Servant X Service was very entertaining to watch. I laughed a lot every single episode and enjoyed the plot, the characters and the vibe. This is a brief spoiler-free review.
The tags “comedy”, “slice of life”, and “work life” are right on point. This anime follows a group of individuals who have recently been employed as government workers. Every one of them has a different personality, background and view of life. The story does not have any depth, it is purely to give the audience a good laugh. The anime is not only funny but it is somewhat relatable for anyone that is working in the “real world”. There is no real plot to the story other than Lucy wanting to know what employee approved her name when her parents registered her with the government and Lucy being the object of a co-worker’s affection/love interest.
I loved the animation! It was not anything fancy but the character’s expressions when making a moment particularly funny were amazing. I liked the character’s design and consistency of the animation throughout the story.
The music was not a strong point but considering the nature of the anime, I don’t think this really mattered. The voices for the characters were nice and fitting to their personalities.
I loved every single character in this anime! My favorites being the carefree Yutaka Hasebe and the unique self-proclaimed otaku Megumi Chihaya. I had a lot of fun watching these two do their own thing (not to say the other employees were not fun to watch too). As I stated before, there is not much depth in the story or its characters but what the audience gets to see is sufficient to help the characters become very likeable and relatable to some extent.
I highly recommend this anime to anyone wanting to watch a fun, short anime to relax and have a good laugh. Keep in mind there is not a real plot to it but the characters are very fun to watch J
