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?
Another day at the office for the Late Edition as Durarara!! keeps busy, Working!!! continues its streak of loose end tying, and Insight gives me the opportunity to get off as many “Deez Nuts” jokes as possible.
Gangsta returns to the Roundup with mixed results, Working!!! continues to make stunning amounts of plot progress, and My Love Story! devotes an episode to the rarest of anime rarities: parents that aren’t horrible people, living abroad, or dead.
The smell of animated beef patties, the hum of cicadas and the breeze from the giant monster battle occurring off-screen. That’s right, it’s the half time show! The Glorio Rabble have put their heads together to let you know what’s worth your valuable time, in a world where first episodes are high budget and mid-season turns filler if left out in…
Me, Iro, Euri, and Marlin frantically flail about as we try to fill in for Artemis while she’s away. Fortunately it’s a good week as old favorites Durarara!! and Working!!! are on their game, Snow White and My Love Story continue to be adorable, and Crowds drops the mic with some hot social commentary. Good times!
Love prevails as many of this week’s episodes feature romance to one degree or another. Whether you prefer the dysfunctional, roundabout relationships of Durarara!! and Working!!! or the more easy going vibe of Snow White and My Love Story!, there’s something for everyone. Also, Gatchaman Crowds Insight is still really good.
HEY GUYS AND GALS – Gatchaman Crowds Insight is really good, but also a solid week overall for the Late Edition. Every episode is at least decent, if not great, and perhaps most importantly My Love Story! returns to having the best header images.
We launch the Late Edition of the Roundup with Working!!!, Gatchaman Crowds: Insight, Gangsta, Snow White with the Red Hair, Non Non Biyori Repeat, and the return of Durarara!! X2 and My Love Story.
Taking place in the crime-ridden city of Ergastulum, Worick and Nicolas are two “handymen” who are often hired to do the dirty work of the police and mafia.
Part 1 of our guide is headlined by the hopefully glorious train wreck that is Chaos Dragon and shamefully hides Shimoseka, the front runner for Worst Show of the Season. Somewhere in the middle we have the return of Aquarion and Symphogear, the hot blooded action of Gangsta and Ushio & Tora, and some unknown romantic comedy potential with Classroom Crisis. With that kind of lineup maybe “glorious train wreck” is the best any of these shows can hope for, but surely we will find the surprise hits like we always do. Take a look, judge for yourself, and let us know what you’ll be watching.
