### Putting label in the right spot (upper-left) during animation

It took some time (half a sunday) to create a code the draws an elliptic curve with a cubic, controlling the speed of the animation and putting a label in. However, I don't know where I can put something like a legend_loc='upper left somewhere or whether that's even possible. My code is as follows:

step=0.2;
var('x,y');
a=animate([
plot(EllipticCurve(y^2==x^3+3.8*x^2-0.8*x+float(k)),xmin=-6,xmax=0
,color="red",thickness=2,legend_label=r'$y^2=x^3+3.8x^2-0.8x+{}$'.format(float(k)))
+plot(EllipticCurve(y^2==x^3+3.8*x^2-0.8*x+float(k)),xmin=10^(-9),xmax=6
,color="red",thickness=2)
+ plot(x^3+3.8*x^2-0.8*x+float(k),xmin=-6,xmax=6,color="blue",thickness=1)
for k in srange(-5,5,step)],xmin=-6,xmax=6,ymin=-20,ymax=20,gridlines=[[-6,6],[-20,20]]);
a.show(delay=1)


I also tried set_legend_options(shadow=False, loc=2) in the plot function, but that doesn't satisfy SageMath either. Anyone an idea how I can put that label at some fixed spot? Btw, it would be even better if I could put that label on the top centre above the animation. I appreciate any suggestions and help.
