posted on by Crystalyn Hodgkins
Netflix began streaming a new trailer on Friday for Aggressive Retsuko (Aggretsuko), Sanrio's new original anime based on its Retsuko character. The video reveals that the anime will premiere worldwide on Netflix on April 20.
The series will have 10 15-minute episodes. Rareko, the director of the first Agressive Retsuko anime and Yawaraka Sensha, is again directing the new anime at Fanworks, and is also penning the scripts.
Retsuko is a 25-year old red panda who works in her dream company's accounting department. But it turns out that she is forced to keep doing more and more impossible tasks by her superiors and co-workers. She doesn't talk back to them, but she still has to let off steam, so she ends up going to karaoke by herself and singing death metal.
The first anime based on the character premiered in April 2016 within the Ō-sama no Brunch TBS Saturday morning program, and has been airing new one-minute episodes weekly since then.
