The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 8

f you ever want to sell someone on watching Classicaloid just tell them at some point Franz Schubert destroys half a dozen other classical composers in a dis track so hot they all turn into Parappa the Rapper characters. Nothing else matters this week… well except shout out to Marlin for giving me a breather on some shows this week and don’t worry, Artemis will be back soon.

The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 7

It’s been a long week and most of the Roundup shows did not bring their A game, so apologies in advance if I sound more like a cranky old man than usual. Fortunately Little Witch Academia stands out as a bright spot with its best episode yet. Nothing like some ol’ timey cartoons to improve your mood.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Winter 2017

We’re past the halfway point of this season already, which means it’s once again time to pick our favourite anime song of the season. With JoJo’s Bizarre Adventure absent from the lineup for the first time in what seems to be forever, the path is clear for a larger variety of songs to be featured, most of which from shows probably no one’s even watching.

The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 6

Classicaloid wins this week with an appropriately bizarre take on “Swan Lake” and I hate the self-proclaimed fan service episode of Dragon Maid, but not for the reasons you may think. Otherwise it’s business as usual for the Winter Roundup. See you next week.

The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 5

We are moving the Roundup to Fridays which means a double dose of Dragon Maid this week, for better or worse. While that show continues to frustrate me, it’s a solid week for the rest of the lineup with March Comes In Like a Lion delivering its best episode of the second half. With all these shows still being pretty good nearly halfway through, maybe this season isn’t as bad as we thought it would be?

The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 3

More debate this week as Gee and I disagree on this season’s premier weird and awkward teenage romance anime – no, not that one, I mean the ending of Seiren’s first story arc. Also, has Interviews with Monster Girls finally hit the wall and become the dumb harem show we originally thought it would be? Join us and discuss.

The Roundup: Winter 2017 Volume 1

WE’RE BACK! Classicaloid and March Comes In Like a Lion return for the first installment of the Winter 2017 Roundup, joined by Onihei, Interviews with Monster Girls, and a new feature: The Little Witch Academia GIF of the week. We’ll have more shows next week as more second episodes air, so stay tuned.

The Catch-Up: Winter 2017

The Winter season sure looks bad but there is still plenty to watch with more episodes of Classicaloid, March Comes In Like a Lion, KONOSUBA, and Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu on the way. There’s also more Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans so make of that what you will…

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 10

AAAAAHHH! This season is already almost over! This year is already almost over! We have some fun year-in-review posts lined up starting tomorrow, but in the mean time there is still good anime to talk about. Girlish Number and Yuri On Ice are nearly complete, but strong episodes from Classicaloid and March Comes In Like a Lion make me happy they will be continuing into next season.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 7

No March Comes In Like a Lion this week makes me sad and Yuri doesn’t deliver anything quite as historic as last week, but the Roundup is still as strong as ever. Now go watch Girlish Number and then call your parents, they’re probably worried about you.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 5

It’s been a rough week, and in these difficult times writing about cartoons feels more frivolous than usual. Perhaps more than ever though, I’m personally enjoying the comfort and brief escapism of some good anime. So take a minute to relax and forget about all the horrible things going on in the world for just a moment. I’ll be happy if we can at least offer that much.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 4

Here at the Glorio Blog we always strive to deliver QUALITY anime coverage, regardless of our production schedule. It helps when there’s a lot of good shows to talk about of course, and I’m probably going to sound like a broken record here but wow this season is good. Yuri and March deliver as always, Girlish Number and ClassicaLoid are turning out pretty good, and somehow Aqua is still watching (and enjoying?) Kiss Him, Not Me.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 3

The Roundup keeps on truckin’ with our usual batch of animes. Artemis is back but a few shows find themselves flirting with the chopping block, if not being cut altogether. You’ll have to read on to find out more, but I’ll tell you now I would probably never cut a show in which someone can say “Beethoven-senpai” unironically.
