I know that there's another list, but since that list is so jacked up already, there should be a new list. Here is the requirements

1) It can start in 2012 as long as it ENDS in 2013 (i.e Magi, Sakurasou no Pet na Kanojo)

2) It has to run within 2013. If an anime series, however begins this year, but ends the next year, don't put it on the list. If you're planning to put a series on here from the Summer or Fall 2013, please do some research on the anime to see how long it will run  before adding it. After all, according to Random Curiosity, you can't really judge a series until it's over. So if a series will continue on into next year, PLEASE DON'T ADD IT TO THIS LIST!

3) Long running series ( Naruto, Bleach, One piece, Fairy Tail) should not be put on this list, to give new shows a chance to be on the spotlight.

4) If the series is completed before 2013, don't put in on this list. I don't care if the series was great, other shows need a chance.

5) Please don't put a series on the list until it has been CONFIRMED.

6) Please don't put an anime on the list unless it has been AIRED

7) This list is for TV ANIME only.

8) When you add an anime, please put a full name.

9) Please put a description of the anime. You can copy the synopsis.

One day, Akihito meets freshman Mirai Kuriyama when it seems she is about to jump from the school rooftop.

The story takes place at Hope's Peak Academy, an illustrious private school that only accepts "super" students: the best of the best of the best. The criteria extends to any niche, so in addition to super-geniuses and super-athletes, they take super-idols, gang leaders, and geeks. Makoto Naegi, the protagonist, is still baffled as to how he got in, as his only outstanding trait seems to be his super "good" luck - and that's only because he was randomly chosen to be accepted by the school. In fact, he hasn't even started his first day of school when he suddenly loses consciousness and wakes up in a creepy alternate version of the academy.

It's soon revealed that Naegi and fourteen other new students have all been abducted by a sadistic teddy bear named Monobear, who refuses to let them leave. The only way out of the locked-down dark school is to killing another student. Once a murder is committed, Monobear holds a trial so that the class can try to figure out which one of them is the culprit, culminating in a vote. If they make the right choice, the murderer will be messily executed. Make the wrong choice, and not only does the murderer escape, but the rest of them will take the punishment in their place...

The series takes place in the near future, when it is possible to instantaneously measure and quantify a person's state of mind and personality. This information is recorded and processed, and the term "Psycho-Pass" in the anime's title refers to a standard used to measure an individual's being. The story centers around the "enforcement officer" Shinya Kōgami, who is tasked with managing crime in such a world.

Several hundred years ago, humans were nearly exterminated by giants. Giants are typically several stories tall, seem to have no intelligence, devour human beings and, worst of all, seem to do it for the pleasure rather than as a food source. A small percentage of humanity survived by walling themselves in a city protected by extremely high walls, even taller than the biggest of giants. Flash forward to the present and the city has not seen a giant in over 100 years. Teenage boy Elen and his foster sisterMikasa witness something horrific as the city walls are destroyed by a super giant that appears out of thin air. As the smaller giants flood the city, the two kids watch in horror as their mother is eaten alive. Elen vows that he will murder every single giant and take revenge for all of mankind. WATCH THE TRAILER !!!
