Hataraki Man reminds me of Honey and Clover except in a busy workplace instead of a laid-back art school. And also with lots of '80s cocaine.

Incidentally, it's compulsory for Tanaka Rie fans, since she talks non-stop and also gets to show off her acting chops.

Hataraki Man is so good it makes me hope for a 54 spinoff of some variety.

Chiba, a salesman.

I particularly like how it devotes time telling the stories of side characters who aren't really in the rest of the show very much. They're nice glimpses into the jobs and goals and daily drudgery of various people just trying to live their lives day by day.

I don't quite fully understand the forehead-pointing pose, though.

This list needs more Hataraki Man.

Ha ha. Chobits.
