Nurarihyon no Mago is about a "normal" boy who just happens to have demon blood in him. When that blood awakens he becomes the leader of a demon group!
Plain boring all black for boys, although apparently they have white shirts under those black jackets and wear blue ties. Girls... oi... stupid tan school sweaters... Some girls wear a nice thin red bow tie that overlaps onto the sweater which kinda looks cute but still ends up ugly in my opinion. It's like they knew it was icky and tried hard to make it look alright... At least that's what I like to believe... I do however like the blue skirts with the very thin trim along the bottom. It makes them stand out while the rest of the outfit is hideous.
Overall: I'll skip these ones as a whole but I'd totally wear that skirt.
Summer anime was another full plate with 27 shows. I watched 26 of them because MonHun Nikki Girigiri Airu Mura G was a S2 to a show that only had 3 episodes subbed from its S1. Someday I hope they'll appear. Kinda like how I'm still waiting for more Gag Manga Biyori. I always feel quite accomplished when I can load up Anime-Planets seasonal anime screen and view everything marked as watched~
Ro-Kyu-Bu is easily the worst show I have watched all year long. While Onii-chan from winter was terrible indeed, it didn't fill me with nearly as much rage as Ro-Kyu-Bu did when I forced myself to sit through each and every episode. It's not even that the show is about lolibasketball. It's more the way it looks... Reminds me of CLANNAD! >.<
Worst Show of summer is aside from Ro-Kyu-Bu because that's the worst anime to air this year, would be Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi. Did anyone seriously even like this show? So bad.
Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of summer 2011:

- Uta no Prince-sama: Maji Love 1000% 3/10
- Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi 2/10
- Ro-Kyu-Bu 1/10
Surprise enjoyment: R-15, Manyuu Hiken-chou, & Nekogami Yaoyorozu all did something weird for me in a good way. Most people didn't enjoy these shows but I found myself hooked. Anime about porn writers, cat Gods, and AMAZING boobs are fun things for anime to look at when your only goal is to have fun.
Surprise fail: I actually had serious hopes that Twin Angel would be good. The ova was so why couldn't the series be? ;__; Even though I gave Baka to Test to Shoukanju 2 a high rating I was still pretty disappointed with it like most people were. They should have kept to what they were doing right from S1, although honestly S2 isn't as bad as people make it out to be.

Season 2's can either be great or not so great. Generally when season 2s are announced I make sure to watch the first one before they start airing. Amazingly all these I had already seen their season 1s for so I didn't have to go through any prep and just dived right in.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS SHOW! I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU MANGA READERS SAY!
I was happy to get more of this show but unhappy that I had to sit through more episodes revolving around Inami... If she wasn't in this show it would be a million times better.
Oh these girls... Weird that S2 was only 8 episodes.
Squid Girl 2
More aweseome squidaliciousness~
Seikon no Qwaser 2
I don't know... It gave us more boobs... I guess that's enough...
Tono to Issho 2
More hilarious shorts from feudal Japan!
Kimi ni Todoke 2
Thanks for another season of growing up angsty done in a girly way...
The World God Only Knows 2
I hope we get more. Haqua <3
Nurarihyon no Mago 2
Did anyone else even watch this? You should cause it's fun!
Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu 2
While season 1 was all hit, season 2 was mostly miss. I still enjoyed it but wish it was more like the first series.
BALLS BALLS BALLS!
Summer was actually really busy for me in real life so I ended up only steadily watching Sengoku Basara, Strike Witches, Sekirei, and Kuroshitsuji. Why those 4? Simply because they were all season 2's to shows I had already seen. I wasn't quite willing to get my hopes up for fresh and new like I did with Winter.
Oddly a new Digimon series started to air too. I'm not honestly sure why since Season 5 ended back in 2007 but I suppose they are reaching out to the new generation of kids or something. Maybe I'll watch it someday but probably after I finish/catch up with Pokemon. Who knows.
Summer is generally a lot like winter anime wise. There's often one or 2 really great series and the rest is rather meh. I was impressed that only 5 anime were on the low side of things out of 16. I also really enjoyed watching everything just after they completed. I had fun reading everyones end thoughts as I caught up with the ends myself.
Best Show of summer for me without a doubt is Highschool of the Dead. A lot of people actually picked this one to be their favourites. Weather it be for the zombies, for the ecchi, or for everything that was silly fun! Boobs defying gravity was a must in this show and it was hilarious. I never take ANYTHING that has zombies in it seriously. I mean come on really, zombies! That's just grand old fun and I was glad to see an anime adaptation of the zombie world. I love zombie movies!
Worst Show of summer for me of course was Amagami SS. I'm just not interested in the majority of romance shows. This one also teetered on the harem side of things but had a twist to it that they did one girl at a time. So it was basically like watching some lonely boy playing a VN over and over and over again to see how many different girls he could get. Yeah, no thanks.
Here's my big list of Best to Worst shows of summer 2010:
- Highschool of the Dead 9/10
- Sengoku Basara 8/10
- Kuroshitsuji 8/10
- Seitokai Yakuindomo 8/10
- Occult Academy 7/10
- Nurarihyon no Mago 7/10
- The Legend of the Legendary Heroes 7/10
- Strike Witches 7/10
- Shiki 7/10
- Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi 6/10
- Mitsudomoe 5/10
- Sekirei 4/10
- Asobi ni Iku yo 4/10
- Shukufuku no Campanella 3/10
- Amagami SS 2/10
Surprise enjoyment: Seitokai Yakuindomo was one darn hilarious anime. I simply loved all the dirty jokes that the girls were making. I honestly had no idea what I was getting into. I mean the plot revolved around a boy who is one of the first that started going to this all girls school that suddenly opened their doors to males. Sounds like a boring harem plot line but man did it ever turn out way different and more awesome than I could have imagined. VIVA LA PERIOD JOKES!
Surprise fail: Asobi ni Iku yo you'd think it being about catgirls would be enough. Sometimes you need just a little more though. It tried REALLY hard though I'll give it credit for that. But even alien catgirls in SPACE didn't save it for me.
Honorable mentions: Shiki started off very weak. So weak in fact I put off watching the rest until earlier this week. Man am I ever glad I picked it back up because the later episodes after 13 are just pure awesome. I'm also glad that I got to watch them all but the last episode in one swift go. I can't imagine waiting each week to see what happens. Mitsudomoe while has a middle rating it is ok. It's very hit and miss with me more being on the miss side of things but man when it hits a funny part it is simply hilarious.
