Happy New Year! I hope you are all well and healthy! 2020 was quite the year that no one was ready for and to keep myself from sounding like a broken record I’ll keep the 2020 talk to a minimum! It was a strange year and the anime industry felt it, with a smaller number of shows airing compare to previous years as well as a drop in quality of some shows but that didn’t stop anime and we were still able to see quite a bit of incredible shows take off! With the new year already upon us I figured it be a good time to do a little top 10 anime list of my favorite shows in 2020!
