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

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


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 :)


I seriously think you should consider 2 core shows as that list right there given isn't what I had hoped in mind to vote from.

Response irrelevant now. xD

@pleth0ra Might want to clarify that OPs/EDs from all shows airing this season are eligible.

@stark700 This is just my opinion, but since Kill la Kill, Log Horizon, Golden Time, Tokyo Ravens, Strike the Blood, Hajime no Ippo, Kuroko & Flamenco (all what I would consider big time shows) are all going to be eligible against each other next round, I'm okay with postponing them. Imo, there's not much in the season that could really break into that block (especially with fan favs like KLK, LH and Golden Time there), so it gives a better balance in the votes. That's just what I think though, although I do still kinda agree with you.

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


Honestly I say leave it as is with only allowing the series that end this season being eligible. It allows for a more interesting mix and let's be real, there is almost nothing good airing next season. We'll need stuff to vote on for the Winter season.

This is going to be tricky because most of my favorites are ineligible. In any case, here goes.

Best Story: Valvrave 2 (the story keeps getting interesting)

Best Animation: Beyond the Boundary (Animation with a focus on blood and not gore? That's just awesome. Kyoto Animation did a fantastic job)
Best CGI: I tie this in with animation, so I won't vote on this one.
Best OP: S M L (My Mental Choices) (I watched the music video for the full version. It's catchy. The song itself is great)
Best ED: Strike my Soul (Strike the Blood) (I usually don't like the ending song, but this season brought some awesome ones. This one is the best of the bunch)
Best Action: Unbreakable Machine Doll (I like this concept. There is blood, but not too much)
Best Slice of Life: Non Non Biyori (This is a nice change of pace compared to what else is airing)
Best Drama: Beyond the Boundary (The comedy is a nice enhancer)
Best Comedy: My Mental Choices (This would not have been number one if I could vote for Golden Time. This one is hilarious either way)
Best Male: This one's ridiculously hard. I'm going to go with Masato Inohara (Little Busters Refrain)
Best Female: This one's much easier, but still not easy since I can't choose Akatsuki or Himeragi, but I have to go with Mirai Kuriyama (Beyond the Boundary) (Anyone else would have been unpleasant)
Best OST: Infinite Stratos 2 (the music itself is not number one for me. It's how well the music meshes with the animation that gives this number one)
Best Single Episode: Arpeggio of Blue Steel Episode 7 (Iona gets abused)
Biggest Surprise: My Mental Choices. I thought this was going to be nothing but fanservice. I like being wrong sometimes.
Best of Fall: Beyond the Boundary (Kyoto Animation rarely fails. This is not one of those cases)

For the record, the Annual awards should be separate.

Runner-Ups:

Best Story: Arpeggio of Blue Steel (I don't know why, but the military-like anime have superior stories)
Best Animation: Unbreakable Machine Doll (Action without a focus on blood and fluid battle scenes)
Best OP: Golden Time (Gee, I wonder what anime THIS song is from) (Great song. I can't say more)
Best ED: Maware! Setsugetsuka (Unbreakable Machine Doll) (This makes me giggle)
Best Action: Infinite Stratos 2 (The combat scenes are awesome)
Best Slice of Life: Little Busters Refrain (It's Key. What do you expect?)
Best Drama: Little Busters Refrain (It's Key. What do you expect?)
Best Comedy: Beyond the Boundary (The glasses are not unpleasant)
Best Male: Gunzou Chihaya (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) (He's smart and curious simultaneously)
Best Female: Iona (Arpeggio of Blue Steel) (She's absolutely adorable. Episode 7 gave her a level up)
Best OST: Valvrave 2 (Kind of hard not to enjoy it)
Best Single Episode: Beyond the Boundary Episode 5 (Those guys with their thoughts on Mirai-chan)
Biggest Surprise: Little Busters Refrain.
I should explain. This was not a positive nor a negative surprise. With only two or three episodes with good old Key-style comedy, it felt different from the first season.
Second Best of Fall: Little Busters Refrain (Key. That's all you need to know)

3rd Place:

Best Story: Little Busters Refrain (The Clannad Man Tears did not flow. J.C. Staff was unsuccessful. However, WHAT AN ENDING!!! WHAT A STORY! Wow. Just wow. Key's ability to make you ride emotional roller coasters is sublime to the max. Little Busters will never be as good as Clannad, Angel Beats, or even Kanon, but Little Busters delivered a heart pounding story that exceeded my expectations)
Best Animation: Infinite Stratos 2 (The fight scenes are awesome)
Best OP: Kakumei Dualism (Valvrave 2) (I love this song. The fact that it's a duet makes it better)
Best ED: None
Best Action: Arpeggio of Blue Steel (No reason really. I just liked it better than the other action anime)
Best Slice of Life: Beyond the Boundary (The comedy is a nice boost)
Best Drama: My Mental Choices (Yukihira did the job)
Best Comedy: Unbreakable Machine Doll (Had Little Busters been funnier, this would not have made it)
Best Male: Sigmund (Unbreakable Machine Doll) [I bet you didn't see THAT coming] (His intuition and understanding of humans)
Best Female: Sarashiki Tatenashi (Infinite Stratos) (One of the new harem girls and doesn't seem romantically attracted to Ichika)
Best OST: My Mental Choices (The OP is the reason)
Best Single Episode: Little Busters Refrain episode 1 (Don't anger Yuiko Kurugaya)
Biggest Surprise: Walkure Romanze. I expected more fanservice than what there really is. There is still a ton of it one way or another.
Third Best of Fall: Arpeggio of Blue Steel (Between Chihaya's personality and intelligence, Iona's cuteness, and the plot, this one is deserving the bronze)

Anime I watched this season not listed:
Monogatari 2. I was really underwhelmed. The first season was SO much better and I actually liked the Tsubasa arc more because Araragi was NOT there. I was fascinated by what happened when the one guy is not an active part of the equation. After that, watching was just barely enough to keep me interested. I know a lot of people are going to disagree, but that's fine. It makes things interesting.
Huh, that's the only one (not counting the two season anime like Golden Time and Strike the Blood).

Wow. Not being able to choose from Golden Time, Tokyo Ravens, Log Horizon, Nagi no Asukara, and Strike the Blood really complicates things. At least it will simplify the Winter 2014 awards. Hopefully. Could also complicate it because of Chuunibyou season 2.

I'm not sure why but I thought Kill la Kill had 13 episodes... Learning it has 25 is wonderful news to me.

Also, Wikipedia says Magi will have 26 episodes.

You're welcome. And I agree with the OP on not allowing the 2 cours shows.

Magi should be ineligible since the solicitations point to it being 2-cour. Ace of the Diamond is in a timeslot that practically guarantees it's multicour.

Freezing Vibration is 12 episodes. Valvrave Season 2 is probably 12 as well. Teekyu 3 seems to be 1 cour.
