Spring 2020 Season Guide (Updating)

Cherry Blossoms at Yoshino, Hokusai, c. 1833

Here we are, at it again. We’re halfway through Winter, so its time to prepare for Spring by taking a gander at what’s headed our way when the weather starts getting warmer.

There are many huge shows returning and quite a few intriguing new ones. It’s gonna be a busy season. Here’s what we’re going to watch:

Seven sequels are locks (*) so far: SAO:A 2, Railgun T Part 2, No Guns Life 2, Kaguya-sama: Love is War 2, Food Wars 5, Fruits Basket 2, Oregairu (SNAFU) 3. These alone will definitely keep us occupied.

That leaves 4-5 empty slots to reach our typical max of 11-12. Which of the eight new shows will we keep? Only time will tell.
