Some shows already premiered.
The most popular series of the last decade did release a few episodes before the season officially kicked off.

Attack on Titan: The Final Season - This is it. The war to end it all. I wonder who survives...
So, this past year saw a consecutive release of adaptations based on Korean comics, "manhwa", which have been growing in popularity globally thanks in part to Webtoon & similar publication sites. Not to be confused with "manhua" as those are Chinese comics, which have had adaptations for quite...
Due to the obvious predicament,
Winter 2020 started off strong with a boat load of variety proceeded by average - below average seasons.
Fall 2020, however, was definitely more noteworthy. It was a season of sequels:
They're even doing original - separate from any manga - story sequels like...
Not an anime. Onyx Equinox - Watch on Crunchyroll
I would avoid any other trailer if you want to go in as unspoiled as possible
because that first episode was rather intense.
No noticeable hiccups in this exceptionally animated mythical fantasy.

Baby Shark (spinoff of Youtube channel)
Big Nate (children's book CG adaptation)

Sequels & spinoffs have been disregarded for this one to avoid repetition.
"Animate the Inanimate"
It feels like, more so than previous decades,

This time I crossed...
Yeah, I know cliche.
It feels like PBS Kids Go! infected what the quentessential post-2014 ongoing cartoon is, particularly in the realm of moralizing slices of life.
