Plot Synopsis

This quarter-hour animated series follows Retsuko, a 25-year-old red panda, who is frustrated with her thankless office job in the accounting department of a trading company in Tokyo. All she wants is to do her job and get through the day, but when frustrations reach a boiling point, she vents through death metal karaoke. As Retsuko enters her fifth year at a prestigious trading firm, she struggles to motivate herself everyday as the daily stress from work takes a toll. Tired of her wholesome good-girl persona at work, Retsuko is drawn to the free-spirited lifestyle of her former high school classmate, Puko. Retsuko loses the will to tackle the daily grind after Puko asks her to join a new business venture. A fed up Retsuko talks back to her supervisor. On Friday, April 20, 2018 at 3:01am ET/12:01am PT, Netflix released the 10-episode first season of AGGRETSUKO.

From her mother meddling in her personal affairs to a nightmarish new coworker, Retsuko's still got a lot to rage about in her karaoke sessions.

The entire 10-episode fourth season of AGGRETSUKO dropped on Thursday, December 16, 2021 on Netflix. Retsuko turns up the volume to stop Haida from making the biggest mistake ever when a sly new company president takes the office to a new extreme. In the season opener, "Someone from Work," with a new apartment and a collection of weapons, Retsuko moves forward after her attack, but her relationship with Haida remains at a standstill.
