The GLORIO Decade: The 2010s in Anime Music

Music is as integral to a piece of media as visuals or plot, which is why for as long as The GLORIO Blog has existed, we have done some variety of a feature about our favourite anime songs. With the decade having come to a close, we’re presenting the most memorable tracks of them all right here, with all the pithy commentary from yours truly you’ve come to expect.

The Roundup: Summer 2017 Volume 10

I throw in a few extra paragraphs as we say goodbye to Restaurant to Another World and Sakura Quest, but unfortunately not Virgin Soul. But hey, GAMERS! and Kakegurui are still hanging around and as fun as ever, so we still have one more week with them.

The Roundup: Summer 2017 Volume 9

Can you believe the season is almost over already? I hope it ends before the previously reliably GAMERS! falls completely out of my favor, and I certainly will not be sad to see Virgin Soul go away. Fortunately the rest of the Roundup seems like it will stay good till the very end. Enjoy, I’m off to start writing those Fall preview guides…

The Roundup: Summer 2017 Volume 7

Summer is nearly over and so is the anime season, but our Roundup shows are showing no signs of slowing down. It seems to be business as usual this week including Bahamut which has completely embraced the soap opera-y mess its become. I guess the “Cinderella Step” ending song was supposed to be literal?

The Roundup: Summer 2017 Volume 5

We say welcome (back) to the Ballroom as well as the Quality Trash™ that is Kakegurui after last week’s break, but still no Bahamut this week for better or worse. Meanwhile, Sakura Quest continues to be the best thing going right now.

The Roundup: Summer 2017 Volume 1

With first episodes spanning over three weeks, we’re a bit late firing up the Roundup this season. But hey, we’re here now to talk about Welcome to the Ballroom, Restaurant to Another World, Fastest Finger First, and Kakegurui, plus catchup with Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut: Virgin Soul. Let’s do this!

The Wrap-Up: Spring 2017

If you go about doing a season preview, it is only obvious you also close off on a season review. In The Wrap-Up, all of our contributors get to shine a spotlight on the show they thought to be the very best of the past few weeks, as well as reflect back on the preview to see which…

Five Years of GLORIO: 2014-2015

To commemorate our fifth anniversary, we’re reliving our favorite part of forcing ourselves to watch every anime that ever comes out: the surprises. Just about every season a show or two pops up out of nowhere and turns out to be pretty good, and we wanted to give a shout out to a few you might of missed. In today’s post, we’re taking a look at 2014 and 2015.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 11

It’s the last Roundup of the season and we say goodbye to… not much actually. Sakura Quest and Bahamut are continuing into summer and thanks to some delays Tsukigakirei and Atom: The Beginning will be ending after the start of next season. So… farewell, Little Witch Academia, we’ll see you when you finally get officially released on Netflix.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 9

Sakura Quest and Tsukigakirei are still solid, but Bahamut doesn’t seem to know when to flashback and Atom somehow managed to ruin an episode featuring robots named DEADLY TAURUS and MOHICAN BASSO. Come on anime, step up your game, the season is almost over!

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 8

I’ve been mildly complaining every week about our favorite Roundup shows spinning their wheels but this week delivers the Quality Conent™ we’ve been longing for. It’s been two weeks, I can spoil it: FAVAROOOOOOOO! He just makes everything better. Too bad Atom: The Beginning still sucks even after a week off.
