The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 7

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.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 6

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.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 5

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?

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 4

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.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 3

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?

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 2

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!!.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 1

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.

The GLORIO Summer 2016 Anime Guide – Part 1

Who remembers ye goode aulde days when the summer lineup of anime was a wasteland bigger than the Naruto subreddit after a shipping war? Nowadays, all seasons get their fair and equal share of anime, likely because Aniplex and co. finally realized that nerds never really go out, not even in summer. This leaves the task of culling the prospected…

Jukebox: Reclaiming Idols

Believe it or not, Japan can make other music aside from peppy pop! It has a vibrant underground music scene, which over the years has developed into an influential force to be reckoned with. In Jukebox, we take a look at the versatility of the Japanese music industry — beyond the realm of anime and other geekery. This time, we explore how Japanese pop ‘idols’ have transformed over the years, maybe even for the better. Can idols be saved, or have scandals doomed them to live on as a creatively bankrupt, patriarchic relic?
