Five Years of GLORIO: All Your Monies Down the Drain

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!

All Your Monies: December 9th 2015

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.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2014

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.

No Game No Life Final Thoughts

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.

All Your Monies: June 2nd 2014

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.

The Roundup: Spring 2014 Volume 6

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.

The Roundup: Spring 2014 Volume 2

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.

First Look: No Game, No Life

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?
