|Incompetent women are such a pain in the ass,
but they're better than the competent ones, am I right?
Ton (トン) is the director of the accounting department and the primary antagonist of the Netflix Original series Aggretsuko.
He is Retsuko's direct boss and makes her work life extremely difficult.
Ton's appearance is based on the Duroc pig. He has rosy brown skin across his entire body and is very overweight. In the shorts, Ton is constantly sweating and wiping it away with a handkerchief. He is seen both in and out of work wearing a white dress shirt, green tie, black pants, and brown shoes.
It's hard to say what Ton is really like. Towards Tsunoda, he is always blushing and showing off his golfing skill, giving her slack for not finishing her work (then passing it off onto Retsuko). Towards Retsuko, he is rude, sexist, and goes out of his way to make her uncomfortable, overwhelmed, and stressed at work.
But when Retsuko was going through a rough patch during her relationships, Ton could tell she was having a hard time and not only gave her slack at work, but also gave her some heartfelt advice. In addition, while he was drunk at the company engagement party, he admitted that Retsuko has the potential to become a "boss" someday, citing his own past experiences and showing that he has some faith in her abilities. He doesn't seem to have much interaction with male employees besides Komiya, but all of the employees are extremely disturbed when Ton acts nice.
Ton appears rather intimidated by his own family as he cringes at the thought of spending his weekend with them at Family Appreciation Day, especially by his own daughters which he dotes over much to his own chagrin. Nonetheless, he loves them citing how much they support him in life to Retsuko.
Not much is known about Ton's wife, but she appears to be a quiet and kind woman.
Komiya is not so much a friend of Director Ton as he is a follower. Whenever Director Ton insults a worker or complains about his working conditions, Komiya is quick to catch on and take his objections to new levels. He encourages and agrees with Ton's bad behaviors, which makes more chaos for the staff. They also both have a common interest: golfing.
