OG’s Summer 2020 Anime Picks

(Update: Ochikobore Fruit Tart was originally a pick but it got postponed to Fall too)

Because of the madness going on across the globe, that it’s best to not go over here, many Summer anime, specifically ones I’d been eagerly anticipating, were pushed back to Fall. Some even got postponed to Winter 2021 like Vlad Love. The best I can do is, like in the Spring season, use my free time to catch up on shows on my backlog and pick up more Western shows. That’s how I finished watching the excellent She-Ra and the Princesses of Power, binged Steven Universe and picked up Harley Quinn. Expect posts on SU and HQ soon (The latter once season 2 is done). Right now let’s take a look at the few shows I’ll pick up and possibly cover this Summer. As always the list isn’t definitive so there may be potential additions.

Picks based on these charts:

Houkago Teibou Nisshi

First up we have the long awaited return of the Fishing Girls Show. An unfortunate victim of “you know what” the show got postponed to an unannounced date. Fortunately the wait won’t be long as the show is scheduled to restart its broadcast this July. What that means is unless the West gets Episodes 4 and onward before Japan we’ll have to wait till late July or early August for the show to catch up where we left off.

Now for the new Summer show.

Lapis ReLiGHTs idol project

Lapis Re:LiGHTs. Magical idols. Sounds good.

There is a third anime. It’s an Uma Musume chibi shorts show called UmaYon. That alone tells you if it’s worth your time or not.

That’s it. I’m not devotedly watching Railgun 3 and I don’t know when Healin’ Good PreCure will resume airing so for now these are my Summer picks. That means more time for games and leftover shows which is fine by me. Fall, provided there are no more delays, is super stacked so that’s when the blog will be running wild once again.

    Fishing: Oh no, senpai, we’ve been delayed!
    Ohno-senpai: we’ll be back in the summer.

    Lights: Magic and idols? I’m in.

    Fruit Tart: Now I want a NEET girls doing NEET things anime.

    UmaYon: I had an issue with one character that kept me from getting into the show. Unless a full season 2 gives it quite the twist, I’m done.

    Other Sequels:

    Fire Force: Can Tamaki please use her accident power on one of the girls?

    Muhyo and Roji: Did I mention this one here before? Episode 1 gave us a nice yuri side couple, and later in the series we got a bigger yuri romance. Hoping to see more of that couple this season.

    Freshly packed lunches (because Tohru wouldn’t leave anyone with leftovers):
    Fruits Basket: Actually good het stuff for a change. If Tohru ever changes her mind, there are a few girls who would be interested.

    It’s obvious what my picks are, but hopefully Summer won’t become a barren wasteland. 2020 is just a disastrous year thanks to COVID. Of course, I am not the only one to see a dropoff in engagement in the blogosphere after reading what others had to say. But it’s good to see some spring shows coming back and hopefully no more delays.

    But yes, it seems that Fall is a packed season, but hopefully I can cover that many shows if most of us are still forced to work at home by then.

      Yup. As mentioned it’ll give me more time to devote to my backlog. Hopefully you’ll hang in there good sir. We’ll all be ready for Fall.

        And just like that, Fruit Tart is now delayed. 2020 is a big meme of becoming a massive train wreck of a year. But at least there are at least two shows instead of having hardly anything to watch last season.

    Fruit Tart – have been waiting for this a long time. Looking forward to watching it.

    Houkagou Nisshi – will watch when it resume.

    I haven’t been following Harley Quinn, does it look like they’re gonna go in with Harley x Ivy? I might start watching if so just so I’m not left out of the hype if it happens…

    Not a lot going on for the summer. So many shows pushed back to Fall and beyond. Oh well, we’ll have to make do with what we are getting.

    Looking forward to getting back into anime more when I return from my time away. Been so unmotivated to watch stuff as of late.

    The trailers of Lapis Re:LiGHTs look lovely. It seems like one of those cute, silly, colourful shows with hugs and hand holding and cuddling and probably more. Looking forward to it! ^^
