Top 7 Upcoming Action Anime Winter 2020

The action genre can be so versatile – you can get a bit of romance, mystery, fantasy, martial arts, ecchi… it can be literally combined with absolutely any other genre with no problem at all. That’s the charm of the action genre as I like to call it.

I honestly feel like whenever I want to get motivated I just seek action anime because the action itself just gets me going (just look at anime like Naruto or Black Clover!).

The upcoming action anime package of winter 2020 is going to include very exciting veterans along with very refreshing newbies. I honestly can’t wait for some of them to air already so let’s check it out! I really hope you will share my excitement after reading this list.
