It used to be that San-X were the brand for weird kawaii characters but Sanrio have been getting weirder lately with Kirimi-chan, Gudetama and now Aggretsuko.
Aggretsuko is a cute red panda who works in an office but when her job and coworkers gets frustrating she vents her anger with heavy metal karaoke! I think we can all empathise.
There’s not much merchandise available yet but Sanrio’s US site has some file folders, while there’s bags, phone and pass cases, plush and more at Amazon Japan (if that link doesn’t work, go to Amazon.co.jp and paste アグレッシブ烈子 into the search box).
What do you think about Aggretsuko? I think she’s hilarious and can’t wait to see more of her adventures!
