Move over, Hello Kitty

Aggretsuko, netflix

In 2017, Hello Kitty creator Sanrio introduced a new character called Aggretsuko, a beer-drinking, heavy metal-loving red panda who hates her office job. Now, the company’s most relatable character is getting her own show on Netflix.

Aggretsuko premieres April 20th and will follow the stressed, screaming office worker as she ponders her future and soothes her woes with death metal karaoke. The anime’s first trailer, posted to Twitter, promises office drama, existential crises, and a lot of adorable animals being jerks.
