With the holiday season coming to an end, it's time to get hyped about brand new anime. The Winter 2020 anime season has just begun, and there are plenty of awesome new shows to get excited about. Let's take a look at what's on the Winter 2020 anime release schedule. 

Among the best winter 2020 anime are sequels to hot shows like Haikyuu!! and A Certain Scientific Railgun, and new movies from popular franchises like Fate/stay night and Digimon Adventure. But you don't have to be up to date on these older series to get in on the fun. There are also plenty of brand new shows like Toilet-bound Hanako-kun, Somali and the Forest Spirit, Dorohedoro, and more. 

Which shows are you the most excited about?
