Oh good this is still going on. I feared this stopped because I never saw the results thread for the Spring awards, so I thought you stopped doing this.

I refuse to acknowledge "cour" as a legitimate part of the anime lexicon.

Season, people. Already got a word that works already.............

A cour = 12-13 week block for TV scheduling, a season of an anime can be 2-4 times that in length or more.

Otherwise we'd end up with sentences like "This season is two seasons long and it ends this season."

Up first, my own stuff:
Biggest Surprise: Blade Dance (I thought this was going to be a cheesy rip off of Infinite Stratos and Walkure Romanze. Nope)
Best First Impression: Glasslip and The Irregular at Magic High School Tied.
Best Ending: Blue Spring Ride
Best Concept: Rail Wars

Alright, the bronze medals:

Best Story: Rail Wars! (Yank the oversize breasts and this would be second place)
Best Animation: The Irregular at Magic High School (shortened to IMHS for later use) (While not top notch, still very visually appealing)
Best OP: Jinsei - Dekoboko Kaiketsu Sensation by Ayame Tajiri and Yurika Takahashi (One of the only three worth downloading, but still quite good)
Best ED: Only one was any good, so no third place here.
Best Action: Blade Dance (I only watched three eligibles so I was fairly limited. Even so this one wasn't bad)
Best Adventure: Only watched one.
Best Comedy: Glasslip (Had its moments for comedy)
Best Drama: Rail Wars! (The drama was great, until it turned into a harem)
Best Fantasy: Glasslip (REALLY hard to understand the fantasy aspect, but overall rating gives this bronze)
Best Harem: Blade Dance. WAY too many tsundere.
Best Romance: Rail Wars! (Desperation choice really)
Best Sci-Fi: Only watched one.
Best Slice of Life: Jinsei (Again, desperation choice)
Best Male Character: Wow, the guys suck this season. I'm going with SAO's Kazuto Kirigaya (While acting girly, "Cheer for me, Okay?" I laughed hard.)
Best Female Character: Erika Chiba of IMHS (A red-head [like me] with her own charm)
Best of Spring 2014: The Irregular at Magic High School (a fantastic way to combine Sci-Fi with Fantasy without one looking more clunky than the other)

In second place:

Best Story: Glasslip (P.A. Works always brings extremely high quality everything. The future fragment thing was a little confusing, which is why it's second)
Best Animation: Free Eternal Summer (Kyoto Animation always delivers)
Best OP: Natsu no Hi to Kimi no Koe by ChouCho from Glasslip (Ray could have done better I think, but it's still awesome)
Best ED: Don't bother.
Best Action: Rail Wars! (No, I am not talking about the breasts. The action packed scenes were well executed)
Best Adventure: Pass
Best Comedy: Majimoji Rurumo (not bad, but still got a ways to go)
Best Drama: Blue Spring Ride (Close call between this and first place)
Best Fantasy: IMHS (merging it with Sci-Fi)
Best Harem: Rail Wars! (Slightly better than Blade Dance thanks to more diverse personalities)
Best Romance: Glasslip (P.A. Works doesn't fail)
Best Sci-Fi: Skip
Best Slice of Life: Glasslip (This ALMOST got first. I gave it second only because of the supernatural element. So minor)
Best Male Character: Kou Mabuchi of Blue Spring Ride (Male Tsundere!)
Best Female Character: Rurumo from Majimoji Rurumo (Adorable. The end)
Best of Spring 2014: Glasslip (P.A. Works delivers again. The only things keeping it from first place was the minor detail of the Slice of Life and the future fragment thing being a little confusing)

Now, the moment everyone has been waiting for - The official votes:

Best Story: Blue Spring Ride (Such touching characters)
Best Animation: Glasslip (P.A. Works is the only one that can beat Kyoto Animation in visual appeal. This was no exception)
Best OP: Mukai Kaze ni Utarenagara by Minori Chihara for Rail Wars! (Why did such an awesome song get wasted on such a subpar anime?)
Best ED: Toumei no Sekai by nano.RIPE for Glasslip (This would have been better with a different vocalist)
Best Action: IMHS (Well animated and planned with an awesome concept)
Best Adventure: Blade Dance (the only one I watched)
Best Comedy: Blue Spring Ride (Now THIS was truly funny)
Best Drama: Glasslip (It wouldn't be P.A. Works without drama)
Best Fantasy: Majimoji Rurumo (Fascinating reworking of classic concepts)
Best Harem: IMHS (This was done very well by not focusing heavily on the harem)
Best Romance: Blue Spring Ride (Awww...)
Best Sci-Fi: IMHS (While the only one I watched, pairing it with the Fantasy aspect was very well done)
Best Slice of Life: Blue Spring Ride (But only just. I wanted to call this a tie with Glasslip, but I already said why it isn't)
Best Male Character: Tatsuya Shiba of IMHS (Kind of like Tomoya Okazaki. Both can say crazy things with a straight face)
Best Female Character: Hina Fukami of Glasslip (forget that imouto from K-On, Hina is the best little sister ever)
Best of Spring 2014: Blue Spring Ride (An awesome story with a wide array of very different characters.)

Wow, this year's selection of Summer anime kind of sucked. They were few in number and only two are worth buying on DVD. At least the Fall season is coming up, and Fall always brings a large number of high quality stuff.
