Post Reply Top 5-10 Spring 2013 anime so far
Posted 5/13/13 , edited 5/14/13
My Current Top five (Update May 13th, 2013)
Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai. (Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai. has been great so far in my personal opinion. The story is great as of I'm only talking about the anime side of things.)

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Sister's (Now this is a series that I quickly had to watch all of the previous seasons to get a sense of what's what. Of course, I could of probably just watch all up to episode fourteen of index to get that, but it wouldn't be right since it's the second season of Railgun. I just hope that they will do twenty-four episode as what Index and the first season of Railgun did. but I don't know...)

Hataraku Maou-sama! (This series has been funny as hell.)

Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko. (As first, I was worried about this series because of the words Hentai Ōji in the same sentence. But when the first episode came out, my worries were put to rest.)


Honorable Mentions
Hayate no Gotoku! Cuties (Great but I was hoping for more though.)

Haiyore! Nyaruko-san W. (Kuko's Cousin appearance may have save me for dropping the series.)

Shingeki no Kyojin (So, I gave I finally took some time off from reviewing anime to see if I'll give this series a reprieve. And from what you see, It's now in the honorable mentions. The reason for that is that I can see why people like it. But I think it's a bit over-hyped in my opinion.)

Losing Interest
None

Danger Zone
None

Dropped
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. (Dropped after second episode. Note: May come back to it once the Summer 2013 Simulcast begins)
Hyakka Ryōran Samurai Bride (Dropped after first episode. Reason: Need to watch the first season.)
Zettai Bōei Leviathan (Dropped after first five mins. Really)
Mushibugyō
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
Ginga Kikōtai Majestic Prince
Valvrave the Liberator
Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge (Dropped after episode 4)

Flowers of Evil
Yuyushiki
Muromi-san
Red Data Girl
Devil Survivor 2

1. Attack on Titan - Guren no Yumiya is one of the greatest all-around OP sequence I have seen. It's simply inspiring. (Most people take the OP and ED for granted... I strongly consider them a powerful tool for an anime) and one of the most emotional and powerful first episodes I have witness in years. Outstanding insert songs, the art and animation are wonderful, the show simply looks and feels special.
(How can it be over hyped when it was the most anticipating series of the season??? it's over hyped because it got popular like MOST people anticipated?? That means it has delivered MORE than expected. Over hype is when things don't live up to expectations.
However, that does not mean the other shows are bad...No No No... Simply put, this series is not your typical #1 of the season, which is why some argue it is over hyped... it always happens with every great series, although we have 3/4 of it left. But so far, obvious #1 for me.)

2. Gargantia - Terrific work by production I.G., though concerned with the pace since it is a 12-13 ep. series. Hope it gets moving!

3. Flowers of Evil - Different does not mean bad. The social, drama and psychological aspects of this show are marvelous. I believe more people should adjust rather than discard after 5 min of ep 1. This is not bad animation, is DIFFERENT style of production. This show is awesome.

4. Devil Part-Timer - Man, this show is so well done and so funny, I'm already hoping for a second season. Hidden great animation potential, also.

5 My Teen Romantic Comedy - I believe this series takes on a theme that it's still fresh and executes it very well. I look forward for it every Thursday.

6 Valvrave - Typical Sunrise series with great animation and overly complicated story. But I'm a Gundam guy, So... for now, 6th.

7 Devil Survivor - It's pretty entertaining and the ED theme song rocks.

PS: No Chihayafuru 2 since that is a WINTER show, otherwise it would have been 3-4.


Everyone has their their own preferences in terms of genres, which makes most of our lists different, which is great. According to my preferences, only #1 and maybe #2 will be there at the end of the season for sure.

1. Suisei no Gargantia (9/10)
2. HenNeko (8/10)
3. Devil Survivor 2 (7/10)
4. Crime edge (7/10)
5. Aku no Hana (7/10)
6. Red Data Girl (4/10) (Dropped)
7. Date A Live (2/10) (Dropped)
8. Attack on Titan (1/10) (Dropped)
9. Valvrave the Liberator (1/10) (Dropped)

Both Valvrave and Attack on Titan do the most infuriating thing a story can ever do, and I'm really sad that it's becoming a trend. I won't say what it is, to avoid spoilers, but if you've seen both of them, this current arc in Attack on Titan and the beginning of Valvrave have one really awful thing in common.

1. Attack on Titan
2. Oreimo 2
3. Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet
4. The Devil is a Part-Timer!
5. A Certain Scientific Railgun S


Edit: I got impatient and watched 3 episodes of Gargantia today, even though I said I would hold off. Turns out it's amazing, so I updated the list.

I knew it was bound to have its haters, but I don't see how you could watch Attack on Titan and not be impressed. That show is the bomb lol

like any show, it's got it's flaws. unfortunately, Eren is just one huge flaw in my eyes. he's got enough teen angst to fuel half the modern american music industry.

As for Eren's angst - I don't really mind it all that much when I compare him to some other shows. At least Eren has plenty of reasons to be angsty, and he's already growing out of it (as far as I know). Compared to Mirai Nikki or Evangelion (Shinji also had good reason, but you know), Eren's a shining beacon of manliness and courage.

My main problem with Attack on Titan is the really unrealistic setting given to a story that's supposed to teach the characters about the harshness of reality and blah blah blah. I really don't want to take the existence of the wall and 3D Gear at face value in a world that's otherwise hilariously under-equipped to fight Titans.

there's a quote I have that many mentor figures in many anime, games, movies, whatever.. usually say to people like Eren.

"there's a difference between courage and recklessness."

Eren is the embodiment of recklessness. he reminds me of Naruto. screaming about how he wants to be the best, kill the titans, whatever.. then he rushes headlong, screaming while running into the fight without giving a second thought to anything. it's so shonen that it hurts to watch.

Well, I guess most of the series have aired about 5-6 episodes, I'd say that the following are my top favorites this Spring so far:

- Attack on Titan
- Hataraku Maou-sama!
- Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S
- Suisei no Gargantia
- Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai.

Honorable mention: Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Come wa Machigatteiru. (very likely to become top 5 this season for me also)
