Fall 2020 Anime
« on: September 21, 2020, 10:38:57 AM »

Another season of anime, let's watch some new shows. This is the thread to talk about all things Fall 2020 anime.

I was saved from my 2 year loss of interest in viewing anime by Gundam and watching through classic shows but now I have been in watching part way and going to something else Hell. I think watching airing shows is what I want to do now. I must say nothing is exciting for me this season. But here are some I'll check out, and I'm sure I'll try more as well. 

Love Live! Nijigasaki High School Idol Club
The third generation of Love Live, a new show with new characters. I loved the original and I'm super attached to the Sunshine characters so this will be harder to accept a new cast. What I think the show needs to do is separate itself and be it's own thing. Love Live Sunshine was very similar to the original since it was about a group of characters inspired by the original school idol group Muse. The show was fairly mediocre unfortunately, it was just the characters like Yoshiko, Dia, Kanan and Riko that I liked. For this new generation I'm not crazy about the designs, I don't think they're as good as Muse and Aqours, but we'll see how this show is. I'll give it a chance and view it as it's own thing. It's worth noting the original & Sunshine had the same logo & "School Idol Project" subtitle and this one doesn't.

Iwa Kakeru!: Sport Climbing Girls
A gamer becomes a rock climber and goes against exaggerated opponents. Featuring some of the most fit anime girls ever seen. I'm getting a ping on my Keijo radar as this looks like a shameless sports series with some over the top elements that takes it's world seriously despite being ridiculous. I don't expect it to be nearly as good as Keijo or even the same but it is reminding me of that. Let's see how it is.

Higurashi no Naku Koro ni
A new adaptation of Higurashi. The 2006 anime is very well known so there's no surprise what it's about, but I haven't watched the original past the first episode. I'll give the new version a chance just because it's airing. I expect low production values and ugly art. Which honestly I find the artstyle of Higurashi to be poor anyway. The characters are very...glossy. We'll see how this turns out.

Adachi to Shimamura
This show could be really boring or a pleasant watch. It looks cute and colourful. I'm sure it will bring nice Slice of Life elements. Oh ya and Yuri. We'll see how it is. Expectations are low so it could be a pleasant surprise.
