Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) 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 week we get a glimpse into our dark, dark future
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.
Love is over as we bid farewell to Snow White and My Love Story!, or at least until next week’s episode of Working!!! We sure did have a lot of romance in this edition of The Roundup over the past few weeks, we may need to resuscitate Marlin.
Kind of ironic that in the week that My Love Story! takes an episode off the rest of the Roundup delivers in the romance department. Both Working!!! and Snow White have us squeeing like fan girls as actual progress is made in key relationships. How revolutionary. Oh and Gatchaman Crowds Insight? Still awesome.
Don’t believe Takeo’s shirt: My Love Story!! did not do a good job this week, nor did Working!!! which barely redeems itself in its last few minutes, or Durarara!! which didn’t even bother airing an episode. Fortunately Gatchaman Crowds Insight ups the intensity and Snow White finally makes a move.
Gatchaman Crowds Insight makes its triumphant return after last week’s hiatus, Working!!! is still pretty great this season, and not much else. At least My Love Story! has given me and Marlin reason to keep the S.S. Team Saijou afloat… for now.
An abbreviated Late Edition this week as Gatchaman Crowds Insight takes an episode off. That makes me very sad. Meanwhile, Durarara reminds us to hate Izaya, Working tries to do a little too much for one episode, Snow White has too many flashbacks, and My Love Story might be sinking my favorite ship. At least Insight will be back next week?
