To fill in a gaping hole in his credibility as an anime lover, Aqua takes a look at the films that cemented the legacy of Hayao Miyazaki and Isao Takehata’s legendary Studio Ghibli.
This week, he checks out Miyazaki’s humble beginnings chronicling a legendary gentleman thief’s career switch into dashing heroics.
We cap off a Very GLORIO 2018 by discussing our top 10 anime of the year, as well as a few honorable mentions that just missed the cut.
Another GLORIO year comes to a close and we recommend ringing in 2019 in the best way possible – no, not by partying with friends and family, I mean talking about anime!
If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
Jel, Gee, Marlin, and Zigg rave about Lupin III Part 5 and Asobi Asobase while putting big asterisks on everything else. Also: bonus Kamen Rider talk.
With all of our other podcast regulars busy this week. the remnants of Team GLORIO USA aka Jel, Gee, and Marlin hold down the fort and catch up on the Summer 2018 anime season.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Aqua go way overtime as we reluctantly say BYE BYE to the very solid Spring 2018 anime season.
Team GLORIO USA hands out mid-term grades to all the shows we’re watching, determining if each show is better, worse, or the same since the last time we discussed them. Also, we pay tribute to the classic Pokémon character Nurse Jenny.
This episode is dedicated in loving memory to the Golden Kamuy anime.
Lupin and friends stole from the wrong evil tech conglomerate, and now their faces are all over the Internet! But even the power of social media is no match for the master thief, Lupin III!
The Spring 2018 anime season is rapidly approaching, so we do the responsible thing and talk about some of the notable shows worth keeping an eye on. Join us as Iro displays his mastery of segues, Gee sells us on Golden Kamuy, and Zigg reveals he loves punching dogs.
We’re halfway through the Fall season, somewhat, maybe, so we’ve heard the theme songs of this quarter’s anime enough to decide which one we like the most.
The fourth anime series in the franchise is set in Italy and Marino, and follows titular thief Lupin III (now clad in a blue coat) and the rest of the gang as they continue their adventures in crime.
The final part of our guide goes in strong on the nostalgia with new Digimon and Lupin III series, plus we get Trigger’s latest attempt to SAVE ANIME with Ninja Slayer. Meanwhile, I go against my better judgement and remain cautiously optimistic about Punchline and Yamda-kun and the 7 Witches, two comedies that probably won’t be winning any Anime of the Year awards. Maybe I’m just getting worn down by all this new anime? Take a look and decide for yourself.
