Haida and Retsuko are co-workers in a Japanese trading firm. They are working together for five years. Retsuko is an anthropomorphic panda, which means she is having every human characteristic.

In the last season, we found Retsuko and his other band members have faced several challenges. Besides, Retsuko is in financial trouble and taking a secret role as a member of the Japanese idol group. Meanwhile, Hyodo discovers that a fan who accosted Retsuko also runs that fake idol group's account. 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.

Although the creators are silent on the plot of Aggretsuko Season 4, still Netflix's announcement regarding Season 4 during Christmas 2020 hinted at the plot. The Twitter post comes with a picture of Retsuko wearing a Santa hat and red dress, and seemingly announcing the coming of Aggretsuko Season 4 at a microphone, while also wishing Merry Christmas to all. No wonder Fenneko and Haida are seen in the picture standing beside Retsuko.
