from female-mangaka manga that serialized in late-teen to adult mangazine, but pretty much anyone can read it with no parental advisory.
The idea of working part time at a local place for income and fun becomes an element presented in both series.
It makes a good usage of comedy that is entertaining and has a lot of fun dialogues to inspire humor. In fact, it creates entertainment with the interactions between the main characters at their working environments.
Both series also follows a slice of life like format without a direct linear story; some of the VA are also the same for the main characters in both series.
Both these anime focus on the relationships of a group of people (this is probably true for most anime though): in Ouran it is the 'Host Club' members while in Working it is the part time workers at the family restaurant 'Wagnaria'. Comedy, a variety of characters with distint personalities and quirks, a slow and comfortable pace and episodes following the daily life of the characters (in the Host Club and in the family restaurant) without a strong plot (this is more true for Working!!) are similar elements in both. Ouran has more character development and shows the pasts of the characters while Working!! has a lighter focus on this. Working may seem to have a lot of repitition - Takanashi always gets hit by Inami, chief is always serving the manager - but this is not really a negative aspect because it just shows the daily life at the restaurant which is mostly unchanging. However, we do learn more about the characters, they do develop a little, but that is not really the main focus of the anime.
In general both are fun to watch. You may not necssarily enjoy the other if you liked one, but there is a probability of doing so. Try a few episodes in any case. read more
Ouran highschool or Koukou Host Club has the same relationship (except for the love part) from the girls in Working!! And Haruhi in Ouran. Except Ouran is much more in romance, but i can guarantee if you love Working!! You'll fall head over heels for Ouran!! The comedy in Ouran is priceless as well as the misunderstandings in Working!! The biggest difference besides the romance balance is that while Working!! is held in Wagnaria, a family resturaunt, Ouran is in a prestigious elite, highschool that has their own host club, but instead oa whisky, they have fancy tea and very expensive tea sets. one last thing, is that Ouran can have a few serious moments, but its actually all together a perfect anime for anyone to watch! read more
Both titles are romantic comedies about a group of high school students who get up to all sorts of shenanigans. Also, not really a major plot point, but both involve a cross-dressing main character (Working!! less so than Ouran Koukou Host Club, but trust me, it's still there if you stick with it.) Both are very funny and 100% guaranteed to cheer you up on a bad day!
Similar character design and animation from A-1 Pictures, both shows have considerable amount of slice-of-life part besides the professions, idol-singers and restaurant-staff respectively, the shows deal with.
Both Working and School Rumble have a similar 'atmoshphere' - comedy,random episodes without any real plot (this is more true of 'Working' which is similar to 'Minami-ke' in this respect), peculiar characters and their interrelations. School rumble's characters are a group of students while Working!!'s are the part time workers at Wagnaria. The latter is much more slow paced than the former but that does not really hurt the series's enjoyment. Both have bright and colorful visuals. If you liked one then you will probably enjoy the other as well. Personally I enjoyed Working more than School Rumble.
Different concepts and locations of the stories, but similar atmosphere and character relationships. The interactions between the characters both have a romcom lighthearted theme to it, with subtle love triangles between them and an overall fun feel to it.
Both are hilarious series, have an even amount of male and female characters, and have cute romantic elements. While Working is about restaurant life and Nozaki-kun is school life, they have the same comedic feel and are both very enjoyable.
Working!! has romantic elements, but overall is a comedic slice-of-life journey similar to Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun. The main difference between the two is location. Working!! takes place where the characters work, a family restaurant, while Gekkan is split between working on the manga and school.
Both series are hilarious and have their own qualities for plot, but both are a great series for a comedic slice of life to just sit down and laugh about. They both have their own elements of romance thrown in there.
Both are lighthearted SoL shows with comedy and a little bit of character development thrown in. Joukamachi has a few slightly darker points, but both generally try to keep an upbeat and happy atmosphere.
There are romantic subplots in both of these shows, but the romance is much more prevalent in Working. Joukamachi tends to delve into themes such as family and friends, putting romance to the side save for a couple characters.
Working has no supernatural elements, while Joukamachi has a very central supernatural core with the royal family's powers.
Generally, if you liked one of these shows, you'll find something very similar between them. read more
Working and Joukamachi are both comedies with a happy atmosphere. Katanaishi Souta has four sisters whose characters are various, while Sakurada Akane, the heroine of Joukamachi, has eight brothers and sisters. If you are fond of the big family of the Katanaishi's, you may enjoy that of the Sakurada's. If you like the romance of workers in Wagnaria, you may like that of the Sakurada's and their classmates.
