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.

In the world of Plunderer, everyone has a number. Sometimes, that number refers to how many compliments a person has recieved, or how far they've walked, but sometimes it's a lot more sinister. One thing's for sure, when the number hits zero, disaster strikes. In this world, Hina is sent on a mission by her mother to find the Red Baron, whose count is dangerously close to that final number.
