- United States
Netflix's one of the most anticipated anime series, Aggretsuko Season 4's renewal was announced in Christmas 2020. The anime accumulates mostly positive reviews and was critically acclaimed, thanks to its captivating storyline. After the third season premiered on August 27, 2020, fans are ardently waiting to know whether there will be any relationship between Haida and Retsuko.
What could be the plot for Aggretsuko Season 4?
Before discussing it let's look at the story so far. The story revolves around an anthropomorphic red panda of 25 years named Retsuko. He works in the accounting department of a Japanese trading firm. He does his work tirelessly and tries to maintain balance with his pushy superiors and co-workers. Haida is the co-worker of Retsuko, working together for five years in an office.
Aggretsuko is the first cartoon series shown in 2018 by Netflix. Aggretsuko is also called by its original Japanese title Aggressive Retsuko. The anime series is based on an eponymous character created by "Yeti" for the mascot company Sanrio.
Although the creators are silent and there are no hints about the storyline of Aggretsuko Season 4, surely the fourth part of the anime will connect the loose threads left in the previous season. It is confirmed from the above Twitter post that Retsuko, Haida, and Fenneko are definitely returning in Season 4. Watching the image we could guess the fourth season will focus mostly on Retsuko and his musical career.
In the previous season, Retsuko and her band members faced several challenges. Viewers also saw Retsuko in financial trouble, and he took a secret role as a member of the Japanese idol group. Meanwhile, Hyodo discovers that the fan who accosted Retsuko also runs that fake idol group's account.
Later, more photos are posted to the fake account, fully exposing Retsuko's work and home addresses and schedule. Despite Hyodo's warning, she keeps assuring them that nothing will happen. She was attacked by a crazy fan in the busy street at the night.
Now Retsuko lives with his mother and takes a break from her job. Her friends are worried. However, Haida promises to help and keep her safe. Retsuko eventually returns to work and shows signs of more open communication with Haida. The fourth season will determine if there is any chance for a romantic relationship between them.
