    Often funny, sometimes touching
    This is a show that has a little bit of everything. All the animals have such distinct personalities, and I imagine everyone must have one in particular they can relate to. For me it's Penguin, I can't even say why - out of all the characters to me he is the best example of what the show is about. Sometimes goofy and over the top, then suddenly surprising you by being insightful and touching. ...

    A Relaxing Cup of Coffee
    This particular series is a fun, relaxing Saturday morning wake up for my wife and I. The word humor is great for those with little ones wanting to learn similar-sounding words with entirely different meanings. The animation and stories are easy to follow and filled with good-natured fun for all ages. And once you realize that the stories aren't necessarily interconnected and usually done as two ...

    Loved dearly and missed
    This show warmed the heart and was so calming and relaxed. Instant stress relief. We miss it so much! I hope it someday starts up again, but the entire series is worth re-watching (several times) in the meantime.

    Very enjoyable to watch and always brings a smile
    I originally picked this anime at random and really was blown away by the random adventures the characters get into. Each character has their own unique charm and you get to see friendships form as well as where friendships originated.

    You could almost start watching this show at any point and just watch a stand alone episode, but there is a decent amount of chronological ...

    Perfect cast of characters of talking animals !
    I have to admit I was bit unsure of watching this anime, but then I started to grow fond of the characters, Mr. Panda has the cute sense and care free attitude that anyone can relate too, being a loaf but also being cute. But also proud to be a Panda which gives out a great shout out

    PANDAS ARE AWESOME LOVE US

    A really nice, calm and relaxing anime.
    Polar Bear Cafe is brilliant! It's not intense, there's no huge plot twists, no cliff hangers... It's just a nice and adorable anime! The best way I can describe it is that it's like a soap (i.e Eastenders, Coronation Street or Desperate House Wives) but without all of the drama. It's just nice! Characters are great, humour is spot on and Polar Bear is fast becoming one of my favourite characters ...

    Suprised that no one seems to have picked up on this
    From the very first episode, I had the thought that Polar Bear's Cafe is an anime version of Senfield. It's a show with engaging, quirky characters in an urban environment showing them simply living their lives. Moving from insignificant crisis to insignificant crisis, with no real story arc, PBC is, like it's real life counterpart, a simple pleasure.

  • A hidden gem - shame it doesn't get more exposure
    This is the best comedy anime I've seen in a long time, with memorable characters like the three main ones: Shirokuma/Polar Bear, Penguin-san, Panda-kun and equally memorable supporting characters Grizzly, Llama-san, the mother squirrels, etc.

    Innocuous on the surface, but with some unexpectedly cutting wit.

  • A superb, relaxing show.
    I'll try to keep this short and sweet. I love the artwork. It is mostly dry humor. To me, this show was very cute and relaxing. I loved coming home after a hard day, lying in bed and watching this show. When I run out of episodes I'm going to feel so lost.

  • Just the cutest anime
    At first I thought it looked a little ridiculous, then the theme song came on and I thought "well this is kind of cute." Then after the first episode I was hooked. I cannot stop watching this, it's the most adorable anime I've seen in a while. I just want to give each bear a hug.
