Working!!! episode 13

This was incredibly weird. Why do these Japanese have so much trouble with pushing out decent endings? They have been spending half of this season tying up loose ends and then they end it like this… What the hell!?

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 13 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.52_[2015.09.28_23.28.29]I thought that Mahiru was finally going to catch a break. It was her turn to get a little bit of happiness and the same goes for Souta, even though his mother was still around with her nose in his business. I thought for sure this was going to be it when I saw Mahiru’s father show up like that. I got even surer of it when I saw Souta’s mother spying on him.

In the end both of them are still friends and both of them still don’t really know about each other’s feelings yet. I mean, I’m sure they actually know, but nothing’s set in stone yet. They haven’t actually started dating or anything. How is that a good way to end this season? I know there’s an OVA or something coming up, but I have been told that this was the final season…

Working!!! episode 12

I’m pretty sure I can say this on behalf of anime fans everywhere when I say that this episode was just ridiculously disappointing. The ending better be damn amazing because this episode was just not worth watching.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 12 [720p].mkv_snapshot_19.46_[2015.09.21_23.17.08]It’s simple. I can summarize this episode with just one sentence, but I just don’t understand why it even aired in the first place. An entire episode of watching a lolicon dress as a girl because his mommy is looking for the girl that he has a crush on. For the love of… Just get to the damn point already. We’ve been tying up loose ends for weeks now and it’s been great. Hell, it’s been fantastic. All that’s left is for that guy to get himself a girlfriend or something. At least give us something other than a ridiculous episode that contributes absolutely nothing to the story. I cannot believe I waited a whole week and all that I got was this…

Working!!! episode 11

Victory at last! It’s kind of disappointing that the Working series are about to come to an end, but it is better this way. I was starting to get a little annoyed by things going wrong at the very last second with pretty much everything.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 11 [720p].mkv_snapshot_11.00_[2015.09.15_22.58.03]There is really very little that I want to say about this episode. I have said most of it during the past few weeks. I’m just glad that Jun finally managed to muster the courage to confess to Yachiyo, the one girl that has haunted his dreams, after keeping it to himself for four years. What can I say? It’s about damn time!

It’s kind of disappointing that he got himself a stomach ache after he told her. I wouldn’t have minded if the pace was a little faster. I mean, would it really be that much trouble to squeeze in a date? Just four minutes’ worth would’ve been fine. I suppose a long hug will have to do for this week’s episode. I just can’t wait to see what happens next week.

Working!!! episode 10

Well, the character that I’ve been waiting for has finally arrived and now that she’s here I feel kind of disappointed. It is no exaggeration to say that I expected a lot more from that character. A whole lot more.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_08.08_[2015.09.07_23.27.15]This character puzzles me. She’s supposedly this amazing politician with a lot of power and responsibility, yet she shows up in the middle of the night like its normal and pretty much raises hell. I mean, she completely neglects her children and her personality is so much worse than any of her children. That novelist is a big hypochondriac, the eldest is a tight-fisted sadist, the middle child is a loose alcoholic, the son is a messed up guy that might be a lolicon and that leaves the youngest of them all… She’s normal compared to the rest. She’s responsible and doesn’t seem to have any weird quirks.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 10 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.19_[2015.09.07_23.27.44]At this point I have no idea what that women will do when she finds out that her future daughter-in-law likes to punch men because she’s afraid of them. That woman is unpredictable since we don’t know anything about her yet, so I have no idea how she will react when she finds out. If she ends up finding out.

As for our protagonist; good for him. He’s aware of his feelings and he decided to give it a try. I have no idea how he’ll approach the subject, but I’m sure he’ll find a way to screw it up. My guess is that she will find out thanks to one of his sisters or thanks to his interfering mother. Either way; I think the ending is promising.

