    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 ...

    A cute anime, must watch for elementary japanese learners
    This anime uses simple and easy to understand sentences. For people just starting to learn Japanese, you can pick up grammar structures, verb conjugations and particles.. etc... a really helpful addition to your study. I love the puns!

    Well, other than that, there's the irresistible fluffy round bears and funny animals. =P

    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.

  • Absolutely loved this series until roughly Ep 30 it went downhill...
    So the first half of this series is a quaint, heartwarming show that I found relaxing, as well as laugh-out-loud funny. I was expecting a cute and relaxing show, and I never expected it to be as clever and hilarious as it turned out to be.

    At first my favourite characters were Polar Bear, Grizzly, and to a certain extent Panda. The show has a lot of heartwarming moments, creative intros & ...

  • Hilarious! I love the characters.
    This show is HILARIOUS.

    If you're looking to have a laugh, go and start watching this immediately. The characters are quite charming, all of them. I feel like they all represent the animals they are quite accurately, as well.
    Seeing animals behave in a very human-like fashion, I guess essentially humanizing them?, is just too interesting to resist for me.


    There's a little bit of story to ...

  • PENGIN SAN PENGIN SAN
    This is a different sort of slice of life. It's fairly slow paced, and it took me over a year to get around to all 50 episodes, but I just kept coming back to it. The episodes are split in half with two different stories in each half. This made it easy to watch half an episode one day, and come back to it later. It would have been nice if they were split into two 10 minute episodes, but oh ...
