    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 ...

  • Glasslip, good show, but you decide the ending...
    As a whole I really enjoyed this show, sure its not the best slice of life, romance out there but its quite good, the use of music is really well done. The ending however leaves the viewer not sure of the outcome which I think was an attempt to allow each person to make their own decision as to what actually happened but it felt more like the writer just leaves you hanging and doesn't give you a ...

  • Watch it, Or Dont...
    GLASSLIP Had a very promising beginning, and then just went down hill... I decided to put it on hold and now coming back to it, it didn't change... but i still do enjoy it. This Anime is not for everyone, Decide for your self; watch at least 3-4 episodes before deciding

  • Glasslip wtf let down
    This series would've been good if the story, and character development didnt suck... The only good thing about this anime was the graphics. I finished 10 episodes already and the only reason i have to keep watching is knowing that im almost done with this series.

    Even at 13 episodes, this show is a slog
    I almost decided against posting this review after skimming through the 80+ others posted here. Most of the reviews pretty consistently bullet point the pros and cons of the show. But, why the hell not add to the mix and vent a little.

    In typical PA works fashion, the setting and backdrop design are gorgeous. The town the series takes place in is lovingly and meticulously crafted to create the ...

    Disappointed By the Plot but Loved the Art
    This show was really confusing the majority of the time. There were a lot of things that just didn't seem like good character development and storyline, or just the reality of it.
    When a transfer student shows up and tries to become friends with our main female character, her friends don't even give him a chance. There is a stand off in one of the very first episodes. One girl even says she ...

    Absolutely beautiful but..... disappointed
    The animation is stunning (which doesn't surprise me since it comes from P.A. works) and the music is pretty nice but I unfortunately can't say the same for the story.

    The story is quite slow and confusing. The ending (just like the story) confusing and unsatisfying. It's very disappointing, every week I would leave confused and I hoping there would be an ending that gave me closer that would ...

  • Animation was good...
    It was well drawn and the colours were so bright and vibrant. I liked the different characters and how the different personalities jibed and fostered friendships.

    But I believe that I will end my comment there as I always have to remind myself that if I do not have anything nice to say, then might as well keep my mouth shut...or my keyboard quiet, for that matter.
