We’ve crossed the halfway point of the Summer 2012 Season, and info on the Fall shows is floating around, so we’ve compiled a quick list of what we’ll be watching.
Continuations of Jormungand and Bakuman are a certainty, as are the Summer carryovers and Sket Dance. But in our effort to limit our watchlist to a dozen or less, which shows will grab the remaining slots depends entirely on how good they are. First impressions are important, but as Kokoro Connect proved, not everything.
We make it a point to learn as little as possible about a series before watching it, and this season will be no different. Here’s what we’re lookin’ to watch so far – click a title for more info.
