Favorite Anime of 2013

Postby Seventh » Mon Jan 13, 2014 8:32 am

What was your absolute favorite anime of 2013?

Simple question, no?

So let's take it up a notch!

What was your favorite anime of 2013?

What was your favorite character of 2013?

What was your favorite pairing of 2013?

What was your favorite plot twist of 2013?

What was your favorite soundtrack of 2013?

What was you favorite setting of 2013?

What was your favorite opening song of 2013?

What was your favorite ending song of 2013?

What was your favorite villain of 2013?

What was your favorite final episode of 2013?


If there are any other categories you can think of, feel free to add them, and you are not required to answer any more than what your favorite anime is.

HERE ARE SOME RULES:
1.) If it aired in 2013, it's allowed!
2.) If it began in 2012, but ended in 2013, the parts that were in 2013 count without question, and if you really liked the show/aspect of the show so much that it tops allllll the things from 2013 and 2013 alone, go ahead and list it anyway! This is not a dictatorship! You are free to list what you like so long as it's relevant enough!
3.) If it began in 2013 but is ending in 2014, you can say whatever you want because it's not like we know how it ends anyway!

You used two different tags there, lol.

Also, a link or exhaustive list of all 2013 anime would be quite useful. I can't find any convenient links right away, but will post whatever I do find.

EDIT: This looks like the best place to look up past seasons to me:

... Welp! Fixed that.

Generally, TV Tropes has a fairly accurate listing if you check by season. That's how I keep track of what's airing each season/each coming season, so you could check the 2013 entries maybe?

Hrm........I'm gonna go with Bahamut from ZBL

My gosh this is tough....So many pairings....I think I'll go with Megumi and Tomoko from Watamote. But this was definitely a very hard choice to make. So many other pairings are really high up there.

In Sunday without God
Spoiler:
when it was revealed that it wasn't Dee who died, but Alice who died. That was a fantastic plot twist~ The plot twist that came later on just ruined that though :|

Probably AKB0048 Next, with Love Live being a close second

Problem Children from another world.

What was your favorite anime of 2013?
Hataraku Maou-sama / The Devil is a Part-Timer! Not even a question.

Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio is my second.

What was your favorite character of 2013?
Hmm, I don't usually look at characters individually...

Overall, probably Dairenji Suzuka - Tokyo Ravens.
Visually, either Archer-Ilya from Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Ilya or Mao Sadao from Hataraku Maou-sama. Ilya is epic in that service/nostalgia way combined with how much ass she kicked in that episode :X Mao is cool because he has a lanky young-adult human body and a hulking muscleman demon body, yet it's still very much "him" either way even through the severe change in body type.
Characteristically, Gotou Hidenori from Samurai Flamenco. He's very realistic and down-to-earth, but gets his hands dirty when necessary and acts as a good mentor.

What was your favorite pairing of 2013?
Also don't really think of this stuff that much lol... Kanbara Akihito x Kuriyama Mirai (Kyoukai no Kanata) have the most entertaining relationship while also the most fitting, to me. They focus so much on surface matters normally that it just feels like they naturally click when they also deal with more personal matters.

What was your favorite plot twist of 2013?
Favorite as in most enjoyable? A small one, the end of Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi episode 3. I was actually really surprised that that happened. It made the very end scene even more depressing, though.

Other than that... Colonel Kugel's reveal in Gargantia was actually pretty decent (the whalesquid "twist" was completely telegraphed). Valvrave had the worst one :/

EDIT: vamp is right, the twist in Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi's last arc was extremely impactful :X

What was your favorite soundtrack of 2013?
Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi. I listen to it all day on repeat sometimes.

What was you favorite setting of 2013?
Samurai Flamenco's first arc had the best setting. Then it turned to crap :/ I also really liked Gen'ei wo Kakeru Taiyou's setting, but that show also wasted it.

