**SPOILERS DONT READ THIS REVIEW IF YOU HAVENT WATCHED THE SHOW** I’ve watched the whole entirety of Aggresuko since 2018 when I was a broke student who had no job and here I am in 2023 having a job so I’m a lot more relatable to the characters then ever before lol. It’s just mad that it has finally ended and yeah I have to say overall it was pretty good but the final episode was really the one that was a bit of a turn-off. I honestly thought it was pretty rushed in terms regarding the mystery surrounding who the real Truck-kun was and the girl who Haida met at the Internet cafe. There were no hints or even deep details to fully explain the backgrounds of these side characters which was a shame. I mean I think the final episode needed to be an hour long than 33 minutes if they were badly running out of time to explain everything. It was cute though that Haida and Retsuko got hitched all of sudden, although I really wanted to see what they were like on their wedding pictures, why do this to us?! 😭 I even liked Haidas bro (yes he’s an azz I know but he a fine boy yall xD) To add, I was so happy that the OTM girl band came back for more bangers so definitely going to put the songs on repeat! I’m disappointed that it didn’t have a proper hooray in my personal opinion but that doesn’t mean I didn’t enjoy it cause I really did. It did show real life scenarios in terms of unemployment and politics which I appreciated but it’s basically the final episodes fault that it didn’t have the same flow as the other episodes….
The tale of Aggretsuko has undergone significant changes over the seasons. It started as the story of an overworked office lady who was bullied in season 1. This resonated with a lot of people, making it the huge success that it was. However, towards the end of seasons 4 and 5, the show became less relevant, with slice-of-life stories that were more or less insignificant. It seems like the show turned into a cash cow for everyone involved, just churning out more stories for the sake of it. This is a shame. Moving on to season 5, the final season (not like AoT's final season, lol), it was okay. That's the best way to describe the entire season. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either. I'll give them credit for including politics without making me cringe too hard. Most anime that touch on politics or pseudo-politics (like students creating hierarchical structures) turn me off because of how dumb they are. Aggretsuko did better, so thumbs up for that. However, I still have to criticize how they crammed the future developments of the show into a one-minute montage, instead of giving it a proper five minutes to wrap up the show. Overall, I give it a 6 out of 10. If you've watched the previous seasons and want to finish the series off, go for it, but don't expect too much. If you're just starting out with Aggretsuko, you might want to consider stopping after season 2 or 3.
