The GLORIO Decade: The 2010s in Anime Music

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.

All Your Monies: July 26th 2017

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing all-seeing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard-earned cash on. This week it’s a Nendoroid invasion as they occupy the top four slots. Don’t count out scale figures though, as there are some real beauties fighting back.

All Your Monies: July 12th 2017

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing all-seeing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard-earned cash on. This week it’s back to buisness as usual after reliving some traumatic memories for the 5th anniversary post.

A Very GLORIO 2016: The Top 10

And so another GLORIO year comes to a close with only one thing left to do: reveal our picks for the ten best anime series of the year, or in our case eleven since it seems the only flaw in our system is getting ties at #10. If this is your first time joining us,…

A Very GLORIO 2016: Gee’s Hot Takes of Excellence

2016 is already over? Crazy! What a shitshow huh? 2016 was a solid year for anime (if not for literally anything else) and my awards are my chance to give a shoutout to their various accomplishments and qualities. Some of these awards are old standards, others are just my gut reactions to things I liked in 2016. Whatever, let’s go!

A Very GLORIO 2016: Jel’s Best Anime Moments of the Year

2016 was bad. Watching the world fall apart has made something as silly as writing about cartoons difficult to focus on at times. Still, it’s good to have a way to escape and anime has been good for that. In fact, I’d say this is the best overall year of anime we’ve had since 2011. I certainly had fun compiling my annual list of favorite moments and it was hard to narrow down to ten… so I decided not to. Hey, it’s my list and I will do what I want. So enjoy the list and stay tuned for the rest of the week as the rest of the crew shares their highlights from this year.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 10

AAAAAHHH! This season is already almost over! This year is already almost over! We have some fun year-in-review posts lined up starting tomorrow, but in the mean time there is still good anime to talk about. Girlish Number and Yuri On Ice are nearly complete, but strong episodes from Classicaloid and March Comes In Like a Lion make me happy they will be continuing into next season.

OP/ED Op-Eds: The Best of Fall 2016

With the season far from more than halfway over, it’s time to once again take a look (and listen) at our favourite songs from shows that have been airing for the past few months. The lineup of bloggers recommending their pick may have shrunk a bit, compared to the past couple of times we did this, but on the other hand, This will be the first OP/ED Op-Eds in ages that won’t ask you to listen to the same song twice. Hey, I guess this season was just that good? Not much of a consolation, but eh, we’ll take what we can get. Anyway, this time around, I namedrop a bunch of artists you should ask your dad about, Artemis gets another reason to fawn over Yuri!! on Ice and Jel is most likely on drugs. Again.

All Your Monies: November 30th 2016

Hello, and welcome to All Your Monies, where The Glorio Blog’s resident toy and figure collecting crew (and Iro) will run down the last week’s new pre-orders, turning a loving or scathing all-seeing eye over what’s been put out for you to spend your hard-earned cash on. This week the crew is once again assaulted by illness but not even that can keep them from their sacred duty of disapprovingly frowning at skeevy figures.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 7

No March Comes In Like a Lion this week makes me sad and Yuri doesn’t deliver anything quite as historic as last week, but the Roundup is still as strong as ever. Now go watch Girlish Number and then call your parents, they’re probably worried about you.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 5

It’s been a rough week, and in these difficult times writing about cartoons feels more frivolous than usual. Perhaps more than ever though, I’m personally enjoying the comfort and brief escapism of some good anime. So take a minute to relax and forget about all the horrible things going on in the world for just a moment. I’ll be happy if we can at least offer that much.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 4

Here at the Glorio Blog we always strive to deliver QUALITY anime coverage, regardless of our production schedule. It helps when there’s a lot of good shows to talk about of course, and I’m probably going to sound like a broken record here but wow this season is good. Yuri and March deliver as always, Girlish Number and ClassicaLoid are turning out pretty good, and somehow Aqua is still watching (and enjoying?) Kiss Him, Not Me.

The Roundup: Fall 2016 Volume 3

The Roundup keeps on truckin’ with our usual batch of animes. Artemis is back but a few shows find themselves flirting with the chopping block, if not being cut altogether. You’ll have to read on to find out more, but I’ll tell you now I would probably never cut a show in which someone can say “Beethoven-senpai” unironically.
