Now that we’ve moved into 2014, let’s look back on the past year.
Only shows that finished in 2013 are eligible. (So Kill la Kill is not.)
All the music sucked this year except for Shin Sekai Yori and AKB0048, and the latter is only because they brainwashed me. Actually Kyoukai no Konata and Tamako Market had okay music too from what I recall. But the point is, J-Pop sucks.
Little Busters — All Females Except Rin. Ugh I hated this show.
Maouyuu Maou Yuusha — Stupid Maid. That speech was so bad.
Robotics; Notes — Kai. Ugh.
Sakurasou — Mashiro. So annoying. Like dating a three year old.
Devil Survivor 2 — Every single fucking character.
Oreimo — Ayase. She used to be the best character (not that that’s saying much for Oreimo) but then they completely ruined her.
Suisei no Gargantia — Amy. Talk about a useless main character.
Date a Live — Tohsaka. It’s saying quite a bit when the loli isn’t the worst character in the show.
Crime Edge — Main Girl. It’s just disappointing when the show was filled with so many awesome crazies and the main love interest is so normal.
Dog and Scissors — Everybody. Especially the main girl because she showed up the most.
Kamisama no Inai — Scar and Old Guy. Had cool backstories but ended up as babysitters. Literally.
The final entry in my 2012 Year in Review. Previously we discussed music and characters. This time, I’ve gone ahead and ranked all the anime of 2012 from worst to best (loosely). This list only includes shows that have finished.
It’s nice to look back occasionally and look at the previous year. How was 2011 in terms of anime?
Most Pleasant Surprise
Oretachi ni Tsubasa wa Nai After the first episode’s panty flash from a little girl, I dropped the show and didn’t finish the episode. A few weeks later, I decided to give it another shot, and was pleasantly surprised. It’s setup with the “three” main characters gives a unique and much needed twist to the harem genre. Its jokes can be fairly witty, and the characters are not your straight-up harem tropes. And it’s pretty fun trying to figure out what’s going on. Continue reading 2011: A Year in Review→
