Many people spend more time at work than they do in their own homes. With that in mind, if you're a working adult - or even a teenager with a part-time job - it can be difficult to search out anime that you can relate to. After all, it's hard to find time to slay demons or compete in tournaments if you're spending 40+ hours a week in a cubicle. 

Luckily, some anime cast aside such frivolities in favor of portraying more realistic, down-to-earth stories. These series feature characters who work as teachers, bartenders, waiters, and other unexceptional jobs. However, not all anime about working feature mundane careers; some of the more unusual positions include an intergalactic gondolier, and a protagonist who manages an idol group that consists of living statues. 

No matter what the job is, these anime depict what life is like when you have to work to earn a living. Many shows provide valuable insight into the responsibilities intrinsic to obscure jobs, and all are extremely entertaining. Whether you're a working stiff, or just someone looking for a unique series, it's always more fun to watch someone else toil away at their job.
