Gee you can’t just make up awards as an excuse to praise whatever you feel like.
It’s certainly been a long year everyone, but thankfully the top-notch anime we’ve gotten to see this year has made the tumultuous time a bit more tolerable.
24 episodes later, Trigger and A1’s joint robot saga has finally reached its conclusion. We talk about what we got out of this hotly anticipated collaboration (hint: mostly pain)
Zero Two and Hiro face VIRM in a final showdown, while back on Earth the remaining Parasites begin to rebuild human society.
Some time after the previous episode, the Parasites struggle to survive on a newly adult-less(?) Earth. That is until Hiro discovers where Zero Two has gone and the crew head off into SPACE.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Aqua go way overtime as we reluctantly say BYE BYE to the very solid Spring 2018 anime season.
With Hiro and the Klaxosaur Princess incapacitated, it’s up to Zero Two and Dr FRANXX to break through and rescue them and, by proxy, the entire planet.
We try to talk about the new season but it’s bad, so we also talk about Osmosis Jones, Hyougemono, and, of course, six degrees of separation with Spider Riders.
The Parasites gear up for the final battle against the Klaxosaurs, as Hiro and Zero Two attempt to activate a mysterious superweapon.
We step back in time…not that far actually, to see the origins of the mysterious Doctor Franxx, while in the present the Parasites complain a lot but don’t actually do anything.
Team GLORIO USA Lite (Jel, Iro, and Gee) talk about why we love mecha, the challenges mecha anime has faced over the past 20 years, and where we’d like to see mecha go in the future. Also, we try not to get sued by Harmony Gold.
Hiro decides Mitsuru and Kokoro should get married…for some reason, prompting a shocking but welcome instance of police brutality.
The Nines return to pay Squad 13 a visit and bring their RADICAL MARXIST SJW agenda with them. Also this week, Zigg returns to the blog and immediately wishes he hadn’t.
Team GLORIO USA hands out mid-term grades to all the shows we’re watching, determining if each show is better, worse, or the same since the last time we discussed them. Also, we pay tribute to the classic Pokémon character Nurse Jenny.

Squad 13 team up with a bunch of other FRANXX units, including the enigmatic Nines, for an assault on the ‘Gran Crevasse’

The Parasites return home to ‘The Garden’, the mysterious laboratory where they were all raised. Zero Two becomes increasingly angry and upset, prompting Hiro to try and find out what the matter is.
Jel, Iro, Marlin, and Gee aka Team GLORIO USA share their final thoughts on the Winter season. We talk about our favorite (or not so favorite) shows, discuss if Netflix is bad for anime, and Jel and Iro continue to battle over segues.
If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most.
