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.
After Nine’s announcement, Twelve and Lisa anxiously wait for the atomic bomb to explode, while the police desperately try to evacuate the city. However, Shibazaki is doubtful whether Nine would actually try to kill anyone.
Summer is generally the least interesting period of the year in the world of music, yet I must say I was pleasantly surprised at the sheer amount of enjoyable anime songs this season. I suppose the guy running many a voice actress’s lackluster soprano through Protools deserves a break as well. In any case, it’s time to select the best of the best as the season comes to its end.
Nine turns himself in to the police, but Twelve doesn’t know how to face him after what he did to save Lisa. Meanwhile, Shibazaki confronts the brain behind the Athena project.

Nine and Twelve plant a bomb on the subway, but soon come to realize that the police won’t be able to find it in time to evacuate. Unwilling to become mass murderers, they rush to take down the bomb themselves, but someone is getting in their way.
The police keep grasping at straws while Shibazaki heads to Aomori to gather more clues. Nine prepares another riddle, but starts to clash with Twelve over whether they should take in the runaway Lisa.
Shibazaki is put in charge of the investigation as Nine and Twelve reveal a new riddle to the world. Meanwhile, Lisa tries to run away from home.
As Lisa struggles to cope with her new situation and the police struggle to trace the bombers, Nine and Twelve plot their next attack
Two mysterious boys known only as ‘Nine’ and ‘Twelve’ start attending a Tokyo high school, but are secretly plotting a large scale terrorist attack.
Part 2 of our Summer 2014 guide is headlined the provocative Terror in Resonance, one of the most bizarre premises ever with Railway Wars, and a few returning series like Persona 4 The Golden Animation… wait, that’s a remake? Already? Throw in a few MORE pretty boys (this time dressed as girls) and the Summertime fun continues.
