All Your Monies: July 26th 2017

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 it’s a Nendoroid invasion as they occupy the top four slots. Don’t count out scale figures though, as there are some real beauties fighting back.

All Your Monies: February 24th 2016

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Aqua) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This time we’ve been out for a few weeks, so let’s gather the best of what we missed.

All Your Monies: March 30th 2015

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Marlin) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This week, there are cars, pigs, cats and ships, but none can outshine the glory of dead bodies.

The Half Time Show, Winter 2015

The smell of hot dogs, the noise of conversation and the occasional person dancing past in a shark costume. That’s right, it’s the half time show! The Glorio Rabble have put their heads together to let you know what’s worth your valuable time, in a world where first episodes are high budget and mid-season turns filler if left out in the sun too long. Want something cool to watch? Pick something from near the top, simple as that.

All Your Monies: February 2nd 2015

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This week we have battleships, heroes and otaku masturbation fodder (even more so than normal).

First Look: KanColle

Mysterious alien girls with the powers of military war ships are invading Earth. A fleet of other girls that also have the powers of military war ships are the only ones that can stop them. Fubuki is a new girl/destroyer at the uhhh school academy dorm thing (?) that they live in and they spend a lot of time hanging out and doing nothing.

GLORIO Winter 2015 Anime Guide Part 1

Winter 2015 is bringing us lots of big name sequels, a few intriguing anime originals, and a dumpster fire full of light novel adaptations with awful sounding premises. Part 1 of our guide is headlined by Lily Bear Storm, the latest work of the delightfully insane Kunihiko Ikuhara and, while I’m loathe to admit it, the anime based on the phenomenon that is Kantai Collection.

This week Zigg is out cruising the convention scene so I am doing the honors this week. Naturally I make sure to include something that I know wouldn’t be here otherwise.

The Unfortunate Implications of Kantai Collection

You’ve probably seen them before, whether it’s on social networks, in fanart, as figures on online shops or in the seedier underbellies of the anime fandom. The kanmusu, or “ship daughters”, twee teenage girls dressed like fashionable sailors and armed to the teeth with equally cutesy heavy weaponry, are the heroines and mascots of Kantai Collection, the new cult phenomenon taking the Internet by storm. Yet the context on which Kantai Collection exists, is a rather problematic one.

This week it’s a pretty poor showing after last week’s bumper crop. Also beware as below are SPOILERS for Puella Magi Madoka Magica; Rebellion.
