Critic Consensus: Uniquely bleak for a Sanrio property, Aggretsuko balances biting corporate satire with adorable characters and absurdist comedy to create a surprising, insightful addition to the world of animation.

Critic Reviews for Aggretsuko Season 1

And that is the crux of "Aggretsuko's" problem. As it stands, this delightful season is more like filling up on Costco samples than a more substantial series binge. That's no doubt part of its charm.

If you want a show that will make you want to laugh, cringe, and scream along to death metal all wrapped in adorable animation, then Aggretsuko is the show for you.

Fenneko has the best laugh. THE BEST.

Aggretsuko is well on her way to becoming an all-time favorite Sanrio character.

That's really what makes Aggretsuko so relatable, even if the circumstances of its main character's life don't exactly map onto yours.

Aggretsuko isn't some unflinching nightmare, though, as it also has some great moments of weird comedy.

It's funny, it's silly, it's serious, and it's a bit morose. Even so, it still gives me hope in a strange, bittersweet kind of way.

Aggretsuko gets that corporate life can be miserable, but there's something oddly comforting to that bleak observation. You may hate your day job, but Retsuko hates her's more.

If Hello Kitty is a blank canvas ready for all manner of brand partnerships, Aggretsuko is her polar opposite: she is the frenzied energy of a Jackson Pollock painting, and it's comprised only of red and black paint.

Aggretsuko only looks like it's aimed at the young girls who squeal over wee Hello Kitty notepads, or My Melody squishy key chains -- its real audience is the growing cadre of girls and women who have had enough.
