Only half joking with that title, this year has been marked with a lot of changes, not the least of which being my entry into studies for the priesthood. Still you’re not here to listen to me talk about contemplating celibacy, you’re here for the people who pretty clearly are on the opposite end of the spectrum. 2016 was a light year for pure romance shows, but I’m here for you to dish out the best of the best.
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. 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.
We say good bye to BBK/BRNK, Durarara, and the shorts, but Snow White, Osomatsu, Rakugo, and Dagashi Kashi will stubbornly hold on for one more episode. Come guys, we got a new season to prepare for, wrap it up already!
I fixed my computer just in time to say goodbye to Konosuba and watch Karamatsu get his junk ripped off. What a season of anime this has been.
Our Roundup shows intensify as the end of the season approaches. Join us for the emotional drama and psychological pain that is Ojisan and Marshmallow and Sekko Boys… and probably Rakugo. Also my computer broke last night and I couldn’t do screencaps so enjoy pictures of robots punching robots courtesy of Iro.
A bit of a hit and miss week with some shows doing better than others, but the good shows were pretty great. Sure we have our subtle, measured use of drama with shows like Snow White and Rakugo, but I’ll take the hilarious vomiting blood reactions of Osomatsu and the marble statue blackmail sex of Sekko Boys any day.
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Aqua) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This time, perhaps for the first time in AYM history (except that time it was All Your Honies), the boys handily outnumber the girls!
