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.

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.
