Disapointment: Hetronormative Romance Drama and Capitalism

Review of Aggressive Retsuko
by cat
Posted on February 28th, 2021
Negative 2
Overall Rating

Story: 3

Young Proto enters a relationship but feels like their needs aren´t meet.

A massive downfall from the first season for me. The main plot of Retsuko blindely following a seemingly "easy" fix and being confronted with how life doesn´t always follows this rules - is not only already done in s1 but here also added with weird awe-ing over the super rich and weird ideas about work and self worth being tied to it. 

Animation: 5

Chibi Style

Not my style but as far as I can tell done okay.

Enjoyment: 2

Massive Letdown after season 1

As an anticapitalist disabled person the ending of the romance storyline is just yikes all over. And its cool that Retsuko says no to a relationship that doesn´t give her something but the show never really shows us what she wants instead - the idea of marriage and kids, just seems to fall too nicely in whats already expected of people. 

The subplot of Gori and Washamis fight really damed by enjoyment because their supportive relationship was like my fav part of s1. It also really makes the hetronormativity of the show shine though and how much a story about this conflict would benefit of less of that.
