We add a few more Winter 2023 shows, say some parting words for NieR:Automata ver. 1.1a as it goes on hiatus, and dive back into our complicated feelings toward Trigun Stampede.
Our Top 10 list, now in podcast form.
Our ten favorite anime (and anime adjacent) series from the past year, 2022 edition.
In his annual musing on the year past, Zigg talks about 2022 being dominated by high-profile sequels and adaptations, and why that’s not necessarily a bad thing.
This is it, folks. I have officially hit rock bottom. I’m going to be boring. I’m going to give you my five favourite shows of the year, and my thoughts on them, and that’s it. So put on your beige shirt and produce some kind of monotonous grunt to express your excitement in a respectable fashion. Here are — deep sigh — the shows of 2022 I want to shout ou— err, I mean, highlight. Boringly.
Chainsaw Man (the anime) is bad! Bocchi the Rock is good! Gundam Aerial is actually…. These shocking revelations and more in this episode of The GLORIO Chat.

The agency is headed by wannabe hard-boiled detective Shotaro Hidari, and his mysterious partner Philip. Together, they are the world’s first two-in-one Kamen Rider.
We catch up on Kamen Rider and Digimon, talk about all the shows putting the “romance” in romantic comedy, and declare Birdie Wing the greatest television show of all time.
We give our first impressions of Elden Ring, wrap up The Orbital Children and Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure: Stone Ocean (for now), and discuss potential controversy with Ranking of Kings.
We hit a wide variety of topics including the Lucifer and The Biscuit Hammer anime announcement, the latest in Saturday morning kids’ shows, and some backlog we’re finally catching up on. Oh, and I guess some currently airing anime too.
