Watching this new Gundam anime about the origins of Char Aznable, I just realized that the mobile suits were literally a paradigm shift in how war was waged in the world of Gundam. I’ve always watch Gundam shows more like military movies or action movies where battles had lots of explosions and death. But in this anime, the creators really made it clear that mobile suits were immensely powerful over the battleships and cruisers.
What do you get when you cross Sanrio with Death Metal? Aggrestuko! With the character design by Sanrio, this isn’t just your everyday cutesy anime show. The show is about the “life” of an anthropomorphic female red panda named Retsuko dealing with everyday work and personal issues ranging from misogynistic boss to dating and her coping mechanism…. karaoking to death metal song 9091-89.
I find this show to be a hilarious take of Japanese office life. It’s one of those shows that manages to perfectly balance that fine line between something that covers everyday office issues in a comedic light hearted fashion.
