3) Free! Iwatobi Swim Club
4) Kuroko's Basketball
5) Black Butler
6) Soul Eater
7) Fruits Basket

Thats all I can think of for now.

2013 was basically the year I got into anime. Most of the anime I've seen so far I have watched in 2013. The one that impressed me most was Sword Art Online. I'm currently watching Fairy Tail though, which is easily tied with #1 on my list with SAO.

Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet and Psycho Pass. Both amazing works by the Gen and both concluded well enough for me to be happy if that was the their endings. BUT THEY BOTH HAVE SEQUELS COMING.....

I'm going to list a few things or special episodes that I was impressed by, rather than just a list of shows.

Episode-wise:

The first episode of Kotoura-san was incredible. It hit emotional cords in minutes whole series can't in hours.
Episode 18 of Monogatari 2nd Season was really neat, it was told mostly through panning shots of picture scrolls.
The first two story arcs of Sunday Without God (episodes 1-6) were also excellently done.
The two "shock" episodes of Valvrave the Liberator were also well done, although I won't spoil what they are.

Animation-wise:

The animation behind the 3D-maneuver-gear in Attack on Titan was groundbreakingly spectacular.
The work Gohands put into Coppelion is also really great; I just wish the show was better.
The fight in the seventh episode of Yozakura Quartet: Hana no Uta was really awesome to see.
The animation behind the special powers in Beyond the Boundary were also great.

Story concepts I liked:

Unbreakable Machine-Doll, for the backstory and mystery surrounding Magnus.
The world of Sunday Without God felt incredibly refreshing and new while still being relevant.
The imagination behind Kyousougiga was also a joy to see unfold.
I liked how relevant Genshiken Nidaime was, instead of just aiming for useless humor.

Character-wise:

Tsukiko Tsutsukakushi from The Hentai Prince and the Stony Cat. She's like a mini Senjyougahara!
I found both Deishu Kaiki and Izuko Gaen from Monogatari 2nd Season fascinating.
And Hampnie Hambart from Sunday Without God. His character, and the way it was used, was superb.
Also, an obligatory (but not begrudged) hats-off to Chamber from Suisei no Gargantia.

The Severing Crime Edge:

This I want to munch on for a little bit. I think it would've been improved (and made infinitely more marketable) by making the characters older; instead of middle school, have them post-graduation, some mid-college, finding work and finding their way in the world. The setting of the school (and the focal point it acts as in the story) could've been replaced by a small, but wealthy, private company bequeathed to Iwai Mushanokōji. Kiri Haimura takes a semester off and works there.

Everything else unfolds JUST LIKE the story. Replace classmates with workmates and old school friends. But instead of it being a pervy story about middle schoolers with crazy fetishes, you've now got a setting with characters old enough to take it in a more mature direction. Because the story did some decently mature things, and there was a really beautiful love story at the center of it all. But it's just... the ages of the characters were all wrong. They all should've been older.

But anyway. I know it's based on existing source material, so that'd be improbable anyway I guess.
