To wrap up our coverage of the GLORIO decade, Zigg takes a look at ten unforgettable moments from ten different shows across ten years.
While the GLORIO blog has technically only existed since 2012, we are still declaring the 2010’s “The GLORIO Decade”. And so as we move into the 2020’s, we’re taking a look back at just how GLORIO the decade was. First up: Jel’s favorite anime of the 2010’s
Did your favorite shows make the cut? What did we choose for #1 and why is it Eromanga-sensei? Read on!
In his annual musing, Zigg talks about how he was surprised (in both good and bad ways) by many of the shows which came out this year.
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.
The GLORIO crew tried to finish Made in Abyss but instead it finished them
After Riko is badly poisoned by one of the creatures in the Fourth Layer, Reg is forced to rely on the mysterious Nanachi for help, and in doing so he finds out about the tragedy which drives her.
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.
Bad news! Summer is over! Good news! That means we’ll be telling you about our favourite anime songs of the season again! Scant consolation, probably, but hey, since when is that our job? Regardless, we have another diverse lineup for you, with gratuitous sex jazz, spy prog, minimal hip-house and a dash of fairy pop. All of these are totally real genres. Look them up.
Reg and Riko confront the mysterious Ozen the Immovable, who reveals many secrets about her role in Riko’s past. From there, they travel down through the Third Layer, an endless cliff full of dangerous predators.
Reg and Riko begin their journey by heading towards the bottom of the Second Layer, where an old outpost awaits them
A message comes back from the deepest part of the Abyss from Riko’s mother. Believing she’s still alive, Riko prepares to depart the orphanage accompanied by Reg
Riko is an orphaned young girl who makes her keep mining the mysterious Abyss at the heart of her hometown. One day she’s rescued by a mysterious robotic boy and takes him home to find out exactly what he is.
Slightly better than Part 1? Maybe???
