My Top 10 (and Worst 5) Anime of 2013

Last year I struggled quite a bit when coming up with my top ten, not because there were so many good shows, but because there was a lack of them. A few times I actually considered making it a top five list instead, but I ended up going through with ten shows in the end.

This year, on the other hand, was difficult for the correct reason. There are a lot of shows I feel deserve a spot in my top ten but I just couldn’t fit them in, but that is sort of the point of making a top ten, isn’t it? If it’s easy to pick them then what’s even the point?

The rule is the same, simple one as usual: the show needed to end at some point in 2013. That means shows that are still airing are not eligible (though I’m sure plenty of people will still ask “WHERE’S KILL LA KILL?!”), but shows that started in late 2012 and didn’t finish until 2013 are eligible. With that in mind, let’s get this list started, shall we?

My sleep schedule is getting so screwed up. I try not to sleep during the day, but I’m just exhausted by the end of my classes for the day. Next thing I know, I’m waking up at 4:00am.

There’s a lesson to be learned here: 7:30am classes suck ass. Never take them.

Current Thoughts on Summer Shows

Well, before I start with anything, I should say that I actually had an idea for a different post that was actually quite brilliant. So brilliant, that it was going to be a regular segment-like thing for the blog. However, I’m home for the weekend, and I didn’t bring my external hard drive with me. GUESS WHERE ALL MY ANIME IS STORED?

But that’s okay, I decided to write about my thoughts on currently airing shows which are also coming to a close pretty soon. My next post will be the original idea I had since I’ll be back at my dorm by then. Heck, maybe I’ll even write it earlier than I would for a next post. (Except we all know I won’t.)

Anyways, due to not having access to my shows, there won’t be any pictures for this post. But that’s fine, considering I’d just use one as a header for the show, kinda like what I did with my “Preview Bonanza” post.

(EDIT: Obviously I stalled this post for the day so I could actually add in the pictures)

Summer Preview Post Bonanza (1 Post; 10 Shows)

Rather than dribbling posts out slowly for the shows that still need Preview posts, I figured to just do one giant one. While that means each show will be getting a bit smaller amount of text than usual, I’ll still say whatever I need to say, so there’s not much to really be missing out on.

I’ll also try and get editorials out at the usual rate for mid-season (one every two or three days) since I’m basically reviving, per se. Then again, college starts up soon, so that in addition to work may cause me some trouble shifting my timetable around again.

But hey, that just means that from this point on, I can only have more free time to write stuff, right? Whether it’s the weekend or (hopefully not) getting fired from work, those times will make me feel like I have all the time in the world.

Enough with the yammering, though. Lets get on with the show.
