Critic Reviews for Aggretsuko Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

The story is fun, but its digression into grim territory keeps it from hitting as close to home as its predecessors.

Sep 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Aggretsuko: Season 3 continues to successfully carry on a wonderfully entertaining story, while also mirroring aspects of one of the most important anime films of all time.

Sep 1, 2020 | Rating: 8/10 | Full Review…

"Aggretsuko continues to resonate, echoing through the skulls of rage-filled office workers everywhere."

Aug 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Aggretsuko Season 3 does not fall ill to Netflix's third-season syndrome and it keeps up the solid momentum with more energetic but heartwarming chapters.

Aug 27, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

While Retsuko's problems in Aggretsuko Season 3 has changed slightly, the series remains the most cathartic and relatable animations on Netflix.

Audience Reviews for Aggretsuko: Season 3

  • Feb 17, 2021
    Aggretsuko's Season 3 is a spectacular rollercoaster of a ride where so many emotions take place and build up for its powerful climax. Definitely a very shaking and impactful season for me and this time around, the ending feels somewhat complete and not as abrupt as season 2's ending. The re-introduction of Tadano and other past characters was great and I loved seeing them connecting with other side/main characters of the show in scenes that us as an audience have never seen before. This season, although definitely one that has lost its relatability compared to its past seasons, it feels more dramatic and real in itself. Without spoiling, I've definitely felt chills throughout the season every time the stalker appears. The soundtrack itself is also wonderful (something I forgot to mention in the past reviews). The atmosphere it brings to the appropriate scene really harmonizes with it and complements it well. Whether it be the calming piano notes or the hyped song "Aggressive Girl" from the new underground band, the soundtrack really sets the mood for each scene and helps immerse the viewer in it as well (I recommend wearing headphones if you can). Personally, I felt moved by the emotional scenes this season had, the conflict between Haida's love triangle and whether he should keep pursuing Retsuko's love or settle with Inui makes it for another smaller climax at the end where one really feels sorry for the girl he didn't choose. Overall, another wonderful season by Sanrio and I'll keep looking forward to what he brings to us in Season 4!

    Bittersweet ending that leaves it in a very high note. Best season so far. I like other chars getting more spotlight and the prota breaking out of her shell is a delight to watch.

    Many critics of this show often criticize the bad decision making of its two leads, Retsuko and Haida. In my opinion, these critics fail to realize that this is really a fundamental part of the beauty of this show. Young adulthood is permeated, characterized, and for many people even defined by bad decision making. To magically afford them some ethereal compass by which they know exactly what they want, what to pursue, when to give up, etc., would take away the rich complexity which makes this show truly unique among anime and even among all animation (NOTE: I'm not suggesting other shows don't cover the struggles of adulthood, but I have yet to see any treatment that breaks away from the serialized feel-good problem-of-the-week format like this except for Bojack Horseman, and its highly sardonic style doesn't appeal to me personally).

    Interesting arc that gives a funky shift from office work stress and romance for aggretsuko to an idol show struggling with being famous. A few moments in this arc made me shout at the idiocy of main girl being warned about something but ignoring it but it works with her character and wasn't too unbelievable. However Haida's romance arc was quite simply terrible. What should be a learning to move on story turns into forcing people who've experienced traumatic stress and who have shown no romantic interested to go on a date is a good idea. They introduce an incredibly cute character who Haida clicks better with and has her thrown aside for him doting on his childish crush. This ruins aggretsuko's arc from being her own adventure to becoming romance based on Haida without any build up. Worse season by far.

    Probably the best season

    Season 3 took everything I disliked in season 2 and magnified it while adding more. Some spoilers may be ahead so BEWARE! The first two episodes were promising, dealing with the old breakup remedy of overspending to compensate and the troubles of trying to make extra money for your debts. They even show Retsuko trying to make extra money off of youtube which would have been a much better avenue to explore. Sadly, everything we loved about Aggretsuko ends by the end of episode 2. The major selling point was always the realistic situation's but that's absent in this season. (An idol group, really?!) Other than the manager the rest of the new cast are just one-note background characters. I'm still not crazy about everyone breaking into songs like it's suddenly normal. (leave it at karaoke) Retsuko also seems to have regressed as she ignores obvious red flags, choosing instead to pretend everything is fine. The language and aggression have been upped for who knows what reason but it was a major turn off, especially in the last episode. This is the first season that I have no interest in re-watching. I do want another season now that her love life seems to be better (finally!) so we can get back to real-world problems. Just please, no more of......whatever the heck this season was supposed to be.

    Another entertaining season of this down to earth show. Retskuo finds herself in another fantastical series of events, but still retains her relatable down to earth charm. More characters are expanded upon and some new ones are introduced. The only thing I feel is wrong is not enough episodes to go around for the whole cast. Here's hoping for a season 4

    This season was an emotional roller-coaster for me. I've been in love with the characters since season 1, and, although it had a rough start this season, it really made a comeback around the end. I absolutely love these adorable characters and cant wait to see what happens next with Haida and Retsuko!

    Wow this is very Wow and awesome...

    This season has been my absolute favorite one so far for multiple reasons. It's funny, relatable, and outright just adorable. You get pulled into the drama and story so easily. I can never forget the wonderful love story that finally unfolds.
