The Fall 2020 anime season, and 2020 as a whole, has finally come to an end (to our displeasure and our delight, respectively). As was the case with the beginning of the season podcast, we came to the conclusion that there was STILL too much anime! That said, it was a blessing, and we took some time to chat about the highs and lows of the season, as well as the hits of the whole year.
Kyle was unfortunately not with us for this recording, but that didn’t stop us from slamming this cast full of stuff. Our highlights include gems like Zack cackling over Matt’s trip into the pit of Hypnosis Mic (easily one of the best shows of the year, fight me), coming down from a heavy-ish discussion about Wandering Witch by way of Love Live!, some legitimate (maybe?) hot takes about some of of the hits(?) of the season, and reassessing some of our takes from the beginning of Fall 2020 cast. There’s a bunch to see, and we had a blast with this one, so hop on in!
The fall 2020 anime season has decided to be merciful to us – it has deigned to not be full of complete and utter suffering shows, unlike its predecessor, which is great. However, there was a price to be paid for this. There is now just too much anime! As a result, we…just go over a bunch of it and probably only hit about half of the shows that are actually airing this season. Kamisama help us all.
Unsurprisingly, with such a huge amount of shows airing this season (or with things just getting back to a normal fall season airing load), we’ve got a lot of great stuff to cover. We gush about how much of a mood Sleepy Princess in the Demon Castle is, the unbridled joy (or newly brided joy?) of TONIKAWA: Over the Moon for You, some surprising hits of the season such as Akudama Drive, Warlords of Sigrdrifa, and Moriarty the Patriot, and we even manage to get in some discussion about the surprising (and not surprising) additions to our drop piles, like Assault Lily: BOUQUET and Noblesse. This is a packed one, so strap in, get comfy, and enjoy the ride!
