Due to his love for small, cute things, Souta Takanashi cannot turn childlike Popura Taneshima down when she recruits him to work for Wagnaria, a family restaurant located in Hokkaido. Takanashi takes particular joy in doting on the older Popura, which only fuels her complex over how young she looks. He also quickly learns he must stay on his toes once he meets the rest of his colleagues, including the katana-wielding floor chief Yachiyo Todoroki, the intimidating head chef Jun Satou, the dangerously well-informed and subtly sadistic sous chef Hiroomi Souma, the adamantly lazy manager Kyouko Shirafuji, and the waitress Mahiru Inami who has a "painful" fear of men.

Powered by an eccentric cast, Working!! is a unique workplace comedy that follows the never-dull happenings within the walls of Wagnaria as Takanashi and his co-workers' quirky personalities combine to create non-stop antics, shenanigans, and hilarity.

I’m only giving this show a 10 because of a dumb joke I made about the Magic Hand bit. My favorite character was Janet (Maya). Being completely serious, this show was actually pretty solid. To quote myself, “Anime has a hard time being funny”, so it’s good to see that this comedy anime is actually kind of funny. The characters are interesting and are definitely the soul of the anime. I was surprised by the recurrence of bits from earlier in the show, which isn’t common with slice of life shows. The background music isn’t bad, despite the low track count, and the art is ...

Mixed Feelings
This first season took me over a month to complete, not because it was especially bad or I didn't have the time... but because it was so... average. There were things that I truly enjoyed about 'Working!!', but each one was counterbalanced by a bad decision that left a disappointing taste in my mouth. This is the first time I've experienced the anime equivalent of an equally balanced scale, equally bad and great.

The story is your run-of-the-mill slice of life, which to give it credit, was what I was looking for, and what I got. After several heavier series I watched this year such as ...

Sigh, i thought this was about a hard woking MC that has to work hard to improve and get what he wants, not about a MC that is beaten constantly and doesn't do anything about it because the explanation is that he is trying to ' heal ' a girl with a male phobia. This girl in question has been hitting males for over 10 years with no improvment but we are expect to believe that hitting the MC will improve her (it doesn't).

Episode 9 was the hit on the nail, shows how the author of this work really hates the male population in ...
