Aggretsuko Anime Gets Christmas Episode on December 20
posted on by Egan Loo
The video service Netflix announced on Tuesday that it will stream a Christmas episode for the Aggretsuko anime on December 20 worldwide.
Netflix describes the story of the "We Wish You a Metal Christmas" episode:
While Retsuko desperately makes plans for Christmas Eve, her new obsession with seeking validation through social media spirals out of control.
Netflix also notes that the teaser above and the episode itself feature a punk cover of "Jingle Bells” by Tim Timebomb (Rancid). Rareko is once again directing and writing the episode at Fanworks.
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 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.
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.
The second season will debut on Netflix next year.
