  • Satisfying and hilarious
    What an amazing show! The art style is realistic, really well done. The voice acting is just perfect. Each of the characters get rounded out over the course of 50 episodes, and just when you think you know them, they surprise you. Really recommend this, even if slice-of-life is not your thing. It is funny, light and at times hits you with depth you didn't suspect. All in all, very satisfying and I ...

    I LOVE PANDERSSSS. If only there was a real Polar bear cafe..
    Polar Bear Cafe has 50 episodes each episode is about 23 minutes long.

    Now if you're reading this review wondering what this anime is about... basically to summarize, 3 talking animals that run a restaurant.
    The 3 main characters consist of a penguin, polar & panda bear. It's a super cute show, this is very different than other animes and maybe too long for some people but once you start ...

  • 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 ...

  • I Love this show!!!!
    Im surprised at how much Ive enjoyed Polar Bear Cafe. Its very slice of life. You follow around Panda, Polar bear and Penguin just living their lifes. I was looking for something relaxing to watch after work and school and Ive found exactly what I was looking for. 5/5.

  • 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.

    Pilot gave me little reason to continue
    The characters were not funny, interesting, or likable. It was incredibly bland and I had a hard time even getting through the one episode I watched. I usually like slice-of-life stories, so I'm not put off by slower paced shows, but this was probably the most boring anime I've tried to watch in many years. The voice acting was dull and lifeless, and the animation, while pretty, was very ...

  • 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.
