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. Sorry folks, it’s just science. Here’s the list, and let us know what you think.
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.
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.
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.

Facing extinction at the hands (claws?) of the Gadoll, mankind has found safety inside the mobile fortress called “Deca-Dence”. A young girl named Natsume is locked into career of maintaining the ship, but her true desire is to be a solider fighting the Gadoll.
We suffer through the small group of new shows airing next season so that you don’t have to.
