Jel, Iro, Marlin, and Gee aka Team GLORIO USA share their final thoughts on the Winter season. We talk about our favorite (or not so favorite) shows, discuss if Netflix is bad for anime, and Jel and Iro continue to battle over segues.
Zigg joins the usual lineup of Jel, Iro, and Gee as we catch up on Mr. Osomatsu and it’s stellar episode 18, Garo – Vanishing Line’s penchant for bullet punching, Violet Evergarden’s big change in episode 5, and of course our favorite dumpster fire, Darling in the FranXX.
What’s this? A podcast?!? The GLORIO Chat has returned after a ridiculously long hiatus. In this episode, join Jel, Iro, and Gee as they complain about robots (or lack thereof) in two of the season’s biggest shows: Violet Evergarden and Darling In the Franxx.
Still recovering from her injuries during the war, Violet is taken in by a former commanding officer who gives her a job working at his delivery business. It’s there she meets the Auto Memory Dolls, women who dictate letters for those who can’t write.
You know what’s weird? Kyoto Animation has not done a TV series in a year, the last one being Ms. Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid in the Winter 2017 season. Consider that one more thing to add to hype machine around their stunning Violet Evergarden, which headlines second part of our Winter 2018 preview guide. The rest of Part 2 is a bit of a mixed bag, but there seems to be a few other shows worth checking out. What’s everyone else got their on eye on?
