  • Both Adorable & Unique
    Polar Bear Cafe (a.k.a. Shirokuma Cafe) is one of my favorite animes; this is coming from someone who is very picky about what animes they watch. However, I have always been a sucker for "slice-of-life" type animes, as well as animals- so this one fit the bill. The characters have a lot of dimension to their personalities, and all have their own backstories that are intriguing to learn ...

  • A feel-good show full of heart
    Probably one of the best anime shows to always cheer you up. Polar Bear's Cafe has a great combination of comedy, charm and tons of heart with great animation to boot. Each character's personality brings something unique to the show - from childish Panda, snarky Penguin and calm and mysterious Polar Bear, it's easy to find a favorite. An anime I'll cherish for years to come.

  • Never too old for this show!
    I'm a grown ass woman (I guess) and LOVE this series! Adorable and playful, kid friendly without TOO much substance - but I really couldn't get enough of Panda, Polar Bear and their friends...and it left me wishing there was a cafe nearby I could hang out at

  • Usuniki's Review: "Very entertaining, fun and you learn Japanese!"
    My personal rating: 9/10

    It's calming and makes me feel at ease, all the while making me laugh and squeal at how cute some of the characters are. It's really funny and you actually learn Japanese from watching it. I'm sure if you have kids or small siblings I'm sure they would enjoyed it a lot and learn something new in each episodes.

  • More than a cute face
    Definitely my feel-good anime. The voice actors do a splendid job and it just feels so mellow :3 Panda is super cute too (what do you expect? He's a chubby ball of fur who collects panda merchandise). It has some great laughs and touching moments as well. It's different from anything else I've ever watched. One episode just makes you feel good for the entire day.

    If I could choose to be reborn ...

  • Kind of like Seinfeld, but with animals and Anime.
    It's a show about nothing but it's adorable and you actually learn a few things along the way. I don't know any Japanese but Polar Bears puns have a Sesame Street effect and you end up memorizing new words along the way.Very lighthearted and plenty of moments to make you laugh and go aww. The subtitles have a few light swears, mostly from Grizzly but I don't think it's nothing you couldn't ...

  • A Great Slice of Life
    Don`t be fooled by the cuddly animals. This is a slice of life about working class adults. It's relaxing, insightful, touching, intelligent, clever, witty and oh so cuddly! Truly has something for all ages, although I will say you'll get even more out of it if you are a working class adult. :)
    One of my all time favourite animes!

  • Cute and relaxing show to watch.
    This show, from what I've seen so far, doesn't have very deep plots that are really keeping you on your toes and "I must watch every second to understand what's happening". It is much more laid back and relaxing to watch. It's cute and at times silly but other times can be very touching and sweet. I have enjoyed every episode that I have seen, because it's refreshing to watch something that ...

  • 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.
