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.
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 looks at the notable, for better or worse, anime coming up next season.
We talk Death Stranding, say goodbye to Pokemon Sun & Moon, Jel vents about Granblue Fantasy season 2, and of course we cover our regularly scheduled anime talk.
We catch up on anime and Jel finally gets an excuse to rant about Robotech.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Marlin cover the good, the bad, and the disappointing shows from the Fall season.
After the war, cybernetically enhanced super soldiers known as Extends struggle to reintegrate themselves into society. Their bodies modified to the point of barely resembling humans, they are powerful, dangerous, and sometimes unhinged. Often resorting to becoming criminals or mercenaries, the world has become rife with Extend related crime. Inui Juuzou is an Extend, with no memory of his past or how his entire head got replaced with a gun. Now he lives as a private eye, taking on Extend related cases.
Aqua fights off a dreaded anime cold long enough to make fun of my terrible taste in anime, then we preview the upcoming Fall 2019 anime season.
