Netflix announced during its Anime Expo panel on Thursday that Sanrio and Fanworks' Aggressive Retsuko (Aggretsuko) anime will get a second season that will debut on Netflix in 2019.
The first Netflix season premiered worldwide on April 20. The series has 10 15-minute episodes. Rareko, the director of the previous Agressive Retsuko anime (which predated the Netflix anime) and Yawaraka Sensha, again directed the first Netflix season at Fanworks, and also penned 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 aired new one-minute episodes weekly until March 31.
