So the Award Show just went with whatever's popular.
Kinda reminds me of the Grammys.

Uchuu Kyoudai isn't really popular though.
Yes it is. It's got high tv ratings and even got a live action movie.

Oops forgot about that. Ignore my post. LOL I keep on thinking of its non-Japan fanbase which isn't that large.

Never thought that SnK's music was particularly outstanding though. Time for a re-listen...


Agreed. It had a nice overall sound, even though individual tracks didn't really stand out.

I expected SnK to be there. But 4 times is even better. It deserves it.

How did Shingeki no Kyojin, with its dragging out unnecessary scenes, beat Masoka Magica?


Maybe I didn't quite dislike those unnecessary scenes. I know it tends to drag out the show a lot, and it's understandable to dislike or hate those scenes, but it just shows how good the show really was in the scenes that count. I loved the parts where the suspense builds and builds and then... it's released. It's easy to hate on a show that has a lot of good points and then some bad ones. Maybe I just developed a high tolerance from watching a lot of shows, too. To each their own.

SNK was awesome, was a nay sayer until I finished it, but its hard to find an anime similar to it. So far I have only come up with Claymore, Gantz, and Ergo Proxy. Only thing I fault it for is the god awful pacing and the amount of still pictures.

Man what is with the hate with AoT lol it was actually great, even though I am more in to seinen and I really not in to shounen's that much (only a handful) but it was good, story/music/animation and some of the character was solid. But to each their own.

AoT wasn't my favorite anime for 2013 and fall-winter, but I can't lie that it was great.

AoT wins everything so this isn't a surprise.

AoT still winning, yay!

No surprise that AOT won, t'was a great anime.

Dat Hideaki Anno lol

Agree that AoT is way overhyped. The only thing it really deserved was the music award, and I still gotta say Aot is not Sawano's best work (that honor still belongs to Guilty Crown).

Since the nominees didn't have to be anime that started in 2013 (as evidenced by Space Bros. entry) I have to ask HOW THE HELL did Psycho-Pass not get considered for anything at all.


You forgot to put in your opinion at the end.
