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!

I generally don't like getting my hopes up for shows actually being good but I stupidly did so for the following... Ordered by how much my hopes were crushed.
I wanted ass kicking lady Pirates yarring around SPACE... I fucking got school girls in SPACE pretend playing pirates...
Yet another one of those stupid shoujo reverse harem kickass shows that fucking failed miserably despite having a great idea going on.
Lupin III Fujiko Blaa Blaa
Talk about sucking the fun lightheartedness out of Lupin. Not a fan of "serious" Lupin at all.
I had no real idea what to expect going into this. It made me feel really awkward at times when watching it which is awesome but in the end things just really went no where. Very disappointing. Zombie's have never been so cute before.
Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
Urg I dunno what I was expecting with this one... Ghosts are pretty cool generally. But the end did kinda rock. So I guess sitting through some boring paid off.
Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate
For an anime about a food club this show didn't focus nearly enough on delicious treats as it should have!
Kill Me Baby
This show should have been funny as hell but instead I got annoying as fuck.
Ok now we get into the shows that I actually enjoyed enough but just wish they were slightly better. Zetman had it all going on... It just needed more episodes to execute it properly I think.
Muv-Luv Alternative: Total Eclipse
Mixed bag of feelings with this one honestly. I fucking love it to bits and really have it rated highly. But in the end it just fell flat and left me wanting more of the awesomeness it was instead of what awesomeness it turned out to be. These aliens are fucking awesome though! Mecha too!!