Wait..! The Sakurada's family is not an ordinary one! Their father is a king, and each of children has special powers. Though you may find many similarities between two anime.
Both very funy and fun to watch. The characters are very well made and it will bring you multiple smiles while watching. If you are a comedy lover, Lucky Star and Working! is the anime for you.
Remember: Working 2nd season in going to come out! XD
These anime series are similar to each other because they are both slice of life who don't resort to the school setting. These two shows have a big selection of characters and have really good comedy, characters interactions and even some romance.
Really like this two shows and since that in my opinion they are similar i am making this Recommendation.
Hope it helps someone :)
Working!! and Gin no Saji really bring the best out of the slice of life genre. They're almost like a savory steak, or an awesome bean burrito for those vegetarians. The comedy is like mashed potatoes, it's incredibly enjoyable and it's always next to the main dish; the slice of life. In both of these great stories, the characters progressively develop and transition through different phases of life. They learn and love, and find themselves through hardships. I've always found it hard to articulate how I feel about great animes so I always tell my friends, just watch it! You won't be disappointed! But if anything, watch them both till the end to get a real sense of "maturing" with Hachiken and Katanashi-kun! read more
Both don't have any main plot or anything but just some slice-of-life events that happen everyday. There is a little bit of romance and loads of comedy element in both anime which is the main similarity between them! They only differ in the setting; Working!! is in a restaurant, while Kimi to Boku is in school. Not to mention that I love both anime!
Fast-paced comedy both adapted from 4-koma manga. They managed to fit a lot of gags from original into the anime and also have the enjoyable pace kept. Good work everyone, just please come up with some original joke once in a while, anime team. Those who have read original manga really have a hard time on your show.
Both anime has cute and easy-going atmosphere, also has characters suffer hieght issues. the anime style and the opening song is quite similar.
The main protaginist in both anime is very avarage but gets dragged into the student counsil/cafe by trouble some girls, overall both of the anime are enjoyable.
How can working not be at the top of this list? While "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou?" is a bit more humor and random, and "Working" has some plots, both are heavily about character development, some parody, and hilarious comedy. Working features a larger more diverse cast, each of them with their weird quarks, in an odd atmosphere that you don't think would work too well, but goes well to tie the interactions between the character together. Danshi does this too, but with more randomness in the choice of setting. If one of the boys from "Danshi Koukousei no Nichijou" had a job, they would work at Waganeria, the restaurant in "Working!!" read more
I think they got similar atmosphere ... Like seitokai no ichizon is in this council room and Working!! is in family restaurant. There are also similar characters like Tanashima is similar to Kurimu or Sugisaki is similar to Takanashi ... in their own way. Also has other characters which are alike.
Working!! and Tanaka-kun are easy-to-watch and funny anime centered on the characters and their interactions. Both are slice-of-life, so naturally don't expect to see some overarching plots or action, but instead the cast's lives and all the ridiculous things they do.
If you like Working!!'s characters, you'll probably like Tanaka-kun's too. Miyano is similar to Popura, and Shiraishi's shy girlyness might remind you of Inami. (no punching from Shiraishi though, sorry.)
Every episode of both anime is enjoyable, even if there's something you don't find funny, it's quickly over and on to something else funny. The jokes in both are brilliant, in my opinion.
Tanaka-kun has less romance than Working!!, but it's hinted, so if you're looking for something to ship you might find it. (and Working!!'s doesn't come until much later)
Either one is a great anime to watch, especially when just relaxing or looking for laughs.  read more
Two comedy animes that can be referred to slice of life genres, both animes happen mostly in the cafes their working... Both animes seem to get their punch lines mostly on the worker's "unusual" sides too... If you like that format of comedy of Working, then you might also have fun watching Soredemo...
Both of them are simialar in there comedy. Not in the story line, but both of the comedies have the same feel to them. Both leave you laughing, if you like Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun you'll probably like Working!! and vise-versa.
Also the two character that I think resemble each other are Satou and Kenji both blonde/ same mellow darkish personality.
Both series exhibits the atmosphere of a working environment, the only difference is that the setting of Shirobako take place in an animation industry while the setting of Working!! took place on a Family restaurant.
Both are about a brown-haired guy with glasses who likes children. Takanashi has a fascination towards everything that's small, so people often think he's creepy, while Tsuchida is often mistaken for a pedophile.
These animes follow their respective protagonist's life as they get their first job ever : Hanamaru Youchien takes place in a kindergarten and Working takes place in a family restaurant. Hence, both are related to the comedy and slice of life genres.
