The decade makes us look back and see how we’ve changed these last ten years. When we started the GLORIO Blog over seven years ago, I was billed as the “romance guy”. I still keep that in remembrance in the many awards of my Year End Post. Yet, I can’t help but notice how my tastes have changed over the decade. While I still enjoy a good romance show, my real passion is for good comedies, the kind of shows you can only get from the unique strengths of animation and Japanese sensibilities.
Welcome to the Lost and Found, our convoluted question and answer segment where we tackle the most pressing issues from our recent search terms. Whether it’s a perfectly innocent inquiry about your favorite anime or a search that makes us question the depths of human depravity, we are here for you. In this edition, Jel curates the finest in anime music, art, and poetry for the most mature and dignified experience the Glorio Blog has ever seen.
A veritable cross-counter of anime watching: newcomer Artemis watches the sleeper hit fantasy Rage of Bahamut: Genesis, and the ever-cynical Iro watches blog favorite Monthly Girls’ Nozaki-kun in return. A fair trade? Read on to see what we thought!

Welcome to “A Very GLORIO 2014”, our look back at the best of the past year. We’ll be featuring a different post from each of our authors everyday leading up to our top 10 shows of the year. To start things off Jel fights off his inner cynic and lists his favorite anime moments from 2014.
Summer is generally the least interesting period of the year in the world of music, yet I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the sheer amount of enjoyable anime songs this season. I suppose the guy running many a voice actress’s lackluster soprano through Protools deserves a break as well. In any case, it’s time to select the best of the best as the season comes to its end.
Chiyo re-evaulates her relationship with Nozaki after finding old Valentine’s Day chocolates she had planned on giving him. The Girls make plans to attend the school festival and sparks (OK, fireworks actually) fly when they run into the Guys.
Nozaki wants to add some excitement to his manga so he tries to surprise Chiyo with a series of pranks for inspiration. The boys all crash at Nozaki’s place when a storm shuts down the trains, giving him the perfect material for a new slumber party scenario.
Seo conveniently has a spare ticket to a movie and asks Waka to come along. When a Drama Club member is injured before rehearsal, Hori auditions his friends for a replacement. This does not go well.
Chiyo and Nozaki get stuck at school after forgetting their umbrellas during a big rainstorm. Naturally, this inspires Nozaki to write a manga scene about it. The two meet up with Miyako and try to help her stand up to Maeno’s terrible editing demands.
Kashima is upset because she thinks Hori is ignoring her when in reality he’s just exhausted from splitting time between the manga and the Drama Club. Nozaki’s crew brainstorms ideas to help lighten Hori’s background work while Kashima takes drastic action to make her Senpai notice her.
Chiyo Sakura tries to confess to the grown man boy she likes, but through a series of misunderstandings she discovers he’s secretly a popular shoujo manga artist and accidentally agrees to be his assistant.
Summer 2014 marks the second anniversary of the Glorio Blog (hooray for us), and we’ve got some heavy hitters kicking off our ninth season of anime coverage. Sailor Moon, the return of Sword Art Online, and a new anime original from Gen Urobuchi headline part 1 of our guide.
