Servant×Service / サーバント×サービス
SxS has nothing specifically like that. But… In terms of adjective, I’ll say that SxS is fun, refreshing, funny, joyful, a bit boring, romantic and … Can make fans of the characters squeal. What’s unique in this show is that they are all having different personalities: A long-named protagonist who has a talent to ignore sexual harassment, a smooth-talker man who is as charming … , a cosplayer and a low-esteemed supervisor. Servant x Service follows a number of employees in a government office. It’s a setting and premise that would have never even occurred to me, because… well really it sounds like an exceedingly dull place to set an anime.
A setting is just that though and really, stepping back from it’s not like high schools are exceedingly exciting, fun places either in general. It’s certainly unique, and yet its not unique just for the sake of being unique either. The office setting works and helps to highlight the often ridiculous and silly attitudes of the characters. It comes together as something that is strangely refreshing. Servant x Service is generally pretty enjoyable. The humor is far more hit than miss by virtue of some clever writing and, as said before, excellent delivery by the voice actors. It’s helped by the fact that most of the characters are so easy to like and enjoy. I wouldn’t say it’s quite the best slice of life anime out there at the moment, but it is still a good choice.
