An interesting view on women

Frankly, I can't believe the author could tell much in just 54 pages, while a new character shows up every new chapter. Besides, I just love the main character. She is a workaholic, yet her life is so great. At first, I thought her relationship was just shallow, but it turned out to be quite touching. And the other characters are quite good as well (I especially sympathize with the old guy in chapter 9).

Excellent Social Commentary

Hataraki Man is a nice exposition of the social effects of women joining the workforce. It shows the stress on society and relationships of people working and not having time for personal relationships.

The great tragedy of the series is that the artist has health complications and may not be able to continue. Best wishes go out to Moyoko Anno. I'm hoping that there will be more Hataraki Man to enjoy.

I love this manga but I love the anime more so I'm reviewing really on that as only a few of the manga chapters have been released but the anime stays pretty faithful. Any way I love this manga I love learning about all the different people who work in the office and I love the strong and true female that the plot centers around. Its unusual for people who actually enjoy office work in this day and age and to see a manga about some one who enjoys their work is refreshing and gives a young out of work girl like me hope that one day I can have a job in which I can be enthused over and really enjoy doing even if its means I have no love life!

I like it. It's a good reflection (and perhaps slight criticism...?) on the current state of Japan's working society - especially the workaholics and the effect it has on their relationships and social life. A good thing about this manga is that it is that it's realistic. The protagonist shares an understanding with the other charatcers, but it is not all catagorised into a totally "good" or totally "bad" relationship. I can't wait ot see how she deveolops through the story~

I thought this was more of a josei then a seinen, i might be wrong though bigrazz Anyways, it's pretty good and like any other josei, i quite enjoy the whole working environment and the realistic points of the serie.

I used to be like the main character before my Big Bad Burnout, so I can appreciate where she's coming from. This is an interesting, wry and often amusing take on what overworking can do to a person. The glimpses into a normal working environment, along with office politics etc., really make this a special read.
