2020 Winter Anime Season Roundup

This post is probably going to be a bit briefer than the one I wrote for last season. Mostly because I’ve been a little better about actually following up on the seasonal anime series I’ve been watching here on my blog. Helped by the fact that I seem to have managed to find a bit of a groove again when it comes to a weekly upload schedule.

As we’re already starting the Spring season, and I’ve not watched anything yet except Digimon, I’ll just follow up all the shows mentioned in the Winter 3 Episode Rule series and link to any and all relevant articles I’ve already written on that show.

I kind of just forgot to follow up on those shows and how things ended up panning out with them. I had always intended to make up for that with this post, talking about the shows I ended up watching in the following season, but then the end of year happened and I had to write a bunch of top ten stuff.

Y’know what though, I wouldn’t even say this is too late, I’m still weeks away from writing Winter 3 episode rule posts, that means there’s no better time to throw some opinions out there on the internet. I mean, that’s literally what the damned thing seems to be for anyway. So here are my summarised thoughts on the shows I watched from the 2019 Fall/Autumn anime season:
