Anime series told in fifteen-minute segments with an anthropomorphic character-only cast spearheaded by the eponymous red panda Retsuko, who has an accounting job at an office she really doesn't care much for, largely due to her misogynist boss, the porcine Ton, and after a hard day's work she loves to vent her rage to death-metal music at a Karaoke joint. She ultimately wishes to get married and quit her job, and the second season introduces her Beloved Smother, who too wants her daughter married although she insists in arranged ones. The second season also introduces a romance, the donkey Tadano, whom she meets in a driver's education class.

All in all, I definitely enjoyed this series, and can very much relate with Retsuko due to her disposition in life, although I fortunately haven’t had a boss that has driven me over the edge at times, and can take lessons in my paid work experience. The second season also introduces a coworker named Anai, who loves to text people who he felts have wronged him, something I’ll admit to have done online with message board comments and such. Ton also has some redeeming aspects, and more borders on Jerkass Has a Point and even Jerk with a Heart of Gold, and I’d definitely recommend this series especially to furries.
