Honorable Mention(s): That Best Male Character category was tough. There were a lot of good male characters last year and I couldn't include them all so here's a few other standouts for me: Ken Kaneki (Tokyo Ghoul), Nanba Mutta (Space Brothers) - one of the best male characters in anime in my opinion, probably didn't make my cut since the episodes of Space Bros that aired in 2014 were Hibito focused, Joseph Joestar (Jojo), Kid/Kaito (Magic Kaito), Eiichiro Maruo (Baby Steps), Yugo Hachiken (Silver Spoon 2), Smile/Peco/Kong (Ping Pong the Animation), Shinichi Izumi (Parasyte), etc.

Best Female Character wasn't as tough, although that #3 spot was a difficult decision to me. Anyways, like to mention a few others that really stood out for me - Enju Aihara (Black Bullet), Yona (Yona of the Dawn), Nike Remercier (The World is Still Beautiful), Rin Hoshizora (Love Live! 2), Seo Yuzuki (Nozaki-kun), Sento Isuzu (Amagi Brilliant Park), Ange (Cross Ange), Kaori Fujimiya (One Week Friends), Erika Shinohara (Wofl Girl and Black Prince), Kurumi Tokisaki (Date A Live), etc.

Yeah, I guess I kind of let my Nagi-Asu bias run wild here, but I can't really help it when the anime means as much to me as it does.

As usual, I don't nominate characters from sequels for Best Male/Female Character because I'm stubborn and weird, hence the lack of Love Live characters (one or two of them would be in my top 3 if not for my self-imposed restriction).

And I guess I'll just say that I expect NGNL and F/S N to dominate these awards, but I can think of a few other shows (Bahamut, KlK, Terror, Barakamon, Nozaki) that could give them some competition. I very much look forward to seeing how things play out.

Okay, first (so that I can keep track), the anime I watched from this past year.


Categories

Best Story
1) Terror in Resonance (Zankyou no Terror)
2) Psycho-Pass 2
3) Sword Art Online II - I actually had this first in my Fall 2014 Awards entry, but I switched it with Psycho-Pass 2 after thinking about it more.

Best Animation
1) Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works
2) Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea (Nagi no Asukara)
3) Nisekoi

Best Character Design (How the characters looked; hair, eyes, clothes etc.)
1) Monthly Girls' Nozaki-kun (Gekkan Shoujo Nozaki-kun)
2) Shirobako
3) Glasslip

Best OP

Best ED
1) Sabagebu! - ED
2) Sword Art Online II - ED 1
3) Terror in Resonance (Zankyou no Terror) - ED

Best OST (Original Soundtrack)
N/A - I normally don't pay enough attention to the OST to be able to make such a judgment. As long as it's doing its job, I may not give a thought to remembering what song is playing in the background.

Best Action
1) Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works
2) Aldnoah Zero
3) Psycho-Pass 2

Best Adventure

2) Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea (Nagi no Asukara)
3) Golden Time

Best Ecchi Series
1) SoniAni: Super Sonico The Animation - Does this really qualify as an ecchi? There wasn't that much fanservice, especially given the source material, for a series labeled here as an "ecchi".

Best Fantasy
1) Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works
2) Nagi-Asu: A Lull in the Sea (Nagi no Asukara)
3) Sword Art Online II

Biggest Surprise of 2014
1) Sabagebu!
2) Your lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso)
3) SoniAni: Super Sonico The Animation

Biggest Let Down (Disappointment) of 2014
1) Glasslip - In regards to anime which I was initially really looking forward to, this anime is easily one of my biggest disappointments ever. Visually, it was pretty, as expected, and some of the characters were likeable, but that's about it.
2) Magical Warfare (Mahou Sensou) - This might have been the worst series I completed from this past year. It had an okay start, but it just went downhill after that.
3) Tokyo ESP - I actually had this rated at the top of the anime I was simulcasting when it first started airing, but by the end it was just a good or okay series.

Must Watch of 2014 (think of it like if there was 1 anime you had to watch from 2013 it would be...)
Same as the following...

Best of 2014!
1) Fate/stay night: Unlimited Blade Works
2) Your lie in April (Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso)
3) Nisekoi

This is going to be incredibly easy for me, cause when I made an article about all of my favorites from 2014, I listed exactly 3 series for each category (the "winner" and two runner ups). My votes will be in the order of 1, 2, and 3. So the first show listed is my #1 vote, the second #2, etc. That being said, I am NOT going to be voting for series from the Fall 2014 season that are still going this season, simply because I have to do a cut off somewhere, and since those shows haven't even finished a season yet(not a season, not strictly a cour, basically there hasn't been a one cour gap between the cours/seasons in these shows), they are left out. It just isn't right to vote for shows that are still going. I'll vote for them next year.
