How is it that Working managed to be a great series from start to finish?
I feel like it's fairly rare for a series to maintain its quality like it did through three seasons.
Everything it tried to do, it did well. It was a dry comedy show with character development. And that's all it tried to be.
Sometimes a show is better for doing less. Most shows (not just anime) try to be the extreme of either too much shit or not enough content. This show just hit the middle ground. A good example is mai waifu, who really was just a mascot character and not vital to the show at all. But they didn't try to shove in a love plot or force her into scenes. So it worked.
All that said, its hardly the best show ever. Its in my top 20 for sure, but season 1 had some bumps and the Yamada focused episodes in Season 3 were downright stupid.
This. So many times these days Japanese authors are trying to pull some shit to 'be unique' or 'surprise the reader/watcher'. This usually ends up turning out to be something completely fucking retarded and ruining everything.
Working made it clear what it was at the beginning, and it kept true to that while keeping things interesting with developing relationships and small side plotlines.
It's the old Turtle and Hare story.
Too bad because season 2 is the biggest improvement I've ever seen in an anime series. Fixed literally everything wrong in season 1, while improving what it did right.

Can I get some webms from the finale please? I managed to miss it when it aired.
Seasons one and two were pretty good. Season three was a non-stop train of literally everything the fans wanted, actual resolution, and they even brought SOME WAN back for the finale. I can't remember the last time a series ended that well. Hell, most series don't even have anything resembling a decisive finale that wraps up plot points, especially romantic ones.

Popura spin off never.
Introducing Yamada was the worst thing to happen, who wanted an autistic girl? Should had been a beautiful Christmas cake that fools around Souma but actually works under Katanashi's mom.

About 1/3 the fanbase. Genki girls who demand attention are one of the most used personalities in anime.
I don't like it either. But you can't fault the writer for using a common archetype. Especially since every character in the show fits such an archetype.
Nazuna was Yamada without the annoying attention whore aspect.

One of us has shit taste, but it isn't me. Go to bed, you loser.
What's your big idea, having Gundams on the next season of Silver Spoon?
Autism doesn't give you good taste, you know?
Because it was just a normal show that never tried to be crazy
This show needed more of Sato going to town on Yachiyo's pussy
I wish we had more Maya, but I guess the paucity of her character is what made her great.
>mfw she's the most relatable character and I've been in her situation when I used to do catering during college
>mfw everyone around me was a shit, and I just wanted to get work done.
>its a shaky camera with hammy acting
Oh wait. That's every episode of The Office.
>Great from start to finish
Season 1 started great and then the quality dropped as it went on and was by far the weakest season. Season 2 was all around great, and season three started weak and then got better as it went on with the special finale being a great conclusion to the series.
It was a great series all around, but it wasn't without its ups and downs.
Because the source material is good and the studio did good work at adapting it.
Nowadays lots of source material is simply horrible, so when there's something good for a change it stands out.
>Source material didn't just magically start getting bad recently.
No, but LNs weren't such a big thing in the past, and the hikkikomori manchildren weren't such a dominant target audience.
Just got around to watching the hour long finale a few days ago. Was surprised it how good it wrapped everything up. Definitely GOAT ending material.
>higher than yamada
kill yourself you fucking faggot
I wish to move on already, but I can't. Not right now.
>Working is over
>Servant x Service S2 never

I can't see the bridge, for the rain in my eyes.
