Why it’s worth your time:

What if Hello Kitty had an office job and a complex inner life? Aggretsuko, a cartoon series from Hello Kitty creator Sanrio, answers that question. Retsuko, the protagonist, is a cute red panda with a dead-end job in accounting. Polite and patient during the workday, she releases her frustrations in the evening when she sings death metal karaoke. The series skewers every type of annoying co-worker: the golf-loving, incompetent pig of a boss, the weasel who sucks up to him, the middle-aged hippopotamus, and the snake who takes credit for your work.

The takeaway:

You never knew you needed to watch a cute red panda sprout fangs as she sings along to rageful death metal, but you do.

Watch it with:

Your office pals – and rivals – during your snack break (episodes are only 15 minutes). Fans of other not so secretly for adults cartoons like Bojack Horseman, Tuca and Bertie, and Adventure Time.

Worth noting  Season 3 just arrived on Netflix.  Also: content warning for cynicism about co-workers, weddings, yoga, and the workplace. Also, you should probably not watch it with your boss.

Where to find it:  Netflix
