Not Too Excited About Summer Anime 2012

Oh dear, what am I looking at here? The only series that stood out by reading the summary alone is Rinne no Lagrange and that’s only because I saw the first season already! Crisis?!

Usually, I don’t have many on my list before the season starts but will eventually add a few more after that. That’s because I’d sample the first few episodes of a series and then decide they’d stay on my watch list.
