Working Prime!! is a prime example of not knowing when to call it quits. Most of the characters are one trick ponies: Takanashi has his love of small things, Taneshima is short, Todoroki has a sword, Inami punches men, etc. These jokes were played out ad nauseum in the first season, and the second season continued this trend. These jokes were already stale. Now they don’t even merit a chuckle.
Now, the season still had a few good segments: namely, everything involving Yamada. She is the one character I wouldn’t mind seeing more of. The development of the romances between Satou and Todoroki, and Takanashi and Inami had some good points as well. But the problem is, you know it is never going to amount to anything, and we always get a reset ending.
I’m hoping we don’t get a third season and have an opportunity to watch something fresh instead.