Working!!! episode 09

This episode was kind of disappointing. There were two nice developments but they took up only a small part of this week’s episode. The rest was just either unnecessary or uninteresting. For a second there I thought we were going to take a step back again after that woman suddenly disappeared once again.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 09 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.01_[2015.08.31_23.28.58]The second biggest item has to be that Souta’s oldest sister got back together with her insanely masochistic ex-husband. I’m kind of happy for her. The guy is a real handful, but I think they could make it work since Kazue does seem to be interested in him for some odd reason. She does strike me as the type of person that likes to beat people up.

The biggest event has yet to come; Souta’s mother, whom turns out to be a well-known politician, will be coming back home to check up on her kids. I have no idea if she’s there to stay, but I honestly am happy about it. I want to know more about her. This just goes to show that this is definitely going to be the last season; everything is getting wrapped up. No loose ends.

Working!!! episode 08

I should’ve known better. I thought that we’d see less of Aoi now that she’s been reunited with her family. Not only did nothing change, we actually get to see both her mother and her brother more than ever, even though I care for neither one of them.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_09.08_[2015.08.24_23.28.54]I suppose the headline is still Souta’s increasing interest in Mahiru. He keeps thinking about her and I think he’s close to admitting once and for all that he likes her. He, a so-called adult, likes someone his age instead of ‘cute’ things. I’m sure this will continue for a few more weeks before something actually happens. If something even happens. But anyone can tell that they’re planning to end it all with this season. I doubt we’ll get to see a fourth Working season after this. They are really wrapping things up at an incredible pace now.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 08 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.18_[2015.08.24_23.29.08]I am also starting to think that we’ll never get to see Souta’s mother. She’s been a big mystery throughout the series and there are a lot of questions that involve her. That is why I will be really disappointed if none of those questions get answered. Their relationship is still too much of a mystery at the moment.

I’m guessing that Jun and Yachiyo will get their turn before Souta and Mahiru. They have been going back and forth since the beginning. In fact, I would not be surprised if they started on that next week. Yamada has been reunited with her family, Otoo-san has his wife back and even Popura is growing a little. Things are ending after all this time…

Working!!! episode 07

Quite a few things happened during this episode. I think that this is going to be the last Working season. They are clearly finishing things up this season. No more waiting, no more nonsense. They seem to be getting straight to the point.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_10.36_[2015.08.17_23.51.49]I didn’t expect it. Aoi’s mother showed up at the restaurant and things got a little weird. I mean, it’s safe to say that Aoi likes to exaggerate and lie. Nevertheless, her brother both showed up to get her to come home after all this time. So what if her mother doesn’t speak and that her son had to relay her thoughts somehow. I’m more focussed on this ridiculous twist that she turns out to be a colleague of Souta’s mother. These coincidences are really boring and not very creative. I can only hope that this ends the Yamada chapter.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 07 [720p].mkv_snapshot_17.07_[2015.08.17_23.51.57]Also, that old man finally got reunited with his long-lost wife. It took them three seasons but they finally found each other again. I guess I won’t have to pull my hair out again every time something comes between them. Unless she runs off again, in which case I will go completely bonkers. Just handcuff her somewhere in the kitchen or something.

I can only hope that Souta’s mother shows up soon. They are tying up loose ends and she is definitely one of the biggest ones. I’m also fine with Souta getting together with that man-hater, but I’m more interested in knowing more about his family situation. His mother sounds like quite a handful. I just can’t wait to see her.

Working!!! episode 06

Dammit all! I am still short on time due to an unbearable amount of work, so I have to keep yet another post short. This time it does matter. There’s a lot I want to say about this episode, most of which will not be said this week.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 06 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.13_[2015.08.10_23.52.19]I think the major issue here is the protagonist’s realisation that he’s falling in love with the one girl that kept using his face as her personal punching bag. I find that very interesting since I simply cannot see those two together. I just don’t think that the two of them are compatible, even though if he’s the only guy that she’s comfortable with.

Now, I think it’s about time that Aoi, formerly known as Yamada, was finally reunited with her brother. I mean, she was still acting like a spoiled brat and refused to go home. I doubt anything will change. I’m sure that weird character, her so-called brother, will be showing up a lot more often now that he knows where she is, but I think very little will change.
