2017, despite being something of a garbage fire of a year, ended up being pretty good for anime. Between some original standouts, old franchises returning to form, and some excellent adaptations, anime is as fresh as it’s ever been, even in the face of some truly offensive offerings. As my life gets busier, I find I end up watching less than I’d like, but nonetheless, here’s my arbitrary list of awards that give me an excuse to talk about some of that anime.
It’s that time of year again, and Iro’s resurrecting his motley collection of arbitrary-awards-that-really-just-started-as-jokes-but-I-guess-it’s-tradition-now. Who wins the year’s Yamato 2199 award, Zeppeli award, or Love Lab award? Read ahead to find out!
What would you do if you were a film executive with way too much money? Jel, Iro, Aqua, Gee, Euri, and Artemis plan out their dream anime Hollywood adaptation.
The Winter season sure looks bad but there is still plenty to watch with more episodes of Classicaloid, March Comes In Like a Lion, KONOSUBA, and Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu on the way. There’s also more Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron Blooded Orphans so make of that what you will…
2016 is already over? Crazy! What a shitshow huh? 2016 was a solid year for anime (if not for literally anything else) and my awards are my chance to give a shoutout to their various accomplishments and qualities. Some of these awards are old standards, others are just my gut reactions to things I liked in 2016. Whatever, let’s go!
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing all-seeing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard-earned cash on. This week, after a few weeks off for ANIMEPOCALYPSE we return with a truly stacked edition.
After the Wrap-Up and the Roundup, it’s time for the Catch-Up! Because it’s a bit silly to write a ‘first look’ post on shows that aren’t technically new, the Catch-Up gathers our brief impressions on new seasons of existing shows and reminds readers what we thought about their earlier installments. The Fall season is bringing us new episodes of Sound! Euphonium, Natsume’s Book of Friends, Ajin, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans and Glorio Blog favourite BBK/BRNK. What’s remained the same and what’s new or different? We’re here to help you find out.

I made an angry list last year, so this time I figured I’d go with a more long-form retrospective that hopefully didn’t end up quite as acerbic, but, well… read ahead.
