Servant x Service (DVD) Review

review-servant-x-service-1

Have you ever thought what happened to your favorite anime characters after they graduated high school? Or just about what type of work they might have applied for if he or she didn't go to a university? Well if you have or just want to watch something else, then I think I might have the anime you've been seeking. So if you are used to the high school romance, this anime may not be for you as it is set a few years after that: namely, the great mysterious abyss many academic scholars have come to refer to the "real world."

Servant x Service is an anime that was adapted from a manga by Karino Takatsu, and released by Aniplex of America, which revolves around the lives of public service works in Japan. The anime begins with three new interns Lucy, Miyoshi and Hasebe. They come to Health and Welfare Division of The Mitsuba Ward to apply for work as a public servant (social worker). As you can probably tell, this anime is not like any anime you have probably seen lately. The closest comparison to this anime is the live-action comedy The Office, minus the cameras that follow the cast around, and that the cast works at a place like the DMV. Think of Pam Beesly, Jim Halpert, Michael Scott, Erin Hannon and Toby Flenderson working in a government office but with a few twists like the manager being a stuffed animal, along with other side stories and you get as close as you can to Servant x Service.
