In this week’s installment… The New Year may be already upon us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take one last look at the end of this season. In this volume we have two surprise contributors, one welcome and one… well let’s just say they should have worked on it more.
This week we are a little late thanks to Wonfes so I made sure to throw in tons of good stuff for you all to empty your wallets on.
We say goodbye to the last stragglers of Summer as this season of the Roundup comes to an end. Glasslip leaves Marlin wanting, Aqua is pleasantly surprised by Barakamon, and I’m just sad I have no Sabagebu! header for the final post.
The season is almost over and many of our Roundup shows are coming to an end. We say goodbye to favorites like Sabagebu! and HaNaYaMaTa, and a considerably less fond “see you later” to Aldnoah.Zero.
In this week’s installment… Our shows hold steady as the end of the season rapidly approaches. The comedies stay funny and sweet and Aqua still hates Aldnoah.Zero, so business as usual. The Roundup is a weekly guide to all the “other” shows we’re watching this season. Check out our full, weekly coverage of: Blue Spring Ride – Hunter…
Lifesong and Timmy are off cavorting at Nan Desu Kan but the rest of the crew picks up the slack. Argevollen gets practical, HaNaYaMaTa keeps its pants on for the hot springs episode, and Sabagebu continues its glorious streak of 80’s action movie references.
Aldnoah.Zero drags our writers down from their usual disappointment to shame. Fortunately the rest of this season’s comedies hold strong, even with Barakamon taking the week off.
Lifesong begins his mid season cuts, Argvollen and Rail Wars surprise Gee and Timmy respectively, and I try to convince myself that this week’s Sabagebu! is scathing social commentary.
Glasslip and Argevollen heat up plot wise and fan service-wise respectively while Sabagebu proves it’s both funny AND environmentally conscious. Who knew?
We hit the midpoint of the season and the entire crop of great comedies are still going strong. Locodol finally ends Sabagebu’s header image streak and no matter how frustrated he gets, Gee is still watching Argevollen and Aldnoah.Zero.
Casual murder continues to dominate this season as Akame ga kill! throws up death flags everywhere, Sabagebu! loses a few good men to some deadly toilet humor, and Locodol kills off some… chocolate tanukis?
Battle lines are drawn again over Aldnoah.Zero, Rail Wars! has even less trains and more boobs than usual, and Sabagebu! manages to make “may the force be with you” jokes funny again.
Our weekly coverage fills up as we (or should I say Lifesong) add a few new shows. Opinions continue to be split on Aldnoah.Zero but the flurry of oddly named upstart comedies stay unanimously entertaining.
Our first batch of Summer shows hit the Roundup with several Slice of Life surprises and mecha cliché disappointments. Throw in some extreme(ly censored) violence and it’s going to be a fun summer!
In an effort to kickstart the local economy, a small town businessman teams up his niece with Mugi from K-ON! to form a “locodol” (local idol) group.
Summer 2014 marks the second anniversary of the Glorio Blog (hooray for us), and we’ve got some heavy hitters kicking off our ninth season of anime coverage. Sailor Moon, the return of Sword Art Online, and a new anime original from Gen Urobuchi headline part 1 of our guide.
