Dare we say Sanrio’s newest character is the Kawaii version of ourselves?
Meet Aggretsuko, a single 25-year-old female with blood type A, who endures commuting in a packed train for 30 minutes every day to go to an office in Tokyo. She works as an office associate with a pasa-load of a boss—you know, the boss who likes to give last-minute rush jobs?
These last-minute jobs coupled with interesting
annoying office characters like Director Gorilla and Secretary Washimi make her go into a quiet rage.
She likes going to a karaoke joint and singing heavy metal songs. Aggrretsuku also likes to drink and well, she’s a Scorpio.
Yep, you read that right. Aggretsuko is the latest offering from Sanrio, that fantastic Japanese company that’s brought us Hello Kitty, My Little Twin Stars, My Melody, Badtz-Maru, Keroppi—basically all the cool Kawaii stuff that made us spend too many afternoons in Gift Gate and if it makes Aggretsuko merch available, will make us spend too many afternoons in there again.
