…I started another anime ^_^;
Who knew I’d ever end that sentence with such an emoji…
Anyhoo, I sorta felt like watching a random slice of life sort of anime, and then I remembered that Working!! had gotten a third season this Summer, so I took a look at it from the beginning.
And that’s how I kinda saw all of the first season and half of the second. Ehehe… (At least each season is only single cour!)
There’s not a single normal character working in this cute story set in a family restaurant. Add in love triangles, “ideal family” relationships (and the lack of them), and all the quirks you get an entertaining little anime that makes you smile if not laugh :3
Taneshima speaks to me with her constant struggle for not looking her age and being so short. YOU ARE NOT ALONE, POPURA!! But even I’m not that short, so…it does make me feel a little better to know I’d probably tower over her if were were able to compare heights :’D
Takanashi, not gonna lie, kinda creeped me out when he was first introduced. He just acted incredibly shady around poor Taneshima and I was like- “ruuuuun! This loony’s about to kidnap you!!”But he didn’t. Thank gosh.
I reeeeaaally wanna talk about this one character though- lookie in the first picture. You see how there’s that one dark haired girl way in the back? With glasses? Look, she’s there- I swear. Yeah, her.
The anime shows her interacting with the customers in background shots, and working her normal waitress job all the time, but they not once introduce you to her until the absolute freaking LAST episode of season 1! Aaargh, talk about infuriating!! They introduce all the workers and focus on their interactions so it was rather strange that they never really show you her until then. She also apparently keeps her distance from all the other workers because she thinks they’ll “taint” her normalcy xD The funny part is, one, she’s not wrong, and two, she isn’t normal either! But she’s convinced she is. Oh well.
Then there’s this gem.
Satou-kun, you are the bomb. So you can get a lot from this picture even xD He’s super cool and nice, but he also bullies Takeshima whenever Yachiyo (the one with the katana) puts him in a bad mood by gushing over Kyouko. Now, why would he care? Because love triangle. Duh. Satou fancies Yachiyo, but Yachiyo fancies Kyouko. And Kyouko…her heart, much like her stomach, is filled with food and only food.
But oh my gosh, can’t Satou please get with Yachiyo?! The poor bloke totally deserves it by now!
There’s so much more to ramble on about. I’m a little curious about Yamada’s actual story- like, not how she’s very pathetically lying about having run away from home. But her determination to find her own ideal family is insane, especially since she keeps attacking Otoo-san to bring her back adoption papers so she can be his kid xD
And Souma! He’s like one of my favourite characters. Seriously, he’s up there with Satou. He’s so evil, but he is so cordial and polite, it’s terrifying! He seems like he’d be friendly, but just as Takanashi learned, all it takes is half a conversation for one to truly realize how diabolical this guy really is. Inspirational ❤ Just kidding! But I do love to see it so much :3
Inami orginally really repulsed me and irked me SO MUCH. But she’s sorta alright now. I think. Meh. But you know which characters till are very ugh-inducing? Takanashi’s family -___- Well, everyone except Nazuna. Though we all know she’s about to grow up to be the evilest of them all, just as Takanashi envisioned.
And Takanashi cross dressed xD Oh my gosh, that’s hilarious!
Okay, that’s about it on this 😀 Imma go back to finishing season two. Then maybe I’ll continue Akagami no Shiryuki-hime? I’m not sure about that…but it’s getting a second season this Winter! Ugh, what to do, what to do? Then there’s Gate too…
Meh, one thing at a time, for now! So, back to Working!! season II :3
