The winter anime season begins in January and continues through March. This year sees a strong showing of anime--it's very reminiscent of the Winter 2018 season. Despite the overwhelming number of choices, we dove into the list of upcoming series and movies to determine the ones that seem to be a must-watch.
In the video above, Jordan Ramée details the eight anime from the Winter 2020 season that we're most looking forward to watching and think you should add to your own queues. Crunchyroll comes out as the heavy hitter this season, streaming five of the eight anime discussed in the video. That said, Amazon Prime Video is continuing its trend of silently dropping incredible-looking anime on its service, and several series and movies that debuted in Japan last year are finally making their way to the US this season.
Though Haikyu: To The Top--the long-awaited fourth season to perhaps the most popular sports anime of all time--is likely to be the crowd favorite this winter, don't sleep on Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken. It's difficult to pin down exactly what about this anime makes it seem like this series is going to be a dark horse, but the anime has already managed to create buzz within both the community and industry--and we really like it too.
Perhaps, just like 2018, this year will see the debut of its top contender for Anime of the Year within the very first month. Of course, it's still way too soon to tell. Regardless, if you watch any anime this season, you might want to make sure it's Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken. And if you have time for more, well we've got seven other recommendations for you.
