After the announcement that Sanrio’s Aggressive Retsuko/Aggretsuko would be receiving her own Netflix series, Netflix Japan has now released the first trailer, which also reveals that it will hit the streaming service this April.
Retsuko is a 25-year-old red panda who works as an office associate in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. She just wants is to do her job and get through the day, but as we see in the trailer, her superiors and co-workers pile more work for her. Rather than talk back to them, she takes her frustrations out by going to karaoke sessions and singing death metal.
The series will consist of ten episodes, each one 15 minutes in length. It is produced by FANWORKS, with episodes written and directed by Rareko (both of whom worked on the initial Aggretsuko short sketches that have been airing on TBS’ King’s Brunch show).
Aggretsuko will be available to view worldwide on Netflix from 20 April 2018.
