We’ve been following the saga of Aggretsuko since we first heard about her last year. Retsuko, an adorable office worker at a trading company, is a 25 year-old red panda in Sanrio’s Hello Kitty universe. Like many of us, she’s overworked and underappreciated at her job, so when she’s not at it, she drinks beer and rages by singing death metal karaoke. Relateable, right? Late last year, we’d heard that Netflix had picked up her series of ten 15-minute episodes, and that it would be coming out this Spring. Now we have a release date. The show will debut on April 20th, and Netflix has released a trailer:

This is an original series, meaning that it’s been created just for Netflix. It seems a little more serious and adult-oriented than we initially thought, but then again, it’s about a panda that sings death metal, so we’re on board regardless!
