Aggretsuko, the Red Panda created by Hello Kitty owner Sanrio, has been given her own Netflix show made up of ten 15 minute episodes which will premier in Spring 2018. If you’re not familiar with Aggretsuko then here’s a quick description from Sanrio themselves:
Aggretsuko is a cute Red Panda, working as an office associate in the accounting department of a highly respected trading company. She works in one of the biggest metropolitan areas of Tokyo.
It’s always been a dream of Aggretsuko to work as an accountant, especially in this part of the city. But in reality, her bosses are unsympathetic and give her harsh deadlines. She ultimately has become a pushover within the company. When she gets pushed to the limit, she goes out after work and takes out her frustration and stress with heavy metal Karaoke sessions!
Netflix’s vice president of content acquisition, Rob Roy, has said that Aggretsuko “may be a uniquely Japanese show,” but the “frustration it taps into…is universal.”
