Working!! Half Season Review [Completed]
Man, I don’t even remember what happened in this show besides SOMEWAN WAN WAN… I thought it might have been weird, watching the show from episode seven without remembering anything that happened before, but boy was I wrong, because one episode and I was totally sucked into the show again. Does it say something when a show is able to do this, to create such a continuity between episodes that even after a 17-month break, the characters still stood out as they did seventeen months ago?
…Nope, I guess not, cause that happens with every show I watch after a seventeen month break. Which is this one.
That’s how long ago it was – so long ago, that in fact, this was my /first ever/ Half Season Review post (sixty-one others have been published after that one, not counting this), and third anime (after Angel Beats and Durarara!!) that I ever watched! I feel so old (young?) right now…
So why am I writing this now? To get ready for Working’!!, of course. Expect no more half season reviews after this for some while, as I’m not even finished watching the rest of the first episodes of this season. I have watched the second episode of Mirai Nikki, though, but that was in Anime Club and I was eating butter chicken which tasted more like… well, it actually did taste like butter chicken. Just sayin’
I guess I really have nothing else to say because I’m STRAPPED ON TIME
NO TIME TO SPARE
MY DAD IS COMING HOME
AND MY MOM HAS TIED HER HAIR
STRAPPED ON TIME
NO TIME TO WASTE
MY DAD IS COMING BACK
AND I’VE GOT TO MAKE SOME HASTE
ok this is lame, I’d make a ‘lame rhymes’ tag but I’m too lame/lazy to do that so I won’t. Besides, what kind of tag is ‘lame rhymes’?? doesn’t make sense :(
So this other employee, I totally saw her in episode 11 BEFORE SHE WAS EVEN INTRODUCED. Since she’s another employee, that means that there must be other employees in Wagnaria that aren’t featured in the show. Since the show’s main characters only ever interact with each other, that means that they are IN A SOCIAL CLIQUE and EXCLUDING EVERYBODY ELSE from their little CIRCLEJERK. There’s a reason a circlejerk ends with jerk, and that’s because everybody inside is a JERK. And so is everybody else in the show.
But then she was introduced as another JERK inside their little CIRCLE and wait, what?! YOU DON’T INTRODUCE A CHARACTER IN THE FINAL EPISODE! Were these producers that fucking full of themselves, sure that they would get a second season? Well, you know what?! FUCK YOU AND YOUR FUCKING ANIME. I’m not going to watch this fucking SHIT and what am I even saying Working’s a decent show
By decent show, I mean it’s not even a pretty nice show. I came here expecting comedy, and what did I get? A romance. WITHOUT COMEDY. On the comedy scale, Nichijou would be like super-high tier, and then there’s things like Yuru Yuri which was pretty awesome, and then Ika Musume. At the bottom of the bottom is Working!!. It barely manages to hang on to the scale. There are other shows that are less funny than it, but no other comedies.
The saddest thing is that you can SEE the producers TRYING, their SWEAT AND BLOOD AND TEARS being POURED on to EVERY FRAME, but IT DOESN’T WORK. I swear, I did not crack a single laugh during this entire half season. You know those comedies that feel like lukewarm water, where you never actually laugh, but only sometimes smile inside your head a little bit because you can see that the creator is trying to make it funny? Yeah, that’s what Working!! was. A comedy that doesn’t make you laugh… what a failure.
Then again, it is Working!!. Nobody has fun at work. You just can’t create an office-related comedy. It’s ridiculous and impossible and fat and luminescent and combustible.
Oh well. Better than some shit I’ve seen.
Overall Rating: 4/10
P.S. I haven’t seen much shit. I don’t watch terribad anime for the sake of watching terribad anime.
I watch terribad anime for the sake of blogging terribad anime
P.P.S. HEY THE DAY BEFORE YESTERDAY (November the 3rd) WAS TAKE YOUR CHILD TO WORK DAY, I TOTALLY FOLLOWED IN THE FOOTSTEPS OF MY GLORIOUS MOTHER AND FATHER BY HARNESSING THE TRUE ASIAN SPIRIT OF ANCIENT ACCOUNTING POWERS
P.P.P.S. The ending was as lame as the ending for this post. An ending that reintroduces every single character again in some lame, impossible situation… MEANS THAT THE PRODUCERS ARE COMPLETELY CERTAIN THEY’LL GET A SECOND SEASON. WELL, GUESS WHAT? FUCK YOU, YOUR SECOND SEASON WILL BOMB AND YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HANDLE IT AND YOUR CHILDREN WILL CRY OVER YOUR EXPLODED BODY
P.P.P.P.S. exploded body
