Netflix is one of the most popular streaming services and it is so for very good reasons. It lets you stream various TV series and Hollywood movies. But what makes Netflix much more popular is its originals. ‘Aggretsuko’ is one of Netflix’s original anime. I really enjoyed watching it. The protagonist of the anime is Retsuko, a red panda. She works as an accountant in a trading firm in Japan. She is really frustrated with her life, especially her job since her seniors are overly assertive and she gets annoyed by her co-workers. To let out her frustration Retsuko goes to Karaoke every night and sings death metal. But she has been at it for almost five years and now it seems that her relationship with her colleagues is undergoing a change.
Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san
The best thing about the slice-of-life genre is that it lets you have all the fun of anime without getting too serious. ‘Karakai Jouzu no Takagi-san’ is something like that. It is a slice-of life-genre anime with an underlying theme of romance. At times the series is really funny. The male protagonist of the series is Nishikata. He is a normal school going, kid. Takagi is the female protagonist of the series. She knows Nishikata like the back of her palm. Isn’t that what friends are supposed to do? Nope. Not in Nishikata’s case. Takagi uses her knowledge about Nishikata to tease him. She knows what makes Nishikata tick and even knows his reactions to her teases. Thus, she always ends up embarrassing him in front of others much to his dislike. He vows to one day get back at Takagi and make her feel embarrassed in front of others.
