Jel, Gee, and Marlin take a look at the upcoming shows for the winter season, including a new show that may be a successor to the classic space opera series we can’t shut up about, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
And so another GLORIO year comes to a close with only one thing left to do: reveal our picks for the ten best anime series of the year, or in our case eleven since it seems the only flaw in our system is getting ties at #10. If this is your first time joining us,…
2016 is already over? Crazy! What a shitshow huh? 2016 was a solid year for anime (if not for literally anything else) and my awards are my chance to give a shoutout to their various accomplishments and qualities. Some of these awards are old standards, others are just my gut reactions to things I liked in 2016. Whatever, let’s go!

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.
With the season more than halfway over, it’s time to once again dig into our favorite songs from shows that have been airing for the past few months. Said lineup includes an anime by Yuzuru Tachikawa, the new prodigy of opening sequences, so expect the Mob Psycho 100 to show up a lot on this list. Otherwise, there are still cooking classes, fighting dreamers, and the smoldering depths of hell. Don’t bother counting to 99, and dive right in!
