The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 10 – Early Edition

I must be in a bad mood today because nearly every Early Edition show delivers this week and yet I still find reasons to complain. School Live pays the price for all the fun it had last week, Ushio and Tora asks us to peep game, Miss Monochrome goes virus hunting, Prison School adapts the funniest chapter of the manga, and Classroom Crisis actually has people making out. Should be good times, right?

The Half Time Show: Summer 2015

The smell of animated beef patties, the hum of cicadas and the breeze from the giant monster battle occurring off-screen. That’s right, it’s the half time show! The Glorio Rabble have put their heads together to let you know what’s worth your valuable time, in a world where first episodes are high budget and mid-season turns filler if left out in…

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 3 – Early Edition

Things are looking grim for the Early Edition as Chaos Dragon becomes our first casualty of the season and many of the other shows aren’t quite up to par. Ironically we have School Live confirming it is, in fact, the darkest timeline and Prison School turning out to be quite funny. Who’d have guessed that?

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 2 – Early Edition

50% of the Roundup Early Edition shows now have “School” in the title as we add the deliciously dark School Live! and the eccentric Prison School. OK fine one of them is actually “classroom” but close enough. Meanwhile, Chaos Dragon, Ushio and Tora, and Classroom Crisis trip up a bit but hey, Miss Monochrome is still great!

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 1 – Early Edition

With several members of the Glorio Crew out and about this summer, we’re going to try something a little different: we’re now going to have an Early and Late edition of the Roundup! Starting today we’ll be rounding up Chaos Dragon, Ushio and Tora, Miss Monochrome, and Classroom Crisis to be joined next week by School Live! and Prison School. Then on Friday join us for the Late edition to see what other shows we’ll be covering.

First Look: Classroom Crisis

In the future, gifted students have been gathered as a special tech development wing of a megacorporation. After wasting ridiculous amounts of money trying to rescue their new classmate, it seems changes are in store.

GLORIO Summer 2015 Anime Guide Part 1

Part 1 of our guide is headlined by the hopefully glorious train wreck that is Chaos Dragon and shamefully hides Shimoseka, the front runner for Worst Show of the Season. Somewhere in the middle we have the return of Aquarion and Symphogear, the hot blooded action of Gangsta and Ushio & Tora, and some unknown romantic comedy potential with Classroom Crisis. With that kind of lineup maybe “glorious train wreck” is the best any of these shows can hope for, but surely we will find the surprise hits like we always do. Take a look, judge for yourself, and let us know what you’ll be watching.
