Weekly Japanese Pop Culture Thread (December 2, 2020)

Welcome to The Avocado’s weekly discussion of Japanese pop culture! As you may have heard, The New York Times included Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken! on its “Best TV Shows of 2020” and “Best International Shows of 2020” lists recently.1 But the true test will come later this month when voting opens for the year’s most famous and important media awards: The Pits! The Anime category will be posted on 12/11, so now is the perfect time to start making your lists. Or, if you’re like me, you can quickly catch up on the shows you haven’t quite finished yet!

Yes, I will finish all of the anime in my queue!

And, as always…

What have you been watching/reading/playing/eating/listening to lately?

Happy Wednesday! 🙂
