I'm not really feeling this one.

The intro left me feeling really bad and pretty much ruined the whole anime for me. I might have enjoyed this show if Gabriel was already a worthless person(angle) to start with like Tomoko Kuroki, But watching a good person throw their life away like that was really depressing and sad to watch. That might have worked if this was a drama, but it's clearly not. This is coming from an actual high school drop out mind you. So I might end up dropping this, but we'll see. It's just kind of hard to watch.

i avoided watching working!!1 for along time just because of the title. turns out i never should have watched it, the first two seasons were good (first good, 2nd just OK), but the 3rd season was so awful the it more than counterbalanced the goodness of the first season and made the whole affair a net negative.

I think it's charming.

For one, I don't really blame her for dropping out of her life as an angel. The people surrounding her seem exhausting. It's a funny show, her reaction to the situation she is in is realistic and without fault.

I dropped out as well but I have no regrets. The situation was shitty, I was riddled with anxiety/depression issues and school just wasn't for me. There's stuff like the general equivalency program to fix that.

Watamote and Umaru are similar but different, there is more of a fantastical plot here.

I would prefer her feet to be bare, but otherwise I agree.

I was expecting something more NHK-like, but it's just a 4-koma series about 4 girls in highschool.

She seemed pretty happy with their life before dropping out. Now they're a cranky, bitter and miserable mess of a person (much like many of us here). Sure they fell into it pretty easily so yeah you can't blame em, but it was hardly for the best.

If anything, her backstory of being perfect combined with the....less than 3 days it took for her to change character types and trash her room once she started the p2w MMO is part of the joke.

If anything, she's a non-loli Anzu who doesn't sing. She still goes to school and she's passing her classes. Her neet/hiki personality is literally the joke, and she's not going to drop out.

Her feet and pink toenails are all she has going for her, but the fanservice dropped to 0 after the first episode ended.

yeah but there's that angel girl with a mean streak. it's not implausible to assume that all the angels are cruel and the demons are committing casual acts of "cruelty" that turn out to be petty more often than not.

the angels are depicted as terrible people.
>> No. 27767 [Edit]
>>27766
That's one angel though, that's hardly enough to judge them all off of. Besides, Gabriel was depicted as being nice to people around her before her change. There was never any indication she was sadistic like that other angel. Also, of the demons we've seen only Satanichia has tried to do anything cruel, Vignette on the other hand comes across as being a kind and responsible type.

they are going for the role reversal situational irony thing with the angels being the ones of questionable morals and the demons being innocent and pure, but most of the shit that goes on at the school just feels painfully chuuni.

>Also, of the demons we've seen only Satanichia has tried to do anything cruel,

Hardly. She wants to be evil, but is too innocent and pure to know how to be.
The only time she actually thinks of something, it's stupidly minor and she decides against doing it because it's "so evil she will be banished from hell" -- and again, that's the joke.

This is my favorite show this season so far (haven't seen that much yet though).
I really love Satanya and Gabriel.
The only thing that bothers me is that people still do stuff with the angels despite them being complete assholes, I mean even if Satanya was so retarded she doesn't get the bullying (and extreme abuse by Raphiel) Vignette at least should cut ties with Raphiel and not trying to be friends with her.
Since Working has been mentioned in this thread, I prefer Soma's personality, he knows how to keep his bully victims near him, he isn't a complete asshole the whole time, he sometimes acts nicely so that people still want to hang around with him since they think he is a nice guy after all.

I'm not sure about that one.
On the one hand it would make sense and explain why she feel from grace so easily. On the other hand the first ep depicted her as being lured into that lifestyle, rather than diving headfirst into it the second she reached the human world. Sure you could say maybe she was lying to herself about that pc game, since there's no way an mmo would automatically install and follow the actions of other players without already creating an account. But if it was a lie then why was she living that lie during her time after just arriving to the human world for what seemed like a week or so?

School shootings aren't apart of Japanese culture like America so it's probably not illegal to bring it but against school rules. I didn't go to Japanese school but back in my school my friend brought a big-as bullet to school and teachers didn't care.

>bright orange caps
Laws regarding Airsoft is to each nation. I don't think they need the orange cap in Japan, since 'sabagebu' or 'c3bu' didn't show it.
In my nation it's completely illegal.

There isn't a stigma towards firearms in Japan, if that's what you think.

It's next to impossible to get one legally, though.

In the US, airsoft guns must be sold with orange caps. Once you own it you're free to remove them.

>It's next to impossible to get one legally
Similar to my nation.
Were there a social stigma towards firearms, in Japan, I doubt highly-accurate replicas, such as Airsoft, would be as successful as it is.
The law is the law; most governments don't make it easy to get a firearm, Japan is more pedantic about it.

For all that talk she wasn't even trying to hide that stuff, and could have come up with far better excuses for them. Could have used the same lie kids around the world use for their computers and say it's just for homework.

that technology hasn't transferred very far from their personal life to their business life.

mobile phones are still flip phones in many places, and they still prefer to use fax machines to send documents vice scaning it to a .pdf and emailing it -- but they will send an email asking if the fax was received.
