A Funny Comedy
by grayrally -
Servant X Service is a very funny comedy and while the series comes from the makers of Wagnaria that is no real surprise. But what does stand out is it's unique brand of character development to deliver it's humor. Instead Servant X Service really delves into the lives of people who are in severe arrested development and how their government jobs enables them to stagnate to the point where they never really grow up. And while the humor and running jokes are very reminiscent of Wagnaria, it's the characters that really stand out.
I've been wanting to buy this for a very long time and finally went ahead and bought it. One of the best purchases for me last year and one the better anime I've seen in a while.
This is a very nice slice of life comedy about several people working in a government service company. What really makes it stand out is all the different characters and their wackiness and how they deal with the workplace. It's also good in that while this series focuses on the government work place, it also allows the viewer to see how they live outside of the workplace as well along with their love lives.
Given this is another Aniplex release, you know you're getting a top notch release and that's exactly what you're getting with 12 episodes spread out over 3 DVD discs so the quality really shines unlike those series that's over only 2 discs.
A relateable comedy

This anime you can relate to if you have a job that involves interacting with people. I love it so much I am trying my hardest not to give away any spoilers. I will say this anime is a perfect clean way to liven up a boring day, or cheer you up on a melancholic one. The price may be a little steep if it's not on sale but it is worth it. With lively recognizable/relate-able characters, simple stories (reminiscent of the anime Lucky Star), and a two volume manga series that is available at the time of this review makes it a must have in my opinion. *still fighting not to give away spoilers*
