Anime 2020 – A Comprehensive List

Anime 2020 – A Comprehensive List

2020 is an optimistic year for anime fans since there is a lot of highly anticipated anime lined up. This Anime 2020 list will highlight some of the best anime this year.


Date Aired: January 9, 2020



Plunderer is an anime series that is set up in a world ruled by numbers. So basically, everyone has a goal of keeping their number or better known as “count” high as it also indicates their social status. The higher your number is the higher your status in society. Also, a high number could also mean better skills and more power. Sadly, when your number becomes 0, you will be sent to the Abyss. 

The main characters in this anime are Hina and Licht. Both are interesting characters and definitely, their story would be exciting to watch.

Plunderer has great anime so far being able to watch its first 3 episodes. I also would give a thumbs up to the nice character details – it has been constantly nice so far. The opening and ending theme songs are nice too. 

Though there is still a lot to see in this anime, it certainly among the promising ones this year. It’s a shounen adventure and action anime that you don’t want to miss out on.

BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense.

Date aired: Jan 8, 2020

One of the best anime this year 2020 would certainly be BOFURI: I Don’t Want to Get Hurt, so I’ll Max Out My Defense. It offers a different twist on fantasy isekai anime shows.

What I liked best about Bofuri is it’s more focused on entertainment and adventure. So far, watching 6 episodes I did not see any serious part of this anime. It’s something that I think would continue the entire series. So if you simply want to enjoy the isekai genre, you’ll certainly love this.

It also has emphasized its gaming characteristics like leveling, acquiring skills, game events, guilds and a lot more. Thus, online gamers would certainly love this.

The main characters Maple and Sally are really cute and fun to watch especially Maple. She is a newbie when it comes to online gaming but you’ll love to see how he defeats anyone who tries to battle her.

When it comes to art, music, and animation, everything is great. It’s really exciting to see what adventures they will take especially not that they already have their guild.

Darwin’s Game

Date aired: Jan 4, 2020

At first, I really think that this anime will not be that good. However, after watching the first episode, I got hooked. Darwin’s Game is an action anime with a touch of gaming. Our main character Kaname got invited in a mysterious game and after accepting it, he became part of the game without knowing the risks.

In the game, he met other interesting characters like Shuka, Rein, Souta, Sui and others. Together, they try to survive the game and find a way on how to finish it.

The action scenes in this anime are exciting and fun to watch. The MC is not too overpowered which I kinda like. He started as a weak player but there are signs of his potentials. He slowly gets used to his Sigil or power as the anime progresses. It’s definitely one of the best this year especially when it comes to the Game category.


Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun

Date Aired: January 9, 2020



This anime is also known as Toilet-bound Hanako-kun.

The first thing I noticed with this anime is the different art style. It’s not the usual but its certainly cool enough to keep the anime interesting. Though it’s colorful, it’s not that bright compared to other anime like Plunderer which gives the anime a slightly dark feel. However, you’ll be surprised this anime has a good sense of comedy.

Now, one thing for sure, I think this anime would be hit. It has it all, demon, action, unique art style, interesting story, comedy, drama and also a love story. Even though I have only watched the first 3 episodes so far, I’m really looking forward to the rest of the episodes. 

It’s fun watching this anime due to the comedy and the likable characters Hanako and Yashiro. I definitely would recommend watching it.


Date Aired: January 9, 2020



So far, I have only watched the first episode of this anime. Now if you are a cat lover, then most definitely you will like this anime. The main characters in this show include catgirls – Chocola, Vanilla, Maple Cinnamon, Azuki and Coconut. I personally don’t have much interest in this type of anime but surely it will be a good one for the right audience. 

The anime is under the Comedy and Romance genre. So far, the comedy side was not able to make me laugh but I know in the coming episodes there will be more funny scenes. And the romance part is something that we would still have to look out for.   

I think this romance anime will have a long way to go. 



Date Aired: January 9, 2020

Dorohedoro is a dark-themed horror anime with lots of action and a slight taste of comedy. It’s a bloody anime and you’ll discover it right from the start. I think this anime is best for those who are looking for a new action-packed anime to start the year. 

The setting is in a dark place where there is no order, people could just kill anyone. There are guys who could use some magic and those who are very good at it are called “Sorcerers”. These magic-users goes inside this place using a door and test there magic on people. 

The main characters in this anime series are Kaiman and Nikaido. The story revolves around the journey of Kaiman aided by Nikaido in search of the sorcerer who turned his face into a reptile. They try to capture magic users(most of the time ends up being killed) in order to find a solution to Kaiman’s problem and hopefully turn him into a human again.

Dorohedoro is an anime of death and carnage so if you like this theme, your in for a treat. I think the action scenes in this anime is something that we all should look forward to. 

Pet Anime – Amazon Prime



The highlight of this anime are people who are known as PET. They are guys who have the ability to get into people’s minds and control their memories at the same time. This power is pretty useful when it comes to solving mysteries. However, this power does not come with a price. If the person’s heart is not strong enough it will make you insane.
