So, watched Maken-Ki! and with that (excluding fanservice OVA I'm yet to watch), I'm ready for the next season. Also watched Hyouka in the meantime.
There are no spoilers in spoiler tags. They are to prevent this from looking like a wall of text only.
I will be watching OniAi next.
But that's why I like it and I think that it is an awesome anime.
Meanwhile I also finished watching Nekomonogatari; now all I have to do is watching Monogatari second season, which just ended.
A for what I'll watch next, I think it will be Stein's; gate.
So, OniAi ended up being the last anime I watched in 2013.
I will be watching Inu x Boku SS next.

I finished rewatching Chuunibyou. Still one of my favorite all time anime. In addition to being a very funny comedy, Chuunibyou is such a warm, easy to relate to, heartfelt romance. Rikka and Yuuta are amazing leads, lovable, awkward, and extremely likable. Now I am really excited for season two!
This afternoon I watched the second Gargantia OVA, something I had been putting off for a while. Both Gargantia OVA's are essential viewing, for fans of the series. They are full episodes, comparable in quality to regular episodes from season one. The second OVA is particularly good, explaining a key plot point from the TV anime. I also watched the first episode of Love Live. The first episode, at least, was very good. Funny, entertaining, with great characters, animation, and music.

Just finished Seitokai Yakuindomo and it was pretty good. Great characters and nice, dirty jokes.
I will continue with the OVA. After that... Either Kanon, TTGL or Seitokai no Ichizon.
Just finished Toaru Majutsu no Index (Season 1). Can't say I was that impressed, kinda turned out like I thought it would be. Not bad, but not great either. Too many characters introduced, who remain rather bland and shallow because they just don't get screentime or some kind of development. Touma was rather boring, and I have to wonder why the show even has "Index" in it's name, considering what little role she actually played. The villains were pretty weak too, outside of a certain guy.
Besides some very few exceptions, the science part was way better than the magic part in general. The two characters who saved the show for me are Misaka and Accelerator, both are by far the best ones the show has to offer. Interesting, quirky, and entertaining in their own way. The only ones who got some character development too. Accelerator's mini-arc with chibi Misaka definitely was the highlight for me.
I will watch the second season now, hoping for more Accelerator and Misaka (+ sisters and her sister). Maybe the second season will introduce less characters, and focus more on the ones it already has, that would be great.

I finished Non Non Biyori the other day. Funny, simple, filled with adorable casts. Kinda surprised I could miss this gem when it aired. I love the interaction between the girls, each one of them filled a remarkable role in the story. The voice acting is noteworthy as well, and if MAL is correct, most of the VA aren't big names.
As cliche as Touma could be, I like him. But that will be a discussion in another place and another time.
Wow I have to disagree about Railgun, at least Railgun S, halfway through and I just find it boring as a whole. I dont like her friends their all boring, the fights are dull, and Accelerator and Touma have too little screentime.
Asumi Kana is a big name. She won the 2013 Seiyuu Award for best actress in a leading role. Natsumi's VA, Sakura Ayane is relatively new, and young, but gets a lot of lead roles. She was Yozora, in Haganai. Renge and Hotaru's seiyuu are newcomers, and not that well known. There were some big names among the supporting cast. Nee Nee and Candy Store also had well known seiyuu.
