We catch up on Kamen Rider and Digimon, talk about all the shows putting the “romance” in romantic comedy, and declare Birdie Wing the greatest television show of all time.
We hit a wide variety of topics including the Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer anime announcement, the latest in Saturday morning kids’ shows, and some backlog we’re finally catching up on. Oh, and I guess some currently airing anime too.
We say goodbye to Fena: Pirate Princess, catch up on a few leftovers from last season, then settle in with the Fall season shows we’ll (probably) be sticking with.
Scotland Loves Animation is a yearly festival that runs in Glasgow and Edinburgh, bringing a curated selection of premieres and classic movies to the big screen for a week in October. Three of us from the GLORIO crew were there this month for the latest instalment, where we watched fifteen different films in the charmingly cosy Edinburgh Filmhouse cinema.
After a great Spring season and not so great Summer season, it seems balance has been restored to the anime world. The crew gives their first impressions of the good and bad (but mostly good?) new shows of the Fall 2021 season.
In the near future, holographic technology has become omnipresent and part of everyday life. With that has come a new urban legend about ‘hologram ghosts’. At Hazakura Junior High School, students are being attacked by a mysterious ‘sewn-lip man’ and it’s up to first-year student Hiro Amanokawa to get to the bottom of things.
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. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
It’s strange times in the anime world as we try to do first looks, final thoughts, and Fall 2021 season previews in one single episode.
It’s alive! It’s aliiiiive! In celebration of what has to be one of the greatest anime seasons in recorded history, we at The Glorio Blog were reminded of the fact that we are, apparently, a blog, and therefore expected to deliver written content. Hence, the highly anticipated (?) return of our most tried and truest feature — The Wrap-Up.
Zigg looks back on a year that soared and stumbled in equal measure, and picks out the stories that shone the brightest.
Zigg rounds up the old gang for one final Adventure, and investigates whether this movie is a fitting conclusion for the original Digimon story.
Coming down the home stretch of a weird season with show ending at odd times, we wrap up Great Pretender (for now), Gundam Build Divers Re:Rise, and Kamen Rider Zero-One.
Taichi and the gang attempt to cross the sea, but are attacked by a mysterious whirlpool. They’re saved by Gomamon and his partner, a rather neurotic 6th grader named Joe.
Taichi is sucked into the heart of the Digital World, where he meets his old friend Sora and a new girl, Mimi. Meanwhile, Koushiro is stuck in the network and has to make his way to Taichi manually.
The crew discusses the impact of COVID-19 on the anime industry and catches up on shows we’re watching, while we still can…
Taichi and Yamato team up with the mysterious new Digimon in a race to save Tokyo from being blown to smithereens.
Tai confronts the mysterious other boy who has shown up in the Digital World, and Izzy discovers that the American military has been overtaken by the corruption
