Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi This romance/comedy anime is an unique anime due to how its stories revolve around famous stories that we all know....and then it puts their own twist on it. To me thats pretty cool. The characters are likable.....though if your looking for really really good comedy anime....this probabaly wont top your list....but it will sure be one to remember. The main female lead is quite an intriguing character and probably loved by all....while the main male lead is a person who is anti social to the extreme....except when it comes to his love for the main female lead.....all in all.....this is a pretty tacky romance/comedy. It surely is a must-watch for summer 2010. If I was to give this anime a number out of 10....it would be a SOLID 8. Pretty much a B+

Amagami SS First off let me just say.....I have never seen a PURE romance anime besides this ever. Because to me I thought they would not be very interesting. But Amagami SS has proved to me that Pure romance animes can be absolutely wonderful. The characters are awesome....just this whole anime is just fantastic. Morishima was the most unique female character I have ever seen in romance type animes. The anime is 24 episodes with 4 episodes given to each girl in a bunch of What If situations. This is a MUST WATCH to ANYONE who has any doubts about Pure Romance animes for any reason. This anime will definitely change your outlook forever. Everything about this anime is likable so I dont need to bother saying why its great. This anime right now gets a 10/10.

Mitsudomoe If I was to describe this show using other animes as a reference....it would that this anime is a combination of Kodomo No Jikan and Ichigo Mashimaro....and the combination WORKS GREAT! The comedy in this anime is very good and you will come to love all the characters in the show. The misunderstandings in this show are TREMENDOUS and only build up the comedy to great levels. To all comedy loving fans....and people who just like watching cute Loli's....this anime is perfect for you. I give this anime a 10/10 for its comedy.

Shukufuku no Campanella This is an anime that is a hit or miss with most people. This anime is a fantasy/romance anime....but the romance is more of a side story thing than the fantasy. The setting is similar to that of Fairy Tail due to their being Clans....and their being missions for Clans to do to earn a reward. This anime at the moment has no sort of plot....which makes it sort of refreshing to watch. This anime gives the vibes of watching a Slice of Life anime like....Hidamari Sketch or something. The type of vibe where you know nothing too interesting is going to happen...but you watch it anyway due to it making you feel kinda at ease. The visuals in this anime are fantastic. The reason its a hit or miss is due to how people on the Miss side would think its too boring....which is a logical complaint....however on the Hit side....its because its a very refreshing anime to watch....and there really isnt anything to HATE about it...besides not being as intense as what people normally watch. If there is ever such a thing as a fantasy anime with the feeling you get from a Slice of life anime....this would be it. If your able to watch all the episodes that are out right now...Im sure you will find something to love about it. However...no matter how much I like this show, I gotta give it a 6.5/10 due to how the masses wont like this probably.....and once again....this is probably going to be a hit or miss show

Seitokai Yakuindomo This is the cream of the crop of summer 2010. My personal favorite and Im sure many others. This anime is THE KING in ecchi humor. Seriously....there is no comedy anime that focuses on ecchi that can even be compared to this. And this even competes with Baka Test for the best comedy of the year. Seriously....everything about this show is just downright hilarious. No matter what genre of anime you like....you MUST watch this. Im giving this anime an 11/10. Yes an 11 because its just that good. This is a contender for best anime of 2010

Highschool of the Dead This here fellow anime fans....is an anime about zombies. People think this is Cliche...but it really isnt....seriously there have been practically no animes that specialize in zombies. Anyways this anime is just fantastic. The art is great, the story is great, but most of all what I liked about this show is.....the emotions of the people......they are all extremely true to what would happen if a zombie outbreak happened in real life. The way the students show who they really are in a dire situation....the most famous being the BFF girls. Anyway this action/horror anime is just destined to be great. You definitely need to check this out. People dislike the ecchi but....you really shouldnt bother disliking it for that. You will come to love this anime....and this is a contender for best anime of 2010. This anime gets a 10/10 so far

Occult Academy This is a very interesting anime. Definitely original. This show has very interesting characters that everyone should come to love. The animation is quite nice...the story is great....there is absolutely zero things to hate about this anime. trying to save the world in 1999. This is an anime to really check out. Dont really know what to say for a review....its just very good...go watch it xD I give this anime a 10/10 for being just a wonderful anime to watch.

