[Ended] Working!: LOL

Last spring, K-ON! sets the new height for comedy animes in general. This spring, while K-ON!! tries again with a longer second season, Working! steals the spotlight.

Working! is built exactly the same way as K-ON! was: semi-random comical events threaded together with a continuous and somewhat organized flow. Although it may look more chaotic due the the new characters it keeps introducing, Working! actually narrows its focus down on a particular pair.

It took me a bit pondering, but ultimately I think Working! actually edges over Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu for the

Best Comedy for Top Half of 2010


Final scoreboard:

Drama: 91 (There are actually quite some)
Comedy: 99 (Brilliant!!!!!)
Action: N/A
Art/Animation: 91 (Cute)
Sound/Music: 92 (Good choice of Op and BGMS)
Character: 95 (Interesting characters)
Plot: 93 (Great for a comedy)
Ending: N/A (I don't think it ends here)

Re-watch value: 90 (Still funny)

Overall: 96 - Brilliantly Funny

Recommendation: It's funny that I don't use this phrase very often yet I'm about to say it for the third time in matter of weeks: If there is only one comedy you watch from top half of 2010, THIS IS IT.
