2013 Spring Anime Awards
Posted 6/25/13 , edited 6/29/13
Best Story

Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko.
The twelfth episode of this series has made me awarded Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko. with Best Story. Honestly if Ore no Imōto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai.'s OVAs would have aired today instead of August, Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko. may have won or lost.

Best Animation

TBA
The Spring 2013 simulcast hasn't ended yet for me to make a decision.

Best OP

Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Sisterssister's noise by fripSide
I awarded Best OP to Toaru Kagaku no Railgun Sisters' — sister's noise because when I listen to it, it gets me pumped up. I even listen to the song every time when I head out of the house.

Best ED

Shingeki no Kyojin美しき残酷な世界 by Yōko Hikasa
I picked Shingeki no Kyojin's — 美しき残酷な世界 because when I listen to it, it makes me want to cry.

Best Comedy

Hentai Ōji to Warawanai Neko.
TBR

Best Character

Kōsaka Kirino!

きりりん | illustration by だっち
I've picked Kirino because... Because I just can Kōsaka Kirino is my favorite character in Ore no Imōto ga Konna ni Kawaii Wake ga Nai. While there's many, and I mean many, characters that I could pick from the series I've seen, Kirino is special to me. Her CV, Taketatsu Ayana, is one of the many reasons I love Kirino.

Best of Spring 2013

The Spring 2013 simulcast hasn't ended yet for me to make a decision.

Best Story
Chihayafuru 2.

Best Animation
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet. I don't know, I just think it looks pretty nice. I would have voted Attack on Titan if it were eligible.

Best OP
Dansai Bunri No Crime (Severing Crime Edge). I initially had voted for Date A Live, but I forgot how awesome this song is.

Best ED
Baby Sweet Berry Love (Henneko The Hentai Prince and the stony cat). I'm a sucker for stupid songs like this :P

Best Comedy
YUYUSHIKI. This anime has been consistently funny all season. It's like a cross between Azumanga Daioh, Yuruyuri, and Lucky Star. Very enjoyable.

Best Character
Chamber (Gargantia on the Verdurious Planet). The last line he has in the show seals the deal for me. That's one cool robot.

Best of Spring 2013
Chihayafuru 2. I don't think this series will get a lot of votes because it isn't really on the radar as a Spring anime. But it was over-all really good, almost as excellent as the first season. I just hope that they churn out manga at a good pace so that someday I can see a third season be animated.

What about anime with more than 13 episodes that end this season?


If the show ended in the Spring 2013 season you can vote on it

I've only actually seen a couple this season ( ) so I'm a little restricted in terms of choice.

I'll say Date a Live for Best Animation, Best OP and Best Character (Tohka Yatogami - Well, OK, It's more of a crush than anything but hey-ho )

(The awards aren't restricted to Crunchyroll shows, are they?)


I'll also say Oreimo 2 for Best Comedy.
'She's eating a sausage.'


No the shows arent restricted to CR aired shows only.

Best Story Attack on Titan
the story is fairly original and very well thought out and entertaining

Best Animation Attack on Titan
the animation is very good as usual coming from production I.G.

Best Opening Attack on Titan
One of the best openings I've heard I could listen to it for hours

Best Ending Devil Survivor 2
a very good ending that shows all the characters and has characters disappear from the ending when they die

Best Comedy Oreimo 2
very funny show with lots of great lines

Best Character Yukino Yukinoshita from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU
shes very similar to Senjougahara from bakemonogatari one of my favorite characters of all time

Best of Spring 2013 Attack on Titan
the story characters animation and soundtrack to this show are amazing this show will probably get anime of the year even though this is only the first season


Try and avoid using Attack on Titan seeing that the anime is airing through the Spring season and into the Summer Season. Only anime that have ended during the Spring 2013 season are valid for votes

Edit: Well, I was able to complete a few series, and I think I've seen enough of the other series I'm watching to vote for each category.

Best Story
Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet - I've actually only seen 4 episodes of this series so far. However, many of the other series I've watched this season, while good, were not necessarily deep in the story department. Plot-wise, I have liked what I have seen from this series, and based on the great review scores, I'm confident that it'll end up with the best story-line of the summer.

Best Animation
RDG: Red Data Girl - This is really no contest, not because there aren't any visually impressive titles, but that P.A. Works did such an amazing job visually with this series, as they typically do. I may have to go back and look at Hanasaku Iroha, which I have considered the best-looking anime series that I have seen, to compare them. The amount of detail is fantastic, and the character designs and backgrounds are beautiful.

