Default 35th G-View: Working!!

Hello and welcome to G-Views, where SoL reigns supreme, moe is respected and Dokuro-chan sucks poopie. Ever wonder what it felt like working in a restaurant filled with strange employees everywhere you turn? Well this show is for you, so step on-board the G-Express as we take a ride to the restaurant, Wagnaria, and review Working!!


Genres: comedy, slice of life
Themes: Workplace
Number of episodes: 13
G-Rating: 8/10


Plot Summary:
Set in a family restaurant in Hokkaido, the northern prefecture of Japan, 16 year old high school student Takanashi Souta works part-time along with his strange co-workers: Taneshima Popura, a high school girl who's a year older than Souta who's easily mistaken for a elementary/middle schooler, and Shirafuji Kyoko the 28-year old store manager who doesn't bother to do any work at all.
Sōta Takanashi found himself working in Wagnaria, a family restaurant run by Kyōko Shirafuji, the Manager; who cares more about her employees welfare than the customers. Along with the manager, Sota works with other co-workers that expresses unique personalities: Poplar Taneshima, whom has a height complex, Mahiru Inami, diagnosed with androphobia, Yoshiyo Todoroki, the chief that carries a katana, Jun Satō, the man with love trouble and Hiroomi Sōma, the gossip king.


This show was a real treat. It'll make you laugh your head off because of how hilarious it is. Each character has their own way of making you laugh and the best part is: No fanservice based jokes at all. It's all freshly baked laughs. If I do have one thing to complain about this show is that it's too short, but hopefully based on the season finale, there's hope for a 2nd season.

The music is both catchy and addictive, especially the OP.

If there were a plot on this show, it would probably be a developing romance, a confusing and twisted romance, but one nevertheless, between the male lead and a certain androphobic.
My favorite and most noteworthy character is Yamada Aoi? Why? You'll have to witness her awesomeness for yourselves in order to understand.

Final Verdict: Sure the review for this show is a short one, but to be honest, I can't think of any complaints at all. This is a must watch for everyone who needs a good laugh.

I'm adding as many OP songs as I can to all my earlier G-Views as well from 1 to 34. So check them all out later if you like.

Good review. It's quite a fun show that most of the humour is built around the character interactions and situations rather than relying on fanservice or parodies of other shows. Loved the show and the characters. I wish there was more episodes. Hopefully there will be a season 2

I Would love to see how the relationship between Takanashi and Mahiru Inami develops


Also the Openeng theme is really catchy and the ending theme is a good song too.

I just Watched all of this last night. I like how simple the concept is, how epic the characters are, and how this is the kind of thing that would never get written in america.

People over here would be like "A show about a restaurant crew? nah, no one wants to watch that."

This show just goes to show you that with good enough characters, the setting that it all takes place in doesn't need to be epic.

Inami

I do have one complaint (and perhaps it was the site and not the vid, but I don't think so.)
For some reason they had these huge ads in the show and a wall of Japanese Text would pop up during some scenes. It's not bad enough to warrant not watching the show, just annoying.
