Working!!

Working!!

Self-professed lover of all things small and cute, Souta Takanashi finds himself dragooned into working at the Wagnaria family restaurant by the diminutive and vivacious Poplar Taneshima. Though the pay is reasonable and the clientele polite, the high school student is often at his wits' end when dealing with the quirky staff. If the indifferent and street-tough manager, katana-carrying floor chief, and terminally weak Poplar weren't enough, Souta frequently fears for his life, as every encounter with the violently androphobic Inami ends in injury. How long can he survive before the combined stress and harm do him in?

Both of these shows are based off works by the same author, and this is something that is immediately obvious due the similarities between the two series. Each has a similar style of comedy, with plenty of slapstick and quick retorts, as well as similar types of characters. The main difference between the two is that Servant x Service is set in an adult working environment, whereas Working!! is largely populated by teenage characters. Fans of one will definitely enjoy the other, I have no doubt about that.

They both have a really simalar feel and style. In both shows, the characters all seem to have a few problems. If you enjoy one you will enjoy the other!

Karasune Karasune says...

Servant x Service and Working!! are basically the same thing, the only difference is that SxS is set in an adult workplace whereas Working!! is set in a restaurant with young adults and teenagers populating the cast. The comedy, which is basically just friendly banter between the characters, is undeniably similar, and the characters in both are very lively, cute, and pretty eccentric. Fans of one will definitely want to give the other a try.

Very similar shows in their light hearted humour, constant love related issues, caricature characters although Servant x service is a slightly more mature version. They are so similar it's easy to see the same author behind them both. Don't miss either!

If you enjoyed one of these you will most certainly enjoy the other. They are both comedies that take place in the work place. I found both to be very humorous. So if you are looking for something to watched and you enjoyed one I strongly suggest you watch the other.

Hataraki Man

Hataraki Man

28-year-old Hiroko Matsukata is the definition of a workaholic. On top of smoking too much, rarely having sex and having lousy luck nurturing her romantic life, she works excessively to get the job done. Alongside many co-workers at the weekly news magazine Jidai, Hiroko tirelessly works on countless stories – thus negating any chance of a social life. Can Hiroko balance her home and work life, or is she doomed to be a 'working man' forever?

Servant x Service is comedic and Hataraki Man is more  of a drama, but both shows have in common their focus on the life of an adult woman who works in an office setting. If that's what interests you about either show, the other is worth checking out.

HasseRovdjur HasseRovdjur says...

Both shows are about adults at their place of work, though Hataraki Man has much more drama than comedy, while Servant x Service is purely comedic. If you can overcome these differences, or are just interested in the setting, be sure to check the other one out.

Realistic shenanigans in the workplace, revolving around a rare female protagonist? Hataraki Man and Servant x Service are a good match. That being said, Servant x Service focuses far more heavily on comedy.

Both shows involve a female protagonist, in a work setting and have various characters at the work place.

Animation Runner Kuromi

Animation Runner Kuromi

Twenty year-old Mikiko Oguro (known as Kuromi to her co-workers) has just entered the dream job of a lifetime -- animation!

Both anime have a strong focus on comedic workplace antics between co-workers, so people that liked the setting in either one should check the other one out.

Looking for a comedic look at a female's life in the workplace, surrounded by various misfits and employees? These two anime are a good match. 

Brad Brad says...

Both shows are comedies set in the adult workplace, with a female lead character. Supporting characters in each are mainly co-workers of various types. If you appreciated the comedy and/or setting in one, the other may hold some enjoyment for you.

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun

Chiyo Sakura, a high school girl who fell in love with the unrefined boy schoolmate Umetaro Nozaki, decides to be courageous one day and asks him out. Her feelings weren't conveyed properly, and before she knew it she ends up helping a particular job of his as an assistant... The series is a shojo manga boy comedy which centers around Nozaki, a high school boy that is a popular shojo manga artist, and has a story woven by very individualistic characters.

hypnokinesis hypnokinesis says...

First off - there are glaring differences between them, mainly that Gekkan Shoujo has a high school setting while Servant x Service is set in an officeplace. However, both these animes are brilliant character-driven comedies that'll make you laugh until you're in stitches. Each character has their own personality quirk that makes them stand out, and you'll end up loving all of them. The art in both are nice, and it isn't all revolved around romance either (but it's still there!). If you like one of them, give the other a shot.

clowntowncrossing clowntowncrossing says...

While there is a very big difference in the setting (Servant x Service is in an office while Monthly Girls' is in a high school) they're both so funny and goofy and the characters are all dumb in their own ways (in both shows). If you like either of these shows there's a pretty good chance you'd like the other.

Shirobako

Shirobako

Aoi will never forget how she felt the day her high school animation club’s labor of love was shown at the cultural festival. The sense of awe and the feeling of accomplishment that came with completing their very first project are exactly what encouraged Aoi and her club mates to enter the animation industry in the first place. But two years later Aoi has graduated, and now that she works as a production assistant for a big-name animation studio, the daunting reality of her job has somewhat diminished her enthusiasm. Despite the long hours and the punishing schedule, Aoi still hopes to fulfill the promise she and her club friends Ema, Shizuka, Misa, and Midori made: to one day reunite and make a real animated feature of their own as professionals!

Servant x Service has more humor and romance than Shirobako. But both take place in the workplace, both occassionally step outside the lines of reality, and both are fun. The main characters' age group is about the same, too—they're young adults at the start of their careers.

I can't guarantee that fans of one will like the other. But I enjoy both of these, and Servant x Service came to mind while i was watching Shirobako.

YuiYui YuiYui says...

So both of these anime represent how people work in a certain business, both are slice of life comedies surrounding a group of newbies mainly in the company/style of industry. They both reflect ones view of that sort of work well, plus in both there are moments where you can relate to the character. So to some extension I think if you liked one you shall enjoy the other.

very simular animes with the whole offace theme ramance to them. exept 'Love is hard for an Otaku' is passed more around otakus getting together ^w^

clowntowncrossing clowntowncrossing says...

They're both goofy office romcom shows. Wotakoi focuses more on the characters' lives and relationships, while Servant x Service has a little bit more about the characters' work in relationship to their lives and relationships (especially in the first episode).

Wotakoi also has a lot of "inside jokes" for otakus, while Servant x Service is a little more general in it's jokes (you don't really have to get the reference to laugh at the joke if there is one).

Even though Ristorante Paradiso deals with restaurant business and Servant x Service is all about civil servants, both revolve around human interactions. The relationships between the workers, their lives, worries...in both humorous and dramatic way.

Both animes are to do with customer service. They are light and likable.

If you liked one, then you will definitely like the other.

Though while  Servant x Service takes on a more humorous turn, Ristorante Paradiso is more deep and dramatic.

Working'!!

Working'!!

Life at Wagnaria continues as it ever has, with its oddball staff causing more mayhem than ever. While Poplar continues to be plagued by her height complex, Satou takes every opportunity to tease and trick the gullible young waitress. And with Inami continuing to run for cover whenever men frequent the restaurant, Kyouku munching her way through parfaits all day long, and Yamada’s clumsiness massacring the crockery, it’s a miracle that the customers are served at all…

Is Hozuki's iron will - and iron club - enough to keep the afterlife running smoothly?

They say civil service is hell, but in Japan Hell is a lot like civil service. Their approach to comedy is very different, but ServantxService and Hoozuki no Reitetsu are both shows about work life in an administrative office.

Both Maid-sama and ServantxService feature protagonists with similar characteristics/inclinations. The female leads are both somewhat naive and the male leads are both unexpected geniuses. 

If you'd liked one, you'd certainly like the other.