What was your favorite opening song of 2013?
1. sister's noise by fripSide (A Certain Scientific Railgun S)
2. X-encounter by Kurosaki Maon (Tokyo Ravens)
3. traumerai by LiSa (Gen'ei wo Kakeru Taiyou)

What was your favorite ending song of 2013?
1. Gomen ne, iiko ja irarenai by Sawai Miku (Kill La Kill)
2. Maware! Setsugetsuka by voice cast (Kikai Shoujo wa Kizutsukanai)
3. Owaranai Melody wo Utaidashimashita by Komatsu Mikako (Kami-sama no Inai Nichiyoubi)
4. Aqua Terrarium by Yanagi Nagi (Nagi no Asukara)

What was your favorite villain of 2013?
Hmm, toss up between Alter Saber in Fate/kalied liner prisma Ilya because she's awesome and Kongou in Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio because she's also awesome. For villain you love to hate, probably Striker in Gargantia, the crow in Vividred, or Sariel in Hataraku Maou-sama.

What was your favorite final episode of 2013?
Incoming sports shows~! Girls und Panzer and Saki: Achiga-hen both had really great ending episodes. Outbreak Company also had a good ending. Best action ending was probably Aoki Hagane no Arpeggio.

Harsh on Samumenco, myskaros! So harsh!

Well, time to answer my own thread...

What was your favorite character of 2013?
Issei Hyoudou would be my choice, but that's an incredibly biased choice since I'm up to date on the LNs and he's one of my favorite characters in fiction in general at this point. Joseph Joestar would be my next choice, from the 2013 half of Jojo's Bizarre Adventure.

Runners up would be Izuru from Majestic Prince and Maou from Hataraku.

What was your favorite pairing of 2013?
Raul and Fino from Yuushibu. I rarely get super invested in pairings, but this one actually had me going "Just kiss already!" at the show, which I have... actually never done before. It was weird.

What was your favorite plot twist of 2013?
The end of that episode of Samumenco (even if the show sadly didn't handle it well) was pretty amazing.

Honestly, though, I... can't think of any huge twists that I could call "favorite" beyond that one that actually was a real twist.

What was your favorite soundtrack of 2013?
Majestic Prince, with Gatchaman CROWDS and Symphogear G's insert songs getting notable mentions.

What was you favorite setting of 2013?
I love Nagi no Asukara's setting, even if it isn't really a major focus as much as a plot device for a stupid seagod plot.

What was your favorite opening song of 2013?
Attack on Titan, both of Valvrave's OPs, Log Horizon, with an honorable mention to Kamen Rider Gaim's opening which I can't link because Toei hates YouTube.

I know, I can't pick just one, I love all of them. Sue me!

What was your favorite ending song of 2013?
This, on the other hand, is very easy.

Unbreakable Machine Doll

Good luck getting that out of your head. As if you'd want to!

What was your favorite villain of 2013?
Berg Katze from Gatchaman Crowds, hands down. I love crazy fabulous wackos and he was just perfect. Dr. Ver from Symphogear G was also a lot of fun.

What was your favorite final episode of 2013?
Jojo's Bizarre Adventure (2012-2013) had a goddamn amazing finale to the point that even now I still rewatch it sometimes.

And that just leaves...!

What was your favorite anime of 2013?
Majestic Prince/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure

Can't pick between them, don't make me.

What was your favorite anime of 2013?

Uh...dunno. Maybe something between Oregairu and Shinsekai Yori.

What was your favorite character of 2013?

Hachiman from Oregairu

What was your favorite pairing of 2013?

ChihiroxKeima in TWGOK

What was your favorite plot twist of 2013?

Spoiler:
QUEERATS ARE TEH HUMANS


What was your favorite soundtrack of 2013?

No soundtrack truly stood out to me.

What was you favorite setting of 2013?

From what I'd watched, only the settings for Gargantia and Shinsekai were something else. And from those, I much prefer Gargantia's, as silly as everything gets later on.

What was your favorite opening song of 2013?

Uh...I can't decide. Samurai Flamenco's first season's was boss. So was TWGOK Megami-hen's opening. And...Hentai Ouji's...as hard as I dropped that series, that opening is really neat.

What was your favorite ending song of 2013?

Shinsekai Yori's.
