15. Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas (2018)

Aggretsuko is a very popular anime series on Netflix where all three seasons of the Japanese musical comedy are rated 100% on Rotten Tomatoes. So it is probably safe to assume that the heavy metal Christmas special released on December 20, 2018, would also be a top-level endeavor for subscribers to experience in order to hilariously and aggressively getting into the holiday spirit. Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas is an exceptional entry in the franchise and does a great job at bringing fans a perfectly executed Yuletide experience that fits so well within the show.

Aggretsuko: We Wish You a Metal Christmas sees the main character Retsuko’s newfound and extremely unhealthy obsession with the meaningless validation that social media offers reach a drastic level where it could very well ruin her Christmas experience altogether. Then she is also forced to work overnight on Christmas Eve, further exasperating her noel dilemma. Meanwhile, Haida, who has a crush on Retsuko, continues to struggle to find the courage to ask her out. The final product is another exemplary installment in the Aggrestsuko legacy fans can enjoy every year and a great choice to pick when looking for something special to watch this holiday season.
