Servant x Service

51579lLucy (shortened) Yamagami (CV: Ai Kayano) starts working on the health and welfare section of the ward office to find the one who allowed her full first name and then complain. We follow her and the other newcomers Saya Miyoshi (CV: Mai Nakahara) and Yukata Hasebe (CV: Tatsuhisa Suzuki) and their supervisor Taishi Ichimiya (CV: Takahiro Sakurai) and the temp Megumi Chihaya (CV: Aki Toyosaki) in their daily life at the ward office and the various troubles they come across.

This show is a typical slice of life comedy, except it’s doing its genre well. I was having low expectations for this, as the adaptation of Working!! – by the same author, Karino Takatsu, as Servant x Service – was a disaster in many ways. Kind of a hit-or-miss show. Some people liked it, I was more creeped out. But this was good. At first I found Yukata somewhat creepy. Like, I expected him to be creepy, because I related it to my experience with Working!!.

Luckily I was wrong and had a great time instead! Yukata ended up being my favourite character – I’m sorry I was suspicious of you, Hasebe! – but all of them are really funny. Although, the boss of the welfare department is kind of creepy, in a sense.

As I implied in the synopsis above, the show is mostly about Lucy, but all the mentioned characters are important with different personalities and ways of dealing with their job as a ward office worker. And their love lives at their job.

All in all, this was a very good comedy. But I doubt I would like another season of it. One is enough. (lol)
