■Yeti's comment (Sanrio “Aggrestuko” designer)
Thank all fans of Aggretsuko to love her. At the very first time that I designed Aggretsuko, I thought it too unique to understand its world for foreigners, but I am now surprised to see such a great response from a lot of countries. I am very sure to make a funny but really aggressive and rock work in this season 2 again. Please wait for its release and be ready to be blown up your mind.


■The director Rareko's comment
I didn't expect that Aggrestuko got huge reputation from foreign countries because we just broadcasted a work that has a lot of jokes about contemporary Japanese society that could not have any response from the world. Thank all fans and please be looking forward to Where Retsuko will take us to in the end.
