A Very GLORIO 2017: Gee’s Arbitrary Hot Takes

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.

The Catch-Up: Winter 2017

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…

A Very GLORIO 2016: Gee’s Hot Takes of Excellence

2016 is already over? Crazy!

The Catch-Up: Fall 2016

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.
