Aggretsuko Season 3 Expected Storyline
The Japanese anime musical comedy, ‘Aggretsuko’ or ‘Aggressive Retsuko’ centres the adventures of 25-year old Retsuko, an anthropomorphic red panda working in the accounting department in Japan. As she tries to handle the frustration from her workplace, her personal relationships and her dreams, she relieves her emotions by singing death metal in a karaoke bar every night. The second season focuses on her ideas about adulthood that she had in her mind and the way she came out becoming a stronger person. As the trailer prompts, the third season of the series is going to show Retsuko being challenged to strive for her dreams, possibly struggling to leave behind her colleagues and friends, and start a new life.
The show is led by Retsuko, the titular character, voiced over by Kaolip and Rarecho in Japanese, and by Erica Mendez and Jamison Boaz in English. Other important characters of the series include Director Ton voiced by Souta Arai in Japanese and by Josh Petersdorf in English; Fenneko voiced over by Rina Inoue in Japanese and by Katelyn Gault in English; Haida voiced over by Shingo Kato in Japanese and by Ben Diskin in English; Director Gori voiced by Maki Tsuruta in Japanese and by G.K. Bowes in English; Washimi voiced by Komegumi Koiwasaki in Japanese and by Tara Platt in English; Tsunoda voiced by Rina Inoue in Japanese and by G.K.
