The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 10

I, your brave Marlin am here to give Jel a break(mostly) as he prepares for our year’s end festivities. Meanwhile, we give a “Ganbare, Pine Jam!” as Just Because! gets into production issues again, Hina continues to shine in March Comes In Like a Lion, and Anime-Gataris goes full Samurai Flamenco.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 9

A lot of confrontations this week as Anime-Gataris gets weird, Osomatsu isn’t weird enough, and Bed Bath and Blood Blockade Battlefront and Beyond tackles… the challenges of being a working parent??? Also, March Comes In Like a Lion is still good. Read on!

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 7

HOW DO YOU DO, FELLOW KIDS? It’s the totally young and hip Jel here bringing you the latest anime hot takes and not fumbling to make a reference to Iyami doing his best Steve Buscemi impersonation… ANYWAY, anime was good this week, enjoy The Roundup.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 6

If you live in the US, chances are at some point today you’ll be super tired after stuffing your face with food and looking for a way to get out of talking to your family. Sounds like a good time to join the Roundup and talk about anime instead! Even better, there’s some really good episodes this week including what’s for my money the best episode of Osomatsu season 2 yet. So shake off that food coma and get in here.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 5

We’re already halfway through the season and on top of that, we’re dangerously close to the end of the year. That means Best of 2017 talk is coming soon! I don’t know if any of our Roundup shows will take Best Show of the year, but I know the conspicuously absent Classicaloid will definitely not. Anyone want to offer their preliminary picks?

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 4

It’s one of longest Roundups yet as Gee catches up with two weeks worth of Kino’s Journey and Marlin makes a surprise appearance. Most notably though, March Comes In Like a Lion delivers one of its best episodes and reminds us why I had it as an anime of the year contender. More of that please.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 3

I feel like this ship is slowly sinking as many of our Roundup shows continue to be slightly disappointing. Not bad mind you, but flawed enough to dampen our fun. I mean, how else do you explain Classicaloid employing talking dogs and me not really enjoying it? At least Blood Blockade Battlefront is in top form and I think Anime-gataris has finally won me over, and it seems Just Because is doing well enough to join us this week. What’s everyone else think of the season so far?

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 2

Some of our returning shows are starting to lose their luster, but don’t worry, there’s still a lot of good anime going on. Old reliable favorites like Mr. Osomatsu and Blood Blockade Battlefront are holding it down, but I’m not entirely sure why Aqua is still making himself watch Love Live! Sunshine!!.

The Roundup: Fall 2017 Volume 1

Pretend we’re still living in better times as we welcome back Mr. Osomatsu, Classicaloid, Love Live! Sunshine!!, March Comes In Like a Lion, Blood Blockade Battlefront and technically, Kino’s Journey. Oh, and I guess we have Roundup newcomers The Ancient Magus Bride and Anime-Gataris. 

The Catch-Up: Fall 2017

After The Wrap-Up and The Roundup, it’s time for The Catch-Up! Because it’s a bit silly to write a ‘first look’ post on shows that aren’t technically new, The Catch-Up gathers our brief impressions on new seasons of returning shows and reminds readers what we thought about their earlier installments. Join us as we answer such important questions as “Will Blood Blockade Battlefront still be good without Rie Matsumoto?”, “Will ClassicaLoid still be good without the great Bach-sama?” and most importantly, “Will the Glorio Blog still be good without Aqua’s weekly struggle with Love Live Sunshine!!?” We reserve the right to change our answer to any of these at any time.

A Very GLORIO 2016: Jel’s Best Anime Moments of the Year

2016 was bad. Watching the world fall apart has made something as silly as writing about cartoons difficult to focus on at times. Still, it’s good to have a way to escape and anime has been good for that. In fact, I’d say this is the best overall year of anime we’ve had since 2011. I certainly had fun compiling my annual list of favorite moments and it was hard to narrow down to ten… so I decided not to. Hey, it’s my list and I will do what I want. So enjoy the list and stay tuned for the rest of the week as the rest of the crew shares their highlights from this year.
