    Severely Lacking Plot, Dialogue, and Characters
    PA WORKS has always impressed me with their art. This anime is no exception; it has amazingly gorgeous artwork. The problem is that having stunning backdrops/artwork does not, SHOULD NOT, exempt you from having a storyline that makes sense, or God forbid the dialogue from making sense!

    This anime starts off promising and sadly declines rapidly. It’s about a ...

    Pretty, but oh so slow
    I know all the fanboys who always rate things 5 stars will mark this as "not helpful" even though what they mean is "you are mean, waaah" Well, so be it.

    Glasslip is pretty, but it is an achingly slow romance with sci-fi elements sprinkled on top and personally I find it rather frustrating to watch. It could be a lot worse, for instance, if characters repeatedly said what others had just ...

    Beauty through the looking glass.
    Final revise at season end. Added a rough summery at the bottom of the review as a wrap up of my take on what happened.

    This slice of life series starts out with a beautiful blend of softer music and an animation that shifts it's style depending on flow, focus, or spectacle. There is quite a bit of attention paid to the smaller background details as well. Despite the beauty of the art, this ...

    Glass is Some Times Beautiful Inside and Out, But....
    Glasslip is about Tōko Fukami who hangs out with her four best friends at a cafe called "Kazemichi."

His arrival sets off a series of events that will make their final summer together one full of ...

    A Big, Hot, Steaming Pile of Ambiguous
    Hey! You! Yeah you!

    Do you enjoy watching paint dry? Or watching the grass grow? Do you enjoy spending all that time and then not being really sure whether or not the paint actually dried or the grass really grew? Well boy, do I have the perfect show for you!

    Behold, as I weave a tale of mystery, romance and suspense that will leave you in a constant state of almost caring.

    On second ...

    Worst slice of life ever
    Teenage romance is a hot topic in the anime world. Some shows are able to capture this phenomenon quite well (Examples: White Album 2, Clannad, etc.) while others miss the mark. But even those shows that don't hit that bulls-eye at least land somewhere on the board. Glasslip is a show that not only misses the board but also hits some stranger passing by, making nonsense and causing a huge debacle ...

    Lack of character development in the place they needed it the most.
    I think it's safe to say that Touko was supposed to be the main character out of the whole group. Yet out of the whole group we see the least amount of character development on her. Her whole attitude of thinking she knows what she's doing or thinking she's confident enough goes out the window a few minutes later and she gets confused again. This leaves the viewer confused as well since we are ...

    Pretty Visuals - Horrible Story. Pass on this one.
    Well animated, good music .... absolutely horrible story. Pacing is excruciatingly slow. Characters are terrible - I feel no sympathy/connection to them. Very poorly written. Elements of the story that seem relevant are not or just aren't followed up on. I don't know how this show got green-lit from the studio...

    It has potential... But no.
    I was really looking forward to this anime. I've watched about seven episodes so far, though, and I'm sincerely unimpressed. The animation is beautiful and the characters and story have potential, however, there is barely any development happening. The story seems very fragmented and very little happens on each episode. Certain events don't make as much sense as they should, in my opinion.

    I'll ...

    Visually pleasant series
    Glasslip: Drama, Slice of Life, Romance

    The art for this series is quite good. It's bright and very fitting for the setting for a slice of life genre anime. That was expected for the studio that produced Nagi No Asakura. However that was all the appeal I could find for this anime. If not for that, and crunchyroll's standards of critiques, I would've given this no stars.

    The ...
