A Very GLORIO 2017: Marlin Presents “Nerds in Love”

Despite the dearth in truly outstanding shows, there have been a lot of good romances and feel good moments for me to love this past year. A big focus has been awkward spazzes and the nerds who love them, so here’s a toast! Whether it’s playing shogi and make sure a bullied girl knows she’s not alone, taking a silent grouch on random photo shoots, or coming out of your shell to find out your best online friend makes a better boyfriend, we’ve had a lot of dorks out to steal our heart.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 10

I, your brave Marlin am here to give Jel a break(mostly) as he prepares for our year’s end festivities. Meanwhile, we give a “Ganbare, Pine Jam!” as Just Because! gets into production issues again, Hina continues to shine in March Comes In Like a Lion, and Anime-Gataris goes full Samurai Flamenco.

#HATEWATCH 2017 ROUND 2: A Sister’s All You Need

Sometimes a show comes along that just deserves to be eviscerated. Perhaps it showcases the worst of anime’s stereotypes. Perhaps it takes an interesting premise and ruins it with befuddling plots or infuriating character arcs. Perhaps you think a show should literally be labelled a war crime by the Geneva Convention. That’s where the HATEWATCH comes in. When the show does it to such a degree, sometimes you need to watch it just for the cathartic value of demolishing whatever dreg of culture or bad taste it represents. This is #HATEWATCH 2017. The show: A Sister Is All You Need. Its sins: ANIME IS STILL GETTING AWAY WITH THIS LITTLE SISTER BS

First Look: TwoCar

Enter the exciting world of competitive high school sidecar motorcycle racing with two girls that kind of hate each other, but are good on the track.

First Look: Urahara

Three girls run a fashion clothing-slash-patisserie shop in the trendy neighborhood of Harajuku in Tokyo. Everything in their world is impossibly pastel and chic, but one day aliens descend to earth in order to steal its culture, and only they can fight it! For some reason!
