if you're not watching haikyuu!! at this point, you're doing yourself a disservice.

Overflow looks.....mmmm, dirty. So, yea, I'm in.

Dec 24, 2019 7:37 PM by OldOtaku0227

Looking Forward to
ID:Invaded
dorohedoro (will decide if animation is good)
ishuzoku reviewers (will watch for research) xD
plunderer (so far looks ok)

Dec 21, 2019 2:01 PM by MaOtwE

a season full of anime about idols, but no isekai, we already know which is the real over saturated anime

Dec 20, 2019 12:12 AM by Fede_5000

hype for Eizouken and MAPPA's Dorohedoro adaptation! will def keep eye on Pet, Id, Orphen and maybe case file show by shuka.

Wished Somali was adapted by a better studio oh well :/

Dec 18, 2019 12:49 PM by SkyDrop

I'm mostly excited about the manga adaptations especially Haikyuu. Darwin's Game seems like a hit or miss though.

Oh and it's so good to see Railgun back again! Also, it seems we're getting a lot more idol anime next year. Btw, I'm certain that 5-toubun no Hanayome 2nd Season won't be airing for Winter 2020 or even Spring 2020 with a recent news that an event will happen in May next year. My guess will be Summer.

Obligatory 'what a time to be alive' comment.

Dec 18, 2019 5:00 AM by Detective1412

The only anime I care is Dorohedoro and Somali

Dec 17, 2019 6:38 PM by InfernoPhoeniz12

Dorohedoro, nothing else appeals to me.
I’m glad of that statement, so don’t try to change my mind.

Dec 17, 2019 5:01 PM by SebCyrSC2000

Looks like another shitty season. A bunch of sequels I don't care about. Some manga I really love are getting botched with shite CG adaptations that I won't be watching. Some other manga that I like are also getting really low effort shitty looking adaptations that I won't be watching.

Outside of that there are a few shows that I will try to watch, they have "potential", if you can call it that. But who knows if they'll actually deliver. Somali to Mori no Kamisama, Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun, Ishuzoku Reviewers, Koisuru Asteroid, Eizouken ni wa Te wo Dasu na!. Oh and Heya Camp.

It's looking like a really weak start for 2020.

Dec 17, 2019 3:36 PM by alpha_shadow

Heya Camp -> Yuru Camp is on!
Pet -> Geno Studio do it again!
Eizouken ni wa Te o Dasu na! -> Masaaki Yuasa new show!
Breakers -> Interesting concept.

But, i watch every show in the season, so.. Nevermind.

Dec 17, 2019 12:28 PM by NanbaJeanOtus

The Anime that I'm going to be watching in order of how hyped I am:
1.Haikyuu!!: To the Top
2.Somali to Mori no Kamisama
3.Dorohedoro.
4.Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun
5.Natsunagu!
6.Pet
7.Majutsushi Orphen Hagure Tabi
8.Boku no Tonari ni Ankoku Hakaishin ga Imasu.
9.ID:Invaded
10.Housekishou Richard-shi no Nazo Kantei
11.A3! Season Spring & Summer
12.Oda Cinnamon Nobunaga
13.Kuutei Dragons
14.Darwin's Game
15.number24
16.Kyokou Suiri

So 16 anime. 1 sequel and 15 new shows.
There's 4 anime continuing from Fall that I'm also watching Boruto, Pokemon, MHA 4th season and Chihyafuru 3rd season.

Dec 17, 2019 10:31 AM by janiwolf

5 toubun, Heya Camp, Darwin's Game, Dorehodero, Nekopara and Somali for me. Winter is going to be pretty chill

Dec 17, 2019 9:41 AM by Xhamos

Dorohedoro and Kuutei Dragons but they both have better atmospheres as manga.

Nothing else caught my attention to be quite honest.

any news for tsugumomo?

Dec 17, 2019 7:53 AM by roshanzzz

I picked up 18 this season, which is rather low for me. I really had to scrap the bottom of the barrel as well, which does not show promise for 2020. I typically pick up 30-35 shows a season and finish out 25-28 of them. If the trend remains the same I am looking at 13-15 to finish out the season. I mean, at least I will get caught up on my "To Watch List" a little bit. I can probably clear 2 extra seasons a week with this much extra time, especially since Mandatory OT goes away in January. I hope the rest of 2020 turns out promising.

Dec 17, 2019 7:45 AM by ReialsLostSanity

I will only watch series Dorohedoro :D

Dec 17, 2019 6:42 AM by Stephen_King

Please delete 5-toubun no Hanayome 2nd Season from the list. 2nd season is not going to be aired via Winter 2020. The only information about it airing on Winter 2020 is the rebroadcast of first season via BSN Niigata.
