Yes, I know new shows are already starting and we’re already putting out first looks, but there are still a few shows to preview. Part 3 of our guide is headlined by Darling In the FranXX, a big name collaboration between Trigger and A-1 Pictures. We also have yet another Fate project, this time in the hands of the infamous Shaft director Akiyuki Shinbo. Will they be good? Maybe not, but definitely worth keeping an eye on.
You know what’s weird? Kyoto Animation has not done a TV series in a year, the last one being Ms. Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid in the Winter 2017 season. Consider that one more thing to add to hype machine around their stunning Violet Evergarden, which headlines second part of our Winter 2018 preview guide. The rest of Part 2 is a bit of a mixed bag, but there seems to be a few other shows worth checking out. What’s everyone else got their on eye on?
We just barely finished recapping 2017 but new anime starts TOMORROW, so there is no rest for us here at The GLORIO Blog. Part 1 of our Winter guide is headlined by the return of classic magical girl series Cardcaptor Sakura and… a whole lot of shows with random, extremely thin premises. So if you’re interested in things like camping, ramen, Sanrio, or babysitting, we’ve got you covered.
Unfortunately the third part of our preview guide features all three of my nominees for the potential worst shows of the season. On the bright side, we have the TV series debut of the popular Ancient Magus Bride, as well as two good returning shows in Blood Blockade Battlefront and March Come In Like a Lion. Check it out, and let us know what you’re watching.
You could argue the return of Kino’s Journey is the most notable series in Part 2 of our season guide, but there’s also a lot of returning Glorio cult favorites we’re more inclined to be excited about. I mean, singing the praises of shows like Garo, Classicaloid, and Time Bokan is why you love us, right?
The fall season is full of sequels both new and old, as well as a LOT of idol shows. Part 1 of our guide is headlined by the return of 2015’s smash hit Mr. Osomatsu and… well not much else, at least at first glance.
Saving the worst for last.
