Attack on Titan's ost is truly one of the best since Guilty Crown. Nary a dull song on the soundtracks.
For some reason there are most obvious winners that I could predict even before this award started , nonetheless Misaka won Best Lead Female, so I couldn't complain anything, really.
I expected Shingeki no Kyojin to win favorite animation. I think it deserved too. Best soundtrack and animation are the ones that I wanted shingeki to win, I didn't think it would win (tie) best action. I also think Clannad should have won favorite romance.

Shingeki was not always well animated. Wit and I.G ran behind schedule, the first cour looked rushed. Too many scenes with minimal animation, close ups, and stills. Every episode started with a 1:30 long recap, always a time (or money) saving move. Too many flaws for it to win. The second cour was a lot better.
First of all, thxs to everyone I really find it enjoyable
Nice that Gintoki & Olivier made it !!
Just maybe a suggestion, I was just a little bit confused with the openings finale : Snk Vs .... Snk . Well that's ok for me, but, maybe for next times, it would be better to avoid to have this kind of configuration for a finale, it's restricting the opportunity of others animes to compete. It's like having two characters of the same anime (like Naruto vs Sasuke ) but anyway it's fine ^^.

Attack on Titan is the most overrated anime since Guilty Crown
