  • 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.

  • 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.

  • I really like it!!!!!
    I find it helps with some Japanese Terms! I like that! It's also has it's own comedy routine!! The anime is not what you would expect but I find it very funny!! rather suttle but entertaining! My favorite character so far is the Polar bear he is so nice!

    An anime I was pleasantly surprised about
    This is the first slice-of-life anime I've seen, and when I first started I wasn't really expecting anything from it. Yet, when I finished the first two episodes, I knew it was something different to what I was used to and was absolutely charmed.

    There is no underlying greater story to be told or adventure to be experienced, it's just the day-to-day life of some quirky talking animals and ...
