Sanrio to Launch Netflix Original Aggretsuko Anime Series


Hello Kitty creators Sanrio are set to launch an original Netflix series featuring their red panda character, Aggretsuko – an over worked office worker who enjoys singing death metal karaoke to blow off steam.

Yeti, Aggretsuko’s designer, said that “My target was working people or people who want to vent their frustration. I think (Retsuko) is a character that these people can empathize with.”

There will be ten episodes in total with a run time of fifteen minutes each. The series is due to air in Spring 2018 and will be directed by Rareko (who directed the original Aggretsuko TV series back in 2016.)
