2013 Anime / Manga / Visual Novel Awards

Before reading, please keep in mind that this is just my personal list, so don’t get angry when I’m not naming your own favorites in this entry.

Also I think this is a pretty random list, since I just posted something similar to this in my “My Personal Highlights of 2013” entry some time ago.
Still, even though I will repeat a lot of what has already been said, there are quite a few new aspects I want to name in this one as well.
I think I’ll do something similar to this at the end of every year from now on, but let’s just see about that. For now, enjoy the list~

Best Yuri Anime: Shinsekai Yori
I know, I know, Shinsekai Yori is not a real yuri anime, but I guess we are kind of short on pure yuri shows this year, so I have no other choice.

My Personal Highlights of 2013

Since it’s the end of the year already, I thought it would be a good idea to just list my personal highlights of 2013 and kind of draw a final conclusion to see how “successful” this year has been for us yuri fans.

So first of all, let’s start with anime.
I think everyone will agree with me when I say that 2013 has been the year of Shingeki no Kyojin.
I have to be honest and tell you that I’m usually neither up to date with seasonal anime releases, nor do I pay attention to what shows are the most popular.
However, there was one anime this year that I could not miss simply because of its huge fandom, and I’m really happy I actually did take the time to see why everyone was going crazy about it.
Shingeki no Kyojin was without a doubt the most anticipated as well as successful anime of 2013 and I have to agree, it’s a fantastic show with a freaking awesome story. It is also one of the only (non-yuri) manga I’ve read in a long time and it’s even one of my favorites right now, which is so rare since I usually only read yuri stuff.

Well, other than the manga and anime, especially the yuri pairing YumiKuri (Ymir x Christa) has gained a lot of popularity this year. There are already tons of doujinshi, fanfics and even short animated clips of them out. And since I’m up to date with the manga, I can safely assume that the fandom won’t just stop here, but rather grow even bigger.
But since I don’t want to spoil you guys, let’s just end it here and come to another highlight that happened at the end of the year, not too long ago.
The news of the 3rd Madoka Magica movie had been around for a while and in October the movie was finally released in Japan, while some other countries had to wait until December to finally watch it.

A few more edits


This time, I only got a few short-strips for you, and I’m also not quite sure if some of them haven’t already been done by someone else… . It’s kind of hard to keep track of it, especially when it comes to short-strips.

Anyway, I hope you’ll enjoy these few edits~

Anime Review: Shingeki no Kyojin

shingeki no kyojin

Yes, I know. This is not a yuri show in the slightest, yet I still feel like posting a review about it, simply because it’s so awesome. This is only going to be a review of the 10 or so episodes that have already aired (not about the manga), so, obviously, this isn’t going to be a full review of this story, but since the manga lets us predict that this show will be around for quite a while, I thought why not share with you what I already have to say about this anime?

A few more edits

What I have for you this time, is a Touhou doujin, a Mahou Shoujo Madoka Magica doujin and a few Shingeki no Kyojin short strips.

Hope you enjoy~
Who’s the culprit I wonder…
A 7 page long doujin about Alice receiving some kiss marks.

Pairing: Alice x Marisa/Reimu/Yuuka/Patchouli/Sakuya (Touhou)

My first attempts at editing

So after visiting various pages and reading some tutorials on how to edit manga, I’ve decided to try it out myself.

In this case with some short-strips and pictures I found on danbooru. I know there are other people doing the same thing right now, just like: http://lazyedits.wordpress.com/
But since there are so many nice pictures and short-strips floating around the internet, why not edit some more for you?
These are my first attempts at editing, so don’t expect too much. If you guys like them, please let me know. I guess I’ll post some more soon, since working with them was fun, even though I had some moments in which I wanted to smash my laptop against the wall …
And just in case I haven’t made it clear enough already, I didn’t translate these pictures. I found all the translations on danbooru. All I did was editing the pictures. So I’m not sure whether the translations are 100% correct. There are also some pictures with some untranslated Japanese words left. But I think that’s no big deal, since all of them are either short words or sounds, which are not necessary to understand the content.
Find the download links to all the pictures and short-strips at the bottom.