Asobi ni Ikuyo! I was surprised at this anime. I thought it woulda been a full out comedy...but it turns out to have a heavy action aspect to it. Alien girl comes to play on Earth....Earth wants to use/get rid of her. So much action and.....really not that much comedy. Its ecchi to which is nice. Its also a romance anime....so its bound to be good. The alien females are all likeable so far. You should probably check this out. I give this anime an 8/10



Highschool of the Dead, Seitokai Yakuindomo, and Amagami SS are my favorites of the summer for the same reasons. Occult Academy I found interesting and it does stand out from the rest but I found it an okay viewing so far. It seems like it's gearing up for something big later so it's a show to watch out for. Amagami SS was a surprise. It's very 'real' in it's romance and Morishima has one of the most refreshing personalities ever. Seitokai is just laugh out loud funny in it's execution of jokes and comedic situations. And HotD is king when it comes to action/horror in an anime series.

I just started watching Asobi ni Ikuyo and Shukufuku no Campanella so I don't have anything to say about those shows yet.

I'm watching Asobi ni Iku yo ( reminds me with To love ru ) ,Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin ( not bad i laughed a bit ), Highschool of the Dead (the worst ever so far for this season ) ,Kuroshitsuji 2( just want to know the end ),
Shiki .
in my my opinion the summer lineup sucks but i guess the best so far is Shiki ( weird hair by the way )

