Aggretsuko Anime Teases 5th Season
posted on by Alex Mateo
Netflix began streaming the fourth season of the Aggretsuko anime worldwide on Thursday, and the season's tenth and final episode reveals the words "Retsuko will return" and the number "5" in the background, teasing the series' fifth season.
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 character's first anime (which predated the Netflix anime) premiered in April 2016 within the Ō-sama no Brunch TBS Saturday morning program, and aired new one-minute episodes weekly until March 2018.
The first 10-episode Netflix season premiered worldwide in April 2018. Rareko, the director of the previous Agressive Retsuko anime and Yawaraka Sensha, again directed the first Netflix season at Fanworks, and also penned the scripts.
