Aggretsuko is one of those animes that can totally make your day better with laughter. The anime is about a cute red panda called Retsuko who works as an accountant in a company. Just a normal office worker dealing with her everyday life in the office. Is that all there is to her though? Let’s start the review and find out!

My very first thought about the anime was how cute and cuddly Retsuko was. I basically assumed that this was the typical straight forward storyline anime with shoujo-styled problems and cute endings. Truthfully, I was 90% wrong, 10% correct – it is still cute and cuddly!

Why was I wrong? Here’s the reason – firstly, Retsuko is usually calm at her work place. She always tries her best not to let anger consume her, so what she’ll do is go for karaoke. Oh, but it’s not some usual karaoke with friends with drinking and getting drunk together or having a sad alone time, instead it’s actually a metal-singing-stress-relieving karaoke! Retsuko sings metal songs to get all the pent up anger out. Plus, she never forgets to bring her microphone with her wherever she goes. She rocks!

This anime has plenty of moments that many typical office workers (like me) would probably relate themselves to. Ranging from super annoying co-workers to bosses that demand too much, Retsuko is totally in a pinch all the time. If I was her, I would have lashed out all my anger and maybe lose my job at the same time. She’s such a cutie sometimes, having cute adorable moments with some of her friends at work, even drinking a glass of juice makes her look cute too.

I personally love metal songs and I definitely enjoy myself every time Retsuko pulls out her mic and sings. The lyrics are not that frightening or gruesome like normal metal songs are, it’s just Retsuko ranting about the ‘suffering’ she had in the office that day – from her boss, co-workers or even from things that occur around her. You would probably bob your head along too when Retsuko’s metal songs are on.

Overall from me, this is not the kind of cute anime anyone would expect from looking at Retsuko herself. It’s true that the character is from Sanri – a Japanese company that makes many adorable characters including the iconic Hello Kitty, but having Retsuko join their cast surely does give you that feel ‘this anime is different’ vibe. I would really recommend this anime to anyone, but probably not for kids under 12 (mild vulgar language).
