Nomination Quotes:

Foshizzel – When it comes to the best wingman I have to give it to Orito for being one of the coolest bros to Aikawa even though I think he only hangs out with the main character in hopes of getting closer to the harem of lovely girls!
skylion – Satoshi from Hyouka comes quickly to my mind, as a winger he sometimes flew a bit to close to his lead, but that’s a rainbow database for you. Tetsuro from Ano Natsu advanced the characterization, and provided a calm character who’s heart was still in turmoil, to a perplexed Kaito.
Kaitune – Iskandar is The Best Bro Ever. I like Fate Zero as much as I did purely because of him. (And maybe a bit because of Gil. That guy is just a darn fabulous hedonist.) The Fairies (Jinrui wa Suitai Shimashita): They are so adorably creepy. They are also in the very best episodes of the show too. Or perhaps those episodes were the very best because of them?

Nomination Quotes:

Highway – Oka Ayuko from Nazo no Kanojo X. The person who wormed her way into friendship with Urabe, and became a huge catalyst for Urabe and Tsubaki’s relationship movement. Natsume Asako from Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun. Almost a lead character, Asako had to work through her own friendship issues to try to be a friend to Shizuku, who didn’t really want to have friends.
Foshizzel – I love me some pirates and Hanazawa Kana brings Kurihara Chiaki to life, sure when we first meet Chiaki she comes off as a mean bossy chick, but of course she just wants to push Marika to her full potential as a future space pirate captain!
lvllnUryuu Minene from the great Future Diary was such a badass, managing to survive to the end despite being the 2nd episode villain. And boy did people die easily in that show.
akagamiKyoukai Senjou no Horizon II’s Neito Mitotsudaira: Nate and Tori’s scenes were so cute and fun! Especially when Tori was pampering her after her fight ^^ And her loyalty to Tori (from his classroom promise, damn, I teared up when the whole class sided with Tori as he was walking down the steps in S1). Also, Aoi Kimi is the world strongest dancer!

Nomination Quotes:

Highway – Ousawa Akatsuki from Hagure Yuusha no Sexual Harassment. That they put a guy like him in a series was great. Basically, he couldn’t lose, just so much more powerful than anyone else. Was an awesome way to have the show go.
Akagami – Otonashi Io from Acchi Kocchi: Jumping out of a second floor window and those pen-twirling skills? And he’s a natural lady-killer!
JrowHitoyoshi Zenkichi, a normal dude that can hang with any special or abnormal is cool in my book. Also a male tsundere. And Akatsuki from Hagure Yuusha for being a tough guy and a creative perv (that shower scene). Koyomi from Nisemono primarily for that scene where he breaks free from the handcuffs.

Nomination Quotes:

lvllnNyaruko from Haiyore! Nyaruko-san and Koko Hekmatyar from Jormungand were 2 white-haired beauties who made their shows so much better when taking the spotlight. Can’t forget the title character Mikoto Urabe from Mysterious Girlfriend X. All the comediennes from Joshiraku deserve mention, but I have to highlight Buratei Marii for being the poor butt of every joke, often featuring her butt. Karen Araragi let her brother brush her teeth in Nisemonogatari.
Foshizzel – Rinne no Lagrange fans were treated to a wonderful main character this year named Kyouno Madoka. A girl you could call hyper, crazy, strong and happy all the time, but sometimes her personality got the better of her during mech on mech combat. I can’t mention Madoka without giving a huge shout out to Katou Marika from Mouretsu pirates, at first glace she doesn’t appear to be nothing special, but get her in the captain seat and she will do something amazing!
skylionI just have to put Rikka Takanashi at the top of this list. So much about her is praise-worthy, but I will take her sheer scope of imagination as the best. She’s cute, but her dreams are sweeter. Nyaruko-san could almost win thou sheer genki and exotic food ingredients. But she still has to contend with the awesome that is Captain Marika. Let’s Pirate!

Nomination Quotes:

HighwayTakanashi Rikka and Togashi Yuuta. Even though Yuuta almost blew it, he gathered it back together to make a great save. Two people who really should be together. Tachibana Mei and Kurosawa Yamato, another show where they were a couple the whole series, which gave a great change to the normal shoujo framing of ‘will they get together or won’t they?’ This meant the show could work through the reference frame of “how does a couple deal with setbacks” rather than two people who just want to be a couple.
lvllnKoyomi Araragi & Hitagi Senjougahara from Nisemonogatari is a nice one, though the recent Nekomonogatari might have people wishing for Koyomi Araragi & Tsubasa Hanekawa. Akira Tsubaki & Mikoto Urabe were what drove all of Mysterious Girlfriend X, and they did a wonderful job of carrying an entire series. The wonderfully dysfunctional Yuno & Yuki team/couple was one of the many highlights of Future Diary. And can’t forget Hyouka’s main couple, the entire driver of the show, Eru Chitanda & Houtarou Oreki. Though Satoshi Fukube & Mayaka Ibara were quite cute as well.
KyokaiKoyomi & Senjougahara will remain to be favourite couple but another one that really touched my heart last year was of Rokka and Ryousuke‘s. Love is pretty hard in itself and the dramatic scenarios that played across Natsuyuki Rendezvous, really highlighted their struggle and the weird things people do in love. A really sweet love story.

