The Aggressive Retsuko's metal career continues.
'Aggretsuko' is undoubtedly one of the cutest and most entertaining anime series on Netflix to date.
Also known as Aggressive Retsuko, the series premiered on Netflix in April 2018, followed by the second season in June 2019 and the third season in August 2020.
The anime series follows Retsuko, a single anthropomorphic red panda, as she navigates through life from a normal employee of a Japanese trading firm to becoming a member of a rock band.
After 3 successful seasons, let's find out if the anime series will be returning for more.
Yes, yes, yes! The hit anime series is officially confirmed to return for a fourth season.
The renewal announcement came in Christmas 2020 and read: “Aggretsuko is coming back for a fourth season of romance, rock, and RAGE!”
Honestly, with the impressive record of the show, the renewal is no longer surprising.
'Aggretsuko' is currently enjoying an 8.1 out of 10-star rating on IMDB and a 93% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, not to mention an active fan-base that's constantly asking for further seasons.
Netflix didn't give an official release date yet, but we can expect season 4 to arrive in October 2021, based on the previous season's schedule.
There is a roughly 14-month gap in the production cycle of seasons 1, 2, and 3. If season 4 follows this pattern, we will likely see 'Aggretsuko' return in the fall of 2021.
Of course, we couldn't discount the possibility of the global health crisis affecting anime production. We'll make sure to keep you updated once we get new information.
Warning: Contain season 3 spoilers
Season 3 was filled with different challenges that greatly affected Retsuko as well as the rest of the band.
With Retsuko now staying in the spotlight more than ever, unwanted attention's bound to get in her way.
Towards the end of season 3, we saw how Retsuko suffered after encountering a toxic fan.
The deranged fan attacked Retsuko in broad daylight, but luckily Haida is there to intervene.
The attack made Retsuko traumatized. She ended up shutting her doors to the world and going to her mom after taking a leave from her career.
But thanks again to Haida, Retsuko made a decision to return before the credits roll.
For season 4, we are expecting to see Haida keep his promise to protect Retsuko despite the latter rejecting his feelings in season 3.
Retsuko may have made a conscious decision to return, but that doesn't mean that things will be easier for her now.
We are expecting to see Retsuko overcome more obstacles in her musical career in the upcoming season.
