5 Best Anime of 2020 That I Should Have Watch Sooner

I’ve been following these anime, but got sidetracked while I was waiting for them to finish airing so I could binge watch them. So please don’t hate me, it wasn’t intentional hahaha.

There’s a lot of amazing anime that aired last year, but these 5 are my most anticipated. Aside from Jujutsu Kaisen and Yashahime, I’ve been following the other 3 since their very first season.

So without further delay, let me present to you my list. Their order don’t vary:

1. Haikyuu!!: To the Top 2nd Season

Genre: Sports, Shounen
Sypnosis:

Once called a fallen powerhouse and known as “Flightless Crows,” Karasuno High School has finally taken flight at nationals. With a comprehensive performance against Tsubakihara Academy in their first match, the team is now facing its toughest opponent yet: the runners-up of the last Spring Tournament, Inarizaki High School. Furthermore, dealing with the formidable twin Miya brothers only makes things more difficult for Karasuno.

As soon as the match begins, Karasuno is overwhelmed by all the noise and jeers from the supporters of Inarizaki High but rekindles its strength thanks to its own loyal fans. Karasuno also gains some momentum by utilizing an attack centered on Shouyou Hinata, but the eccentric play of Atsumu and Osamu Miya delivers an unexpected blow that leaves their opponent astounded.

Things are bound to get intense as the match progresses between these two teams. Will Karasuno be able to defeat Inarizaki High and overcome the hurdles that threaten its pursuit to the top?

This series is one of fall 2019 anime, but it finished airing in the first quarter of 2020 so I am adding this one hehehe.

***

Some of you might be wondering why the final season of Attack on Titan wasn’t on the list. I actually started watching it last July, but had to stop after watching 2-3 episodes because it felt that I wasn’t fully myself during that month. But I am already planning on watching it again after posting this article, hehehe.

I can’t wait to finally watch and enjoy these anime (now with the right mind thankfully!) after 2 months of not watching any. Can’t believe I survived that long, lol. I am aiming to watch them all before 2021 ends, because dang! There’s a lot of promising anime this 2021 that also need my attention, hahaha.

So which of these anime do you think I should start first? Hehehe.
