Gee you can’t just make up awards as an excuse to praise whatever you feel like.
Jel, Iro, Marlin, and Gee aka Team GLORIO USA share their final thoughts on the Winter season. We talk about our favorite (or not so favorite) shows, discuss if Netflix is bad for anime, and Jel and Iro continue to battle over segues.
Zigg joins the usual lineup of Jel, Iro, and Gee as we catch up on Mr. Osomatsu and it’s stellar episode 18, Garo – Vanishing Line’s penchant for bullet punching, Violet Evergarden’s big change in episode 5, and of course our favorite dumpster fire, Darling in the FranXX.
In his annual musing, Zigg talks about how he was surprised (in both good and bad ways) by many of the shows which came out this year.
2017, despite being something of a garbage fire of a year, ended up being pretty good for anime.

Behold, the field in which we grow our blogs! Lay thine eyes upon it and thou shalt see that it is barren! In the chaotic race towards the final days of this godforsaken year and the 12 Days of Glorio we’ll celebrate to see it off, we’d almost forgotten all about our seasonal look back…
It’s Garo! Again! This time we’re in a present day metropolis where distant teenager Sophie runs afoul of Horrors. Fortunately, she’s rescued by Sword, the latest wielder of the golden armour.
