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
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
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
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
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.
Voice Actor: Hina Kino
Classification: Rodentia cricetidae golden hamster
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
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.
