Anime Spotlight: December 2019


Happy holidays, everyone! We hope you’re enjoying the season and not spending too much time running away from relatives who won’t stop asking when you’re having kids and parties where you don’t know anyone. But in case you need to escape into the soft, gentle arms of TV or computer screen, we’ve got a few suggestions on what you can watch.

Welcome to Anime Spotlight–a monthly column where the Two Beard Gaming crew shares a few anime we’ve enjoyed, and hopefully, you’ll share a few with us, as well. Fingers crossed we all find something cool and new to watch, and a peppy end credits song will roll.

Here’s what we’re digging this month:


Humanity Has Declined

In a post-apocalyptic future, the remaining humans try to maintain good relations with the growing fairy population. While the story is a little all over the place, we loved this show’s candy-coloured black humour.


Juni Taisen: Zodiac War

Every twelve years, twelve warriors (each representing one of the animals of the Chinese zodiac) gather for a fight to the death. This is battle royale as a medium for telling short stories. Very entertaining.


Kenichi: The Mightiest Disciple


Fifteen-year-old pushover Kenichi Shirahama is rescued from bullies by new student Miu Fūrinji. After Miu introduces him to the martial arts masters who live at her family’s dojo, Kenichi embarks on a quest to get stronger. Funny and exciting with a killer opening theme.
