And so another GLORIO year comes to a close and we’ve reached the moment everyone has been waiting for: our picks the best shows of 2015.
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.
We’ll have a more official farewell to the Summer season later today, but we say good bye to a few other favorites in the Late edition… well, for now as Durararararara is scheduled to return for the winter and Working!!! has promised a special hour long grand finale.
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.
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.
