Did your favorite shows make the cut? What did we choose for #1 and why is it Eromanga-sensei? Read on!
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!
As is our custom, the GLORIO crew will be posting a variety of retrospectives on anime, music, drama, and whatever else we want to talk about that happened in 2017. As is also our custom, I’ll be kicking things off with my favorite anime moments of the year.
I, your brave Marlin am here to give Jel a break(mostly) as he prepares for our year’s end festivities. Meanwhile, we give a “Ganbare, Pine Jam!” as Just Because! gets into production issues again, Hina continues to shine in March Comes In Like a Lion, and Anime-Gataris goes full Samurai Flamenco.
A lot of confrontations this week as Anime-Gataris gets weird, Osomatsu isn’t weird enough, and Bed Bath and Blood Blockade Battlefront and Beyond tackles… the challenges of being a working parent??? Also, March Comes In Like a Lion is still good. Read on!
A bit of a condensed Roundup this week as we rapidly approach the end of the season and prepare for our annual year end posts. But before we get to A Very GLORIO 2017, there’s still a lot of good anime going on. Check it out.
HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? It’s the totally young and hip Jel here bringing you the latest anime hot takes and not fumbling to make a reference to Iyami doing his best Steve Buscemi impersonation… ANYWAY, anime was good this week, enjoy The Roundup.
If you live in the US, chances are at some point today you’ll be super tired after stuffing your face with food and looking for a way to get out of talking to your family. Sounds like a good time to join the Roundup and talk about anime instead! Even better, there’s some really good episodes this week including what’s for my money the best episode of Osomatsu season 2 yet. So shake off that food coma and get in here.
We’re already halfway through the season and on top of that, we’re dangerously close to the end of the year. That means Best of 2017 talk is coming soon! I don’t know if any of our Roundup shows will take Best Show of the year, but I know the conspicuously absent Classicaloid will definitely not. Anyone want to offer their preliminary picks?
It’s one of longest Roundups yet as Gee catches up with two weeks worth of Kino’s Journey and Marlin makes a surprise appearance. Most notably though, March Comes In Like a Lion delivers one of its best episodes and reminds us why I had it as an anime of the year contender. More of that please.
I feel like this ship is slowly sinking as many of our Roundup shows continue to be slightly disappointing. Not bad mind you, but flawed enough to dampen our fun. I mean, how else do you explain Classicaloid employing talking dogs and me not really enjoying it? At least Blood Blockade Battlefront is in top form and I think Anime-gataris has finally won me over, and it seems Just Because is doing well enough to join us this week. What’s everyone else think of the season so far?
Some of our returning shows are starting to lose their luster, but don’t worry, there’s still a lot of good anime going on. Old reliable favorites like Mr. Osomatsu and Blood Blockade Battlefront are holding it down, but I’m not entirely sure why Aqua is still making himself watch Love Live! Sunshine!!.
Pretend we’re still living in better times as we welcome back Mr. Osomatsu, Classicaloid, Love Live! Sunshine!!, March Comes In Like a Lion, Blood Blockade Battlefront and technically, Kino’s Journey. Oh, and I guess we have Roundup newcomers The Ancient Magus Bride and Anime-Gataris.
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.
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 we have some cute boys rapidly followed by a complete breakdown of the laws of physics.
And so another GLORIO year comes to a close and we’ve reached the moment everyone has been waiting for: our picks the best shows of 2015.
Hi, I’m Artemis McBishiehots. You may remember me from such high quality articles as All Your Honies, and it’s a pleasure – nay, a privilege – to be handing out the awards tonight for the most memorable males who graced the screen in 2015. What, you thought all my dreams would wither like dried-up flowers…
Jel kicks off our annual year end tradition of recapping our highlights (and sometimes lowlights) of the year by sharing a few of his favorite moments of 2016.
