Best Spring 2020 Anime Streaming Now on Funimation

Spring 2020 is filled with excellent anime, and luckily, many of them are available in both sub and dub on Funimation’s website. Let’s check out some of the best shows from this season that you can easily watch with just a few clicks and a Funimation subscription!


5. Arte

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2020 – currently airing

Here’s a sweet little show about a woman living in 16th century Florence who dreams of being a famous painter. Unfortunately, women during this time were considered second-class citizens, so she has a difficult time finding a mentor until an artisan named Leo (no, that that one... probably) takes her in. What follows is a shounen-style rise to the top where Arte proves her worth in the painting world and shows everyone that she’s just as cut out to be an artist as anyone else!


4. Appare-Ranman!

  • Episodes: 3+
  • Aired: April 2020 – currently airing

What do you get when you combine the main character from Dr. Stone, the setting of JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure: Steel Ball Run, the Meiji-era steampunk atmosphere of Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress, and the unbridled chaos of Wacky Races? Appare-Ranman, of course! Teen genius Appare and his samurai chaperone Kosame get stuck in Los Angeles after a doomed expedition from Japan in Appare’s homemade steamboat. They decide to join the Trans-America Wild Race in order to secure prize money funds to return home, but they’ll meet many colorful friends and foes along the way. This show has sadly been put on hiatus due to the pandemic, but its first three episodes are jam-packed with enough action and comedy for us to recommend you check it out right away!



3. Kaguya-sama wa Kokurasetai?: Tensai-tachi no Renai Zunousen (Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 2)

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2020 – currently airing

Kaguya, Shirogane, Chika, and the rest of the gang are back for more romance-related hijinks in Kaguya-sama season 2! Our two favorite tsunderes have grown closer, but they’re just as stubborn as ever and have raised the complexity of their mind games to force the other to confess. Also, the new OP absolutely slaps. What more reason do you need to watch this show?


2. Kakushigoto

  • Episodes: 12
  • Aired: April 2020 – currently airing

Here’s a father-daughter bonding show with a twist – the father is the author of a sex comedy manga and does everything in his meager power to keep his innocent young daughter Hime from finding out. Expect rapid-fire gags and adorable moments galore, but there’s also a flash-forward at the end of each episode where an 18-year-old Hime shuffles through the mementos that her (presumably now deceased) father left for her. Kakushigoto is hilarious, but it’s sure to destroy us in the end...


1. Fruits Basket 2nd Season

  • Episodes: 25
  • Aired: April 2020 – currently airing

Speaking of hotly anticipated second seasons, Fruits Basket has returned with more heartwarming (and heartbreaking) tales of the lives of Tooru and the Souma family. This season is also a big deal because it marks the point where this new adaptation starts adapting manga material that the original 2001 series never got to. Longtime fans who’ve been waiting nearly two decades to see Rin, Kureno, Kakeru, Machi, and other previously manga-only characters come to life on the screen – now is your time!


Final Thoughts

Also be sure to check out Gleipnir – an edgy death game show about a boy who can transform into a theme park mascot – as well as Wave, Listen to Me! – a slice-of-life seinen about a career woman who tries to adjust to her new life as a late-night radio talk show host.

After the hard-hitting East Coast lifestyle hit me a bit too hard, I started pursuing my passion as a writer in my cozy home state of Ohio. Aside from that, I spend my time cooking, cosplaying, collecting anime merch, and being an improv comedy actor. I also love sneaking alliterations and stupid puns into my writing, so be on the lookout for them! 😉
