There’s more than a bunch of anime upcoming in summer 2020. And that’s all in spite of the #coronavirus delaying anime every other week.
Some anime are big name shows with new seasons, and others are brand new.
I’ll focus on anime shows that have:
- Guaranteed dates
- And won’t be delayed
As far as what the publishers and studios have said.
Upcoming Anime Summer 2020:
1. Fire Force Season 2
Made by David Productions studio. Fire Force was one of the killers of 2019 alongside Demon Slayer.
Now it’s back with a 2nd season coming on July 4th 2020.
2. Oregairu Season 3
Oregairu has been a favorite slice of life/school show for years. With its discreet psychological elements and meaningful characters.
Now it’s finally getting a 3rd season. Airing July 10th 2020.
3. The God Of High School
The God Of High School, adapted by Crunchyroll is coming on July 6th 2020 (my birthday).
It’s a big anime that came from a popular webtoons project, just like Tower Of God.
4. No Guns Life Season 2
No Guns Life, an anime done by Madhouse Studios is back for more. S1 aired in 2019 like Fire Force.
This anime was set for April 2020 but got delayed because of the coronavirus.
There’s no official air date for July 2020 yet.
5. Uzaki Chan Wants To Hang Out
Uzaki Chan Wants To Hang Out is being adapted from a manga.
The main character: Uzaki Chan caused a lot of controversy in late 2019 and early 2020.
After the storm passed they decided to adapt it into an anime and here we are.
Official air date is July 10th 2020.
6. Peter Grill To Kenja No Jikan
Peter Grill is the name of the anime and the main character in this harem.
Female characters want his “seed” and that’s where the anime’s narrative starts from.
It’ll air on July 11th 2020.
Deca-Dance is an action sci-fi/adventure series I love the look of. It’s being made by NUT (seriously).
This curious looking anime airs on July 8th 2020. And should bring something different to anime’s 2020 line up.
8. Dokyuu Hentai HxEros
Dokyuu Hentai HxEros is being made by Project No.9. And is a comedy/ecchi show based in school.
This anime is set to air on July 4th 2020.
Gibiate is a mix of horror, martial arts and samurai. I can only wonder how that will turn out once it airs.
The anime airs July 15th 2020.
10. Monster Girl Doctor
Monster Girl Doctor is another version of Monster Musume, if you’re familiar with that.
The studio behind it is Arvo Animation, with a release date of July 12th 2020.
Umayon is a spin off anime of Pretty Derby (the slice of life horse girl series from 2018).
This show will air July 7th 2020.
12. SAO Alicization: War Of The Underworld Season 2
With the last episode ending the way it did, and SAO’s obvious fanbase, season 2 of “war of the underworld” takes place on July 12th 2020.
With the way Alicization has been dominating, we can only expect more juice to get squeezed out of this one.
13. Re:Zero Season 2
Re:Zero season 2 is finally on its way after a couple of years without a follow-up.
The anime is done by White Fox Studios (Steins Gate, Akame Ga Kill).
The air date is July 8th 2020, and was originally meant for April but got delayed thanks to corona.

The studio is TMS Entertainment. And will air July 11th 2020.
15. The Misfit of Demon King Academy
The Misfit of Demon King Academy is being done by Silver Link Studios (Kokoro Connect, Non Non Biyori).
This fantasy/school anime will air on July 4th 2020.
