Ok, so, what’s this?

This is a list I’ll keep updated during this year about anime series/movies I really enjoyed during 2020 (some… well… in certain ways: looking at you, Scum’s Wish) and that I decided it will be worth rewatching in the following years (maybe before a new season will come out).
It does not contains:

  • series or movies I’ve rewatched this year (all of SAO first and second season, Guilty Crown, etc.)
  • series or movies I’ve enjoyed, but I’m not willing to rewatch again in a near future (like Code GeassAttack on TitansTrinity Seven, etc).
  • series or movies I will for sure rewatch multiple times, like SAO or EVA.

So, here’s the list, in purely alphabetical (in English) order, with some small comments. Related movies, OVAs, etc. are to be considered included by default (live actions not included). To see the original title in Romanji, hover on the Japanese title:

  • After the Rain [恋は雨上がりのように].
    Simple, delicate, gentle, small love story. Why not?
  • Akashic Records of Bastard Magic Instructor [ロクでなし魔術講師と禁忌教典].
    I usually don’t like magic and stuff, but this was fun. (waiting for season 2!)
  • Are You Lost? [ソウナンですか?]
    One of two funniest series of 2020 so far (the other being Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It). Many thanks to the owner of FullMeta for suggesting it to me! (waiting for season 2!)
  • Boarding School Juliet [寄宿学校のジュリエット].
    Another Romeo and Juliet alternative story. Lightweight, fun, enjoyable. (alas season 2 seems like it’s not gonna happen…)
  • Golden Time [ゴールデンタイム].
    This is rather good but a bit complicated. Worth watching by the way if you like the genre.
  • My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU [やはり俺の青春ラブコメはまちがっている.].
    Another rather good serie but not exactly lightweight. Definitely worth watching if you like the genre. (waiting for season 3! Season 3 is airing!)
  • Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny Girl Senpai [青春ブタ野郎はバニーガール先輩の夢を見ない].
    Ok, this was probably the most enjoyable serie I’ve seen this year as it’s a good mix of comedy, science, psicology, social matters… You have to see it!
  • Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend [冴えない彼女の育てかた].
    Characters are so badly matched it’s so funny to watch… mind that this is an otaku-oriented serie, by the way. (waiting for season 3!)
  • Science Fell in Love, So I Tried to Prove It [理系が恋に落ちたので証明してみた。].
    This was, along with Are You Lost?, one of the two funniest series of 2020. Definitely science-oriented, but definitely a must see.
  • Scum’s Wish [クズの本懐].
    That. Was. Hard. It hurt. Badly. Maybe it was just me, after all…
  • Waiting in the Summer [あの夏で待ってる].
    If you were a fan of Please Teacher (I was, and still am), you won’t miss a story set in the same universe.
  • We Never Learn [ぼくたちは勉強ができない].
    Cute girls, clumsy main character, lots of funny situations. One of the favourite comedies of the last years.
  • Wotakoi: Love is Hard for Otaku [ヲタクに恋は難しい].
    Another, funny, enjoyable, otaku-oriented serie. This one with adult relationships.
  • Your Lie in April [四月は君の嘘].
    I’m not gonna lie: it’s a beautiful story, but if you’re just a little bit sentimental, you’ll cry a lot (the good part: I’m not gonna cry for the rest of 2020 since I’m out of tears for the whole year thanks to this serie).

This list will be updated not so regularly… expect some new entries during the autumn.
