Hey all this week I’m back with a look at what I’m most looking forward to for this season of Anime. It’s my Most Anticipated Winter 2020 Anime!
Bofuri: The title for this series is ridiculously long, but I read the first volume of the original Light Novel and found it to be utterly freaking hilarious. This is probably what I’m looking forward to the most, even if it seems like it’ll have competition for the VRMMO genre.
Infinite Dendogram: The said competition, I have yet to read the original Light Novels, so I’ll probably give this an episode to impress me. Then I’ll probably read the novels when I get the chance, in like six months.
Breakers: This is a Sports series, which isn’t usually my thing, however this series covers Para-athletes, those athletes who have a disability. So I’m definitely going to give this a watch
Plunderer: I’m not usually one for the heavy fan service sort of shows, but the premise behind this one is interesting so I’ll be giving it a chance.
Fate/Grand Order Bablyonia: This continues the series that started in the previous season, but I’m secretly hoping that the rumors I’ve heard that they’ll be doing the “missing” episodes on the Temple of Time will be true. For those who are wondering what I mean by “Missing” is the fact that the series is only going to run for 21 episodes, which is 3 less than the typical 24 for a 2-cour series. However given how intertwined the stories of these two particular story arcs are in the Grand Order storyline people have been saying that it’s possible that those three will be used to wrap up the story of the first act of Grand Order. Given how absolutely epic the Temple of Time story is I’m really hoping to see it animated.
This week for Sensate Saturday I’m Quick Reviewing a series I read just the other day. It’s Plunderer by Minazuki Suu!
Plot Synopsis: It’s the year 305 of the Alcian calendar, and the world is currently controlled by “numbers.” Every human born is branded with a “Count.” This Count can be anything; the amount of kilometers walked, or the amount of people who have said your food is tasty. If your Count drops to 0, you will be sent into the Abyss. After Hina’s mother’s Count dropped to 0, her last request was for Hina to look for the Legendary Red Baron.
Plot: This first chapter really got my attention, with such an interesting plot hook and the fact that it’s got pretty much every highly emotional genre type, from romance to tragedy in the genre tags online told me that I’m in for an emotional roller coaster. So I’m definitely going to continue reading this series, when I get some time.
Characters: Hina is pretty naive, but living cut off from the world with only your mother will do that to anyone, so I don’t have anything against her. She’s a hell of a lot more intelligent than most female leads I’ve read, which is a good thing. This Richto character seems to be a real creeper though, though him getting the shit beat out of him by his boss Nana was hilarious.
Art: This has wonderful artwork, with plenty of background and character detail. I’d say it’s even good enough to be in a Shueisha publication.
Overall: I’ll be continuing to read this interesting series, so I’m definitely recommending giving it a shot.
