8-BNA: Brand new animal

Just like the previous anime, this anime’s strength is also its action, all the while portraying a darker side of things.

The anime sheds light on a graver side of things which makes it a tad bit more interesting to watch.

Money is one thing that appeals to the most amount of people.
Which is exactly what makes this anime such a fun watch.
There is a detective who has a stupid, almost unreal, amount of cash just lying around, and it’s always interesting to see how he can solve problems and mysteries with just some handsome amount of cash.
Genre: Mystery, Police, Psychological, Sci-Fi
If we are talking about an unusual plot, this anime solos.
There is a system which allows a person to enter a place of deep complexity and multiplex, this place is the human subconsciousness. And a detective agency of the highest order, uses this system to seek out wanted serial killers.
I’d say, this anime always leaves you with just enough anticipation that you can’t help but watch the next episode, and then the next episode…

Isekai genre has been rising in popularity for almost a decade, and it’s about time that we start to see some major diversity in this genre.

4-Tower of god

2020 was the year when Webtoon anime adaptions also became a thing.
And the first webtoon to get a proper tv anime adaption is Tower of god.
The story follows a bunch of chosen people who gather around to climb to the top of a tower, but what’s interesting is that the tower is basically another world in and of itself. Some people can spend their whole life and still never reach the top.
The art style is colorful enough and the characters give you the shounen anime feel. If you like anime with some wonderful world-building, this is worth giving a shot.
Genre: Slice of Life, Psychological, Drama, Shounen
When the topic is about choosing which anime to watch, it’s impossible to not have some degree of prejudice about the anime that certain anime that you are about to watch.
However, in this case, the prejudice falls short… the anime is not what you expect it to be.
It’s a drama type story which addresses a wide range of sensitive topics all the while maintaining a casual tune. And it’s brilliant.
If you are into something that is out of the norm, this one may be your cup of tea.
Genre: Action, Comedy, Horror, Magic, Fantasy, Seinen
Some anime make it absolutely clear that they are not for kids.
This anime falls into that category.
The story begins in a dark, unconventional district, where the concept of morality is almost non-existent. There is the idea of ‘survival of the fittest’ as well as some really horrific elements in this anime.
Yet it has just enough comedic relief to balance things up.
Indeed, this anime is a job well done.
Genre: Action, Adventure, Mystery, Comedy, Psychological
This anime is about a group of con artists who go around scamming people, such as underground mafia bosses, as well as some other big shots.
And it’s great!
Be that as it may, the anime’s main narrative isn’t just scamming people, it’s more like, trying to get out of unfamiliar situations while making the best of it all.
The characters are genuinely likable, and both the art style as well as the animation is glorious.
If you haven’t watched this one yet, you are missing out.
There you go guys, these were some of the best anime of 2020.
I hope you found an anime or two that you haven’t watched yet.
