Wow seems like a lot of good anime, well in my opinion, aren't eligible for voting this season >< Good thing is that it'll make the voting a little more interesting! But if we do decide on doing the Annual 2013 Anime Awards those anime will be eligible. Please only post your votes for the 2013 Fall Anime Awards here, as well as if you'd like to do the annual voting, which will take place in a different Topic. :D

EDIT: I went ahead and split the two categories, Slice of life and Drama as per request I will get the 2013 Annual Anime Awards Topic up next Monday. I will post a link to that here as well :)

Finished.

Best Story

1. Kyousougiga
Nothing else worth voting for.

Best Individual Episode

1. Kyousougiga, Episode 00
2. Arpeggio of Blue Steel, Episode 10
3. White Album 2, Episode 10-11 (Second half of 10 through first half of 11, Touma flashback)

Best Animation

1. Kyousougiga
I don't know that I've seen any anime with animation I liked better. Art style was perfect. Different enough to be quirky, reasonable enough to follow. Overall, an inspiring example of the potential of anime as an artistic medium.
2. Galilei Donna
I prefer A-1's characters to KyoAni's, so Galilei Donna gets the nod for second place & for a color palette I really liked.
3. Beyond the Boundary
Crisp animation & good coloration, but just not good enough to rise higher than third. Blasphemy, I know.

Best Use of CGI

1. Arpeggio of Blue Steel
You could also give this show the award for worst use of CGI, but the battles scenes are easily the best.
2. Tokyo Ravens
Not gonna lie, if other shows this season used CGI, I haven't noticed. Give it to the raindrops moment in the OP.

Best OP

1. "tiny lamp" by fhána from Gingitsune
I love fhána and I love this song. Not an easy choice, but it's beautiful music, so I'm happy.
2. "Savior of Song" by Nano feat. My First Story from Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Awesome synth riffs and great vocals keep this one up there .
3. "Koko" by Tamurapan from Kyousougiga
The song makes me want to cry sometimes because it is so beautiful.

Honorable Mentions to: Log Horizon, Tokyo Ravens and Galilei Donna OPs

Best ED

1. "Daisy" by Stereo Dive Foundation from Beyond the Boundary
Just the best OP/ED song of the entire season, hands down.
2. "Far" by Angela from Coppelion
Almost forgot the song because I dropped the show, but it's very worthy of this list.
3. "Your Song" by Yun*chi from Log Horizon
Hate the singer's voice, but I still really like the song, somehow.

Best OST

1. Kyousougiga
2. White Album 2

Best Action

1. Arpeggio of Blue Steel

Best Slice of Life

1. Gingitsune
A flawless show in the genre, in my opinion. Heartwarming, relaxing and fun to watch. Highly recommended.
2. Non Non Biyori
Picked up late, and was surprised to find a show even more relaxed than Gingitsune. Makes me miss summer.

Best Drama

I abstain.

Best Comedy

1. My Mental Choices are Completely Ruining My High School Romantic Comedy
Deceiving title: nothing about this show is ruined. It's hilarious and very reminiscent of another comedy I enjoyed, Nyarko-San.
2. Miss Monochrome
Good for one really hilarious joke an episode, plus the narrator's unnecessary explanations were hilarious.

Best Short Series

1. Miss Monochrome
Only short I watched this season, but sufficiently entertaining and occasionally clever, enough so that I feel good about casting my vote for it.

Best Male Character

1. Haruki Kitahara, White Album 2
Although I kind of hated him by the end, a truly interesting, real and fascinating character.
2. Kanada Amakusa, Noucome

Best Female Character

1. Renge, Non Non Biyori
2. Kazusa Touma, White Album 2
See description for Haruki Kitahara.
3. Setsuna Ogiso, White Album 2
See above.

Surprise of the Season

1. Arpeggio of Blue Steel
2. Kyousougiga
3. Non Non Biyori

BEST OF FALL 2013

1. Kyousougiga
2. Gingitsune
3. Non Non Biyori

And yes, split up slice of life and drama into separate categories.

I personally view them as different genres that don't necessarily go hand in hand.

Actually, I think you should include the 2 core shows. It kinda kills some of my selections for the Fall season tbh in some categories such as best action, best male/female characters, etc.

The list that is given now isn't what I like to vote from exactly.

Also, no Monogatari Second Series in there....wow.

Ok time for my votes.

First I say yes to both 2013 voting and splitting Slice of Life and Drama.

I actually had to stop and think for a bit because 3 of my Top 5 favorite shows from this season aren't eligible until next season's awards, so I've lost some of my sure fire choices.

So let's get started!

Best Story: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Best Animation: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Best Use of CGI: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Best OP: Kill la Kill
Best ED: Unbreakable Machine-Doll
Best Action: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Best Slice of Life: I Couldn't Become a Hero, So I Reluctantly Decided to Get a Job
Best Drama: Arpeggio of Blue Steel
Best Comedy: My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering with My School Romantic Comedy
Best Short Series: Miss Monochrome
Best OST: Kill la Kill
Best Single Episode: Arpeggio of Blue Steel Episode 10
Surprise of the Season: Outbreak Company
Best Male Character: Kanade Amakusa(My Mental Choices Are Completely Interfering with My School Romantic Comedy)
Best Female Character: Takao(Arpeggio of Blue Steel)
Best of Fall 2013: Arpeggio of Blue Steel

Edit: This is my final edit. I was having trouble thinking of what to vote for Best Drama as there isn't any pure dramas I watched this season that were eligible. I had Outbreak Company as a placeholder because it did have a surprising amount of drama at first, but it eventually settled in as more comedy than drama. I was going to vote Coppelion as a joke answer(cause while it isn't really a drama there certainly was a lot of drama), but decided to throw another bone for Arpeggio, cause upon further thought, while there is a lot of awesome action scenes(this why I voted for it for Best Action as well), the main core of the series is that story and the character arcs of the Fog Mental Models, and really when you think about it it is actually an Action Drama series.

Yeah I totally spaced Monogatari. I even told myself while creating this topic NOT to forget Monogatari and sure enough I did >< Thanks for the reminder! oh and you too pistolsaf :)

But as with including some of the core shows, initially I would say no but if the majority of everybody wants to do that then I feel like it would be okay
