The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 7

A bit of an abbreviated Roundup this week as Marlin is out and there’s no new episode of Atom: The Beginning for better or worse. Fortunately my two favorite shows, Sakura Quest and Virgin Soul, deliver the goods we’ve been waiting for. Bahamut fans, you already know what I mean.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Spring 2017

We’re somewhere vaguely halfway into the Spring season again, so here we are again to tell you which opening sequences and ending themes we didn’t skip after the first episode this time around! This time around, hamburgers, holiday pictures and HEAVY METAL.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 6

We’re into the second half of the spring season and not a lot has changed. Our favorite shows continue to tread water to the point where even the already snail paced Tsukigakirei throws in a completely unwarranted recap episode. We’ll keep holding on to hope that things will pick up eventually though, and remember, it could always be worse…

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 5

Can you believe the season is already half over? It sure has gone by quickly, and maybe that’s not a bad thing as I feel like many of the Roundup shows continue to underperform. I’ve nearly given up on Atom: The Beginning but I’m sure Sakura Quest, Bahamut, and Little Witch Academia will be in top form eventually. And hey, at least Tsukigakirei didn’t make me rage this week!

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 4

We’re nearing the mid point of the season and even the best shows like Sakura Quest and Rage of Bahamut seem to be spinning their wheels a bit. I’m not too concerned but I do wish they’d get on with it already. At least Nina is providing me with an endless supply of faces to use for The Roundup header images.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 3

It seems #HATEWATCH is catching on as Re:Creators was bad enough for Iro to handle separately this week (stay tuned) and I’m quickly losing interest in Atom: The Beginning’s glacial pacing and flat writing. Marlin and I also almost turned on our favorite sleeper hit Tsukigakirei, but fortunately the rest of the Roundup is good enough to keep us motivated.

The Roundup: Spring 2017 Volume 2

The slow but potentially good Atom: The Beginning joins the Roundup along with season 2 of The Eccentric Family, which has already proven its quality. Most everything else passes the three episode test save for Re:Creators, which Iro and I are still watching for some reason.

The GLORIO Spring 2017 Anime Guide – Part 3

Part 3 features the new series by Oreimo’s Tsukasa Fushimi, Eromanga Sensei, and so by default is the worst part of the preview guide. Fortunately it also features the return The Eccentric Family, which I must admit has been sitting at the top of my backlog for quite some time. There’s also an unusually high amount shows coming back this season that we we wouldn’t normally cover, so let us know if we are missing out on anything good.

The 9th Day of GLORIO: Top 10 Anime of 2013

If you’re a regular reader or you’ve been following our 9 Days of Glorio coverage, it’s pretty clear our writers have a wide range of opinions and perspectives – so wide, in fact, that despite using a mathematically sound voting system for our top 10 anime we somehow ended up with 11 entries! Nevertheless, our…

The Wrap-Up: Summer 2013

If you go around 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…

The Eccentric Family Episode 7

The boys force the Professor to go take a bath. When most anime would use this kind of set-up for sexy shenanigans, it’s played straight until Kinkaku and Ginkaku come in to deal a heavy truth to the Shimogamo boys.

The Eccentric Family Episode 6

We learn a bit more about the circumstances surrounding Souichiro’s death at the hands of the Friday Fellows. Throughout the episode, Yasaburo constantly mentions how much Benten has changed since she joined the infamous club.
