Zigg looks back on a year that soared and stumbled in equal measure, and picks out the stories that shone the brightest.
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.
We tie a neat bow on a messy season, including final thoughts about Appare Ranman, DECA-DENCE, and whatever else we managed to finish.
Coming down the home stretch of a weird season with show ending at odd times, we wrap up Great Pretender (for now), Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise, and Kamen Rider Zero-One.
We talk anime business with the sale of Crunchyroll and the death of KissAnime, then on to our usual batch of Summer shows.
We check out the return(s) of Millionaire Detective – Balance: UNLIMITED and Appare Ranman, then talk about the other shows this season we have somehow convinced ourselves to keep watching.
The crew discusses the impact of COVID-19 on the anime industry and catches up on shows we’re watching, while we still can…
In one of our longest episodes ever, the crew tries to tackle all the notable shows from the Spring 2020 season.
Genius mechanic Appare and beleaguered samurai Kosame find themselves shipwrecked and penniless in Los Angeles, California. They decide to participate in the Trans-America Wild Race Big Boss Grand Prix in a custom made steam car to win the $10,000 grand prize and buy their way back to Japan.
The crew looks at the notable, for better or worse, anime coming up next season.