Definitely similar style. Especially when you look at the opening sequences. Both really inspired me to go to work. NHK, inspiring me to get a job. And Working!!, inspiring me to keep it and enjoy it. xD *used to work in a cafe*
A guy taking care a girl because of her incapable. Slowly but sure there's a little romantic feelings. More than one lovely couples. Unique/weird personality friends and they almost meet each others everyday. There's a "trap" for each series. And good comedy anime :)
Both shows take place in a restaurant and follow the interaction of those in the work place with those they serve or are familiar with. Ameiro Cocoa takes place in a coffe shop though and Working takes place in a diner. Personally out of the two, I enjoyed Working more, but these two shows gave me a similar feel.
Both rely heavily on absurd, character-driven humor that cause you to bust a gut while rolling on the floor laughing. They also have a bunch of diverse charactors who are good breakaways from traditional tropes.
Both are decent slice of life series with a lot of humour.
There are some characters you will find similarities in their personalities from both series,like Benio from Mikakunin de Shinkoukei is somewhat similar to Kyoko-san from working!!.Like they are always being admired by some yet some finds them stupid.
Both have romance but in this point of view Mikakunin de Shinkoukei has the upperhand.
both Dagashi Kashi and Working are slice of life shows taking place in a work setting(dakashi kashi has a family running a candy shop, and working is everyday life in a restaurant) and have similar character interactions and character traits that make them unique form one another. if you love Dakashi Kashi, you will love Working.
Comedy harem with plenty of possible pairings that appeal to audiences of all taste. Note that this recs focused on possibility of pairing because there are not many solid romance element or author-arranged couple present in both show, allowing audience imagination to runs wild.
Comedy, no clear plot line with a focus on the daily life and interactions of the characters, attractive visuals are some of the aspects both these anime share. Kaichou wa maid-sama has a much slower pacing than Working and might, at times, be rather tiring. The former focuses on the two main characters, Misaki (student council president) and Usui Takumi and their evolving relationship. The other characters are not really given much attention nor are they well developed, though this may apply to the main characters as well. Nonetheless it is fun to watch - a little at a time. Working's characters are more important for the series, and are more interesting and varied. Sometimes there may be too much repetition in their actions but that is also, in a way, its charm: its just the daily life, mostly unchanging. I'd rate Workng higher than Kaichou (mostly because of the characters) but both are enjoyable if watched in moderation (watching several episodes together might be very tiring). read more
Both animes have a 'real life' aspect that is played upon but also riled up. Both set in modern times they focus on characters who may not be the generally accepted 'normal' to society, and show how people like this can connect to each other. Though Working is definitely less serious, I think they hold a lot of a similar feel.
Comedy based, barakamon has better character development for the main lead along with a very good story, in terms of comedy I can`t decide between the two but in terms of story it`s barakamon Hands down...
both are slice of life and both are really enjoyable
The story line is comedic, the cast is rather out there and the animation styles are similar. At first glance they may not appear like series which will appeal to fans of the other series, and yet there is something which can very much appeal to fans either.
Eve and Working make up two of the few restaurant-based animes that I know. Though differing heavily from the dark, mysterious aura of Eve and the light, happy-lappy atmosphere of Working, both animes' main male leads get sucked into their respective environments, discovering a unique array of characters while themselves maturing over time.
The overall atmosphere of both shows come out as very similar to me because they're both slice-of-life comedies that give off a refreshing feeling. While Gugure! Kokkuri-san involves fantasy and the supernatural, Working!! doesn't seem to showcase any of those, but both shows revolve around the daily lives of a strange group of people with peculiar personalities, and there is no deep story or clear plot involved; just pure, fun randomness. Also, some voice actors for the shows are similar (Kokkuri and Satou, Kohina and Yamada, etc.).
I really recommend you guys to watch Natsu no Arashi.
It's kinda the same atmosphere.
The story takes place in a cafe/restaurant.
It's a comedy so you'll laugh as you did in Working, except that there's a little bit of a super-natural thing in Natsu no Arashi but still fun.
The only thing that Working really quite differs in is probably the character design.
Both animes are about some bussiness with many hilarious scenes, funny characters and a kind of romance. Some characters have similarities, like a guy who are always in trouble (Takanashi and Keitaro), a girl who are always punching the protagonist (Inami and Narusegawa), a girl with a sword (Yachiro and Motoko), a girl causing problems to everyone (Yamada and Sarah) and a lazy employee (Kyouko and Haruka).
