SAO had worse execution and characters, it definitely tried to do a lot more things but failed in all of them. I atleast liked a few things in the Oreimo specials and did get some (not a lot but some) enjoyment out of them.
The only enjoyment I got out of SAO was laughing at how bad it is.

And can you.. or someone explain "character development" .... that term feels just too broad. I mean.. look at Kirito. He started out as a confident loner.. similar to many gamers as experienced as him. Then he turned into a "marty stu" type of hero really quickly.. being so overpowered that I don't see him as a player that is good, but a professional.
Asuna, on the other hand, didn't really change much. Still cool/cute though.

Basically building up a character and how they change/progress.
For Kirito it was character derailment rather than character development, he was a blank slate Gary Stu that rather than having an actual personality and developing was whatever the plot needed him to be. He was supposed to be a loner but they never really showed us that he really was one. He was a Gary Stu the entire time.

I'd like to pitch in. My top three anime of all time are.
1] School Rumble.
2] Ah Megami sama.
3] Cowboy Bebop.
All three anime would get at least a 9 if I rated them. Alas, that is just from me saying it, not keeping recorded text or anything.

1. Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust
2. Soul Eater
3. Samurai Champloo
4. Kara no Kyoukai
yeah i prefer anime with a well-animated fight scene every 20 minutes.
Anyone watching Teekyu Season 2?
Just finished 21 episodes of attack on titan. Also watching familiar of zero F. I am enjoying familiar of zero F more because I like my seasonings of ecchi on my action adventures/harems. That said, Attack on Titan is a really good show. It's not a favorite, but I agree that it should be anime of 2013. The show is simply incredible.
My good animes in 2013 (because they are the only shows I watched xD)
list (in alphabetical order):
Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai NEXT = UNIVERSSSEEE
Da Capo III = yeah... I followed the franchise so why not.
Danganronpa: The Animation = Loved the game so the anime is just fanservice for me despite the rushed adaptation.
Date A Live = lol. Romancing enemies is the key to victory.
Free = yeah. actually a good show but I'm still at ep 3 lol. need to catch up.
Hataraku Maou-sama = Hilarious show. I haven't expecting anything about this show but it surprised me with its enjoyment and laughter. xDD
Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko = It touches the spot....
Kami Nomi zo Shiru Sekai III = main protagonist is GOD
Kotoura-san = was good despite being too melodramatic
Ore no Imouto Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai 2= nvm about the OVA
Shingeki no Kyojin = dem titan butt, dem mikasa's abs and dem parodies floating around the internet.
To Aru Kagaku no Railgun = Biribiri. nuff said.
Watamote Watashi ga Motenai no wa Dou Kangaetemo Omaera ga Warui = hilarious show which is like a satire to our main character which is depressing that it is very funny.... WAT?
Yahari Ore no Seishun Love Comedy wa Machigatteiru = not your typical harem which is very refreshing with loner MC to add into it. very philosophical lol
still want to watch:
Aku no Hana = I don't think I will be able to watch this but I'm just curious with its uproar it caused with having disastrous use of rotoscope.
Blood Lad = was recommended to watch it.
Hayate no Gotoku Cuties = dropped the Cant Get My Eyes on You but I followed the manga. I heard this followed the manga.
Highschool DxD NEW= pervy shounen hero is epic shounen.
Hyakka Ryouran = watched the first season so yeah.
Monogatari series second season = followed the series so yeah.
Ore no Kanojo to Osananajimi ga Shuraba Sugiru = watched the first 6 episodes but I mostly cringe than laugh.... might reconsider picking it up again just to finish...
Ro Kyuu Bu 2= don't judge me.
Suisei no Gargantia = Urobutcher scriptwriter. Don't wanna get behind.
Yondemasu yo Azazel-san 2 = watched the first season and was very hilarious.
Whew. I need more time.... they keep piling up.
-subtly using this thread for tracking my show only xDD-

Took a look and have 15 anime I've liked so far this year. I have time to kill so might as well list them.
AKB0048 Next Stage (Music + Sci-fi + story!)
Boku wa Tomodachi go Sukunai Next (Liked so much more than S1)
Danganronpa (Haven't played the game so dunno what all I'm missing)
Date A Live (Loved the characters, Kotori was my favorite)
Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya (Biggest surprise of the summer)
Free! (Good. Like the storyline)
Genei wo Kakeru Taiyou (Madoka rip-off but still great)
Hentai Ouji to Warawanai Neko. (Tsukiko+Azusa=moe overload)
Kami nomi zo Shiru Sekai III (Haqua is best)
Kamisama no Inai Nichiyoubi (Good story, great premise, god-tier artwork)
Kiniro Mosaic (Love my moe)
Kotoura-san (Kotoura was cute, loved her mind reading ability)
Love Lab (Best of summer 2013)
Love Live (I love music)
Ore no Imouto ga Konnani Kawaii Wake ga Nai 2 (OVAs are a disgrace in many ways)
Shingeki no Kyojin (Completely overrated but enjoyable I guess)
Toaru Kagaku no Railgun S (Mikoto!)
Yuyushiki (Enjoyable plotless comedy)
Nothing I really want to see except maybe Da Capo but I want to watch the rest of the series first. Besides Da Capo, I've already pretty much watched everything that's interested me.
@Ceris I do have MAL. It's just that MAL doesn't keep history on things that I have watched in that particular year. xDD I just use this thread to have mini record since there are barely posters here. xDD Now that I think about it, I could have used a blog. Oh well. xDD
As for Hayate no Gotoku. first season and second season the the best. I heard Cuties at least followed the manga although the adaptation are all over the place without being linear with the manga. They just adapt certain chapter and then move on the next one and went back again... Timeline became very messed up. I dropped the Cant get my eyes off you because it's just an original anime, without being canon from the manga. (for now) I think the author will link those eventually. But still I didn't enjoy so I dropped it.
Da Capo is a somewhat "old" franchise. I don't think you will get to enjoy it as I did before. It's like my very first harem show. xDD Probably I become attached to its franchise because it became my root. You might find it too cliche or too cheesy or too corny or too melodramatic if you already watched a lot of rom-com shows. xDD
BTW is Fate/kaleid liner Prisma☆Illya any good? It seems like an insult to its original.

This site: http://mal.oko.im/ has a section that allows you to sort by year. It's pretty much an extension to MAL and gives you more in depth stats.
As for Da Capo: I don't care about cliches, my favorite anime of all time boils down to "Love saves all" so cheesy isn't a problem either. I tend to be able to enjoy a large variety of anime despite them having many shortcomings.
