The GLORIO Decade: The 2010s in Anime Music

Music is as integral to a piece of media as visuals or plot, which is why for as long as The GLORIO Blog has existed, we have done some variety of a feature about our favourite anime songs. With the decade having come to a close, we’re presenting the most memorable tracks of them all right here, with all the pithy commentary from yours truly you’ve come to expect.

Shijo Minami Middle School is known all over the country for its excellent girls’ soft tennis team. The boys’ team, on the other hand, is little more than a punch line. Desperate to avert his club’s dissolution following a draconic new rule imposed by the student council, the team’s captain tries to recruit Maki Katsuragi, a new transfer student, after noticing his amazing reflexes.

First Look: ENDRO!

After many an adventure, Yulia “Yusha” Chardiet and her friends finally manage to defeat the Demon Lord with the power of friendship and copyright infringement. Yet in stead of banishing the monstrous overlord to another dimension, the heroes accidentally send them back in time — back to a time when Yusha was just a student at the Adventurer’s Academy.
