  1. I really don’t know what to say about this post. But if were forced to say anything, it’d probably sound a lot like “Megumi, Saber.”

    1. Absent, like pretty much everyone who had their anime debut in 2020. I wonder where the list is from and how it was compiled. I thought it would be a personal list, but it seems to be about “most popular”, which always makes me question who made the list and how. I’m used to a bit more recency bias in such lists.
