Working!!! episode 05

I am running out of time again and am forced to keep this post short, which is alright, seeing as this episode was surprisingly predictable. I believe I already said most of it during last week’s post, so no point in continuing that.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 05 [720p].mkv_snapshot_15.40_[2015.08.03_23.30.15]Our protagonist’s emo sister decided to set the anime world’s most violent girl up for a blind date with her brother. Both of them had no idea whom they were meeting, but things got pretty interesting when they did meet. I mean, Inami basically confessed and I’m sure that dense idiot finally picked up on that. I don’t know how he’ll deal with it, but he’ll probably pretend as though he doesn’t know.

I won’t even start about that Yamada nonsense. I don’t care what she eats. I’m more interested in seeing that idiot’s mother for once. It’s about time that she showed up. We know almost nothing about her, yet she appears to be one of the important characters. I would probably trade her for Yamada at this point. I’m kind of getting tired of her.

Working!!! episode 04

Another interesting episode. I find that these episodes can be quite misleading when it comes to the Working series. You think something’s about to happen due to the amount of progress some characters seem to be making, only to feel betrayed afterwards.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_06.51_[2015.07.28_00.06.47]So Jun and Yachiyo’s relationship has been progressing quite nicely since last week. Yachiyo knew that there’s a girl that Jun likes, she just doesn’t know who that girl is, which makes it a little harder for her to approach him. She realizes that she doesn’t want him to be just a friend anymore. She wants something more, but she doesn’t know what that is. She’s socially quite awkward and doesn’t know much about relationship or love in general, which only ends up making things harder. We’ve reached a point where I want it to be over with; let them become an item already. It’s been long enough.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 04 [720p].mkv_snapshot_18.00_[2015.07.28_00.07.01]The unexpected twist during this episode was when souta started to see Mahiru a little differently. He thought that she was cute, even though, in his mind at least, only adorable things (like children and little animals) are usually the only things he finds cute. Quite the interesting development no matter how you look at it.

But hey, it’ll probably be like Jun and Yachiyo; it’ll be milked until it completely stops being funny. That whole awkwardness between Jun and Yachiyo stopped being funny last season, so I wonder how fast this will stop being funny. There really aren’t a lot of possibilities when we’re talking about a girl that doesn’t like to communicate with people from the opposite sex.

Working!!! episode 03

I never thought I would say this about a Working episode, but this one turned out to be quite productive. I can’t remember the last episode where any of the characters made any progress on the romance front.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_07.46_[2015.07.20_23.33.07]I never quite understood why Souta’s sister kept showing up at the restaurant. All she does is drink and screw around with pretty boys. She even decided to give poor Yachiyo some poor advice; to buy new underwear before she went out drinking with Jun-kun. Not every girl spreads her legs like she does. I wonder why Souta doesn’t just speak up for once, seeing as he knows that his sister likes sleep around after a couple of drinks. Just do the usual; hold an intervention and send her packing to one of those clinics that help people with addictions like that.

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 03 [720p].mkv_snapshot_20.22_[2015.07.20_23.33.25]I don’t even want to focus on Aoi’s desire to be petted by Souta nowadays. Nor do I want to focus on Hiroomi’s disturbing desire to constantly mess around with his colleagues. He wanted to stalk Jun on his date so badly… How sad is that!? That guy needs to stop being so damn nosy otherwise he’ll never make any friends.

But yeah, Jun and Yachiyo finally went on a date. I doubt that Yachiyo sees it as such, but that hug at the end was quite something! To most this doesn’t mean a thing, but to Working fans this means quite a lot. We all know how big a step that is for those two. Yachiyo doesn’t know a thing about love and Jun normally doesn’t know how to deal with it. It’s about time…

Working!!! episode 02

Working deserves to be review, no matter how you look at it. It’s arguably the jewel of this season. Ah…  How I wish I could just watch all of the episodes in a row right now. To think that I will have to wait week after week for every episode…

[HorribleSubs] Working!!! - 02 [720p].mkv_snapshot_03.08_[2015.07.13_23.43.16]This episode really brought up a big question mark. We don’t really know much about Souta, do we? We know that his father was, just like Souta is now, a messed up guy that likes cute things and dressed up his son like a girl. The guy had no chance. But we know nothing about his mother, only that he doesn’t seem to be interested in having her around.

This just makes me curious. His mother sent over some guy, whom turned out to be Kazue’s ex-husband, to check up on her children. How messed up is that!? She pretends to care about them, yet she doesn’t seem to care enough to come in person. What kind of job does she have? What happened between them? Why did Kazue marry that pervert in the first place? So many questions…

Working!!!

Dear mother of god, thank you! I have been waiting years for this! The second season ended in 2011 or early 2012 I believe and there hasn’t been any news until last year. I am so glad that the third season is finally here!

Working!!!The artwork is just superb. The characters look great, the level of detail is very high and I can honestly say that I wouldn’t change a single thing about it. I could pick Popura-chan out if a line-up any day of the week.

The story is what gets to you. It gets so predictable; will Aoi ever be reunited with her brother? Will Jun ever confess his love? Will husband and wife ever be reunited? Every time it seems to happen, yet something always goes wrong in the end. It makes you go crazy, and yet you keep watching…

I can honestly recommend this show. It is so funny and so entertaining that I would gladly consider writing about it. It’s so much fun to watch.

Plot Summary: Life goes on at the Wagnaria family restaurant as its peculiar employees try to provide a good service despite their individual eccentricities.