Kuroshitsuji 2 - Well, everyone got trolled in the beginning, and I certainly respect A-1 for such a successful troll. Though, We're already 5 episodes in, and there has yet to be any light shed on the latter Deus Ex... I certainly don't like how the yaoi factor has been dialed up to 11 and left there, though aside from that, there is rather irregular pacing. I still expect better as the season goes on though. It's too early to judge this one.
Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin - I honestly can't get enough of Maya bitch slapping around the male lead; I just find that kind of sadism hilarious. It's far less pretentious that I thought it'd be, which is a good thing, and it takes after the supernatural genre well. Even though it is kind of bland, this is one I think I'll enjoy to the finish. 6/10
Nurarihyon no Mago - This shounen is like if Inuyasha somehow combined with Naruto, but maybe about 20% worse. The cast is excellent, but none of them fit their roles at all! Well, except for Yui Horie's character. I can't quite put my finger on it, but maybe it's the terrible animation quality, or the bad voice acting, but I'm really reminded of 90's shounen anime. As an anime I would say that it's a waste of time. 4/10
Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi - JC Staff generic garbage QUALITY tsundere animu. That doesn't mean it was bad though, but it wasn't anything special either. It took until episode 5 to have some real plot established, but that's not too, too bad. I recall on the first episode, many compared this to Toradora! though it's probably not a fair comparison. It's been pretty average so far, but it does look like it'll pick up soon. 6/10
Highshool of the Dead - Tits, panty shots, tits, gore, and tits. Is there anything wrong with that? Absolutely not. Though often this season I find that many are complaining about too much fan service. Personally I find that notion hilarious. So far Madhouse is doing a good job with this one. The only thing I don't like is how they cleverly censor most of the gore. Hopefully that will be different in the DVD/BD release. This show is honestly cliché to the nth degree, but I don't have a problem with that, it's still one of the most enjoyable shows this season. 8/10
Seitokai Yakuindomo - Easily my favourite show of the season. It like if the exact opposite of Seitokai no Ichizon met B Gata H Kei. While the latter is a terrible show, Seitokai Yakuindomo pulls off what B Gata H Kei failed to do, and that's crude humor. The characters are easy to like, and most of the time you'll find yourself laughing. This show is probably underrated, because otaku are used to "pure" women in their anime. As I said before, the best show I've seen this season. 9/10
Shukufuku no Campanella - Unmitigated garbage. That is really all there is to this show. I had expected this show to be bad, but it managed to exceed those expectations, by giving me an unimaginably worse final product. So this is an eroge animated by AIC. In the first episode, there is next to no ecchi, though I expect it's different now. The plot is perilously redundant, with very generic and unlikable characters. To those of you who will watch this to the end, enjoy your harem ending I guess. 1/10
Digimon Xros Wars - I'm a bit disappointed with this one. I'm a huge fan of Digimon, and while this had a strong first episode, it immediately started lacking in the subsequent episodes. Suddenly, Shoutmon becomes an annoying tsundere, and the characters all become more clueless than usual. Really though, this season is lacking something that the previous, more successful seasons of Digimon had. At first I was getting weak Gurren Lagann vibes (great thing), now I'm getting strong Gundam Seed Destiny vibes (terrible thing). It's odd because it does have most things formulaic to Digimon. I hope this one picks up eventually though. 4/10
Shiki - At first, I thought the slow pacing was necessary to the genre here, but now I can see that it is not. Is it bad that on the first episode, when the viewer hears the word "anemia", they immediately figure out the mystery to be vampires? I expected something along the lines of Higurashi, not some predictable show about fabulous looking vampires. I'm not sure if I want to watch this anymore... 2/10
Amagami SS - For some reason I expected a Rebuild of School Days, with a touch of Clannad. Also, many people are under some crazy delusion that this is a realistic romance? It's not. Really, in each arc, it is about the main character indulging the fetish of the girl he just happens to be after. Perhaps you can look at it as him parading around as the "problem solver", which is similar to that of Clannad. There will be good ends, bad ends, and obscure ends, yet this anime is somewhat boring to watch each week. I'm just hoping for some interesting bad ends. As an aside, if you are looking for a realistic romance in anime, try Honey and Clover, though even that is a stretch. Personally, I think this show is designed to be enjoyed by hard masochists. 4/10
Asobi ni Iku yo! - I don't have much to say about this show. It's just generic, and reminds me far too much of Ookami Kakushi, which incidentally is by the same studio. Characters here are just unlikable, and the plot is just predictable. I kind of want to drop it, but I don't have anything to watch really on Sundays, except HOTD. 2/10
Legend of the Legendary Heroes - The first two episodes were nothing short of terrible, but the third was really something else. It took the turn from a meta-comedy, to a full blown action show, which lived up to the title. Unfortunately, it turned back into a meta-comedy during episode 4. I still have some hope for this show, and it's not completely bad. 5/10

Hmm you seem to be rating everything quite highly. Personally Summer 2010 was a devastating dissapointing season for me so I won't bother with any half-arsed reviews as it will only attract flaming. So I'll just say I politely disagree with just about everything you said.

Most of the so-called comedies barely managed to get a chuckle out of me and is certainly no match for Baka to Test. Although I admit High School of the Dead looks interesting, but only because no one has done something like this before. The only show I would rate above a 5 out of 10 this season.

All I can hope is The Dissapearance of HS finally get released on DVD sometime soon and therefore get subbed properly. That will singlehandedly redeem this otherwise bland summer season.

Im going to change my ratings on the ones I listed. Though it probably won't change by much. And the ratings I give are based on how well the anime does considering its genre.

Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakama-tachi All I can really say is that this anime isnt a 10/10...nor could it probably be a 9/10. Reasons being.....if we are judging this anime by its comedy......its not that great compared to other animes in summer with comedy.....if we are judging by the action.....well it is pretty decent....but was this anime meant to be an action anime? I dont think it was. But then again...having both genre's being mixed into here definitely deserves some praise. There also seems to be some drama in this show. Normally shows that have a bunch of genre's suited with them...generally do better than others....but this just doesnt seem to be top-of-the-line quality in those regards. I still think this show is a SOLID 8/10 or maybe an 8.5/10

Amagami SS There is nothing that needs to be changed about this rating. Its perfect. 10/10

