Review of 2012 Anime Part 3 ~Summer~
Summer was a mixed bag of stuff. There were some really great shows, some really meh shows, and some down right terrible ones. I watched almost everything that aired after they all finished like I did for winter. Horizon 2, Kingdom, The Ambition of Oda Nobuna, Sword Art Online, and Natsuyuki Rendezvous are the only ones I watched weekly along with whatever was still airing from Summer. I didn't watch that new season of Pokemon either because I'm so not up to date with that franchise. One day I swear I will be!! Wooo Pokemon Workout!
I got no 10/10 shows shockingly but Horizon could count for it honestly. I need to re-watch both seasons of that sometime soon. Since it is such a great show and all! Maji de Otaku na English! Ribbon-chan: Eigo de Tatakau Mahou Shoujo (long title is long) came out but I watched only one episode of that since it has some kind of airing delays that last months and months for new episodes.
Best Show of summer is Kingdom. A show that no one but me is watching. More people should watch it!!
Worst Show of summer is Campione! because of no surprise here Who is Imouto wins for worst show of 2012 for me. I don't really care that people actually "enjoyed" watching this show to make fun of it either. Same can be said for Sword Art Online which I enjoyed a lot.

- Kingdom (still airing) 9/10

- Campione! 1/10
- Kono Naka ni Hitori, Imouto ga Iru! / NAKAIMO - My little sister is among them! 1/10
Surprise enjoyment: The drama Kokoro Connect and the comedy Joshiraku came out of no where for me and were highly enjoyable! Very interested in the special episodes of Kokoro Connect coming up. Binbougami ga and Ebiten are 2 more comedy shows that came out of no where for me and were hilariously awesome.
Honorable mentions: Humanity Has Declined was pretty much universally loved by everyone who watched it. I think it was risky to air another gender bent Oda Nobunaga story while another one was still airing from spring but I liked The Ambition of Oda Nobuna a lot in the end! Natsuyuki Rendezvous SPOOKY GHOST!
