As per Christmas tradition, Aqua yet again turns the blog into Pitchfork for a day and invites you to take a look at his favourite Japanese songs of the year.
It’s that time of year again, and Iro’s resurrecting his motley collection of arbitrary-awards-that-really-just-started-as-jokes-but-I-guess-it’s-tradition-now. Who wins the year’s Yamato 2199 award, Zeppeli award, or Love Lab award? Read ahead to find out!
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.
As is our custom, the GLORIO crew will be posting a variety of retrospectives on anime, music, drama, and whatever else we want to talk about that happened in 2017. As is also our custom, I’ll be kicking things off with my favorite anime moments of the year.
