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.
2020 bad but anime good? The GLORIO crew chats about the top 10 shows of the year.
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.

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.
It’s hard to look back on this dumpster fire of a year and get enthusiastic about anything, but hey, at least there was some good anime? And so we are kicking off our annual look back at all the GLORIO anime and anime adjacent things we watched in 2020.
