Whether it be facing misogynistic remarks from her boss or being pressured by condescending co-workers, stress is just another part of the job for 25-year-old red panda Retsuko. Despite being one of the most diligent workers at her office, her diminutiveness and modesty often lead her to be exploited by her colleagues. However, when her irritation hits the limit, Retsuko brings forth her unique brand of letting off steam: aggressive death metal karaoke bashing the idiocy and hypocrisy of her co-workers' actions and work life. Although this venting only takes place in her mind, it gives her an outlet to counter her frustration in a world where hierarchy and appearances reign supreme.

[Written by MAL Rewrite]

Aggresive Retsuko manages to be hilarious with just a single minute per episode.

The story is simple, Retsuko has to deal with way too relatable stressful situations during her everyday life, and when she can't handle what happens in that episode anymore, she goes crazy and starts singing death metal music, the way it's done makes the series really fun because you totally emphatize with the protagonist and her reactions are just priceless.

The character designs are simple but charming, the music is mostly 2-3 songs and that's all which is fine considering its duration, and there is always Retsuko giving some lyrics in her rage attacks ...

to be honest, this is probably one of the most enjoyable animes I've ever watched

I (and basically everyone lmao) have never felt relatable to a character then Retsuko, Retsuko is literally me when someone says something i don't like,does something i dont like, act a way i dont want them to or do something that i don't like,
there are 100 episodes and all of them are 1 minute which means that you can get this anime done in 1 hour and 40 minutes

the story is simple: Retsuko deals with stressful situations and goes to karaoke to start singing death metal music to help with her ...

Aggressive Retsuko manages to be very funny with just over 1 minute per episode.

Story (8/10): The story is very simple. It is about a red panda girl named Retsuko who has an office job. She deals with way too realistic and relatable
real world problems and when she can't take them anymore, she sings death metal and her reactions are priceless.

Art (8/10): The art is very good but nothing to die for.

Sound (8/10): The music while only being 2-3 songs, is fine considering the length of each and every episode.

Character (8/10): Retsuko is a great character and the side characters are ...
