I hope they get past the whole Daiy’s on her own thing soon, it gets on my nerves.

Thing I like best at the moment - I’m at episode 5 - is the new Director, funnily enough. He’s a great character.


#1357

Irish actor, just saying.


#1358

He said character, not actor.


#1359

Your mum said character, not actor.


#1360

My mom doesn’t say anything.

She dead.

:disappointed_relieved:


#1361

That must be why she didn’t move much

Aggrettsuko

Retsuko is a Scorpio, Blood Type A, 25 years old. And since she graduated she’s worked in the accounting department of a Tokyo corporation, having to put up with an overbearing boss, his obsequious toady, an overly condescending supervisor, gossipy-co-workers, and a huge work load. Her only outlets for frustration are her friends Fenneko and Haida, and her love of Karaoke. Most nights,she does to a Karaoke parlour alone, books a room, and belts out her frustrations to a death metal backing track.

Oh, and did I mention that Retsuko is a Red Panda? And this is a Sanrio production? This cute Panda scraming death metal tracks about her shitty boss is in canon with Hello Kitty?

It’s one of those things where you kinda can’t believe that this exists. Japanese comedies about corporate life are usually more anodyne than this, in which Retsuko gets drunk, sleeps in, moans about her boss (a literal chauvinist pig, who’s name is a pun on the Japanese term for), plots to leave her job when she can land a husband, and swears when she’s angry. Plus, the metal songs are like full on \m/ metal \m/, very unlike the more mainstream hard rock and metal Japanese bands that have crossed over to anime soundtracks and/or western popularity.

While there is a lot of cynicism in there, it’s also quite heartfelt, and the Netflix show does get more conventionally Japanese anime comedy towards the end. It’s highly enjoyable all the way through and at 10 episodes, each no more than 15 minutes it’s a quick watch. Apparently there are 100 more 1-minute shorts out there, and they used to be on crunchyroll but have been removed. Boo.


#1363

Maybe you just weren’t doing it right.


#1364

That’s highly unlikely


#1365

Once you eliminate the impossible, whatever remains, no matter how improbable, must be the truth.


#1366

You used the word maybe, which doesn’t sound like elimination of anything.


#1367

I was trying to save your feelings.


#1368

That’s less believable than my being bad at necrophilia


#1369

Just because you don’t hear complaints doesn’t mean you’re good.


#1370

if you don’t leave feedback you accept the service as given by default.


#1371

There’s nothing more fascinating that seeing nerds play the ‘I fucked your Mom’ game. Guys will just say I fucked your Mom and move on, but nerds will make it an endless games of oneupmanship that lasts for hours. It’s always brilliant.


#1372

Your moms always brilliant!

#1374

My safe word is Martha


#1375

So is mine!
