We’ve been talking about toys for a LONG time here at GLORIO. All Your Monies is pretty much the only feature that’s run continuously (er, more or less) since the blog’s inception and as a result we’ve seen a lot of stuff come and go. Some of the has been great, fabulously cute, beautiful, well-crafted toys that would please adults and kids alike. That’s not what we’re here to talk about. Instead, let’s look back on some of the abominations we’ve had to endure in half a decade of moulded plastic. Warning, NSFW!
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Aqua (and Iro)) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This week there’s a strong new contender for ‘worst thing ever featured in one of these columns’. NSFW obviously.
This week we’ve dug up a nice slew of expensive and exclusive figures all ready and willing to raid your wallet.
It’s time to ARGUE ABOUT CARTOONS as we unveil the Glorio Blog’s Top 10 shows of 2014.
Welcome to “A Very GLORIO 2014″, our look back at the best of the past year. We’ll be featuring a different post from each of our authors everyday leading up to our top 10 shows of the year. The title says it all for today’s post as colons tackles some of the deep and meaningful ways certain anime characters were introduced this year.
It’s the end of yet another anime season, so amidst all the final impressions, we also try to choose our favourite anime theme songs of the season. This proved rather exceptionally hard this season, as not one, but two songs were picked by two different people. I had no idea we had such unanimous taste over here. Then again, maybe we just didn’t watch enough anime this season, and that should probably tell you something.
Have you ever imagined a world where everything is a game? What would it look like? I know when I was younger I would imagine a world where simply being good at games was the most important thing you could be. No Game No Life takes that question and brings that fantasy to life.
We bid farewell to Nananananana’s Buried Treasure, Riddle Story of Devil The Devil’s Riddle, and Mahouka, even though it’s not ending.
Mixed results as we approach the end of the season. The Devil’s Riddle and Brynhildr race to possible anime original finishes while Date A Live decides to save it for the movie.
Riddle Story of Devil taps into one of my worst fears, several shows get kinda dark for their final arcs, and Marlin totally does not take the week off.
Riddle Story of Devil skips the gay dads, If Her Flag Breaks increases its figure marketing opportunities, and No Game No Life finally gets a header image!
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Aquagaze) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This week it’s a new high watermark in the anime hair arms race.
We bid farewell to the BEST SHOW OF THE SEASON and If Her Flag Breaks proves nothing says gag comedy like going to an alternate universe where all your friends are dead.
The Devil’s Riddle almost jumps the shark, Date a Live and Chaika get beat with the Ugly Stick, and even though Ping Pong has gone on to a better place Nananananana has our back when it comes to animated table tennis action.
Ping Pong stirs the souls of Gee and Marlin, Iro reminds us that we are still watching The World Is Still Beautiful, and Lifesong actually drops a show!
Marlin buries Nanananana, Lifesong takes a break from theoretical politics to rave about Black Bullet and No Game No Life, and I remind everyone Seki-kun x Kana Hanazawa is this season’s OTP.
Ping Pong delivers the coolest OP of the season, Lifesong geeks out over No Game No Life and not because of the Jojo references, and we have our first official drop of the season. WHAT COULD IT BE???
In this week’s episode: Lifesong and Marlin both refuse to drop anything as we unleash our full slate of shows. A certain table tennis anime continues to ping our pong (that sounds disgusting), Nananananana’s Buried Treasure goes for the shotgun blast of anime girl fetishes, and if you look closely you just might find a Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure joke.
Our story follows two siblings who are so good at gaming they have become an urban legend. They receive an invitation from the god of another world and unwittingly accept. They soon find themselves trapped in a world where everything is decided by playing games. Is this heaven or hell for our sibling pair? Will they even want to go home?
Part 1 of our guide is highlighted the return of Jojo’s Bizarre Adventure, the pretty new Bones project, Captain Earth, and an unusually high amount of light novel adaptations.
