This week on Anime Pulse we got the worst anime of 2020, the satisfying end to a RomCom series, and hoop earrings. Up first Joseph gets snowed in and worn out trying to dig back to civilization, and Andrew is looking into our top picks for worst of the worst in 2020. Afterwards comes Industry News with a teacher being asked to remove her hoops, ANN’s preemptive discussion censoring of an anime, and a man made of chainsaws. Finally in the reviews Joseph enjoys the end of a fish-eyed romance, and Andrew joins a college for witches by stepping on some flowers.

Andrew, I greatly enjoyed how angry the worst show of 2020 made you and look forward to finding out what other shows could inspire that level of vitriol. 🙂
As for the dig on video game reviewers, why would having more choices in how to adjust the difficulty level of a game be a negative? Wouldn’t games being more accessible to a broader player base be a boon for the industry?

I think Rent-a-Girlfriend broke Andy. RIP
I know no one’s going to come to ANN’s bat, but I am. The ANN Forums, as most forums do, turn to shit if a discussion goes on long enough, especially in this day and age.
To side with those who think ANN are being ridiculous, I will say that I don’t recall them locking the forums down when Shield Hero or Goblin Slayer came around. Those two have some hinky sexual content. Maybe they did shut the forums down because of those shows. I really don’t spend a lot of time on ANN.
On the topic of traps, it’s not a completely positive word. I think it’s like the term tranny, which isn’t uniformly said as a negative word, but in time it has fallen out of favor. Sorry, fellas, but sometimes as you get older,
