The global pandemic’s stranglehold on the entertainment industry is not so terrifying because we’ve still got TV and streaming! In fact, Netflix will be releasing the third season of the awesome Aggretsuko cartoon at the end of the month, on Aug. 27! So at least we’ve got that to look forward to.
I very much enjoy this cartoon and highly recommend it. Aggretsuko takes the cheerful, kid-friendly vibe of Hello Kitty and transforms it into a workplace comedy with a touch of anarchistic glee.
It’s about a young woman named Retsuko who struggles to make it in life as a single 20-something woman with a crummy office job. Her one respite from reality is her love of hardcore death metal karaoke!
