OG’s Winter 2020 Anime Picks

It’s that time again where I share my seasonal watchlist. As always the list is subject to change depending on whether I lose interest in any of the shows I’m watching or another show catches my interest. Picks are based on the below anime charts:

  1. Chart 1
  2. Chart 2

MUST WATCH

Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu Cover

Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu (Rough Translation: If my favorite Idol goes to Budokan, I might die). My #1 hype show. It appears to be a potential yuri romance between a young adult hardcore idol fan and her #1 idol who may feel the same way for her. Best part for me is this is a sort of age-gap yuri anime WHERE THE YOUNGER GIRL ISN’T A TODDLER! Halleluyer!

BanG Dream LIVE Poster

BanG Dream 3rd Season. Hopefully S3 won’t have a super long drama arc like O-Tae’s from S2 and Arisa’s tsundere power will be back to full force. Besides those requests I’m ready for more band gays.

22-7 Cast.jpg

22/7. Another idol anime. I’m usually interested in them.

Koisuru Asteroid.jpg

Koisuru Asteroid. Another Girls’ Club anime means another hype anime for OG. This time we have one about stargazing so expect to learn some cool stuff about astronomy.

 

show by rock mashumairesh.jpg

Show By Rock!! Mashumairesh!! On one hand I’m bummed the third season won’t be following Plasmagica due to Cyan X Retoree’s story not getting a proper conclusion. On the other hand the new lead band look adorable and Cyan appeared in the trailer so it’s not like Plasmagica won’t be there. I’m looking forward to more SBR goodness.

Magia Record Cover

Magia Record (TV.) It’s more Meduka Meguca and while I’m not as excited as most for it I won’t deny my desire to check it out. Besides, mobile game players confirmed there’s plenty to work with.

BTW, NO SPOILERS (As always).

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun T

To Aru Kagaku no Railgun T. 3rd season of Railgun and I’m still more excited for the rest of the gang (Uiharu, Saten, Kongo, Misaki, etc) than I am for Mikoto and Kuroko. Entertaining on the battlefield, not so much off of it (for me anyway).

Healin Good PreCure Logo.png

Healin’ Good PreCure. 17th installment of the Pretty Cure franchise. Best believe I’ll be watching it.

There are some shorts about Hulaing Babies, Rebirth and Yuru Camp that I’ll be checking out too. I think Machikado Mazoku has one too.

CURIOSITIES

Itai no wa Iya Poster.png

Itai no wa Iya nanode Bougyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu. I said this at the start of my “Average Abilities” coverage. If you want me to watch an “isekai” anime, have it either star or be centered around a group of girls. Yes, I know this party has a male member but I don’t think he’ll be as annoying or lame as M from Gun Gale Online. I could be wrong but my curiosity is piqued.

Runway de Waratte.jpg

Runway de Waratte. I know it’s a het show but I’m way too intrigued to let it pass me by. I need to know what it’s like. Again no spoilers.

There you have it. Would have added Nekopara but the male avatar was confirmed being part of the cast so I’m just going to wait for sexy screenshots and hopefully a swimsuit episode. May it live up to the hype of fans of the VN series.

    We are pretty much the same. Oshibudo is my number one hype. Yay, age gap yuri. As an idol anime fan, I’m so intrigued by 22/7. I think it’s more like dark idol anime, I don’t know. I just have that feeling. I don’t know anything about it. Runway anime, everyone looks beautiful and the girls are sexy there’s no way I’m gonna pass this one up.

      It’s about a young woman supporting a teenager so much she fell in love with her and maybe it’s reciprocated. That’s why I’m so excited to see how the story unfolds.

      So you think 22/7 will have a similar tone to Wake Up Girls. Would be very interesting if that’s the case.

    Aww, can’t wait for Koisuru Asteroid!

    Many of the others look lovely too. And I adore Uiharu.

    That new visual for 22/7 really makes it look like we will get some nice yuri hopefully similar to restage. I feel like I’ve been waiting forever for more show by rock hopefully cyan will have a way to easily travel worlds now so she can see her gf. From what I’ve heard the shield show doesn’t have any yuri but hopefully they will ramp it up for the anime.

    Koisuru Asteroid is my number one must watch anime. BanG Dream 3rd season and Magia Record come after.. I don’t usually watch idol but I’m interested in Oshibudo.

    hyped for Oshi Budokan and Koisuru Asteroid

    Runway de Waratte – will be a shit show. After she get’s some focus on the first chapters of the manga, the girl only appears approximately ONCE EVERY TEN CHAPTERS, and the focus is on the guy fashion designer instead. Hard pass on this one.

    Here’s my top 3 I’m looking forward to:

    Koisuru Asteroid: I usually enjoy slice of life series like this. Plus I’ve read the manga, and it’s enjoyable.

    3rd season of Show by Rock: I really liked the first two seasons so I’ll probably check this out. It’s too bad Plasmagica won’t be the focus, but I’m willing to see what this new group has to offer.

    Magia Record anime adaptation: The game is really fun so I’ll give this a watch. By the way just FYI: there is a canon lesbian character in the game, but chances are that the most she’ll get is just a quick cameo in the anime.

    22/7 – My first thought was how many characters does this have. Apparently 8, so neither 22 or 7, but a small enough main cast that I don’t lose focus.

    BanG Dream – More is always good.

    My asteroid can’t be this cute? – The general premise sounds pretty good to me.

    Reincarnated as an idol fan – This is the kind of age gap I can get behind.

    Pain is not fun: At first glance, it seems interesting enough.

    Magia Record: I only got far enough in the game to see the weird choice of a self insert character, but I have hopes.

    Yuri Camp shorts: Season 2 when? Shorts will hold me for now.

    Isekai Quartet 2: Isekai Quarteter: Albedo needs to teach Rem the way of the pervy (still). Filo x Melty, please.

    Railgun continues down the alphabet: I need to watch all of this. Maybe in time for U? V?

    OOhhh! I didn’t know about Show By Rock!! Mashumairesh!! and Magia Record 😀
    Anyway, very much excited for Oshi ga Budokan Ittekuretara Shinu too. Koisuru Asteroid is a cute one 😀 And I don’t think Itai no wa Iya nanode Bougyo-Ryoku ni Kyokufuri Shitai to Omoimasu has a male character. If it has, he seems to be too insignificant for me to remember 😛

    Well, I’m pretty much looking forward to these shows as well. And I’d probably put Runway de Waratte on my list too since it’s one of your picks, I’m curious about it now 😀

      The new SBR was announced recently so I understand you not noticing until now.

      We’ll see how the shield girl isekai goes.

      Let’s enjoy these together and whatever other shows you plan on checking out for yourself.

    I am definitely covering Bang Dream 3, Magia Record and Koisuru Astroid next season. I won’t be doing more than that since I will be working soon and I won’t have as much free time, but there will be some titles I will watch, but not cover until the end. But yes, hopefully next year will be better in terms of anime.

    Bofuri: Itai no Iya has been very good so far.

    Also Mashumairesh is entertaining. 🙂
