  • Metaphors, way to many!!!
    I love story driven anime. I like character driven anime.

    I gave it a chance, I honestly did. Watched the full 13 episodes. Most interpretations of the anime talk about metaphors. I'm totally fine with it, but you need to stretch it a bit in order to barely make sense. Some of the secondary characters are just uninteresting, and even the main ones won't make up for it.

    There's a reason why ...

  • Total and compete waste of time
    This anime deserves 1/2 a star. It has stunning artwork,but that is it! There is NO plot, the story line & the conversations do not make sense.
    Save yourself and do not waste your time watching this anime! I watched the whole thing thinking maybe it would get better but NOPE it doesn't.

  • You gotta look closely to see the big picture!
    A lot of spoilers ahead and some opinions and observations that may seem kind of outlandish but just give it a read and see how you view this anime afterwards. This is kind of long so there is a TL;DR at the bottom that summarizes this entire review.

    I can understand why some people don't like this anime. It's confusing with a lot of symbolism that you won't understand the first time around. ...

  • Waste of time! Don't even bother!
    I watched this anime around when it finished airing and must I say....I never felt like I wasted so much time before, watching an anime. I continued hoping that it was gonna get better, and there are parts when you really think "Oh! I think things might start happening". That hope is crushed as you get to the end and literally nothing happens...NOTHING. It seemed so promising in the start, it was ...

  • The Good, The Bad, and The Okay
    This anime was full of many plot twist interesting plot and cute girls. Many fans of this anime will not seem to admit just how great it is because the ending left an unfinished feeling. But overall I must say the voice acting fits very well, the art style is also something to rave about with its beautiful and vibrant colors that just pop out at your eyes. Overall I would give this anime a 8/10 ...

  • So great but still. So sad, and still so bad.
    A Fantastic anime. You watch it. You love it. You love the development of it all. You love to see the characters evolve, the slow pace, the beautiful colors. And then there is the story. You want to have closure, so badly. It starts to hurt. I am hurt. This show could give me cancer. But why do i love it so much. Why does it have to be such a nonfullfilling ending. Why am I sitting here, writing ...

    an anime that sees no point
    Onegai, save yourself the trouble of watching...
    disorganized, confusing, lack of actual development etc... In short, the only thing good about GLASSLIP and, in my opinion, its only saving grace, is the beautiful artwork, other than that is the fact that it is now OVER, thus saving you and others from having to wait weeks for each and every ep to air while trying to solve an impossible ...

  • Did it this series actually have an ending???
    I feel like the viewer is left without closure or any sense of certainty as to what happens to the characters. I am left wishing for an ending, what happens to everyone? is there the proverbial happily ever after? do they meet again? do they attend the same high school?
    do they need the fragments? do the fragments go away completely?

    3 Stars for laying some groundwork, I did enjoy ...

  • Please, ensure the sobriety of your subtitler/translator. This is a tragedy.
    Well this is tragic. It appears the individual responsible for subtitles/translations dropped acid, salvia, datora, and dymethyltriptomine all at once. I paused on some of the conversations just to make sure I wasn't going batshit crazy.

    I was able to squeeze out that our new kid claims a voice from the future talks to him and all, but aside from that I couldn't make it past episode 7. I get ...

  • Anime + Art - Story = Horrible mess
    So, I finally picked up this anime to see what was the butthurt was all about with the wars raging between "Best anime N/A" to "Horrid storyline where nothing happened" and I won't take sides.
    I will take all the flack anyone wants to shoot me with, I don't care, but everyone is entitled to their opinion.

    That being said, GlassLip was INSANELY confusing with how little the story advanced over ...
