Well, now I have to remember what played this year...
Will probably rearrange this as stuff finishes up and if I get around to watching some of the Funimation/Neflix stuff.
1. Shingeki no Bahamut: Gensis
5. RWBY (technically not anime, but it's going here anyways)
6. Log Horizon
8. Sailor Moon Crystal
10. Fate/Stay Night UBW
Favorite scene: Corgi missile of doom taking out mechs is sort of hard to beat.
Biggest surprise: a show based on a virtual card game is awesome? o_O How?
Miss Kobayashi's Starving Child - cafeange.blogspot.com
Sento for President
Hmm... Let's see how far I can get in my list...
1) Hunter X Hunter
2) The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
3) One Week Friends
4) Tonari no Seki-kun
5) No Game No Life
8) Amagi Brilliant Park
9) Love, Chunibyo & Other Delusions
10) Seitokai Yakuindomo
Biggest Surprise: The Kawai Complex Guide to Manors and Hostel Behavior
Best Scene: (HxH)
Chimera Ant Palace Assault- I know this isn't really a scene, it lasts longer than most anime, but this entire part of HxH does so many things right.
Edit: Had to restructure the post due to revelations I came upon.
(Further revisions may come at a later time)
Thugs will be Die-jo-bu
I've possibly watched more anime in 2014 than the preview few years combined. Making a top 10 might be difficult
Ranking might change at any time
1. Rage of the Bahamut Genesis
3. Fate Stay Night
5. Jojo's Bizarre Adventure: Stardust Crusaders
6. Log Horizon
7. Terror in Resonance
8. Space Dandy
9. Ping Pong the Animation
Shirobako and Your Lie in April are honorable mentions
Best Surprise: Bahamut, no doubt about it
Best Short: Tonari no Seki-kun
Best Scene: Too many to pick only one
I am Like a Star, a Dying Star- twitch.tv/yandighandi
In no particular order
2. Space Dandy
3. Grisaia no Kajitsu
4. Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works
5. Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya
5. Brynhildr in the Darkness
7. Akame ga Kill!
9. Terror in Resonance
Waiting for WW3.
I haven't watched a lot of this year's anime yet so it's hard to say.
I'm pretty sure Shirobako, Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun and Mushi-shi would be up there (Monthly Girls Nozaki Kun most likely being first). Is The Order A Rabbit? was good too and I'd be tempted to sneak in Tonari No Seki-kun. Would have to think about the rest and watch some more shows before finalising a list.
All systems nominal.
1) Witch Craft Works
2) Captain Earth
3) Space Dandy
4) Fate/kaleid liner Prisma Illya 2wei! (second season)
5) Tokyo Ghoul
6) The Comic Artist and Assistants
7) The Irregular at Magic High School
8) World Conquest Zvezda Plot
9) Log Horizon season 2
10) Fate Stay Night: UBW
Honorable mention (because technically they're not 'anime'): RWBY season 2 and Legend of Korra Books (seasons) 3 & 4
Though considering I tend to be a marathoner I'm not caught up on the newer shows, save a select few.
"...Love is love & it's beautiful no matter where & who you find it with."
I can't conjure up a top 10, but I can make a top 3 for now.
1) No Game No Life
2) Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso
Has everybody forgotten about Barakamon already?
In no order except the top 2. Subject to change.
1. Fate/Stay Night Unlimited Blade Works
2. Hunter x Hunter
4. Mushishi Zoku Shou
5. Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun
7. Silver Spoon 2
8. Kuroshitsuji: Book of Circus
9. Free! Eternal Summer
10. No Game No Life
Favorite Scene: That last scene of the Chimera Ant arc. Damn. And then the last episode had to go back to it.
Biggest surprise: Ping Pong the Animation, Nobunaga Concerto, and Bokurawa Minna Kawaisou. In the case of Ping Pong, I was surprised at how I liked the art style. It didn't feel out of place, and kind of added to my enjoyment of the anime. Nobunaga Concerto was something I watched on a whim. I had no idea what it was about, didn't hear anything about it, didn't know about the CG animation going in. The story and main lead were enough to keep me watching, and the ending is equal (if not better) to aLIEz. Kawai Manor was something I thought was gonna bore me, but it got me shipping Ritsu and Usa so much, it was too cute x)
