What's the most memorable and great anime you watched this year, for me these ones are pretty good.
>Dragon Quest remake
This is mostly nostalgia talking but I love this shit, I know it's nothing special it's just your standard shonen anime but the fight scenes are enjoyable and watching this show that I used to watch alot as a kid remade in a faithful way is pretty awsome.
>Akudama Drive
Now this show is pretty unique, if you love the cyberpunk visuals and that kind of stuff you should watch, it's filled with great action, great visuals, great cast of characters that are enjoyable to watch and an enjoyable story.
I remember watching more shit that came out, but I forgot about them well I did say memorable for a reason.

Good question. There was a lot of enjoyable anime in 2020 but I'm having a hard time finding one that really stood out.
Was Magia Record in 2020 or was it still 2019? Not that it really deserves being called anime of the year but it was definitely memorable. It kind of stopped making sense in Rebellion and I still consider Madoka to be story that was already finished long ago but that still doesn't make new entries in the series less intriguing.

>Dragon Quest remake
Not huge on shounen but I like this one, probably because it's Dragon Quest. And again, good visuals. It's not even that special but there's something about it that just looks amazing.
>Akudama Drive
I have it all downloaded for a while now but didn't start watching yet. I'll probably like it.
>anime of the year
This is retarded, why do we need this when there is rarely ever one anime that stands on top of the others each year?

Not OP but I guess then the better question is, which anime did you enjoy in 2020 and which ones did suck?
Replies: >>121
So far I enjoyed Majo no tabitai, Hanyou No Yashahime, Jujutsu Kaisen, but what I've been mostly watching are old animes I never got to finish or went to rewatch again. But again my point still stands, because none of these animes I've listed are shows I would say are anime of the year for 2020.
It doesn't have to be something great or anything like that just something memorable.
Just like (you) I don't follow sesonal anime that much lately I'm more intresseted in the older stuff.
When I see threads like this I really think I should start writing down waht I've watched like all the other autists on the internet instead of just writing down what I'm watching right now and the current episode number.
But from what I can remember:
>Digimon Adventure reboot
Maybe the most important one, but that may be due to a fact that it went on for the whole year. It's somewhere around episode 30 now and while I don't like it as much as the original it's a good show for the most part. The original had much more prolific villains. The original wasn't very high budget, the reboot isn't either. And obviously it's much better than the bullshit they did with Tri.
>No Guns Life
It's good but for some reason I forgot about it and only ever watched half of it
>Kamisama Ni Natta Hi
Started out great but had more and more problems as it unfolded. In the end, the beginning was too drawn out for the ending to have enough time to evolve. Maeda tried to cram too much shit into it, the slapstick slice of life elements, Hackerfag and the intentionally heartbreaking end. It doesn't know what kind of anime it wants to be, the ending feels rushed but there's still somehow time for the MC to waste a whole episode with being being dumb.
>Azur Lane and Assault Lily
Cute girls, yuribait and explosions. Nothing special but enjoyable. There are two billion series like that every season and I always make sure to watch one of them. Strike Witches would probably fit into that category as well but I didn't watch it. Seen the first episode halfway into the season and it felt too redundant with AL.
>Hatena Illusion
Lost interest at episode 4
>Machikado Mazoku
Didn't watch yet but I'm definitely going to
As cute as it is stupid. The kind of anime that's fun to watch after a exhausting day at work.

It's alright

>Munou na Nana
I'm a sucker for autistic protagonists and evil cute girls so this really hit the spot despite the asspulling that happened later. S2 never ever.
>Akudama Drive
/animu/ hated this because MC wasn't a waifu. Still fun as fuck. Between this, loli Odin and Nana Fall 2020 was the season of redpills.
>Jibaku Shounen Hanako-kun
This one is memorable just for turning QUALITY into an art form. Every scene has the bare minimum animation to get the point across and somehow the final product doesn't look like shit. It helps that the series is light on action so voice acting and plot can carry it. Hanako-kun's VA is the perfect blend of smug and creepy
>No Guns Life
Goofy cyberpunk action, somehow managed to avoid taking itself too seriously for most of the run. Also I want to massage Mary's asscheeks.
>Senryoku no Sigfrida
Like Strike Witches but better in every way because it has a plot, characters, and reasonably high quality animation.
>Ishuzoku Reviewers
Almost forgot this was a 2020 anime. Deserves an honorable mention just for the volume of asshurt it caused. If you liked this check out World of Moral Reversal by the same artist.
And the true #1AOTY
It's telling of the absolute state of the industry that a 25 minute plush commercial for little girls is the best thing out there. Characters get development, the antagonists are sympathetic, it breaks from formula just enough to avoid getting stale and there's the rumblings of an actual plot hiding in the background. Highly recommended.
>Started out great but had more and more problems as it unfolded
It's from the director of Clannad, why would you expect anything other than suffering and despair?

You mean because they weren't lewd?
And I think you must have a higher dopamine receptor count than me if you think it was fun "as fuck"
>>113 (OP) 
I didn't sadly watch anything last year.
But god the seasonal anime was fucking trash, even the stuff that I would enjoy were trash I hate how butchered the artstyle of monstergirl doctorALSO WHY THE FUCK DID THEY CHANGE THE DESIGN OF THE CUTE LIZARDGIRL INTO A FUCK SCALIE, I WILL KILL THE FAG WHO THOUGHT OF THAT!but I liked the time when some /monster/fags btfo'd that one smugtr/a/nny talking about how much "good" was (((ishuzoku revievers)))

I've been watching Dorohedoro. So far I like it. Plus the female protag is hot
Is a fucking shame the show uses CGI instead of 2D animation. There are 2D segments every once in a while but it's not the norm.

Don't know if Scissor Seven counts but I liked it as well.

I read the mange not to long ago and it was fantastic. It was the description of the mange that interested me and I'm glad I did. I watched the series too and it was alright as well.
