    Wonderful Characters!
    This is a really great anime to watch when you just want to unwind. The characters are so fun and distinct that you'll have a favorite in no time. Polar Bear Cafe is also great for learning random facts about almost anything, and it's also good for learning everyday Japanese custom and seasonal tradition. Great show!

    Simple yet fantastic
    I love this show - the perfect yet screwball Polar Bear, the lazy and selfish yet adorable Panda, and the cynical and whiny Penguin. There's the short-tempered and true-to-heart Grizzly, the unimpressive responsible clean-freak Handa, the kind, naive and underestimated Sasako, etc, etc.

    They end up in lots of situations (it's a slice of life show) almost introductory-like themes to Japanese ...

    This manga warms your heart!
    If you want dramatic actions you won't see them here BUT this is just a warm simple funny anime that you definitely don't want to miss. The most impressive is that all the voice actors behind these characters are using their unusual voices for these animals and they all sound really amazing!

    My most favoriteliest
    This is my most favoriteliest anime EVAR. I'm sure most college students, like myself, can relate to at least one of the characters, or know someone who fits the character's personalities perfectly. Watching a new episode every week is the light at the end of a very dark tunnel that is studying and doing homework. I always make myself a coffee or espresso and eat something sweet while I watch this ...

    Great for the entire family
    As an adult anime lover it can be difficult to find anime that is enjoyable and appropriate for both my 8 year old and myself. The moment I saw the title to PBC I knew I had found what I was looking for. This is a great, intelligent, and hilarious show that the entire family can enjoy. Grizzly has some colorful language from time to time but nothing kids dont hear during prime time TV.

  • I love this anime! Would recommend.
    It's easy to watch this anime and just like the characters. They're not exactly charming but they're interesting and amusing and sometimes awfully irritating but that's probably why I like them, haha.

    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 ...

  • 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.

  • 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 ...
