The Roundup: Winter 2016 Volume 12

Yes, we did already do our season Wrap Up and yes, new shows are airing, but there are still a few shows left to round up. Fortunately all four remaining series end on a high note, delivering pretty much everything we could have realistically expected for final episodes.

The Roundup: Winter 2016 Volume 9

Our Roundup shows intensify as the end of the season approaches. Join us for the emotional drama and psychological pain that is Ojisan and Marshmallow and Sekko Boys… and probably Rakugo. Also my computer broke last night and I couldn’t do screencaps so enjoy pictures of robots punching robots courtesy of Iro.

The Roundup: Winter 2016 Volume 8

A bit of a hit and miss week with some shows doing better than others, but the good shows were pretty great. Sure we have our subtle, measured use of drama with shows like Snow White and Rakugo, but I’ll take the hilarious vomiting blood reactions of Osomatsu and the marble statue blackmail sex of Sekko Boys any day.

The Roundup: Winter 2016 Volume 3

All of our new Roundup shows have survived the 3 episode test, but will they survive after 4? Rakugo, Dagashi Kashi, and the shorts are holding steady while KONOSUBA, Nurse Witch Komugi R, and Rainbow Days continue to flirt with the chopping block. But hey, we can always count on Osomatsu to be amazing.

The Roundup: Winter 2016 Volume 1

The Winter 2016 Roundup starts off with a bang as we bring in a new block of shows as well as a few returning contenders. Dagashi Kashi, Ojisan and Marshmallow, Showa Genroku Rakugo Shinju, Nurse Witch Komugi R, and Rainbow Days all make their Roundup debut while Snow White with the Red Hair and Durarara return after a season off. Oh, and of course Mr. Osomatsu is still with us, thank the anime gods!

A Very GLORIO 2015: Marlin Thinks Love is Over

Last year I was blessed with some great romance shows that made up for just how few had been released, but this year I have to strain to string together more than two or three shows together where romance was the most appealing factor. Still, there were a few really good things to talk about. Snow White remained captivating and adorable all the way to the break, and Yamada-kun’s heartfelt romance almost made up for it’s runaway train of a final stretch. With all that, I’ll try to stick to my niche as much as I can before going off the deep end once the Ero-Kawaii-tier Awards start flying around.

The Roundup: Summer 2015 Volume 7 – Late Edition

An abbreviated Late Edition this week as Gatchaman Crowds Insight takes an episode off. That makes me very sad. Meanwhile, Durarara reminds us to hate Izaya, Working tries to do a little too much for one episode, Snow White has too many flashbacks, and My Love Story might be sinking my favorite ship. At least Insight will be back next week?
