This year has been a tough year for everyone because of Covid, everything has been effected from peoples lives to the everyday life of businesses. The Anime industry also had to deal with a lot of delays due to Covid pandemic. Tons of anime have been pushed to 2021 or later. I want to take a look at the anime in 2020 that I enjoyed and why this year was still a good year for anime.
2020 began with some ongoing series to be put on hold because of the pandemic, but that meant some studios were releaseing what they had so far in finished production, even though most of the new series were halted for a few weeks. One anime that I didn’t consider watching, but just decided to watch was Plunderer. Plunderer is an anime thats set “In a post-apocalyptic world dominated by the so-called “Numbers,” each human will have their identity branded with their own “Count,”.” The anime starts off with one of the Main cast Hina who is given a ballet and asked to find the Legendary Ace. It’s a slow series in the begining, but once episode 7 or 8 hits, it gets real good real fast.
Their have been some ongoing anime like Black Clover and Boruto which I watch every week. Black Clover has quickly become one of my favorite ongoing anime just for its overall story and fight scene which in my opinion are well made. Boruto on the other hand has been giving us some anime canon content in the later half of 2020, we will soon be heading into manga canon arcs in 2021 and hopefully seeing some great arcs.
Crunchyroll in 2020 gave us anime from webtoons(which are korean manga). In 2020 my favorites have to be Tower Of God and God Of Highschool. Both are 12 and 13 eps respectively and even though they somewhat condesned version of the Manwha(korean manga) they both are really good. Animation, storytelling and characters are well done.
There are literally other anime that I’ve watched in 2020 that have been good but if I keep going I think this may turn up being a 4,000 word post. Iskeai Anime genre has been prevelent in 2020 and I have have watched mostly all of them. Isekai anime is pretty much been my go to genre, even though I’m a Shounen genre guy.
So, What have been your favorite 2020 Anime? Are you excited for the 2021 season and what shows do you expect to be real good for the 2021 season
