7 Anime to Look Forward This 2020 Fall Season
This Summer season was definitely a crazy one. Clearly the pandemic also impacted the Anime industry, which translated into fewer and less than optimal quality titles. Even so, there were a few Animes that were quite good, such as The God of High School, OreGairu’s third season, Kanojo Okarishimasu, and Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha. Fortunately, this Fall season seems a nice compensation. There are over 70 Anime coming out, including many promising ones.
For this article, I’ll go over the seven titles that I’m more excited about. I’ll be focusing on Anime debuting this season, but if you are into Is It Wrong to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?, The Irregular at Magic High School, and Hakyuu, you absolutely should follow the sequels coming out. Without further ado, here are the main Anime you should check out this 2020 Fall Season.
I’ve been listening to my best friend praising this story for years now. It’s one of the few Manga she actually finished, and I was quite curious when I saw that the Anime was debuting this season. Obviously, the first thing I did was watching Nobless: Awakening – an ONA that works as the introduction for the series. I loved it. Even if it came out four years ago, the animation was pretty smooth, and the story looked alright. It’s also been a while since I’ve watched an Anime about vampires, so I’m quite excited to follow this one throughout the season.
Kamisama ni Natta Hi (The Day I Became a God)
If you haven’t realized already, I’m quite a romance lover. Kamisama ni Natta Hi just seems the typical Anime I’m gonna love. The main characters seem quite interesting, and I got those high school vibes that I love from the trailer. Not only that, but the animation seems to be quite polished, and I enjoyed the actors’ voices a lot. Basically, it just checks out everything I want from an Anime. The story itself is a bit mysterious. A girl appears claiming she’s a goddess and that the world is going to end in 30 days. I might be wrong, but it seems the excellent premise for an emotional ride. I absolutely want to see how this one is going to develop.
Tonikaku Kawaii (TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You)
Another romantic comedy. While this one seems to follow the more traditional route, I still want to check whether it’s worthwhile or not. Here we have a boy and a girl falling in love at first sight while attending high school who promise to marry one day. What really caught my attention was that the story itself unrolls a few years later, when the girl comes back to Nasa’s life, saying she’s her wife. I haven’t watched many romantic comedies showcasing adults, so maybe this one will do the trick. I mean, I’m an adult myself, so it might be a little more realistic than the romances I usually watch.
Jujutsu Kaisen (Sorcery Fight)
I always try to watch (at least) one shounen every season. This fall, it seems Jujutsu Kaisen will be the best option, mainly because it seems to have a darker aspect to it. The Anime portrays demons and other supernatural creatures, which is something that makes me interested instantly. Not only that, but MAL even tags the Anime with the horror genre… It’s been a while since I’ve watched a good horror Anime, so hopefully, this will deliver what I’m looking for.
Ikebukuro West Gate Park (IWGP)
IWGP is another ‘dark’ entry on this list. I can’t help it, though; I just love these types of stories. In this case, we have a story about a guy who’s friends with a youth gang leader. Although not a member himself, Makoto is known for helping these delinquents in solving disputes due to his calm personality. In other words, a normal person who’s friends with a bunch of criminals and helps them to (hopefully) be better people. I’m sure this is going to be an enjoyable watch and, if done correctly, an emotional ride as well.
Muno na Nana (Talentless Nana)
This is one of those titles that can go really well or really wrong. The story’s premise seems interesting enough, and the animation looks quite good, but the main reason why I’m picking this one up is its genres. MAL tags Muno na Nana in the psychological and thriller genres, so I’m expecting an Anime that starts cute because of the animation but goes dark real quick. Something like Yukusoku no Nerverland or Made in Abyss. From the trailer, I don’t think it will be as good as those masterpieces. Still, even if it’s only average, I know I’ll enjoy it.
Yuukoku no Moriarty (Moriarty the Patriot)
I don’t even know how many times I’ve tried to watch Animes focusing on British detectives and ended up dropping them. I don’t understand why… The premise always seems fascinating, and the animation showcasing England in the 19th century always looks amazing. However, I simply lose interest sooner or later. Hopefully, Tuukoku no Moriarty is going to change this. The main reason why I believe it will, is that the story highlights the main antagonist and how it became the first and only criminal consultant. Most times, antagonists are better written than the protagonists, so let’s see if I’m able to finish this one.
And that’s it! What about you? What are the upcoming Animes you’re looking more forward to? Tell me in the comments ?
