Oh and if you find any interesting year end lists on the internet, feel free to post them here too!


Looking forward to see what tickled your fancy this year ;)

My vote goes for Free!...because it was either between that or Shingeki no Kyojin from what I've seen this year. XD


Also, what smiley is ノ( ゜-゜ノ) supposed to be?

¯\_(ツ)_/¯


Whaaaat? I did not know this!

To be fair though, I haven't seen many anime movies this year.

 

That beat out Mardock Scramble, Ghost in the Shell Arise, Madoka, and Steins Gate!!!???!! ....well all my expectations for those movies went to hell.

 

I teared up and got mad feels from Garden of Words but still

post #12 of 34

I dunno Golden Time doesn't hit me with the feels like I was hoping? It's good, just not a fave of mine this year. I tried to cover White Album 2 under reboots but I know what you mean. It's like how Robotics;Notes, Chaos;Head, and Steins;Gate are all in the same world.

 

 

The movie mechgamer123 mentioned, Kotonoha no Niwa was indeed quite good....... uh oh I feel another list coming on!

 

 

Top Movies of 2013 (fan subbed in 2013)

 

1. Kotonoha no Niwa

 

2. Ookami Kodomo no Ame to Yuki

 

3. Fuse Teppou Musume no Torimonochou

Golden Time's themes and everything are VERY hidden.

 

It is on another level. It's much deeper than White Album 2 in terms of how subtle everything is.

 

It does it very similar to Gintama but much much more subtle. Gintama lets you know that its out to make fun of shounen through its parody.

 

Golden Time doesn't ever let you know

Please:

 

Gallilei Donna (the ending was one of the biggest dissapointment this year: awful, pushed and inconsistent with the whole story, I got to say, it has an excellent plot)

 

Shingeki no Kyojin (limbs, limbs everythere...)

 

Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko (funny/weird enough enjoyable)

 

White Album 2 (special mention as the best drama/love story. The ending was well excecuted and closed,)

 

Kyoukai no Kanata (I watched after somebody post it here and it was good)

 

Oreimo S2 (waiting to see the manga ending on anime soon)

 

Valvrave ending saved the story.