Nomination Quotes:

GeckoCaster of Fate/Zero. Yuck. Yuck. Yuck. Anyone who kills children just should go be the villain.
FoshizzelLooking at this long list of baddies I don’t think any SAO fan can forget the mentally insane Sugou from ALfhiem Online! Molesting Asuna landed that villain on Kirito’s personal death note and Eureka Seven Ao fans loved to hate on Truth every week, who the hell was that guy? Was he evil or misunderstood? Either way those two baddies were crazy yet entertaining.
lvllnYuno Gasai from Future Diary is a great one. Her tying up Yuki to take care of him was unforgettable. Kaiki Deishuu from Nisemonogatari is sure to be a fan favorite too. Urara, the epic alien fish villain of Tsuritama was lovable, and I loved that his big intro closed out the series. I was also a fan of K‘s antagonist the Colorless King, who proved to be an extremely cunning and resilient foe.
KaituneDeishuu Kaikil is such a perfect villain. It is hard to put in proper word why he is so. How he carry himself. How the whole tone just change when he appears… His evilness almost seem effortless. Sugou is very badly written in the best way possible. Technically, everything he did should fill me with fire of thousand exploding sun, but I can’t stop grinning like an idiot whenever he shows up.
KyokaiA good villain is the one you really hate and though I did mention some good and bad ones from Gintam’, the one that really stands out to me is Kotomine Kirei. Fate/Zero is where we really his transformation from a brooding priest to a voyeuristic sadist who laughs at other people’s agony. Of course, Gilgamesh played a part in the transformation but a darkness was always inside him and by the culmination of Fate/Zero all of us saw it.

  1. skylion says:

    Whoa. There were some squeakers up there.

    A few choices were quite hard to let go of (Sorry, Buratei Marii, Sorry Koko, I loves me some Mitzy-chan and some AKA-RIN! so much more). But then, picking out all the best girls is tough on the Skylion.
    In their categories, you can be sure that Dekomori, Shinka, Richiyo, Oda, and the Ibara’s all got first picks.

  2. skylion says:

    For tops this year, I am glad to see that Io and Tsumiki got nommed. (NOM NOM NOM). Wait, that makes it sound like we ate them like we would a delicious cake. NOM NOM NOM. But my highest regards to to Yuuta and Rikka….I’ve said plenty about Chu2Koi already in the past, so let that be record.

  3. skylion says:

    But it looks like Rikka is busting out the ultimate moves on all the other ladies. They can’t takes her Kanttwinkle! Don’t let me down guys. This chuuni needs your support.

    • BlackBriar says:

      But Chitanda Eru is ahead of her and Koko Hekmatyar, Saber, Yuuki Asuna and Senjougahara Hitagi are giving her a fierce run for her money. This Chuunibyou is being surrounded by heavyweight contenders on all sides like a pack of lions on a single antelope. It’s pure overkill.

  4. skylion says:

    There is so much to mention, so I will just leave off with praise for the 2012 Year of the Loli, Loli of the Year Winner. Shinobu Oshino.

    Oh, and Nylarko…..Kirito, and uh so many more. Geez this stuff is tough!

    • BlackBriar says:

      She’s vampire first, loli second. Shinobu for the win!!!

      • skylion says:

        She’s a what first?

        • BlackBriar says:

          A vampire (You already know that, you sly old fox). And an adorably cute one at that. The Vampire Lover has spoken!!

          • skylion says:

            Oh, I’m not challenging her blood linage, just that you put it bloody first. She is a loli first, and you know that….:-)

            • Highway says:

              I’m with skylion here. She *was* a vampire first, then she turned into a loli who is a vampire.

            • BlackBriar says:

              Touché!! I concede victory to you, Motherfoshing Gandalf, expert of lolis.

  5. Highway says:

    I think I only used all 7 selections in one category. The rest either had a group so far ahead that the rest didn’t measure up, or I didn’t have anyone to vote for (honestly, I can’t vote for Noumi or Sugou, and I don’t really know that Akihiko was a villain, and I don’t know really about any of the rest).

  6. belatkuro says:

    Kotomine is a different type of villain though so it’s kind of wrong to group him with the others, especially the likes of Sugou and Noumi.
    And Kayaba isn’t a villian per se but that’s debatable.
    And lol, Kumogawa only appeared for an episode and a pinch and he was already nominated? Uh, okay.

  7. tatsuya says:

    tough vote ever ~~since it ‘s got yuru yuri ,dark vader,heartseed and lots of nisemonogatari ~~..i can’t believe Chuunibyou demo Koi ga Shitai is winning right now ~~well vote ..(still think’s toshino kyouko is the best and akari…~~)

  11. Blubbly says:

    I’m perplexed as to why Sentarou is even listed in the male lead category. The story was always told from Bon’s point of view, and it centered around him as well. Shouldn’t Kaoru then be nominated instead of Sentarou?

    • Foshizzel says:

      True it is strange, but these choices were based on fan picks and some of the Metanorn staff.

    • Kyokai says:

      The main trio: Sentarou, Kaoru and Ritsuko are the main cast of Sakamichi no Apollon and the reason Sen is on the poll. You can check MAL/ANN for it.

  12. No Dio Brando for best villain? List is invalid :P

    • Kyokai says:

      Originally I nominated him but then, JoJo is still airing so can’t add. Sigh.

      • Foshizzel says:

        Next time and Jojo will win every award ;)

        • BlackBriar says:

          No, wrong, Fosh. Jojo won’t win all the awards You’ve forgotten that when this year’s over, there’ll be another contender for best villain and I’m already rooting for him. He goes by the name Shougo Makishima.

  13. skylion says:

    There needs to be more Chuuni love here folks. Your duty is clear.
