www.Working!!

Feb 5, 2017

Positive

*Just like the original series also WWW.Working!! was a very fun and relaxing series. Its straightforward humor, simple animation and not very complicated characters made that you don't really have to think whilst watching this series. And that's a good thing from time to time, to be able to just sit down, watch an anime and just enjoy it without too much commotion. So in that concept, this new series resembled the old series a lot. It was a constant flow of skits and gags.

Negative

*But this anime wasn’t completely like the old thing. Although it wasn’t bad, it was less interesting than the original series. Like overall WWW.Working!! interested me less than the original Working anime. The comedy was less interesting, the romances that developed were less interesting and what bothered me the most was that the main female character Miyakoshi got way less development than her original counterpart Inami. 

Inami went from a completely shy and man-hating girl to a social someone who started to understand what loving means. With Miyakoshi I didn’t have that feeling, she didn’t go through that development and stayed pretty much the same throughout the anime. Also the other characters were less interesting, their stories were less interesting. In the original series I created a bond with the characters whilst here I did not.

*And another thing was that I felt that some of the storylines were rushed and incomplete. For me the best example was Nagata. The anime could have done so much more with her being the love rival for Miyakoshi. But the anime didn’t do anything with her. Another storyline that did some twisted things was the one of Shiho and Yuuta. Here I felt that rushness towards the end of the story where Shiho changed personality really fast. The stories that were told in this anime were too numerous and too complex to be told in a rush. They could have easily been main storylines in their own anime.

Conclusion

So as a conclusion, WWW.Working!! was a good addition to the Working franchise but in my opinion it wasn't as good as the original. The 3 seasons of Working amused me more, the comedy was more my thing and the romance was way stronger and one of the best things of those 3 seasons. So this new season was ok but not amazing so overall I'm going to rate WWW.Working!! at 3 stars. The fans of the series can give this a try but don't expect it to be the same as the original series. And to those that haven't watched this franchise yet, I advice to watch the 3 original seasons, you'll get more bang for your buck.
