I'm skeptical about this one. Not really a fan of CG animation...

I like this kind of comedy, and I feel Africa no Salaryman will be pretty similar to Aggresive Retsuko.

Yeah, and anthropomorphic animals are always interesting if done well. I truly enjoyed Shirokuma Cafe, for example.

Maybe you're right... maybe you're right. I only hope this new version turns out better than the ONA from 2017!

The Savanna and the food chain have nothing to do with each other.

This is a comedy about the sweat and tears of African office workers who are Japanese corporate slaves☆

Lion, Toucan, and Lizard are three people, or animals anyway, worked for major companies in Africa and are now spending their days weaving their wild rants and eccentricities together to break through Japanese society.

Unreasonable projects and cruel pay cuts… The animals struggle hard against the tough life of a businessman on top of living like humans!

Businessmen in Japan will undoubtedly sympathize!

They’ve put the Savanna and the food chain completely behind them and are embracing daily life as an animal company employee!!

Three Episode Impression

Do you like workplace comedy? Do you like anthropomorphic animals? And more important, do you like CG animation? If you're OK with all of these, then you'll have a laugh watching Africa no Salaryman, especially since you never know what to expect from it; however, this is not an anime for everyone, so you definitely need to take your time and give it a try.

Some sections are really funny, while some others are just... well, not funny at all if you don't enjoy Japanese humor. All in all, 3 episodes are more than enough to understand that this is just another absurd comedy anime full of social criticism and animal jokes. It's up to you to watch it or skip it!

Characters & Voice Actors List


Voice Actor: Akio Ootsuka

Classification: Carnivora felidae panthera
Occupation: Businessman
Office: Africa
Nickname: Lion-senpai

The king of beasts and a middle manager. Lizard and Toucan call him ‘Lion-senpai’. While he seems overwhelmingly intimidating for those who meet him for the first time, and even sometimes scares his kouhai, he generally has a gentle personality. He’s the boss you aim to become!


Voice Actor: Kenjiro Tsuda

Classification: Squamata cordyline smaug
Occupation: Businessman
Office: Africa
Nickname: Lizard-kun

He’s a serious and excellent worker who doesn’t forget to keep a sense of balance between being attentive towards Lion-senpai and pushing his kouhai, Toucan, further. In fact, he’s a bit too discerning, so his jokes don’t often make sense. While he’s smart, he tends to get himself wrapped around Toucan’s little finger.


Voice Actor: Hiro Shimono

Classification: Piciformes ramphastidae ramphastos
Occupation: Businessman
Office: Africa

Actually, he’s not an African-born toucan and he’s Lion and Toucan’s kouhai. He has a very shallow personality and while he has a poor attitude about work, he makes it through with passion. He’s *that* kind of guy when it comes to being compliant.

Sasshou Hamster

Voice Actor: Hina Kino

Classification: Rodentia cricetidae golden hamster
Occupation: ?

An incredibly adorable animal with big, round black eyes. However, they always have a kitchen knife in their hands and on top of being savage, they always appear in unexpected places. They often appear in the company. *SQUEAK*

Company President Turtle

Voice Actor: Akira Ishida

Occupation: Company President
Office: Africa

He’s the president of the company where Lion and the rest work. He often has a bundle of banknotes on top of his head and calls his employees ‘corporate slaves.’ He seems like a gentle turtle with snow white eyebrows, but he often spits out ‘pay cut’ when he feels like it.
