The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 8

Set your fun levels to ZERO as Death Parade brutally concludes its two part murder mystery, Yatterman reminds you that your childhood heroes are dead, and both Maria and Yurikuma throw in a few rape attempts to round things out. Good times!

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 7

Shirobako somehow makes a character worse than Tarou, Death Parade delivers the crime drama no one wanted, and KUMA SHOOOCK!! We catch up on Yurikuma Arashi during its week off. Yes, I just wanted to say KUMA SHOOOCK!! again. Shabadado.

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 4

Shoooooock! (kuma shock)… I’ve been waiting all season to slip that in and finally get my chance as Yurikuma Arashi guest stars in the Roundup this week. As one show enters, we also have our second drop of the season. What could it possibly be???

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 2

Good times all around as Roundup vets Shirobako and Garo deliver some fresh perspectives and the new shows continue to deliver on their potential. Earth Defense Club is somehow still funny, Death Parade expands its emotional range, Maria stays as sharp as ever, and Yatterman delivers one of the first get out of your seat and cheer moments of the season.

All Your Monies: January 26th 2015

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew 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 it’s the triumphant return of the feature’s most long-tenured franchise

The Roundup: Winter 2015 Volume 1

The Roundup returns with a brand new lineup of Winter shows and a few favorites from last season. Magical Boys, a swanky version of the afterlife, medieval sex witches, adorable dystopian uprisings, and a show already dropped in the first round? Just another Tuesday afternoon at the Glorio Blog.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 8

The lineup is thinning out as we approach the final few episodes of the season, but The Roundup is still going strong! Psycho Pass is conspicuously missing (more on that a bit later today), Garo reminds us that Rage of Bahamut isn’t the only rad show by Mappa this season, and Iro gets to yell DEEEEEEEEEEEN for the first time in a good long while.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 5

Shirobako cements its place as The Roundup’s sleeper hit as Marlin gives it a second chance. Unfortunately most of the the other shows continue to flounder as Yona fights pacing issues, Argevollen stays irrelevant, and I am one blue hedgehog away from dropping SeHa Girls.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 4

Most of the Glorio crew returns this week but unfortunately it’s to a mediocre batch of episodes. Marlin and I struggle to stick with SeHa Girls among other shows, but at least Aqua and Gee have Shirobako’s interesting topic of 2D vs. 3D animation to save this week from being a total wash.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 3

An abbreviated Roundup this week as some of the Glorio Crew is on the run. Iro narrowly avoids disappointment with Log Horizon, Gee hangs out with Shirobako, Aqua is appalled again by Psycho-Pass, and I’m mildly amused by SeHa Girls return to watchability.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 2

Yona gives Marlin whiplash and Argevollen goes berserk on Gee. Iro survives a Log Horizon info dump while Aqua boos and hisses at Psycho-Pass. Chris is still ambivalent on Seven Deadly Sins while I’m 100% sure about my feelings for this week’s episode of SeHa Girls.

The Roundup: Fall 2014 Volume 1

New season, new time slot, new format, new Roundup! Marlin is sticking with Akatsuki no Yona, Argevollen has somehow survived Gee’s cutting block, Aqua is getting Toku in our anime with Garo, Timmy is still eating the Fruit of Grisaia despite our warnings, Chris is keeping the shonen hope alive with Seven Deadly Sins, and I’m content watching 12 minute long Dreamcast commercials with Seha Girls. At least Log Horizon is still cool?

First Look: GARO – The Carved Seal of Flames

In a dark age of witchcraft and demons running amok, the sickly King of Valiante trusts his vizier Mendoza to rid the land of misery and disease by hunting down witches and warlocks. When a witch gives birth while burning on the stake, a mysterious armour-clad fiend saves the baby and gallops off into the dark. Seventeen years later, Germán Luis reveals the truth behind the inquisition to a particularly interested prostitute, while his son León is chased by the king’s guard.
