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. For today’s installment, Marlin brings back his Love Shack Emporium from last year including the much coveted Ero Kawaii Award.
Yuki’s coldness towards Kaori predictably makes her think he hates her. After spending a day alone with her, Yuki remembers why he wanted to be friends with her in the first place.
Yuki gets curious about the circumstances surrounding Kaori’s memory loss. After convincing Hajime to spill the beans, Kaori happens to hear upon it as well.
Things seem to go back to normal very quickly between Yuki and Kaori, but with her memories wiped, things are still difficult. The gaps in Kaori’s memory become more and more visible. Meanwhile, the newly crowned Teen Douchebag lets on a bit more about Kaori’s past.
Yuki is still the worst student of all time, so everyone gets together once again to study. Well, except for Shogo. That dude is hypercompetent. After Kaori meets the new transfer student, some bullshit happens.
Kaori wants to go to the beach, a plan Hase wholeheartedly endorses. Reluctantly, Shogo helps him coordinate the outing. As they spend more time together, Kaori and Hase start reconsidering the nature of their relationship, but wuss out when they have the perfect chance. We were not pleased.
Kaori has gained some new girlfriends as her social circle slowly widens. A little jealous, Yuki plans to make more time for just the two of them. Later, Yuki worries about losing Kaori over summer break, when they won’t be able to see each other as easily.
Yuki is still struggling with math scores, so Kaori invites him to come over to her place for a study session. It quickly turns into a hangout for everyone, and the gang meets Kaori’s adorable mom. Giving Yuki a message, she sheds some new light on Kaori’s past.
Kaori meets a stoner… I mean fellow forgetful girl. With a persistence that outdoes even Yuki, two soon become close friends.

Kaori and Yuki grow closer together, but their fellow classmates still don’t understand her. Hoping to change that, Yuki brings his friend Shogo along to learn about her true self.
Yuki tries to befriend Kaori after her memories reset. While initially awkward, she opens up to him once again.

Honest Yuki Hase would love to befriend the lonely Kaori Fujimiya, but she keeps pushing him away, saying she can’t make any friends. When he finally gets her to warm up to him, Kaori reveals a most inconvenient truth…
