2020 bad but anime good? The GLORIO crew chats about the top 10 shows of the year.
We can finally say good bye to 2020, but before we move on we’re going to take a final look at the best shows of the year. If this is your first time joining us, our Top 10 list is based on votes from the GLORIO crew using a weighted scoring method guaranteed to produce a 100% accurate list.

When people finish their day and hurry home, his day starts. His diner is open from midnight to seven in the morning. They call it “Midnight Diner”.

With so much extra time on my hands this year, I got through loads of J-drama! That’s a lie of course, as I marathoned a bunch this month just so this wasn’t barebones. Come read if they were trash or not!
Like many people, this year has been rather busy for me for a variety of reasons both personal and practical. So rather than my usual arbitrary awards show with bespoke categories, I’ll just be going through all the anime I watched in 2020 in chronological order and giving each one the words I think they deserve, for either good or ill.
I have nothing to say about 2020 that we all don’t already know, and when anime was delayed and we had nothing to do in the middle of the year, I went back to ye olde manga sources and started reading some random stuff.
It’s hard to look back on this dumpster fire of a year and get enthusiastic about anything, but hey, at least there was some good anime? And so we are kicking off our annual look back at all the GLORIO anime and anime adjacent things we watched in 2020.
Before we get too deep into wrapping up 2020 anime, the GLORIO crew takes a look at what’s coming in the Winter 2021 season.

Touma premieres his highly anticipated new light novel “I Can’t Believe My Childhood Friend Died and Also A Clown Was There!”.
Angered and confused by the revelation of Calibur’s true identity, Kento sets out to confront him one-on-one, while the villains plan to ensnare the other Riders in battles of their own.
Halfway through the season we welcome back Gal and Dino, catch up on some other anime trash we haven’t discussed in a while, and check in for another Kamen Rider update.
After checking back in with HQ, Headkeeper moves back into the Imperial Capital to extract their spies and find out what exactly the Empire has been hiding.
Determined to confront his father and finally discover the motivation behind his betrayal, Kento recruits Touma and Rintaro for a final showdown with Calibur. The result of their battle is a shocking revelation about the dark Rider’s true identity….
With King of Arthur out of his reach, Calibur plans to seize a new source of power. Meanwhile, Daishinji decides to express himself through music. Also, Durian battles Walnut.
We are still talking about Great Pretender somehow (thanks Netflix), discussing the anime versus the game with Magatsu Wahrheit Zuerst, and we finally get off some Genshin Impact takes.
