Retsuko is a red panda who works in the Accounting Department of Carrier Man Trading Co., Ltd. She became an employee of the firm that she always looked up to, but she faces frustration every day from pushy superiors and annoying co-workers. She doesn't exactly react to them every single time and tends to avoid conflict, but the stress does pile up and she relieves it by going to a karaoke bar and singing death metal.

Aggretsuko tells the story of many unique characters such as hard-working Director Gori of the Marketing Department and the beautiful Washimi, the secretary of the president, who strive every day to survive in a concrete jungle called 'work.'

The project was created in 2015 by Sanrio through the "Sanrio Salaryman Poll" project, where people voted for a new character based on a white-collar worker.
