I guess all my votes go to Ore no Imouto because that's all I watched. I don't like cliffhangers, so I don't watch shows until they end. I broke that for Oreimo and I regret it because I now have to wait until mid August for the real ending.

Best Story - The Devil is a Part-Timer!
I wasn't sure I wanted to give this to anything, but The Devil is a Part-Timer! pulled off its ridiculous premise really well, and I had so much fun with all that craziness that ensued.

Best Visuals - The Devil is a Part-Timer!
I contemplated giving this to Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet for its beautiful seascapes or Chihayafuru 2 for its gorgeous imagery, but when I saw Maou transform in The Devil is a Part-Timer!, it sent a shiver down my spine that no spring anime that I've seen has been able to replicate through its visuals.

Best OP Song - A Certain Scientific Railgun S OP - Sister's Noise
Man, this OP always gets me so pumped to watch the show. Full of energy and fits the anime perfectly.

Best ED Song - The Devil is a Part-Timer! ED1 - Tsuki Hana
It's just a really catchy tune. If I could click my fingers, I'd be annoying the heck out of everyone by clicking away to this song as it loops in my head!

Best Comedy - The Devil is a Part-Timer!
When it mixed comedy and action, the humour of this anime was hard to beat. Sure, it got a little stale when it stopped trying new things, but it was still the best comedy of the spring season,

Best Character - Taichi Mashima from Chihayafuru 2
This guy is handsome, popular and clever, but at the same time so easy to sympathise with. He's talented at practically everything except karuta, the sport which is so important to him because he sees it as a link to the girl he loves. Painfully aware of his lack of natural ability, he nonetheless works incredibly hard because karuta really is that important to him. He can be petty, spineless and gets frustrated with himself easily, but he feels real. And that counts for so much.

Best of Spring 2013 - Chihayafuru 2
Just like the first season, this anime combines the beauty of poetry with the adrenaline of sport to create an enthralling series. The way the depth of the characters is revealed largely through karuta is amazing. Episode 22 was one of the best anime episodes I've seen in a long time. But it left off at such a tantalising part of the story... season 3 please, Madhouse??

Best Story- Yuyushiki (basically, no story at all...).

Best Animation- Date A Live.

Best OP Song- ...I'm split between Nyaruko-san W and Date A Live.

Best ED Song- Oreimo (just about every single one of them!)

Best Comedy - Hayate no Gotoku: Cuties!. If we're counting anime less than 24 minutes per episode, I'd also choose Muromi-san by the Shore.

Best Character- Hikigaya Hachiman (of course!) from Oregairu.

Best of Spring 2013- Hataraku Mao-sama! (Superior in every category too!).

Best Story Flowers of Evil; Honorable mention to The Severing Crime Edge--interesting and slightly different story, executed in a fairly unique way. Also adding, Chihayfuru

Best Animation Unless something is very unique and stunning, this just doesn't register for me. I'm pretty happy with even crappy animation as long as it's done sufficiently well to move the story along. So, lots of stills--not a problem, as long as I can see the story (Chihayafuru, for example, uses a lot of that, and it's one of the best animes around, IMO). That said, I think the rotoscopy worked really well for Flowers of Evil, so lets count that.

Best OP Song I didn't especially like any of them

Best ED Song Flowers of Evil; Honorable mentions to Red Data Girl, and to Devil Survivor 2 (which I dropped early on, but the ED was great)

Best Comedy The Devil is a Part-Timer! (Hataraku Maou-sama!)

Best Character It's a Tie. Best characters in very different ways: Mikasa (AoT); Hikki (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU)

Best of Spring 2013 Another Tie. Flowers of Evil, The Devil is a Part-TImer!; Chihayafuru 2

ETA: Oh wow. I did forget that Chihayafuru 2 was eligible (until I read deadpanditto's post). I've added it in a couple of places, because it's got to be best something--It's the show I'll miss the most, and look forward to another season of most (I really hope for a season 3 before too long)

According to the OP, I should be allowed to use Chihayafuru S2 since it ended this season.

Best Story: Flowers of Evil -- A story like this should be uncomfortable to watch. It succeeded. Nakamura definitely gets in your head.

Best Animation: Red Data Girl -- The animation is beautiful throughout the show. Other shows might have better episodes, but didn't keep the quality throughout the entire run of the show.

Best OP: Seeno! from Yuyushiki -- The song is incredibly catchy. :)

Best ED: A Last Flower from Flowers of Evil -- Probably one of the best matched songs to a series, ever. This song creeps into your head, just like the show.

Best Comedy: The Devil is a Part-Timer!; honorable mention to Yuyushiki. Both were very funny, though the former wins out for better characters and story.

Best Character: Hachiman from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU -- It's nice to see a character that, for once, is apologetically himself.

Best of Spring 2013: Chihayafuru S2; honorable mention to Flowers of Evil. Chihaya wins since it is one of my favorite shows and I loved S2. Flowers is an extremely memorable show for many reasons. I doubt it will ever get a second season, but it deserves it.

Best Story: Devil Survivor 2. The story, and only the story, is amazing. The ending is horrendous, and the quality of the show downgrades, but the story itself was engaging.

Best Animation: Suisei No Gargantia is consistently beautiful.

Best OP: Kakumeiki Valvrave. Just watch it.

Best ED: Hentai Ouji. I just liked it. It was cute.

Best Comedy: The Devil is a Part-Timer!; this show was an extreme let down as far as story-wise goes, but the comedy in this shit was consistent from the beginning.

Best Character: Hachiman from My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU - he doesn't fit the usual lame male protagonist archetype of "romances" that makes them a walking block of wood. He's hilarious, insightful, and when we get messages throughout his eyes, someone who is extremely reclusive and almost misanthropic, it's absolutely delightful.

Best of Spring 2013: Suisei No Gargantia. It was extremely similar to Shinsekai Yori (which after the first three episodes becomes absolutely awesome) and when the show picked up in pacing it performed flawlessly.
