2021 had a lot of good anime. What shows made the top 10? What made #1? Has our running gag of choosing an ironic header image for this post gone too far? Read on to get at least two of these questions answered.
For their first year-end post, Peter decides to stay on the positive side and write nice things about shows they dropped part-way through. Makes sense?
As the year draws to a close, Aqua provides an overview of the most memorable and interesting characters he got to meet during these four seasons of anime and tokusatsu.
Zigg talks about how 2021 saw a resurgence in high quality, creator creator-driven anime, and how that resulted in the strongest slate of shows in quite some time.
As I was busy laying on the sofa and staring at the ceiling this year, I didn’t get around to watching too many J-dramas. I do have a handful to talk about though, so come on in!
When it comes to end-of-year anime wrap-ups, unsurprisingly, people tend to write about the best and/or worst shows of the year. You know, the ones that practically emitted a heavenly glow as angels burst into perfect harmony during the opening sequence, or else made viewers want to hurl themselves into the black, black void, cursing…
2021 was an unbelievably strong year with some legitimate generational contenders. I look back on the year and for as much shit as I love to give anime (and rightfully so sometimes), this year also saw a ton of creativity and artistic vision at work. Join me as I go through the highs (and lows) of the anime I watched in 2021.
We’ve done this for another year somehow, and Iro’s back to give a brief look at the shows he thinks are worth mentioning. There’s more than usual this time!
It is time once again to look back at the very GLORIO anime that aired in 2021, starting with a list of my favorite anime moments.
Hey kids! Remember this feature? In my latest attempt to semi-regularly resurrect some of the semi-regular features we used to run in the past, it’s long due time to talk about the best anime music of this season again.
In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
It’s alive! It’s aliiiiive! In celebration of what has to be one of the greatest anime seasons in recorded history, we at The Glorio Blog were reminded of the fact that we are, apparently, a blog, and therefore expected to deliver written content. Hence, the highly anticipated (?) return of our most tried and truest feature — The Wrap-Up.
We’d like to give a big welcome to the newest member of the GLORIO crew, Peter!
It’s been an incredibly busy time over at GLORIO Towers, what with the new season and also gestures at everything. As a result we haven’t been able to roll out our customary slate of First Loooks, but here instead are some quick bite-sized opinions on everything we’ve been watching.
We can finally say good bye to 2020, but before we move on we’re going to take a final look at the best shows of the year. If this is your first time joining us, our Top 10 list is based on votes from the GLORIO crew using a weighted scoring method guaranteed to produce a 100% accurate list. Sorry folks, it’s just science. Here’s the list, and let us know what you think.
Zigg looks back on a year that soared and stumbled in equal measure, and picks out the stories that shone the brightest.
When people finish their day and hurry home, his day starts. His diner is open from midnight to seven in the morning. They call it “Midnight Diner”. He makes whatever customers request as long as he has the ingredients for it. That’s his policy. Does he even have customers? Well, more than you might expect……
With so much extra time on my hands this year, I got through loads of J-drama! That’s a lie of course, as I marathoned a bunch this month just so this wasn’t barebones. Come read if they were trash or not!
Like many people, this year has been rather busy for me for a variety of reasons both personal and practical. So rather than my usual arbitrary awards show with bespoke categories, I’ll just be going through all the anime I watched in 2020 in chronological order and giving each one the words I think they deserve, for either good or ill.
I have nothing to say about 2020 that we all don’t already know, and when anime was delayed and we had nothing to do in the middle of the year, I went back to ye olde manga sources and started reading some random stuff.
