Posted by avvesione in Anime, Season Reviews, Special Posts on January 1, 2013
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.
12 Days of Anime (2012) – Day 5 – Dancing Openings and Endings of 2012
Posted by avvesione in 12 Days of Anime, Anime on December 21, 2012
Let’s face it, if there were a hierarchy of anime openings and endings, then the fanservice dancing ones would be on top. They’re like the royalty of anime OPs and EDs, not only in terms of quality and fondness but also in how unforgettable or distinctive they are. Remember that dance in Haruhi? Or the Lucky Star opening? Or my personal favorite, the seconding ending to xxxHOLiC? As soon as you infuse some dancing into an opening or ending, they improve or, at the very least, become more memorable. This year, we witnessed the origination of several new dancing openings and endings, with each showing its influence by being some of the most cherished and celebrated sequences of the year. And for this day, I want to honor these select few openings and endings for being some of the best in 2012.

With the conclusion of the Spring anime season comes a period of evaluation and judgment based on everything that was watched. In the end, a final mark is given that encompasses our thoughts and feelings on the series and is the assessment we return to when looking back at the series. Though this closure for an anime series may seem shallow compared to the experience we had over the past twelve or so weeks, it does feel like a way to properly finish a series before we fully immerse ourselves in the Summer anime season. And with that, here is the final review for the Spring 2012 anime season.
