Retsuko is an adorable anthropomorphic red panda who spends her days as a somewhat stereotypical Japanese office worker. But wait until she hits the karaoke bar at night, where she transforms into a metalhead raging about her daily frustrations and struggles! She’s so relatable and adorable, and we’re thrilled to bring you a list of some of our favorite Aggretsuko merch finds from across the internet.
Tomorrow Is A New Day T-shirt
We love how positive Retsuko manages to be, despite the constant frustrations she faces. So whenever you’ve had a rough time, remember that “tomorrow is a new day!”
While vaccines are rolling out, we think after 2020 we’re all going to be a lot more conscious of germs and health in the future. Help keep yourself and others safe with this adorable hand sanitizer holder, designed to fit most pocket sanitizer bottles.
Speaking of mixing things up, this t-shirt does a fantastic job of showing both sides of Retsuko’s personality. From normal office worker to screaming metal fan, wearing this shirt you can represent that we all might be different than we appear.
This cold drink cup can be customized to the color of your liking, and the color changes when you add a cold liquid! You can also pick the color of your foil, which is the fabulous rage outline in the picture.
There are any number of locations where you might be required to have an ID badge. If you’re going to wear one, why not carry it in this handy lanyard featuring Retsuko and company? It comes with the pictured charm as well!
This simple raging Retsuko cross stitch pattern is beautifully detailed, but easy enough for beginners. Not only that, but this kit comes with everything you need except scissors! The seller specifically states that gift purchases can be specially wrapped and include a card (for an additional cost).
While we know the copier is the same as the one in Retsuko’s office, we can’t help but be reminded of the movie “Office Space”. Of course the concept of a rage & calm card game based on Aggretsuko is a thing of beauty in and of itself, but for a moment consider the crossover potential. And for that mental image, you’re welcome!
Make folks do a double take with this Aggretsuko face mask! Available in small and large sizes, this mask is especially good when you can’t actually let out your frustrations verbally. Let Retsuko’s rage face send the message for you!
If you thought the perfect office mug didn’t exist, we’re thrilled to inform you that you are wrong, and here it is! Let your coworkers know that if they treat you poorly, they could end up being the subject of a death metal rant.
The bento is becoming more and more popular outside of Japan, where licensed designs have been common for a long time. There’s no surprise then that this incredibly cute Aggretsuko bento exists, and you can snag one for yourself easily on Amazon!
Many ships can exist in any fandom, and Aggretsuko has quite a few considering all of Retsuko’s romantic mishaps. This handcrafted fan art print is a fantastic way to let everyone know which one you support, a must-have for Retsuko x Haida fans!
Alright, this one might seem a little silly, but we think it’s pretty fun, especially if you pair it with the Retsuko face mask earlier on the list. It’d be easy cosplay that protects your vision (since these are UV protection lenses) and your health at the same time.
There’s no doubt that Washimi and Gori are two of the most badass women on the whole show, and there’s no doubt they live by the message on this shirt: “Strong women support other women.” We appreciate that the image shows them doing their take no prisoners walk as well!
For some, there’s nothing more exciting than the element of surprise. Purchase one of these blind boxes and get one of these vinyl keychains (some of the different variations are pictured on the side). Just remember, the blind box is like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re going to get!
If you can’t get enough of the blind box action, check out this adorable plush line! Buy a box and get a random mini plush of one of the show’s many characters, or buy a few and see how many you can find. Remember, it’s a blind box so there are no guarantees, but that’s part of the fun!
If you prefer dangle earrings to the wooden posts we shared earlier, or if you have multiple piercings, you may also want to consider these handmade calm and rage Retsuko pairs. We love that you can purchase both pairs as a set, because you can wear them to match your mood or mix them up!
Some days you just can’t with anything, not work, not adulting, not even sitting upright. This shirt is for one of those days! Featuring Retsuko in her comfy clothes, flopped on her stomach, the simple statement of “#mood” says it all.
Another lovely Etsy find, this handmade wooden art would bring rustic cheer to any home. If you like, the seller is also willing to give it a felt backing to be used as a coaster, or you can get it with the sawtooth back to hang on the wall.
Show everyone your true status as a metal fan as well as representing your love of Aggretsuko with this backpack. We thoroughly enjoy the stark black and white color scheme of the print as well, and think it adds to the death metal feel.
There are quite a number of Aggretusko pop sockets on Amazon; this one happens to be our favorite, but we highly recommend checking out the rest of the offerings. Let us know if you disagree, and which is your favorite!
It may not currently be the season (or it may when you’re reading this, the internet is forever and all), but we had to add this sweatshirt with some of the main Aggretsuko cast members in an “ugly Christmas sweater” style. Wear this to your next office holiday party, and maybe take a photo for Instagram! Just make sure you don’t get TOO into it.
One of the most relatable things about Retsuko, besides her work frustrations, is her constant struggle with romance. While her digital boyfriend Seiya might not be “real”, he certainly looks great, whether in VR or as this handmade charm!
Our last item on our list is really a two-parter; the Retsuko character here is an expansion for the Funkoverse strategy base games! You’ll want to make sure you already have one of those or pick it up with this expansion, but we think this detailed raging Retsuko alone makes it worth while.
This is the end of our list, and we hope you’ve enjoyed it! We had a blast finding these unique, creative items to express our love of Aggretsuko, and hope you see some items of interest too. Remember that even if right now you’re so frustrated with your coworkers, your love life, or your parents that you could scream: “Tomorrow is a new day!”
