This may be a premature review, but once I heard the premise of this anime and watched the trailer on YouTube, I just had to talk about it. Granted, I will follow my review format even though it hasn’t finished airing.
So what’s it about?
Retsuko, a 25-year-old red panda has her dream job working in the accounting department of a company. However, occasionally, her co-workers and boss can get on her nerves. Nevertheless, Retsuko keeps a level head in the office. However, to let off steam (like we all need to once in awhile), Retsuko does DEATH METAL KARAOKE!
To binge or not to binge?
I believe they are short episodes, just a minute long, so, I suppose you could wait for all of the episodes to come out and binge them all in one go. Or you could have little weekly nuggets of randomness. (Episode 2 is available on the Sanrio YouTube page, but doesn’t have subtitles, let’s see if other episodes will be released there as well).
Is it a gateway anime?
Sure! Look at the premise of this anime short, it sounds AMAZING! How can someone not be into it?
Dub or sub?
This is a brand new short, so there’s no dub. I’d be very interested if this gets a dubbed version.
What’s to like?
How about … E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G! A cute little red panda, works in an accounting department and lets off her pent up rage about work by singing death metal. If you can find something NOT to like about that, I’d be very interested in knowing.
