Salaryman’s Club was an underappreciated original anime series that aired from January 30th to April 17th, 2022. Viewers began watching for the great visuals promised by the poster and trailer, but stayed for the ride the anime took us on.
Sure, when we hear about a sports anime, we know it will face competition from other great sports anime, but Salaryman’s Club takes a different approach to sports. Read our Ryman’s Club/Club Salaryman’s anime review for more information.
Salaryman’s Club Anime Review!
A Different & Intriguing Plot!
It’s different but not unique because it shares similarities with other sports anime. But it’s different because the focus isn’t on high school kids vying for a championship or an inter-high cup, but on adults who have a genuine love for sports but have to work to make ends meet. It included not only the sport, but also issues at work. The plot also flawlessly incorporates slice-of-life moments.
Salaryman’s Club demonstrates that, as long as you have the drive, balancing your work life and your passion for anything is possible at any age. It emphasises the value of having hobbies as an adult. Because the series is only 12 episodes long, the story may be a little fast-paced, but it is still enjoyable and refreshing.
A large portion of the audience was drawn in by the anime’s art style. After all, Berserk, Cells at Work, and Tokyo Revengers were all produced by Liden Films. It also did not squander its efforts on Salaryman’s Club.
All of the badminton matches are superbly animated. The hype they generate is genuine and rivals that of other well-known sports anime. Character designs and animations are of high quality as well.
Music is an essential component of every anime. People may begin watching an anime simply because it has a memorable opening or ending song. With its opening, “The Warrior” by Novelbright, and its ending, “Nisen Gohyaku Man no Ichi” by Mafumafu, Salaryman’s Club checks both boxes.
The music across the whole anime is a complete delight to the ears. It accompanies the anime perfectly to the teeth, pulling the reader into another world.
For Those Who Love Badminton, Salaryman’s Club Is Just for You!
Salaryman’s Club is a fantastic addition to the list of anime based on badminton. The anime does not go into great detail about the sport, but beginners will have no trouble understanding it. Those who know badminton and understand the terminology will identify with the characters.
Each character has both strengths and weaknesses. The character development may feel rushed or incomplete, but the anime ends with the possibility of a sequel. If you enjoy badminton, I encourage you to watch Salaryman’s Club and be inspired by the Badrymen!
To begin, the animation provides us with a feast of visually appealing images. The music is perfect for all of the scenes, not to mention the banger op and ed songs. The plot depicts adults who are ordinary office workers who share a passion for badminton and are preparing to compete in corporate tournaments. The anime introduces us to badminton, an underappreciated sport. Finally, if you just want to watch an anime and relax, Salaryman’s Club is the place to go!
