We go in-depth on our top ten anime of 2021, with a few honorable mentions.
2021 had a lot of good anime. What shows made the top 10? What made #1? Has our running gag of choosing an ironic header image for this post gone too far? Read on to get at least two of these questions answered.
As the year draws to a close, Aqua provides an overview of the most memorable and interesting characters he got to meet during these four seasons of anime and tokusatsu.
Zigg talks about how 2021 saw a resurgence in high quality, creator creator-driven anime, and how that resulted in the strongest slate of shows in quite some time.
Not like this. Please, not like this.
It’s alive! It’s aliiiiive! In celebration of what has to be one of the greatest anime seasons in recorded history, we at The Glorio Blog were reminded of the fact that we are, apparently, a blog, and therefore expected to deliver written content. Hence, the highly anticipated (?) return of our most tried and truest feature — The Wrap-Up.
Ai comes face to face with the last person she was expecting to find in the dream world…herself.
With another season in the books, we discuss the diminishing returns from our favorite (?) shows of the Winter 2021 anime season.
Ai ventures inside the Accas’ house in search of answers. There she meets Ura-Acca, who explains his and Acca’s shared past, and what the two of them have been searching for all along.
Momoe rescues the trans boy Kaoru, and in doing so thinks she’s saved enough people to resurrect Haruka. But something terrible is lying in wait instead…
Neiru unexpectedly invites the other girls over to her house, where they learn the peculiar circumstances of her birth, and also the tragic fate of one of her fellow company members.
It’s Rika’s birthday, and the girls get together to celebrate. But after a heated exchange on the topic of her anonymous father, Rika begins to wonder if the fight is really worth maintaining.
We pay our respects to the 2021 Crunchyroll Anime Awards, Jel catches up with Jujutsu Kaisen, and chat about whatever shows we’re still watching.
Acca and Ur-Acca present the girls with animal companions to help them combat a new enemy form, while Ai has a difficult situation to deal with at home.
We drop a few of our regular shows, Jel talks about the Given movie, and Iro threatens to steal your significant other.
The four girls hang out in the real world and begin to question their mission, while Neiru remembers some of the girls she’s met on her journeys into the dream world.
Ai, Rika, and Neiru meet yet another egg purchaser, the boyish Momoe, who rescues girls from sexual abusers.
A surprising number of shows have survived the first month of the season, and we’re going to talk about them all.
Ai meets two other girls who are also buying Wonder Eggs – the quiet and detached Neiru Aonuma, and Rika Kawai (Like ‘kawaii’ because she’s so cute).
It’s been an incredibly busy time over at GLORIO Towers, what with the new season and also gestures at everything. As a result we haven’t been able to roll out our customary slate of First Loooks, but here instead are some quick bite-sized opinions on everything we’ve been watching.
