As the new season approaches, many in the anime community are preparing (or have already prepared) their watchlist. With long awaited sequels, popular manga adaptations and some new additions, here is my list of 5 anime you should watch during Summer 2020!
1) Re:ZERO kara Hajimeru Isekai Seikatsu 2nd Season Part 1
Ever since the first season released back in Spring 2016, Re:Zero became one of the most popular isekais out there. Re:Zero 2nd Season (as it has been shortened to) was supposed to be airing on April but because of the COVID-19 outbreak, it got delayed to July 2020. If you’re in for some
s̸̬̠̍̚ư̆̐͋̆f̿͛͆͐͏̭̘͚͓̗̯f̛͇̳͖́ȇ͚͕̊ͅr̰̞͈͈͐͑ͫͧ͌̍̌ï̿̅ͭͪ҉ņ̥̬ͤ̊ͮ͐̃͑̆ḡ̛̣͈̱̙̆͋̅̓ , crazy plot, and a lot of bloody action scenes, then Re:Zero 2nd Season is for you.
2) Kanojo, Okarishimasu
Based on the well-known manga by Reiji Miyajima, ‘Kanojo, Okarishimasu’ is a really hyped anime. As a man who has read the manga myself, I can guarantee you that this show is going to good. It begins with a college student named Kazuya who decides to rent a girlfriend after breaking up with his first one, from that point on he goes through a lot of unexpected events which will surely make you want to see more. If you’re looking for a Chad MC, comedic harem, and mild ecchi, then ‘Kanojo, Okarishimasu’ is for you.
3) Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai!
Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai is another manga adaptation which is really hyped. IT is about a student who just wants to live a normal life, yet is always pestered by his underclassman, who always wants to hang out. The reason why I’ll be watching this show is because of the underclassman, Uzaki. If you’re in for some more comedy, wholesome (maybe) romance, and PLOT ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°), then Uzaki-chan wa Asobitai is for you.
4) Sword Art Online Alicization War of Underworld Part 2
Love it or hate it, A-1 Pictures is back with the long-awaited sequel to War of Underworld Part 1. This season is probably going to be the most eventful season yet as Sword Art Online gets back up on its feet with Alicization after the tarnishing of its reputation from the Alfheim arc (which I agree, is trash). Man, I can’t wait to see how the fanbase would react to the return of Cheat Code Kirito (there are many names, this is just one). If you’re in for some really well animated fights, OP Harem, and OP MC, then SAO Alicization War of Underworld Part 2 is for you (though, I highly recommend watching the previous seasons).
5) Maou Gakuin no Futekigousha
Since I’ve recommended too many sequels and manga adaptions on this list, here is a new Light Novel adaptation. It’s not a surprise that this show is going to be about and OP MC as it is adapted by Silver Link; They have produced many OP MC titles such as Kenja no Mago, Bofuri, Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry. The reason why I’ve put it on this list, despite it being a seeming average show, is because I’m always in for OP MC. So, if you’re looking for an extensive and complicated plot then this show isn’t for you (unless it does have a good plot, which is unlikely with these kinds of shows).
The Bottom Line
This list is just a recommendations list that was compiled from my watchlist. There are a lot of other anime being released next season but most of the hyped ones are sequels (can’t wait to watch Oregairu’s new season!). What anime are YOU going to watch next season? Leave a comment!
