January Anime Challenge – Aggretsuko

This musical comedy tells the tale of an anthropomorphic red panda named Retsuko. She works in the accounting department of a Japanese trading firm and is 25 years old. Our single red panda heroine faces pushy superiors and annoying co-workers on a daily basis and rather than taking out her frustrations on them, she let’s loose her emotions by going to a karaoke bar every night to sing death metal. But after 5 years of torment… er… working the daily grind, her unhappiness causes her to experience a series of events that may cause her job, causing her to change her relationships with her co-workers and transforming her life in unexpected ways.
