Fall Anime 2011: Working’!!

Posted by Neko Kyou in Thoughts on November 15th, 2011

Working!! was one of the more enjoyable anime from last year, and fortunately the second season showing this season is following the same formula.The biggest difference between Working’!! (2nd season) with the first season is the color palette used.

Working is a light comedy taking place mostly in the family restaurant Wagnaria. Each member of the cast has a whacky personality, such as the main character’s obsession with anything small and cute (including his tiny senior), an air head waitress who carries around a katana (freaking out all the customers) and a cook with the most innocent looking face, but with the most evil thoughts (my favourite character!).

The second half of the first episode was rather disappointing and had me worried that the new season won’t be able to live up to its predecessor. Fortunately, it picked itself right up from the 2nd episodes onwards so for that I’m really glad!

If you’ve never watched Working before, I suggest you go back and start from the first season before starting on the new season. Even though it’s a light hearted comedy that can be easily picked up, you won’t be able to appreciate the finer, subtler running jokes without knowing it’s history.

I still think the first season’s OP was one of the best from last year and the animation sequence still heavily reminds me of Azumanga Daioh.

You can see the resemblance below:

Working’!!’s OP – Coolish Walk, while is still catchy, is nowhere near the level of “Someone Else”.

Go Go Maniac & Someone Else – Best OPs This Season

First of all, what’s with the “!!” this season? K-ON!! and Working!! both uses it, and they’re also both the topic of this post today…

K-ON!! Go Go Manic is definitely the best OP this season – love the 360 camera angle even though it freezes when I try to play the HD version of the OP on my PC (need a damn new PC just to watch anime smoothly)

The ED is top notched as well, but I feel it’s not on the same level as Don’t Say Lazy.

Working!! has a very catchy OP, and I swear that it reminds me of Azumanga Daioh’s OP!

I showed it to a few others and got the same reaction. Does it remind you of Azumanga?
