2013 Anime Mini-Review Festival @

Well, 2013 wasn't the most eventful year for this blog, but I see no reason not to continue with my tradition of summing up the past year's worth of anime in a few sentences each.

Ratings are out of 10, but skewed towards the higher end of the scale because I'm less likely to finish something I don't like.
