A Very GLORIO 2015: Marlin Thinks Love is Over

Last year I was blessed with some great romance shows that made up for just how few had been released, but this year I have to strain to string together more than two or three shows together where romance was the most appealing factor. Still, there were a few really good things to talk about. Snow White remained captivating and adorable all the way to the break, and Yamada-kun’s heartfelt romance almost made up for it’s runaway train of a final stretch. With all that, I’ll try to stick to my niche as much as I can before going off the deep end once the Ero-Kawaii-tier Awards start flying around.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Summer 2015

Bad news: Summer is over. Worse news: Summer season is not yet over. As you might have been able to tell from the dearth of content, the current anime load-out hasn’t really managed to swipe us off our feet. A more satisfactory review awaits you in a few weeks, but now that we’re halfway through the season already, the members of our merry crew have had more than enough time to pick their favourite anime song of the season. That is, if they even watched anything at all this season.

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 7 – Late Edition

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?

The Half Time Show: Summer 2015

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…

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 4 – Late Edition

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!

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 3 – Late Edition

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.

GLORIO Summer 2015 Anime Guide Part 3

Part 3 of our Summer 2015 Anime Guide is basically a formality for me to talk about my most anticipated show of the season, Gatchaman Crowds Inisght. Hopefully the surreal, colorful look at life in the Social Media Age will be the sequel we never knew we needed. As for the rest of it, well, despite what Gee tells me about Prison School I can’t say we saved the best for last. But, who knows? Maybe Bikini Warriors and Pillow Boys will turn out to be new anime classics! Take a look and let us know what you think looks watchable.
