    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

    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.

    A friend of mine likes to joke that anime makers must hate Christmas since they use it a lot for darker episodes and/or climatic fights (such as in Nanoha A's).

    Probably the best use of Christmas in anime that I've seen was in Amagami SS.

    Lovely cosplay pictures by the way. Those are extremely well-made costumes. It looks like it was made out of very good material. The cosplayers did a great job of capturing the look and style of the characters that they're acting as. I have to admit I chuckled at Homura standing behind the Captain America shield.

    It was strange to see a Charlotte/Nagisa taller than Sayaka, and a Mami shorter than Madoka, but aside from that, great cosplays!

    Merry Christmas. I hope it's a mightily mirthful moe-filled time for you and your family and your girlfriend.

    I'm curious - Which anime episodes do you think make the best "Christmas specials" and/or "episodes that happen to take place during Christmas" to watch during this time of year?

    Thanks also for your comments on the theater atmosphere in general. One body pillow isn't too bad, especially for a movie like this (if this was a Ghibli film, I'd be a bit more worried, lol). Glad to hear it had a packed audience (or close to it) and some cosplayers show up. I'm glad that it sounds like you mostly liked the movie.

    My feelings on the third Madoka Magica movie are similar to your own. My long review of it can be found here. More comments in spoiler space below.

    Spoiler for Madoka Magica Movie 3 commentary:


    As for your comments on 2013 anime as a whole, I largely agree. The way I would describe 2013 in anime is that there's great depth, a lot of shows worth watching, a lot of shows that are entertaining and interesting, but there's nothing that impressed me to the extent that the original Madoka Magica TV series or Steins;Gate did. I very much loved Love Live!, and I do think it has very good writing, but I'm not sure I'd call it a masterpiece work (maybe a masterpiece of moe, though, lol).
