The year of 2012 saw the debut and broadcasting of well over a hundred television anime and even more in the forms of movies and OVAs. Over the past dozen months, I’ve spent countless hours watching these anime and documenting my thoughts, opinions and evaluations on each and every show. Now with the year coming to a close, it’s time to summarize this year of anime with two simple lists: one on the top 12 characters of the year and the other on the top 12 favorite anime of the year.
Despite being months overdue and embarrassingly late, the review for the Winter 2012 anime season is at long last completed. Though these anime have long since concluded and become a fragment of our cherished memories, there should be closure for these shows and that’s what this comprehensive review hopes to accomplish. Come, let’s take a moment to reexamine, reanalyze, and reflect on the anime that composed the first anime season of 2012.
The midway point in a season is about the fairest time to evaluate an anime since each show has had ample time to introduce its characters, establish its story, differentiate itself from the rest, and show enough to allow us to form proper judgment. Each show has had time to work out its kinks and oddities, too, as well as reveal its true self after spectacular or sluggish beginnings. Now that the Winter Anime season is well past its midway point, it’s time to take a moment and see how the anime we love and watch this season are performing and how they compare to each other.
