Glasslip – 12

「花火(再び)」 (Hanabi (Futatabi))
“Fireworks (Again)”

I had a witty one-liner about flashbacks all ready to go until the second half of the episode took that idea and tossed it straight into the trash.

Glasslip – 11

“Piano”

If the anime decided to do things like from the start, I think we’d be in a much better position. Basically, after being jerked around for weeks on end we finally got an episode that was genuinely pretty decent.

Glasslip – 10

「ジョナサン」 (Jyonasan)
“Jonathan”

I’m still confused about how I want to feel about this show. Because every single time I’m on the verge of going “I’m okay with this” something completely incomprehensible happens.

Glasslip – 09

「月」 (Tsuki)
“Moon”

With the anime slowly turning around in some aspects, I can’t help but laugh a bit as I think about just how far we’ve come since episode one.

Glasslip – 08

「雪」 (Yuki)
“Snow”

After last week’s train wreck, I thought this week’s episode did a little better. While I’m still a little confused about what direction the show is trying to go in, P.A. Works did a great job at illustrating a world that’s literally falling apart at the seams.

Glasslip – 07

「自転車」 (Jitensha)
“Bicycle”

This week’s episode felt like someone with schizophrenia got a hold of the reigns and decided to drive the damn thing off of a cliff.

「パンチ」 (Panchi)

This has been the first episode that genuinely got my attention and had me cheering for more.

Glasslip – 05

「日乃出橋」 (Hinodebashi)

Summer is the time for love — or so they say.

Glasslip – 04

「坂道」 (Sakamichi)
“Uphill”

After the last few weeks of romantic escapades and awkward love triangles being formed, this week gave us a glimpse of what happens when you try to stretch the ropes of friendship a little too far.

Glasslip – 03

「ポリタンク」 (Poritanku)
“Plastic Container”

I’m a firm believer in giving any show at least three episodes before making any assumptions and I’m glad I believed in Glasslip. Compared to the first two episodes, the third was a wonderful blend of romance, slice-of-life giggles, and just the right amount of looking into the future.

Glasslip – 02

「ベンチ」 (Bennchi)
“Bench”

Romantic triangles and the ability to see into the future? I can’t imagine how a combination of those two things could ever go wrong.

「花火」 (Hanabi)
“Fireworks”

A new P.A. Works original that focuses on the lives of a bunch of friends as they spend their final summer together and meet some transfer student who may or may not have ESP / Special Powers? Sign me up!
