Biggest Surprise of the Year
Campione: turned into quite the awesome fighting show, dang near won my show of the year. Plus the lead of a harem became a bad a** when was the last time was saw that.
Runner Up: The answer to the mystery in Another
Phi-Brain season 2: took out all the humor and made Kaito way to much of a focus. Do anyone remember living through the Naruto fillers, Phi Brain's second season was like that
Opening of the year
Kids on the Slope: Not a big surprise the show is based off of music.
Episode 3 is when anime change tone "shocker"
Another: Turned into quite the violent sick show didn't it
Best scene of the year
Humanity has Declined: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=42u4ytkzAWw
Sequel and series of the year!!!!
Natsume Yuujinchou Shi: Natsume has never failed to deliver and season 4 was more of the same. I am glad to see this show somehow get 4 seasons and 52 episodes. I know I am greedy but I do want more.
Best show I bought this year
Anohana: Favorite show of the last 5 years came out thanks to NIS America, and I did not have to pay 225 dollars to buy iy unlike my second favorite show of the last 5 years that also came out this past year.
Prediction for best show of 2013
Chihayafuru season 2 has the inside track but keep an eye out for some unannounced sequel that will shock me, most likely Infinite Stratos season 2, dark horse, Haruhi season 3.