Edit: Well, it appears that "Best OP/ED" was changed to "Best OP Song/Best ED Song". This actually does slightly affect my results, with the OP/ED songs as the focus as opposed to the OP/ED, visuals and all.

Best OP Song
Muromi-san OP 1 (Theme = Nanatsu no Umi yori Kimi no Umi by Sumire Uesaka) - Just like the series, this opening theme is different and even wacky. In fact, you could say it even contributes to the wackiness of the series. It sounds good and does what an OP should do - get you ready for the show you're about to watch.

Best ED Song
Chihayafuru 2 OP 1 (Theme = Akane Sora by Asami Seto) - I'm not sure if this counts since this is the same ED song from it's winter cour. With that in mind, I did like the beautiful sound of the vocals on this piece, not to mention the instrument sound when the ED first starts. Now, since this might not count since it carried over from the winter, my alternate choice for this category would be...
RDG: Red Data Girl (Theme = Yokan by Masumi Itou) - Sorry for the lack of depth in describing why I like this piece, but sometimes I find it difficult to explain why I like certain things other than "I just do." I just simply like the way the song sounds and how it seems to match the series.

Best Comedy
Oreimo 2 - Like with "Best Story", I'm actually not done with this series, as well as with The Devil Is a Part-Timer!. However, I really enjoyed the first season as well as what I have seen of this season. The Devil Is a Part-Timer! appears to be a good comedy in its own right, though I do wonder about the plot. I have finished My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, which I thought was good, but not great. I feel more comfortable giving this award to Oreimo 2.

Best Character
Chihaya Ayase - I can't not give this to Chihaya, one of my favorite anime characters period. She's extremely likable, funny without meaning to be, and very attractive. I don't see this series being anywhere near as good if she wasn't the central character.

Best Spring 2013
Chihayafuru 2 - For those who are already crowning Attack on Titan as the best anime of the year, I want to remind them of this spectacular series, and it would take a lot to unseat it in my mind. I really liked how the melodrama (I guess that's the right word), while not absent entirely, has a smaller part in this series. Instead, the focus is on karuta, which remarkably never gets old. One would think that this shift in focus would make the series a little dull, but somehow this series manages to keep me "on edge". The matches are fantastic, the visuals are remarkable, and the characters are very likable. Speaking of which, I liked how that the new characters were not shoved down my throat in this series, which I think helped me to like them more.

Since I wasn't as big on the drama in the first season (it was nice, but not as great as the other aspects), I much preferred Chihayafuru 2 to its prequel. This is only the 5th anime that I have rated as 10/10 on MAL (accompanying Clannad ~After Story~, Cardcaptor Sakura, Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica, and Steins;Gate), making it the obvious choice for me for this category. If there's a vote in the future for "Best Anime of 2013", I have a difficult time seeing myself vote for something else (yes, even Attack on Titan).

I haven't seen a lot. I've only seen the Severing Crime Edge, My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU, Karneval and Uta no Prince-sama season 2. I'll cast my vote officially on Monday as I need to see more anime of the season.

I might vote eventually, but it seems unreasonable that shows like Hunter X Hunter will never get a chance to be voted on. Honestly, shows longer than 13 episodes should be eligible only for the time period of the season (the 13 episodes), since even if they are leagues ahead of all the shows ending they will never get due credit. I cannot stand for awarding best show to anything less than what is truly the best show.

I don't have much right to post here since I've only watched 6 series this season but here we go anyway.

Best Story
Maoyu
Honorable Mention: A Certain Scientific Railgun S

Best Animation
Attack on Titan.

Best OP/ED
opening: n/a
ending: Attack On Titan

Best Comedy

Hataraku Maou-Sama/My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

Best Character
Hachiman Hikigaya (My Teen Romantic Romantic Comedy SNAFU)

Best of Spring 2013
My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU

As much I like Attack on Titan's action, Maoyu's interesting concepts, and Maou's outrageous-ness, I love listening to Hikigaya's questionable views on life more than anything else.

I also watched Gargantia in case you wondering. It was good but it didn't live up to its expectations.

I do hope you know that Maoyu is a Winter 2013 anime, and doesn't qualify for the Spring 2013 awards, right?
