I really appreciated Shin Sekai Yori and it was among my favourites of the year, but it took some votes from me that I wouldn't have given if I had the chance. To me SSY was the best fantasy and best mistery. In the other categories where I voted it (including best storyline, which I would have awarded to Railgun S for the fantastic Sisters' Arc, and best tv series since as I stated that was Chihayafuru 2 in my book) I didn't consider it the best option.
I had to make a lot of compromises for those votes. For example, in the action category my pick was Shingeki no Kyojin, but since there was no Railgun (on my top 3 of the year) in sci-fi I voted it there. Similarly, I had to vote for Sakurasou in romance otherwise it wouldn't have had any votes from me. Drama was taken by Chihayafuru (my overall favourite series of 2013) since it was the only category where it could be voted.
