This dorama here, will be the funniest thing you'll ever watch ......ok, if that's a little too much than still be sure that it will be there for a while and if not, go see a doctor.

This bizarre yet smart, over the top yet minimalist comedy has achieved what very few dramas can, it's cast enjoyed the show more than the audience and one can easily tell. There are scenes with read more the Konbini manager where the rest of the cast literally fights to hold off their laughter; oh how I wish I could watch the behind the scene footage (speakng of that, if anyone has any clue where to, pm me onegaishimasu!).

I didn't know any of the cast beforehand and that's sad, because I can never take them seriously ever. If you have nothing better to do (Heck! If you had, would you be wasting time here reading this?!), go watch this drama and remember,

I'm really not used to japanese television, but I really enjoyed this dorama!
It's a comedy; It has the "sitcom" format, but let me warn you, the kind of humour it displays has nothing to do with american sitcoms (that's why there's people that didn't find it funny at all).
Of course, being a sitcom, it has no story at all, but the situations the employees of a late night shift in read more a convenient store; and they are hilarious. The contrast between Urai Kenji's facial expressions, and the expressionless Shotaro is fantastic.
The acting is pretty good (I'm really sorry Sato Jiro wasn't there more time, because he was superb every time he appears), and I have really no idea how Mamiya Shotaro kept a straight face with all the ridiculous yet hilarious situations.
If you enjoy bizarre (and sometimes "stupid") humor, and WTF situations, this dorama is for you.

Make a Recommendation More recs (1)Recommendations

While these dramas have completely unrelated plots, their sense of humor are quite similar. Both are comedies that flourish through their character actors and zany antics in everyday activities. Both have a lack of background music that make the awkwardness and situations all the more hilarious and enjoyable. Fun comedies to relax with!
Recommended by pigtails4ever
Both take place in convenience stores with weird characters and strange occurrences happening regularly.

    I honestly initially didn't find this hilarious but idk the awkwardness just got the best of me + the parts where they were unable to control their laughter + ever scene with the manager in it + Rena Matsui's delusions just made me laugh very much HAHAHA It's such a light-hearted simple comedy that is random and extra af that I eventually came to like, despite it being pretty much plotless and weird.

    I'd love to see making of/behind the scenes videos for this drama xD Considering how many scenes weren't cut with the actors being unable to contain their laughter, the behind the scenes must be a lot of fun xD

      My thoughts exactly! I was wondering if it was aired live or something... loved when Nietzsche-Sensei couldn't keep a straight face in Ep. 5 XD

      100% agree, I found 1 hour (or more!) to be too much sometimes...

      the battle will be tight cause it is reported that Kami no Shita wo Motsu Otoko is hilarous too and we have yet to see what the third yuusha has to offer. But the fascinating thing is, sato jiro has been the star for these 3 dramas. That guy is really good.

    Oh my, I loved everything about this series. It's not perfect, there are some dull moments and try-hard jokes, but over-all this was a great watch. I'm now in love with Shotaro-sama. Kenji-san never ceased to amuse me with all of his facial expressions throughout the whole show. Everyone was great.

    Definitely binge-watch worthy.

    This is waaaaaaay too funny, its been ages I didnt laugh so much for a drama. Every characters are very funny in their own way, i just live for Sato Jiro, and Urai Kenji's expressions. I think you'll probably enjoy it even more if you're familiar with japanese sense of humor, manga-like as Nijichijou, Gintama, etc.

    Ridiculously funny, I loved Matsui Rena in here she stole every moment she was in and Mamiya Shotaro was great too loved the char he played. My only complaint is that it was too short. I loved how they kept in the scenes where the actors broke character, made it more funny.
