#1 - The coloring is nice, but it's just rather boring.
#2 - Love the crop, but it's a little too soft and doesn't stand out.
#3 - The crop is really cool, and so is the coloring, but I had to look at it for a little while before I figured out what it was.
#4 - It's really funny, though I'm not really a big fan of animated icons, unless it's subtle. I like still ones with nice coloring and effects rather than an animated one with simple pictures and words.
#5 - Nice crop, and the coloring is certainly bright and fitting. It's a good icon.
#6 - Cute screencap, and I think the texture on it is cool, but the text looks odd.
#7 - The contrast between Hama and the background is nice, though she looks a little washed out. It's pretty, but there isn't anything that makes it stand out.
#8 - The coloring is perfect, and a very nice use of text.
#9 - Great crop, and the colorful background is very fitting. The effect with the boxes is really nice, and I think it works perfect with the puppet!momo.
#10 - Good crop, but there really isn't anything special about it.
#11 - The crop is nice, and I absolutely love the coloring! It gives the icon a very nice effect.
#12 - I like the crop, but I think the notebook and line part doesn't fit, and overpowers the icon.
#13 - The lighting is nice, and gives a nice contrast of the bluish gray and the character. The crop is pretty predictable, but it fits.
#14 - Like I said, I am not a big fan of animated ones since it's just screenshots and words, which to me is rather boring. The focus is on the joke, and not the look of the icon. Funny, though.
My favorites are in bold. I narrowed it down to #9 and #11. I ended up picking #9.

I didn't really notice 11 at first, but the more I look at it the more I love it. I love how in the screenshot she looks like she's holding her breath so no one hears her - and that adds to the soft and gentle look to it. So my vote's for 11, but 5 is my second favorite.
