Summer 2020 ‘Preview’
I’d mentioned in a previous post that I wasn’t that interested in the Summer 2020 season, but that doesn’t mean I’m not planning on watching anything! Thought I would give you guys an idea of what I am planning on watching before we get around to the mid-season recommendations!
First I will let you know what I am not watching so I don’t get flooded with hate for not including it on the list.
The God of High School
I’m just not that into fighting anime. I may watch it eventually, especially as I am easily swayed by seeing small clips, memes, and fan art on the internet (probably half the anime I watch is the result of this). I also find myself not being a fan of shows that are highly rated on MAL. I’ve made it very clear that I like trash. Anyway, for now, I’m not watching it.
Re:Zero kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 2nd Season
Re:Zero is such a great series and made me chuckle, made me cry like a 3rd grader, and has plenty of adorable girls in it. I will be watching this (and it ends up being an exception to my dislike of well-rated shows).
Monster Musume no Oishasan
You know at first I thought this was a sequel or spin-off of Monster Musume no Iru Nichijou but it turns out it just has a similar title. There’s a lot of other similarities though. It’s about a human doctor who takes care of monster girls and has a very jealous snek girl as his assistant.
See, similar. Anyway, watching it as the first episode was somewhat amusing.
Peter Grill to Kenja no Jikan
This show is only 12 minutes long. I don’t think they could have made it any longer as the premise is so low brow I am not sure even the depravity of anime writers could have made a 24-minute show out of it. It’s one of those shows that you either watch uncensored or not at all (and will probably be much better on Blu-Ray). Basically, Peter is the strongest dude in all the land and that makes all the girls want his seed. I assume Dwayne Johnson has similar issues.
Nisekoi, only instead of an arrangement by their fathers to keep the peace of the city, this show starts off with quasi-prostitution and a couple of old ladies forcing the protagonists into a fake relationship.
I’m only through the first episode so far, which was amusing and cute, especially when Chizuru slips into her real personality, and maybe – MAYBE – if the show doesn’t become to cliche I will continue to watch it. The poster has multiple girls on it, so I am of course worried it will become a harem anime, but we’ll see.
Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!
The first episode made me laugh quite a bit. The main character, Uzaki, is annoying as hell, but she’s also adorable and hilarious, so I think I will continue to watch this one.
You have to suspend your disbelief for a bit mainly for the idea that someone who is maybe four feet tall and has boobs the size of medicine balls is able to stand upright. I’m probably going to be made to feel bad about saying this and have my Woke card revoked when it’s revealed she has dwarfism or some other terminal disease, but I’ll cross that bridge when I get to it.
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru. Kan
The third season of Love Comedy, probably the second most anticipated anime of the season since Re:Zero was bumped from last season to this one thanks to COVID-19.
I will be watching this, but I think I will rewatch the previous season first since it’s been a while since I have seen it and I hate finding myself in a position where I don’t know what the hell is going on.
Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha: Shijou Saikyou no Maou no Shiso, Tensei shite Shison-tachi no Gakkou e
Probably my favorite show so far. The demon king is reborn, is a month old, and is already in high school, developing a harem but it’s kind of cute, etc.
This show is funny, has cool magic effects, and has some pretty likable and cute characters. Even one of the antagonists turned side protagonist was quite unlikeable when you first met her but is now transformed into an adorable sidekick.
That’s it for this post. You can keep up with my watching habits, comments on particular episodes, and retweets of funny cats on my Twitter feed.
