It sure has been an interesting decade for anime. I don’t just mean in terms of new trends or the anime industry in general (although I’m sure the same could be said for these aspects as well), but rather in terms of my personal anime viewing experience. Having spent over half the decade living in…
So apparently we forgot to do a Wrap-up for the Fall season of 2018? You folks still care about this, right?
Jel, Gee, and Marlin take a look at the upcoming shows for the winter season, including a new show that may be a successor to the classic space opera series we can’t shut up about, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.
Iro returns once again with a bag full of arbitrary and somewhat questionable awards.
While testing a new deep dive interface, Kirito enters “Underworld”, a new virtual world that may be inspired by Alice in Wonderland. The new system provides the most realistic experience yet, but the users have no memory of the world once they wake up.
Following hot on the trail of our season preview podcast, Aqua, Iro, Zigg and Gee have an in-depth look at the upcoming anime season. In this first part, we give our two cents on, amongst others, the spiritual successor to Tiger & Bunny, a new project by the creator of the Zero Escape games and a clash for the ages between the two biggest light novel adaptations in anime history.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Zigg attempt to preview the notable shows of the Fall 2018 season and in the process discover Luigi has been been protecting us this entire time. RIP.
Jel, Iro, Gee, and Aqua go way overtime as we reluctantly say BYE BYE to the very solid Spring 2018 anime season.
Team GLORIO USA hands out mid-term grades to all the shows we’re watching, determining if each show is better, worse, or the same since the last time we discussed them. Also, we pay tribute to the classic Pokémon character Nurse Jenny.
This episode is dedicated in loving memory to the Golden Kamuy anime.
In the world of Gun Gale Online, a college student insecure about her height plays as a tiny girl dressed in all pink. She aims to join the “Squad Jam”, a battle-royale style tournament.
Part 2 of our guide features Megalo Box, the robot enhanced boxing tribute to Ashita no Joe, although I’m probably more interested in Hinamatsuri, the magical girlfriend Yakuza comedy (not to be confused with this season’s magical girl Yakuza comedy). Oh, and I guess Persona 5, Sword Art Online, and Cutie Honey, you may have also heard of those.
The Spring 2018 anime season is rapidly approaching, so we do the responsible thing and talk about some of the notable shows worth keeping an eye on. Join us as Iro displays his mastery of segues, Gee sells us on Golden Kamuy, and Zigg reveals he loves punching dogs.
We’ve been talking about toys for a LONG time here at GLORIO. All Your Monies is pretty much the only feature that’s run continuously (er, more or less) since the blog’s inception and as a result we’ve seen a lot of stuff come and go. Some of the has been great, fabulously cute, beautiful, well-crafted toys that would please adults and kids alike. That’s not what we’re here to talk about. Instead, let’s look back on some of the abominations we’ve had to endure in half a decade of moulded plastic. Warning, NSFW!
On a fateful day in July 2012, we created our first post. Shoujo Hitler was bad, but much worse was our first impressions of the anime adaptation of Kingdom that went up shortly thereafter. It’s five years later and anime is still bad, but somehow someway we are still here, carrying out our solemn duty to warn…
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This time we have six same faces
I made an angry list last year, so this time I figured I’d go with a more long-form retrospective that hopefully didn’t end up quite as acerbic, but, well… read ahead.
Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Aqua (and Iro)) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard earned cash on. This week there’s a strong new contender for ‘worst thing ever featured in one of these columns’. NSFW obviously.

This week we’ve got girls girls girls! Also boys. And rabbits, snakes, and hawks.
Jel, Iro, and Marlin discuss the origins of their refined Anime palates, debate if watching anime is “cool”, and recommend shows for any brave soul attempting to get into anime in 2015.
