And you missed at least one show I think: Golden Time

And Tonari no Seki Kun may also be 2-cour into spring; it is 21 episodes though we aren't sure if the last few will be on TV and thus on Crunchyroll or not.


Seki-kun and Nisekoi are both oddities. They have essentially 1.5 cours........
Indeed so they should be in the same category at least! Or their own...

I think it's 13 episodes running for this season. The rest are released as separate from DVDs.

Well, with this season now featuring what is now my favorite anime series, I will be doing 3rd first, then second place, and the last set of votes will be the first place that will go toward the totals.
But first, I will be doing the bonus categories:
Best Soundtrack:
1. Log Horizon
2. Magical Warfare
3. Strike the Blood
Biggest Surprise:
1. Strike the Blood
2. Pilot's Love Song
3. Magical Warfare
Best Episode:
1. Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb Episode 6 (Rikka gave Yuta a certain something)
2. Golden Time episode 18 (the dodge ball scene was awesome)
3. Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb Episode 7 (Rikka's closing statement)
Best Character Pairing (Romantic):
1. Yuta Togashi and Rikka Takanashi from Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (the cutest couple EVER!!!)
2. Tsumugu Kihara and Chisaki Hiradaira from Nagi no Asukara (Episode 23 shows just how much of a smooth talker Tsumugu is)
3. Kaname Isaki and Sayu Hisanuma (I really find this one to be quite cute)
Best Character Pairing (Non-Romantic):
1. Shinka Nibutani and Sanae Dekomori from Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (They make a hilarious pair)
2. Taketoshi Tsuda and Shino Amakusa from Seitokai Yakuindomo (Tsuda could be paired with anyone for amusing results)
3. Naotsugu and Akutsuki from Log Horizon (These two side by side always end up amazing)

Now, the real deal stuff, starting with 3rd place:
Best Story: Strike the Blood (stereotypical harem and ecchi aside, the story was quite compelling)
Best Animation: Saki: The Nationals (Definitely very eye catching and colorful as well)
Best OP: Nagi no Asukara for Ebb and Flow (I like the soothing feel of the song)
Best ED: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb for Van!shment this World (Not amazing, but I liked it better than the rest)
Best Action: Tokyo Ravens (Third place for this category is tough)
Best Comedy: Golden Time (Linda taking a headshot during dodgeball made me pause the episode. Of course, there is plenty more humor in this one)
Best Drama: Golden Time (Can't really explain)
Best Fantasy: Log Horizon (I've noticed that this is based on a MMO game with action and there is more story to it. I like it. It's less simple than a certain anime based on MMO games that aired a couple years ago [SAO] with the whole death scenario)
Best Harem: Nagi no Asukara (the Harem wasn't so great, so I just chose my third favorite with Harem involved)
Best Romance: Golden Time (no relationship is simple)
Best Slice of Life: Seitokai Yakuindomo (Complete hilarity. Pure awesomeness)
Best Short Series: Didn't Watch Any
Best Male Character: Taketoshi Tsuda (Seitokai Yakuindomo) (His remarks are typically funnier than the sex-related lines most of the time)
Best Female Character: Yukina Himeragi (Strike the Blood) (At long last: A main character who's primary weapon is a spear and not a sword!)
Best of Winter 2014: Golden Time (A complex yet easy to understand plot with good quality humor)

2nd Place:

Best Story: Golden Time (The plot twists and turns more than earphone cables in your pocket)
Best Animation: Nagi no Asukara (The fluid and colorful visuals ALMOST made it number one. Almost)
Best OP: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb for VOICE (a huge upgrade from the first season's opening)
Best ED: Pilot's Love Song for Kaze ga Shiterru (There is this psychological pressure that this song has that is quite enticing)
Best Action: Magical Warfare (Very fluid and easy to follow battle sequences without battles being overly drawn out)
Best Comedy: Seitokai Yakuindomo ("OH MY GOD!!! SPOTTED D**K!!!" Also, the scene on the plane in episode one was just incredible)
Best Drama: Nagi no Asukara (The complex relationship web is incredible)
Best Fantasy: Magical Warfare (Same reason as why it gets silver for action)
Best Harem: Tokyo Ravens (pure overall preference put this in second)
Best Romance: Nagi no Asukara (Time gives the romance a unique twist)
Best Slice of Life: Golden Time (Not a Non Non Biyori style Slice of Life, but still a great one)
Best Male Character: Shiroe of Log Horizon (Not an inhumane genius for once!!)
Best Female Character: Akutsuki of Log Horizon (Her shyness is endearing)
Best of Winter 2014: Nagi no Asukara (A very one-of-a-kind anime that is hard not to get attached to. Easily a heavy hitter)

Now, the gold medals. You might notice a trend.

Best Story: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Animation: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (First of all, it's Kyoto Animation: The Champion of Visual Appeal. Second, the reality bending visuals make this stunning)
Best OP: Strike the Blood for Fight 4 Real (Not quite as good as the first opening song, but easily the best this season)
Best ED: Magical Warfare for Born to Be (The song is just unexplainably awesome)
Best Action: Strike the Blood (The action sequences, combined with Himeragi using a spear and Kojo's familiar summoning, makes this the winner)
Best Comedy: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Drama: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Fantasy: Strike the Blood (My overall favorite with the Fantasy genre this season)
Best Harem: Strike the Blood (My overall favorite with the Harem genre this season)
Best Romance: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Slice of Life: Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Male Character: Yuta Togashi from Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (Reason shown at the bottom of post)
Best Female Character: Rikka Takanashi from Love, Chuunibyou, and other Delusions - Heart Throb (In addition to the reasons shown at the bottom of this post, Rikka was already my favorite anime character of all time, so she pretty much won automatically)
Best of Winter 2014: Love, Chuunibyou, and Other Delusions - Heart Throb (Like nobody saw that coming. Reason below)

Anime without awards that were watched:
Wizard Barristers - not as impressed
No-Rin - WAY below my expectations, but still pretty good. Didn't expect it to be so much slapstick-style comedy though.

Love, Chuunibyou, and Other Delusions - Heart Throb became my favorite anime of all time and Chuunibyou became my favorite anime series of all time as well. Now, I could discuss how the animation was amazing, you get attached to the characters, the plot was great, and so on. But the reason this became my favorite is quite personal.
The reason why I love this anime so much on a personal level is because of perspective. Because this is the internet, I won't go much further. What would have been a very mundane and stereotypical love story is twisted by the perspectives of not only Yuta and Rikka as they fulfill their Lover's Contract, but by Shinka, Sanae, Kumin, and Satone.
The second season was labeled "Heart Throb" and it did that to my heart and then some. In my opinion, Love, Chuunibyou, and Other Delusions - Heart Throb is one of the greatest love stories of all time.

There are two bonus episodes, one on each DVD that say they will not be broadcast on TV but it doesn't say the other 8 episodes WON'T be broadcast. Perhaps just on Nico nico or something?

Official website:
14話、15話はネット配信のため、テレビでは見ることができず
Ep. 14 and ep. 15 can't be watched on TV, but on online distribution.

Online shop:
携帯配信 & PC配信ではテレビ東京にて放送された13話を含む全21話を配信
All the 21 episodes are going to distribute on cell/PC.

I suppose that the streaming sites are put on the official website, e.g., GyaO!, dビデオpowered by BeeTV, UULA, and あにてれしあたー.

Not eligible for the following categories(Best Story, Best Action, Best Comedy, Best Slice of Life, Best Drama, Best Romance, Best Short Series, Best Adventure, Best Fantasy, Best Science Fiction and Best of Winter 2014.)
