First Look: www.Working!!

Daisuke Higashida is forced to get a part-time job after his dad’s company goes out of business. With his options limited, he decides to apply at the local Wagnaria, which as a chain, and in a remarkable moment of sensibility in an utterly senseless show, is a totally different restaurant from the original. Here, he meets some one dimensional weirdos that you hope will be fleshed out but probably won’t, and has a beatific vision of St. Valentine. Not lying about that last part, by the way.

The Roundup: Fall 2015 Volume 11

In this week’s installment… The New Year may be already upon us, but that doesn’t mean we can’t take one last look at the end of this season. In this volume we have two surprise contributors, one welcome and one… well let’s just say they should have worked on it more.

A Very GLORIO 2015: Marlin Thinks Love is Over

Last year I was blessed with some great romance shows that made up for just how few had been released, but this year I have to strain to string together more than two or three shows together where romance was the most appealing factor. Still, there were a few really good things to talk about. Snow White remained captivating and adorable all the way to the break, and Yamada-kun’s heartfelt romance almost made up for it’s runaway train of a final stretch. With all that, I’ll try to stick to my niche as much as I can before going off the deep end once the Ero-Kawaii-tier Awards start flying around.

The Wrap-Up: Summer 2015

If you go about 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 to see which shows let us down the most. When you watch currently airing anime or tokusatsu, eventually the question will rise which of these shows can rank amongst the medium’s true classics. Regardless of who covered what, this is where we single out the cream of the crop, and decide which shows from the past season deserve to stand the test of time.
