The 2013 year of anime was a rather interesting one for me. Reason being that it’s the first full year I’ve spent actually watching episodes of stuff the day the subs come out. It also threatened to be the last one since the start of the year felt so bland to me that I only managed to latch on to a couple of non-sequels that quickly turned out to be pretty sucky as well.

Anyway, enough of that shit, I’ve ordered stuff from this season from the ones love most to the ones I dislike most (dropped stuff isn’t any particular order). Let’s get started.
