Fall Anime 2020 Notes

This is simply narrowed down to all the available manga and light novels in English. The order is new anime, films, OVAs, and sequels/continuing shows from the summer, with Gal & Dino resuming this season. Aside from most of the air dates being grabbed from official sites, presume some of them (especially those that aren’t simulcast yet) are the JP air dates.Aside from the debuts, the manga/light novel covers likely don’t correspond to the current season/OVA.This will be updated (probably not immediately) to include any additional official simulcast pickups, air times, and links.For anything else regarding this list, from corrections to additions, feel free to comment below or shoot an email to contact at theoasg dot com.
