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 :XWhat 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)
by Kurosaki Maon (Tokyo Ravens)
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.
