As I mentioned in a previous post I’ve been really into anime lately. A new anime season is about to start, and with it comes a lot of new anime as well as continuations of older ones. The spring 2020 season typically begins in April and lasts for a few months. Today I;ll be sharing what shows I plan on watching this spring.
All of these synopses are from MyAnimeList, and you by clicking on the poster you will be directed to that anime’s page.
Fugou Keiji: Balance Unlimited:
Daisuke Kanbe, a detective with extraordinary assets, is assigned to the Modern Crime Prevention Headquarters, where only those who have caused problems for the Metropolitan Police Department are sent. There, Daisuke is partnered with Haru Katou. Haru is repulsed by Daisuke’s material ways, believing that money isn’t everything. Challenging mysteries unfold in front of the two detectives, and they must work together to solve them.
I love mystery animes and this one looks like it could be really cool. The characters look very different from each other and I can’t wait to see how they interact. One of the detectives is driven by justice and the other is driven by money. I’m really interested in the rich guy in particular. I’m highly anticipating this one and hope it lives up to my expectations.
Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of the Underworld Season 2
There is no synopsis for this on MyAnimeList, but I wouldn’t have included one because it would include spoilers. This is techincally the fifth season of Sword Art Online. I did a review of the series as a whole in a post wrote earlier in the year which you can find here.
Fruits Basket: Season 2
It’s been almost a year since Tooru started living at Shigure’s house! Though she now has a deeper relationship with each of the Soumas, not just Yuki and Kyou, she is concerned about their sinister curse’s true nature. The right path to choose, predetermined destiny… what emotions will arise in Yuki, Kyou and Tohru in the face of the Eternal Banquet? What will be their resolve?
This is the second season in the famed Fruits Basket series. This one rose in popularity last year and it has been announced that the entire manga will be adapted so no need to worry about unresolved cliffhangers! I did a mini review on the first season which you can check out here if you want.
The first season is very sweet, but I’ve heard that the second season is more emotional than the first. Based on the trailer we get to see more of the mysterious curse that surrounds the Soma family. I’m really excited to watch this and can’t wait till it airs!
My Next Life as a Villainess: All Routes Lead to Doom!
Eight-year-old Katarina Claes is the only daughter of a duke, living her life peacefully and without incident until she hits her head on a rock… and then remembers that she is not actually the duke’s daughter. She used to be an otaku who died on her way to school after spending the previous night playing Fortune Lover, her favorite otome game. After noticing that her current surroundings seem oddly familiar, she is shocked to discover that she has been reincarnated into the world of Fortune Lover as the villainess.
The villainess in the game usually winds up dead or exiled, so Katarina decides to use her knowledge of the game and its routes to avoid any bad situations. But is it even possible for the villainess to reach a good ending?
This anime takes a very common isekai (a person from Earth is transported into a fantasy universe) trope and flips it on his head to make something that could be very unique in the genre. First of all, we get to follow a villainess rather than a hero or heroine. It also differs in the fact that it features a female who is an expert at playing video games. Most shows in the genre have main characters who are male, so it’s nice to see a refreshing change. This has a lot of potential and I can’t wait to see how it goes!
Do you watch a lot of anime? If so, feel free to recommend me some in the comments below as I’m always looking for new anime, and even more so now that I have a lot of free time on my hands. Also, if you plan on watching any of these let me know in the comments your thoughts based on the trailers because I would love to talk about them!
