SUMMER ANIME SEASON 2013 PREVIEW: SERVANT X SERVICE (サーバント×サービス)

servant x serviceServant x Service is a comedy show that will begin on July 5, 2013. It will take you into the odd depths of communications and relationships between the people working at a certain office in a city on Hokkaido. The health and welfare section of the local institutions has never been as interesting! The story begins as we meet the members of this team and all the things that bother and interest them during the workdays at the ward.

The original idea comes from the 4-koma manga by Karino Takatsu, which goes by the very same title and was first published in 2009. Since then, it has been seen on the pages of Square Enix’s Big Gangan and the Zoukan Gangan magazines.

The staff ihas worked together, in its greater part, on projects such as Working!! and this show is already getting comments related to the links between the two stories. Nonetheless, nothing officially relates the two anime series when it comes to plot for now.

“Might possibly have a complex towards a certain thing…?” And we complain about fansubs…

I actually like the idea and think it will be more of a sitcom like Working!! – not much of a plot line, more like – “let’s go and see what happens” attitude… Sometimes this is quite enjoyable.
