THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
I liked the relaxed feeling of this episode and Panda with his simple-mindedness is amusing to watch. OP and ED were pretty creative and surprisingly catchy.

I'm glad they went with realistic character designs for the animals, cutified versions wouldn't have been as charming.

Very relaxed, a couple of chuckles here and there nothing to fancy, noticed a bit of recycled footage they kept on playing.

I like the fact that it's a new and interesting idea and I really like the fact that it has both human and animal characters that interact.

I didn't thought they would really make a zoo part! XD

It's a relaxed anime, but it won't be in my priorities when I'll get busy :S

I don't watch it yet, but I look for seiyu cast and I'm dead XD

Sakurai as polar bear, Fukuyama as panda, Kamiya as penguin, Morikawa Toshiyuki as mama panda and Ono Daisuke as llama XD

I want to watch it! *.* And hear it of course XD

First I was like: "What the hell am I watching?"
And then I was like: "Screw it, it has talking Pandas, Polar Bears and Penguins." xD

It was... weird, but interesting.

o.o I was like: Why am I watching this? but I couldn't stop watching it xD then I realized It has a nice male-seiyuu cast *3*.

That panda is so lazy and cute x3 and the polar bear is cute too but he uses too many puns >.>

It has the 'popular' VA's in this one! XD But I'm not saying it's bad! In fact, these guys have great voices!

Anyways, I am pretty glad it's not 3-10 minute long episodes. Entertaining. :)

I'm sorry but after this first ep, the show was waaay to boring for my taste. I'll admit interesting premise though.

The OP is like super ultra catchy.

It's not what I expected, but I'm definitely interested in seeing where this is going.
Will I fall in love someday? I wonder?

That was a fun first episode, one of the few this season that I actually enjoyed thus far.

Aggressive anteaters never fail to make me laugh.

just thinking
why need to go to the zoo if you can see the animals on the street, buying snacks in convenience store, riding on a train, drinking and eating in a cafe??

Surprisingly entertaining.
But what surprised me the most was the cast, that definitely made the show for me.

I actually really loved it. So far this anime reminds me a lot of some shows I used to watch as a child, which probably makes me enjoy this even more.

It certainly isn't the funniest but is relaxing and cute.




I lol'd when Kamiya Hiroshi spoke.

This is lighthearted, funny stuff. No need to get too serious, just have to relax and have a good laugh.

Love those reactions from Polar and Penguin. xD

Meh, when I first read the description with a polar bear's cafe, where the customers are a penguin and a panda I was really excited, but it turned out to be rather boring tbh ... was expecting something which would make a lot less sense. Putting animals in a show isn't immediately going to make it funny.

Wow! I started this anime without looking at the cast and it turned out to be loaded with amazing seiyuu~
This is exactly what I thought it would be and I love it~
