The Wrap-Up: Spring 2021

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.

First Look: 86: Eighty Six

The Republic of San Magnolia, made up of eighty-five territories, has long been at war with a neighboring country, but has created a series of supposedly unmanned drones that allows them to wage battle with zero casualties. However, the truth is that beyond San Magnolia’s utopian-like walls lies a forsaken eighty-sixth sector, whose population, tasked with piloting these “unmanned” mecha, are regularly slaughtered on the battlefield. Lena, a handler employed by the San Magnolia military, has just been assigned to command a detachment of these Eighty-Sixers.
