The 10 anime that I absolutely had to see in 2020

Source: Jujutsu Kaisen via Crunchyroll

2020 was a painful year for everyone because of the coronavirus, including the world of animation which was obviously affected. But that did not prevent the studios from delivering a string of excellent animated. Here is what to remember from the past year.

Great Pretender

Since he gained notoriety, Wit Studio has abandoned The attack of the Titans to better focus on original productions. Great Pretender is the 2020 master stroke, from which we had already sang praise. In the meantime, the last arc in the series was broadcast on Netflix and confirmed all the good that one could think so far.

If you like the animated jazzy and colorful, the stories of scams punctuated by incredible twists and turns and especially the scripts neat with the small onions, Great Pretender should already be launched on your TV. Otherwise too bad for you, you will miss the best original series of the year.

The series is available on Netflix.

Dorohedoro

The year 2020 was clearly that of the Mappa studio with no less than eight productions including the excellent adaptation of the manga of Q Hayashida (available in France at Sun). Yet Dorohedoro was not the simplest work to transpose with this post-apocalyptic universe shared between two distinct dimensions, where Caiman, an amnesiac human with reptile head, tries to find memory by tracking the mages.

Before resuming the reins of The attack of the Titans, Yuichiro Hayashi had delivered this ultra -violent series, unique, with his world mixing cyberpunk and fantasy. Without forgetting this fascination for masks that makes Dorohedoro A very anchored series in its time. The animated adapts only the first 7 volumes (out of 23), we cross our fingers so that the rest is adapted one day. But given the studio’s schedule, it’s badly engaged ..

The series is available on Netflix.

My Hero Academia (season 4 + heroes rising)

Started in 2019 and finished last spring, the fourth season of the Hit de Bones once again deserves its place in this Top despite a last weak arc. Covering volumes 14 to 21 (out of 28 to date), our heroes this time face the powerful overhaul, chief of a yakuzas gang capable of disassembling and rejoining matter. This villain is one of the great successes of a season which has a panel of incredible episodes, animated in particular by the very good Yutaka Nakamura. As such, the latest episode is a real visual fireworks highlighting the impressive capacities of Endeavor for the first time.

Other news Mha of the year: the film Heroes rising, Released in a few rooms last August between two confinements. If the first opus Two Heroes lacked punch, this is not the case with this one with no less than an hour full of homeric fighting. Beware of epileptics, we had not seen this on the big screen from Dragon Ball Super: Broly.

The series and the film are available on DNA (and next March in Blu-ray at Kazé).

Fire Force (season 2)

We had already quoted the series of David Production last year, as this adaptation of the eponymous manga of Atsushi Ohkubo was convincing. Rebelote for this season 2 which keeps the same qualities, but stands out from its initial intrigue (find Shô, Shinra’s little brother) to prefer to further develop his universe and his characters. We learn in particular that men in white are looking for pillars, holders of Adora Burst, of which Shinra is part.

Built in several short arcs, Fire Force advance to the rhythm of a rocket with already 20 volumes adapted in just 50 episodes. The season gives pride of place to secondary characters like the improbable duo Joker and Benimaru or Juggernaut, who offers us a memorable fight and of surprising violence. Without forgetting the escapades of Arthur, authentic parody of the traditional rival of the hero of Shônen, whose gags hit the bull’s eye to each of his appearances.

The series is available on DNA and Wakanim (season 1 will be released in Blu-ray in March at Kana).

Haikyu!! To the top

This is a rule, each year you have to see a sports series, if only to motivate yourself to do it yourself. 2020 marked the return of volleyball players Haikyu!! After four years of absence. This season 4 is still produced by production i.G (Run with the window), but was marked by its change of director and especially by the health crisis (second repulsive part, episodes of unequal quality).

However, Haikyu!! remains the best animated series of the genre. By its realization beyond the usual standards but also by its moments of unequaled intensity. As such, the end of the match against Inarizaki was literally breathtaking. The manga of Haruichi Furudate ended this year in Japan with his 45th volume. So see you soon for the last season ..

The series is available on Wakanim.

Made in Abyss: the dawn of the soul of the depths

Another suite, but this time in the form of a feature film. Made in Abyss was one of the most beautiful surprises in 2017 with this story mixing exotic adventures and pure horror. The rate of publication of manga chapters being slower than usual (one volume per year), it took three years to see the rest. But this wait was worth it.

