I forgot this was also being animated and aired this year. Four of my favorite manga animated... 2017 has been the best year for me anime-wise. And as Lynzee said, reading this is a different experience. It's incredibly easy to get immersed in this story, and later, when you realize that you're not in there... You feel sad.

A truly wonderful series.

Jesus. Am I the only one that read that and felt like those guys are basically the Devil??
Their expectations seem insanely reckless and harbor far too little concern for the staff's actual lives. And knowing a little bit about Mr Wada, I don't think I'm too far off with him at least. Yes, sleep and food are the most important thing. But GOOD sleep and GOOD food, especially. This sounds horrifying.

Mmmm. Not a good idea to boost about nearly killing your Japanses staff after the Japanese government just passed laws to eliminate the practice of working one's staff to death. Won't go down well in their defence should one of those "hard working" staff should suddenly choke on an energy bar and die. On topic of the plot as of the latest volume (7) it's becoming more blurred who is teaching who and who is the kohei and who is the senpai. Also on a personal note because I live and work in the UK I'm getting annoyed with the Americanising of names of British appliances and tools. We don't use "cell phones" we use "mobiles". I blame the American translators lazyness to research such things. The author using research he's gathered from what sounds like a quaint but appears rather out of date Japanese based theme park of British life and culture is glaringly vexing. He says he's been to the UK, but he doesn't appear to have learned anything from that. Very few houses except the larger old aritocratic manor houses of 18th, or later upgraded 19th and 20th centuries might have had "Claw footed" baths but many common houses had none at the start. ( No toilet, no sink, no pressured water tap, Tin pan bath by the kitchen range filled by buckets from the well outside, or in the street warmed with a kettle or two of boiling water from the solid fuel range in the kitchen. Her-in-doors spent her early childhood that way on her parents dairy farm. I'm a towny. Anime smile), and later the basic bathtub not dissimilar to your bog standard cast iron enameled bath today. Elias is depicted as a loads-o-money, though how and where he acrued such wealth hasn't been mentioned as yet, so he could easily afford modern plumbing in his what looks like an early Georgian Vicarage, or farmhouse.
