    Curious but have you watched Little Busters/Refrain?

    Does that "some people" crowd include me?

    You might want to wait a bit on the Madoka movies - all the new stuff is in the third one and I don't think there's a good quality version available online yet. I caught one of the two screenings held in Vancouver.

    You not watching Monogatari SS reminds me of the rule of thumb that when a video game franchise has a stinker, it's often the game that follows it up which takes the sales hit. Many of the episodes aren't told from Araragi's perspective and I'd cite Nadeko Medusa and Hitagi End in particular as among the best arcs the series has ever had.

    Your list contains some really high profile stuff that I didn't actually finish - Titan (watching with friend who then went overseas, found out when he got back that he had watched a bunch of episodes while travelling), SNAFU, Minami-Ke, and Railgun - though from what I hear I watched all the good parts of Railgun S2. Oh, and Love Live, though you didn't list that.

    I probably shouldn't post a list of what I did complete because some people might make pointed comments about my level of taste.

    I'll make some comments based on your post to Triple R:

    TV shows:
    Shinsekai Yori - no brainer.
    Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo - about as good as Toradora to me. Which means I liked it, but less than what some others did.
    Dansai Bunri no Crime Edge - only saw the first episode and was put off by it lol.
    Uchouten Kazoku - excellent series. Best PAW production since True Tears albeit very different to what they normally do.
    Rozen Maiden: Zuruckspulen - got about halfway and plan to finish it. Probably the best of the Rozen Maiden adaptations as it has a much more sombre tone.
    Watamote - great series. Best awkward "black comedy" since Welcome to the NHK.
    Monogatari Second Season - I'm pretty much done with monogatari franchise atm. Dropped it after Nise and Kuro after it turned into a full out harem.
    White Album 2 - True tears style romance done by a different production team and studio. Loves it to bits. However, lack of production values and "artistic" merit brings it slightly down compared to it and ef tale of memories, which I consider the two giants in seinen romance drama.

    Movies:
    Wolf Children - favourite Hosoda movie. For some reason I love sentimental familial themes even though I'm not a parent or anything.
    Madoka Magica: Rebellion - haven't seen any of the madoka movies actually. I should remedy this.
    Hanasaku Iroha: Home Sweet Home - great movie. spent most of the time on the stuff which made me like the tv series, though I could do less of Yuina being obnoxious and annoying and Nako's kids causing unnecessary drama.

    Interesting list. Mine is here.

    My list tells me that I actually didn't watch much this year

    Director said she's powering up Tamako for the sequel and the PV had a more sombre tone. Enough data for me to make a prediction.

    Shinsekai Yori and Wolf Children (saw it twice, the second time in a theatre since they screened it at the Vancouver Internaitonal Film Festival) are my front runners as well, I think, but I wouldn't give WA2 a clear cut third - see Triple_R's wall for what I loved this year.

    As for the Tamako Market sequel... no comment. I will watch it on the assumption that Tamako herself as a character was pleasant enough to continue on with the series/movie/ova (or whatever it is) even if the plot and rest of the characters suck.

    White Album 2 is my 2nd favourite anime of the year after Shin Sekai Yori. I even rank it above Uchoten Kazoku and Kyousogiga due to genre bias .

    Now excuse me while I watch the last 3 episodes which I haven't yet

    EDIT: Actually make it 3rd. My favorite anime of the year was a movie called Wolf Children which came out on bluray/dvd this year so I count it as this year.

    Remember how I said I thought you'd come around to like Tari Tari in the end, and also sort of predicted Hyouka was going to be good after only one episode aired?

    Based on the available information, I am predicting you will like Tamako Love Story. You heard it hear first.

    Now we just need to wait until however many months after April 26th the Bluray is released to find out if I'm right.

    P.S. Remember how I said I liked White Album 2 but wasn't feeling into it the same way that I got into stuff like EF and True Tears back in the day? I actually did get pretty into it as it went along. Definitely the most True Tears anime since True Tears.
