After four years of unmatched comedy, Aggretsuko is here with its fifth and final season on Netflix. The animated series landed on the streamer in April 2018 for the first installment, followed by seasons two, three, and four in June 2019, August 2020, and December 2021.
Aggretsuko has, over its past four seasons, managed an impressive score of 8.2/10 stars on IMDb, a 100% average Tomatometer (supported by an 86% average audience score), 7.6/10 stars on MyAnimeList, and 3/5 stars on Common Sense Media.
The animation show has born several projects, including a comic book series in February 2020, adapted by D.J. Kirkland and Daniel Barnes' Aggretsuko: The Short Timer Strikes Back, a mobile game unveiled in July 2020 for iOS and Android.
What’s the Plot for ‘Aggretsuko’ Season Five?
Aggretsuko revolves around Retsuko, a 25-year-old red panda working as an accountant in a Japanese trading business. Retsuko’s accountant and young-adult issues push her to the wall, threatening her career and relationship with everyone, including co-workers.
The fresh graduate thinks that getting married and building a family will bring her the happiness she craves.
