The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 5

It’s been a rough week, and in these difficult times writing about cartoons feels more frivolous than usual. Perhaps more than ever though, I’m personally enjoying the comfort and brief escapism of some good anime. So take a minute to relax and forget about all the horrible things going on in the world for just a moment. I’ll be happy if we can at least offer that much.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 4

Here at the Glorio Blog we always strive to deliver QUALITY anime coverage, regardless of our production schedule. It helps when there’s a lot of good shows to talk about of course, and I’m probably going to sound like a broken record here but wow this season is good. Yuri and March deliver as always, Girlish Number and ClassicaLoid are turning out pretty good, and somehow Aqua is still watching (and enjoying?) Kiss Him, Not Me.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 3

The Roundup keeps on truckin’ with our usual batch of animes. Artemis is back but a few shows find themselves flirting with the chopping block, if not being cut altogether. You’ll have to read on to find out more, but I’ll tell you now I would probably never cut a show in which someone can say “Beethoven-senpai” unironically.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 1

What’s this, anime is good again?!? This week we launch a rock solid lineup for the Fall 2016 Roundup with a couple of other shows joining us next week. Personally I’m already declaring Yuri!! On ICE and March Comes In Like a Lion as anime of the year contenders, we also have delightfully fun shows like ClassicaLoid, Time Bokan 24, and Poco’s Udon World, and for some reason Aqua is still watching Kiss Him, Not Me and Izetta: The Last Witch.

First Look: Poco’s Udon World

After his father’s passing, Souta returns to the small town where he grew up to clear out his parents’ former home and udon restaurant. While in the restaurant he finds a peculiar (and hungry) young boy who immediately grows attached to him.

The GLORIO Fall 2016 Anime Guide – Part 3

We’ve saved the best for last as the third part of our guide seems to have the most interesting looking shows. I’ve got my eye on wacky musical comedy Classicaloid as it seems to fit my personal tastes rather well, but other shows to watch like new Shaft joint March Comes in Like a Lion and MAPPA’s latest, Yuri!!! On ICE, top off a list that seems to have a lot less duds than the previous two.