Rico, leg and nanachi arrive at the fifth level in their quest for the abyss. They meet Prushka, Bondold’s daughter … The villain who traumatized many of us at the end of the first season. The film brilliantly concludes the arc started at the end of the series with the confrontation against Bondold, tremendously interpreted by Toshiyuki Morikawa (the famous voice of Sephiroth of Sephiroth FF7)).

The film is available on Wakanim.

Akudama Drive

Another original series in this top but that we did not necessarily expect. Especially with Studio Pierrot behind (Boruto, Black Clover)). The genus Cyberpunk returns to fashion, he who was so exploited in Japanese animation in the past. Created by Kazutaka Kodaka, creator of the video game Danganronpa, The story follows a young girl on board with famous criminals in a mission to steal a precious merchandise.

Constantly amazing in its course and with ambitious action sequences, Akudama Drive is above all a pure product of 2020. Revolutionary and anti -system discourse surprises by its audacity. The series is intended to be an authentic tribute to the absolute masterpiece of the genre, Akira, from which it borrows a lot. The last episode is for this reason a piece of anthology alone. There is only to wait for a Blu-ray version to rediscover this little gem without its awful and annoying censorship.

The series is available on Wakanim.

Jujutsu Kaisen

If 2019 was the year of Demon Slayer, 2020 was that of Jujutsu Kaisen, New phenomenon of the Shônen Jump. In addition to its French launch at Ki-oon at the start of the year, the anime is to date the biggest success of the Crunchyroll platform. So we cheat a little because only half of the season has been broadcast to date. Nevertheless given the quality of the episodes broadcast until then, we cannot imagine missing the second part.

Made by the talented Sunghoo Park (The God of High School)), Jujutsu Kaisen tells the story of Yuji Itadori, a high school student who, after having swallowed one of the fingers of a powerful demon, will use his new powers to fight the plagues. From its first episode, the Mappa series shows the teeth, with the firm intention of competing with the tenors of the genre. To start with Demon Slayer whose horrifying aspect and the animation sequences completely crazy.

The series is available on Crunchyroll.

Tower of God

Thanks to the Crunchyroll platform, webtoons (Korean BDS published online) now invade Japanese animation. It will therefore be necessary to count on them for the future. Indeed, we will have had three titles in 2020 including Tower of God, sort of shônen under influence Hunter x Hunter. The story is centered on the young Bam who will participate in tests in a huge tower to find his friend Rachel.

Despite the impression of having attended a long introduction (only 13 episodes), Tower of God has seduced by its visual style, the mystery linked to this famous tower and its surprising final revelation. Difficult not to think of the Hunter exam during this season, but the series stands out over the episodes of its main inspiration to find its own personality in the end in the end. Strongly the rest !

The series is available on Crunchyroll and DNA.

Golden Kamui (season 3)

Satoru Noda’s work is surely one of the best current manga (available in France at Ki-oon). Despite a chaotic start, the animated adaptation of 2018 by Geno Studio (Genocidal organ) was a great success. This is still the case for this new season that sees our two main separate heroes. Left for dead, Sugimoto goes to pursuit of Ashirpa, which left north in search of an index on his father ..

Adapting volumes 15 to 19 (currently 24), this third season follows as a gigantic chase and takes us to Sakhalin, an island in the extreme east of Russia. Each episode is enjoyed as a good wine in front of so much generosity. The adventures of our heroes are punctuated both by hilarious gags, as well as poignant dramas. Sometimes the transition is naturally done within the same episode. Really shiny.

The series is available on Crunchyroll.

We could also have quoted in this top: Violet Evergarden: Eternity and the doll of automatic memories (Netflix and Blu-ray available at Eurozoom), Fate/Grand Order Absolute Demonic Front: Babylonia (Wakanim), Sword Art Online: Alicization – War of Underworld (Wakanim), Appear! (Wakanim), Interspects Reviewers (Wakanim), The God of High School (Crunchyroll), Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! (DNA & Crunchyroll) and Japan Sinks: 2020 (Netflix).

And for 2021 ?

Of course the year will be that of the “final season” of The attack of the Titans, which has already started since early December (and what a start -up !)).

It will be marked by many other suites: The Promised Neverland, Me, when I reincarnate in slime, DR. Stone, Immune brigades, Log Horizon, The Seven Deadly Sins, Re: Zero, My Hero Academia, Kingdom, B: The Beginning, the Rising of the Shield Hero and especially the movies Violet Evergarden And Demon Slayer – The Infinite Train, new bigger cinematographic success of all time in Japan.

Demon Slayer -Kimetsu no yaiba- The film: The train of infinity
