An adult cast is something I’ve always enjoyed and I think is also a very underrated theme. We’re so used to these Isekai and high school rom-coms, that something like an adult cast almost always flies under the radar. I find that a lot of the anime I enjoy are primarily adult cast, workplace themed anime.
All those anime were workplace themed anime with an adult cast and it just so happens that I enjoyed watching each one of them. Some more than others, but still my point stands. I think that Koori Zokusei Danshi to Cool na Douryou Joshi can find itself on that list eventually.
What’s great about these types of anime is that since they will almost always consist of four characters, they come in pairs so as a viewer you know who you can ship; and you know me I love shipping characters together.
What I’ve enjoyed about the past couple of episodes (as of writing, I just finished episode five) is how calm and laid back everything has been. Like, the just how softspoken and sincere the characters feel when they’re interacting with one another is nice to watch.
This world we find out character is feels great too. What I mean by that is it combines a hint of fantasy with a seemingly normal setting, Japan. It’s almost as if everything has always co-existed, like it flows very well. The mixing of different character types is also fun. We have a normal individual paired up with a fantasy-like character who is a descendent of someone or something.
It’s great because you really think about it, each pair is complimentary of one another. For example, Fuyutsuki-san is very calm and softspoken, while although is very similar to her, Himuro-kun is unable to stay calm and at times isn’t able to articulate without literally freezing up.
Katori-kun is a very fiery, dedicated and loyal individual which compliments Otonashi-san who is very studious almost like a leader, who isn’t afraid to get punchy whe3n she has to.
Then we have my favourite pairing of the bunch, Komori-san and Saejima-kun. They have been my favourite to watch because they just fit so well together. They remind me a lot of Souta and Touko from Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi because they are like unintentionally flirting with each other and that’s something that is the kind of workplace romance that I adore. Not to mention in Senpai ga Uzai Kouhai no Hanashi, Souta and Touko is my favourite pairing in the anime, I like them more than the main characters.
Which may end up being the case here too with Koori Zokusei Danshi to Cool na Douryou Joshi.
It’s weird, because a workplace themed anime is pretty run-of-the-mill. Like you know what to expect, you know roughly what’s going to happen. However, what makes them work so well, why I consider them to be very entertaining and worthwhile are because the character have the ability to make or break the anime. Five episodes in and it looks like the characters are IT. Which is something I love.
