How many episodes does this action anime tv show of 2020 have? The answer to that is, no clue, because this anime just released its first episode on the second of October.
It brings action, fantasy and teenage girls together in a nice little package. There isn’t too much known about it from a plot point of view, but the basic idea is that a weapon is created using science and magic, but is most effective when wielded by teenage girls.
A lot of people have enjoyed the first episode so far, and if you like binging shows, I would wait until it’s fully completed however, if you watch weekly, the 9th of October will be the date episode 2 comes out.

I guess all I can say is, I hope this is not foreshadowing a real life future.
Next up we have Deca-Dence. In a world where humanity is on the brink of extinction, in an anime that isn’t Attack on Titan, we see the conflict and battle that happens when you combine unknown life forms with high tech mobile fortresses.
