We catch up on some older shows, geek out about Keep Your Hands off Eizouken! again, and Jel reveals the true power behind Dorohedoro.
Spoilers: this season seems alright.
To wrap up our coverage of the GLORIO decade, Zigg takes a look at ten unforgettable moments from ten different shows across ten years.
We’ve entered a reality where Fate is one of the biggest franchises around. Fate/Grand Order (the gacha-based mobile game) alone passed the $3 billion marker in gross revenue in 2019, meaning it’s made about as much money as the entire Legend of Zelda game series combined. How did this franchise, unknown in 2010, become an international juggernaut?
Everyone knows Bananya is anime of the year, so we focus on ten other good anime from 2019.
With the end of Zi-O and the beginning of Zero-One, the Neo-Heisei era of Kamen Rider is now over. Not only this, but it fits perfectly into the last decade, meaning I have an excuse to take a look back at the last ten years of Kamen Rider, and assign arbitrary awards instead of moaning about how bad they were.
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.
The decade makes us look back and see how we’ve changed these last ten years. When we started the GLORIO Blog over seven years ago, I was billed as the “romance guy”. I still keep that in remembrance in the many awards of my Year End Post. Yet, I can’t help but notice how my tastes have changed over the decade. While I still enjoy a good romance show, my real passion is for good comedies, the kind of shows you can only get from the unique strengths of animation and Japanese sensibilities.
It sure has been an interesting decade for anime. I don’t just mean in terms of new trends or the anime industry in general (although I’m sure the same could be said for these aspects as well), but rather in terms of my personal anime viewing experience. Having spent over half the decade living in…
While the GLORIO blog has technically only existed since 2012, we are still declaring the 2010’s “The GLORIO Decade”. And so as we move into the 2020’s, we’re taking a look back at just how GLORIO the decade was. First up: Jel’s favorite anime of the 2010’s
With another GLORIO year in the books, it’s time once again to look back at our picks for the best anime of the year.
We continue across the sea of stars, where Gee and Iro watch the seminal 1988-1997 Legend of the Galactic Heroes OVA a few episodes at a time. Keep an eye out for this podcast between main installments of The GLORIO Chat as we work our way through the history books. This time: Episodes 108-110.
colons takes a look at movie posters from films covered in Glorio’s King of the Kaiju.
We here at Glorio routinely subject ourselves to a lot of crap on a yearly basis so other people don’t have to. We’re like the garbagemen of seasonal anime.
Ciao tutti, while my living situation has been certainly interesting over the past year, 2019 will go down in history as a pretty bad year for anime. I barely watched any comedies or romances, and even the ones I did were not all bangers. Thankfully, we still got a few diamonds in the rough.
Whether you want tower block murder mysteries, successful scam artists or giant monsters beating the stuffing out of each other, you’re in luck because J-drama has it all. Here’s a look at what I watched this year.
Gee is determined to use this opportunity to talk about Granbelm as much as possible.
Iro is still here with a bag full of arbitrary and somewhat questionable awards.
GLORIO’s King of the Kaiju is Euri and colons’ excuse to watch monster movies. For their seventh episode they take a look at the 1972 film, Daigoro vs. Goliath.
We continue across the sea of stars, where Gee and Iro watch the seminal 1988-1997 Legend of the Galactic Heroes OVA a few episodes at a time. Keep an eye out for this podcast between main installments of The GLORIO Chat as we work our way through the history books. This time: Episodes 99-101.
