The GLORIO Winter 2017 Anime Guide – Part 2

Part 1 of our winter preview guide was pretty bleak and part 2 is not much better. Fortunately there are some glimmers of hope.

Still, it is our duty to carry on and sort through the trash so you don’t have to, and we always manage to find a few surprises. Take a look at part 1 of our Winter preview guide and let us know if you agree.
