KiritoNarukami’s Top 10 Anime of 2020!!

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!

Kyuukyoku Shinka shita Full Dive RPG ga Genjitsu yori mo Kusoge Dattara (First Impression)

“In an unexpected turn of events, dull high school student Hiro Yuuki obtains the full dive role-playing game Kiwame Quest. Created by the best of technology, the game claims to take “reality to its extremes,” from stunning graphics, NPCs’ behavior, to the scent of vegetation, and even the sensation of wind brushing against the skin—everything was the result of an ultimate workmanship. Except, the game is a little too realistic and messy to clear. Kiwame Quest features over ten quadrillion flags and reflects the players’ real-life physical abilities in the game. Being hit in the game also hurts in real life and slash wounds take days to heal. The only reward here is the sense of accomplishment. Conquer the most stressful game in history that can’t be played casually!”
