Plot Summary: It follows a lion, lizard, and toucan as they live the lives of office workers in a capitalist society in Japan, while also dealing with their unique situations as animals living beyond the savanna and the food chain.

First Thoughts: No, this show isn’t a direct copy of Aggretsuko and I know there’s another new anime similar to this (BEASTARS). Yes, it has some similarities like the whole corporate office thing but it’s nothing like that……and that means I’m holding nothing back because this is WEAK!!! You think at first we’re getting into the first character introduced being the Lion but nope, it goes to the Toucan and Lizard with the situations like the subway on how these high school girls (Well, a gorilla and pig and they’re cast as ‘ugly’) accusing Toucan of sexual harassment and Lizard doesn’t think so because he explains he’s into MILFs more and his tail gets ripped off.

Yeah, another problem is that it didn’t need to be the full 23 minute format. I was drifting to sleep with the second half of this and I could describe what I did see but it doesn’t vary much in terms of humor. The art style is fine and all but I’m not sure if this is going to stick with me.

LOW-ASS PRIORITY WATCH (That or wait for the dub)

 

I’m MAK2.0 aka The Blue Hybrid and maybe comparing this to Aggretsuko is insulting…..Aggretsuko is actually funny and entertaining.
