Summer 2012 Season Preview

Summer is fifteen days away, so we thought we’d take a look at what’s coming for the Summer anime season, which officially starts around July. Below is a list of series we will watch. As per usual we know nearly nothing about most of them, and we’re avoiding direct sequels (except in cases where we’ve seen the series they’re based upon) and will be quickly dropping shows that don’t wow us immediately, due to the volume of new series. If we do end up sticking with everything listed below (not likely, mind you), we’ll be keeping track of a baker’s dozen, including Sket Dance. Click on a title to learn more about it.
