takanashi_rikka-nibutani_shinka-dekomori_sanae-by-sakura_m_0.png

With the autumn 2012 having drawn to a close, anime fans have had a chance to reflect on which of the season’s offerings had the most impressive or otherwise satisfactory finales – the fact that several of them seemed only to be set-ups for as yet unannounced 2nd seasons notwithstanding.

The ranking:

1. Chuunibyou

2. Sword Art Online

3. Hidamari Sketch Honeycomb

4. Kami-sama Hajimemashita

5. Jormungand

6. K

7. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun

8. BTOOOM!

9. To Love-Ru Darkness

10. Medaka Box Abnormal

    You know, I'd be far more interested in seeing a ranking that weighted based on how many of the top ten shows the people actually watched. It's tiresome to see the most popular show on top simply because, well, it's the only one that most of the voters watched to the end because it was popular in their own little circle.

    In SAOs case it was favorited b/c every single person is a narrow minded punk and jus decide not to criticize it b/c it has decent animation... Its aggravating to say the least...

    well I watched it cause it was animating parts of a novel I like to read.

    Appart from that it did a poor job covering plot holes

    Seriously? The whole self sacrifice ending was "meh" for me, overall the anime itself was good, but seriously, that ending, especially with the way it just abruptly stopped at the end... It leaves many questions unanswered.

    Which is why there is a 2nd season.

    Glad to see Hidamari on the list. Natsume has always resonated with me, and saving her major character/relationship development moments for the final two episodes really ended the season on a strong note, after it seemed to get a little bogged down in the middle (even the Chika episode had been a little disappointing).

    Hopefully the fact that there aren't any OVA episodes this time means that we'll get a couple of TV specials in the fall, as with the first two seasons. It's a cash cow franchise, so I think it's safe to assume we'll get more Hidamari down the road (I expect Shaft will stay with it to the end, whenever that comes).

    1. Chuunibyou
    It was okay, but a little too much crying and pathos.
    2. Sword Art Online
    Good, but kind of predicatable. ALO segment seemed a bit rushed.
    3. Hidamari Sketch Honeycomb
    Agree.
    10. Medaka Box Abnormal
    Huh? It didn't end. How could it be in this list? :)

    Nah, the ending was one of the FEW good points of the second half. I was mildly disappointed that he didn't stab Sugou, but that would've led to some sort of "Shank Art In Jail"m sequel. But still, seeing such a lame and annoying villain get his comeuppance was pretty satisfactory.

    The ending sucked, but the epilogue was redeeming.

    anybody AT ALL got love for the new hayate? i know everyone including myself was let down by the extremely shitty artwork but i stuck through it and the original storyline i thought was excellent and very satisfying, and as a standalone work that ran parallel to the manga i think it delivered.

    (same anonfag, continued)
    in my opinion tsugumi delivered moe-wise and plot-wise, nagi was excellent as a commander who got shit done, the plot with nagi's estranged father shin hayek was great, and i enjoyed how las vegas was clearly modeled after los santos from GTA:SA. aside from the pros, the cons are numerous but i liked it and that's what matters to me.

    People were trolling or didn't watch it, if they are rating BTOOOM as best of anything

    I'm gonna be honest: I only saw one episode of Sword Art Online and dropped it. I dunno, I guess the notion of an MMORPG turned anime to me is just kinda lame.

    . Kami-sama Hajimemashita; Tonari ; BTOOOM! And Medaka

    were all "no endings" being medaka box the worst ending in an 4th wall break with shameless Jump advert

    makes me wonder if the voters actually saw any of the series or they just thought it would be cool to vote for what ever they were following this season

    Tonari needs a second season badly. Wasn't the best but it was pretty enjoyable. Good stuff and the manga has much more to offer for another season.

    I was really disappointed in the end of Jormungand. Turned into a total deus ex machina. The technical aspects of the ending just killed it for me. I loved it up until the second to last episode.

    It feels rushed a bit on the last 2 episodes, but I liked it, Jormungand was awesome and they couldn't possibly show the aftermath of the entire plan in just a few minutes of the last episode. I think it's better to leave it open like they did.

    Yeah, it was badass sure but not good or anything, I didn't find it all that amazing.

    Chu2 and Hyoka were mediocre. Nichijou was decent. Ever since Kyoani made all that money from K-on! it seems like their budget went up but the Kyoani magic went down. Hopefully Tamako Market can redeem themselves.

    I personally enjoyed both Kyo-Ani series this year, while I'm neutral about Chuunibyou, I have no idea where you get the idea that Hyouka was mediocre. Compared to K-ON, it certainly had more plot, and with Gatou Shouji, the author of FMP, in charge of the script, Hyouka actually had quite a lot of depth and subtlety in its character interactions.

    Hyouka sold... Pretty bad for Kyoani, Chounibyou beat it at least and Nichijou sold ridiculously low.

    What? They're willing to have the author of FMP be involved in Hyouka but not animate an another season of FMP? URGH...

    Kyoani's budget went up, but it seems like they're wasting it on risky anime, like Wall Street before the crash. They need to animate FMP and Haruhi dammit.

    Apparently if a KyoAni series sells under 20k per volume, it sells bad.
    Hyouka is selling ~9.5-10k BD/DVDs per volume on average. That's very good.

    Kami-sama Hajimemashita should be the #1. Simple and perfect closing for a show like I haven't seen in years.
