Hi, I’m Artemis McBishiehots. You may remember me from such high quality articles as All Your Honies, and it’s a pleasure – nay, a privilege – to be handing out the awards tonight for the most memorable males who graced the screen in 2015. What, you thought all my dreams would wither like dried-up flowers…
Jel kicks off our annual year end tradition of recapping our highlights (and sometimes lowlights) of the year by sharing a few of his favorite moments of 2016.
Tis the season for zombies, vampires, blood, and vomiting or at least that’s what this week’s Roundup episodes would have you believe.
We sink our teeth into a whole lot of vampire action this week with Dance With Devils and Owarimonogatari exploring their respective backstories. That’s not necessarily a good thing. At least we always have Osomatsu-san and Miss Monochrome around to keep us amused.
On a very special episode of Mr. Osomatsu: Jyushimatsu learns the joy – and pain – of falling in love. It’s also one of the best episodes of the year. This is not a joke, I am totally serious.
Osomatsu tries to handle a murder mystery and it goes about as well as you’d expect, Dance With Devils takes itself slightly less serious for like 30 seconds, Miss Monochrome discovers the bonding power of Swan paddle boats, and after 8 episodes of behaving Owarimonogatari has to let out its pervy side a bit.
Pretty average week of mid-season episodes save for Dance With Devils pulling out its most amazingly ridiculous song yet. Can I write about it without referencing Ghost Trick or Tokyo Jungle? I guess not.
A bit of a down week as Osomatsu starts to show its age, Miss Monochrome can’t decide what to do with this week’s episode, and Monogatari wraps up one of its worst arcs. But hey, Dance with Devils will never disappoint us, right?
Dance With Devils teaches us that Chinese gangster souls taste better than roast duck, Miss Monochrome learns that strange men that pop out of giant tuna make great friends, and Osomatsu reminds you that everyone hates you because you hate yourself. Good times!
In this week’s installment… Osomatusu gets a little TOO REAL, Dance with Devils triggers the incest route, Miss Monochrome teaches us that Santa lives in Finland, and Owarimonogatari is boring. Oh and hey, Concrete Revolutio joins The Roundup! The Roundup is a weekly guide to all the “other” shows we’re watching this season. Check out our…
I’m selling out for search engine hits and highlighting the fact that Owarimongatari parodies JAMES BOND RETURNS IN SPECTRE RELEASE DATE, Osomatsu-san does STREET FIGHTER V PC BETA DELAYED, and Miss Monochrome goes STAR WARS EPISODE VII NEW TRAILER SPOILERS. How’s that for ethics in anime journalism?
The Roundup returns with a new lightweight edition as we’re just about back at full staff and picking up full size posts again. Join the fun as we take on Dance With Devils, Beautiful Bones, the returning Miss Mister Monochrome, Owarimonogatari, and starting next week Osomatsu-san.
Ritsuka Tachibana is a seemingly normal high school student whose family has a history studying folklore and magic. After a strange encounter with the student council, her home is attacked by devil worshipping ninja vampires. Did I mention it’s also a musical? How is this not anime of the year?
Like the changing of the leaves the Fall anime season brings a change in source materials, with the latest crop of shows full of light novel adaptations and anime originals. In grand Glorio Blog tradition, I’m in charge of the second part, which features the anticipated One Punch Man, the not-so-glorious return of Glorio Blog dark horse Garo and noitaminA’s umpteenth attempt at winning back people with actual standards. Furthermore, there’s girls being flirty with girls, guys being flirty with guys, girls being flirty with a guy with no personality and a guy pretending he flirts with guys because he’s not allowed to flirt with girls. Anime sure is the best, isn’t it?