Mitsudomoe Now this anime deserves a high rating regardless. So its a toss up between 9 and 10. I give it a 10 because there arent too many comedies that are quite as crude humor as this and manage to pull it off excellently. I still deem it 10/10

Shukufuku no Campanella Im guessing no one cared about this rating so.....Im just going to give it the same rating. I myself would love to give it a higher rating.....but I have been making these ratings without any biased opinions....so its still a 6.5/10

Seitokai Yakuindomo If this anime does not make you laugh somehow.....then I seriously have no idea what will. This anime is on GOD-like comedy status. I still give this anime a 11/10. Its pure excellence. Contender for best anime of summer 2010 hands down.

Highschool of the Dead This is contender for best anime 2010 also. This show is just fantastic. The only way for someone to be pulled away from this show is the ecchi....and theres no way that should overlook anything. This anime is a 10/10 hands down.

Occult Academy This is probably the one anime that I was more focused on changing the rating. I truly don't know what this anime should be rated as. All the characters are likeable (Maya is just great) so thats a plus. The story? Well it seems grand. The characters dont really have superpowers so they have to fend off just like any normal human would....so thats a plus. The only way this anime could deter someone is probably if they don't like the genre of this anime. And if its something like that then this anime can't be given a lower rating based on it. I cant really find the necessary flaws to lower this. But I have a gut feeling that a 9/10 would be better suited for this.

Asobi ni Ikuyo! This is also a hard rating choice. It has a harem....so thats a big turn off. But all the characters seem to be likeable. They already thrown us who likes who already so we know we don't have to worry about that anymore....which is a plus. But was this anime supposed to be a comedy? If it was there haven't been a lot of comedic moments so...that could bring it down. This anime has action so...we will probably see more fights....and Elis hammer....thats just gotta bring up peoples opinions of the show. Im guessing this show is either a 7 or 8/10.

Overall...my original opinions of the above listed anime don't change. I personally think we have a wonderful summer lineup. Though Spring 2010 most likely had more to offer. But this season still seems perfect for me.

I have to change my opinion slightly on Shukufuku no Campanella after watching episode 4 because:
so safe to say I now absolutely dispise Agnes which knocks down my rating of likeable characters and it makes me lose a ton of respect for the creators, Maybe that was just a one time Viagra induced thing tho. I hope it was.

Most people seem to be praising "High School of the Dead" the only complaints I see are about it being ecchi. But the reason I can't bring myself to watch it is not because of it being ecchi, but it's a show about zombie outbreak. I don't like any of those kinds of movies/shows.

So the only ones I've watched are these three:

1. Nurarihyon no Mago - 7/10 so far

2. Occult Academy - 8.5/10

3. Sengoku Basara 2 - 8.5/10

The thing I'm always the most excited to see new episodes posted for seems to be Kuroshitsuji II. I adore the characters. And the troll was most excellent. I was so upset when I saw the opening sequence, I nearly dropped the series. Luckily I stuck with long enough to realize what they were doing.

HSoTD is pretty good so far, but I love zombies. I have ecchi complaints about it, but I can overlook it because I enjoy the plot, the characters, and the zombie killing.

Occult Academy stands out to me for being original and for having solid artwork, characters, plot, and dialogue.

Shiki...I hated the main character girl so, so much. The only reason I even bothered to finish the first episode was because the opening scene was her appearing to be dead. Halfway through the second episode I realized just how much abnormal hairstyles/colors randomly being in character designs for no good reason in rural Japan really, really irritates me. Especially when the townsfolk notice when people dress oddly. Maybe it'll end up being good, but between the characters and the artwork I just can't do it.

Kaichou wa Maid-sama...does this count? It's coming out right now, even if it didn't start this summer...I actually enjoy. For what it is, it's pretty good. I like that the main character can fend for herself a lot of the time. Seeing a strong female lead in a romantic comedy anime makes me happy. In fact, I can say I watch this show only because I like the characters. There is no plot to speak of and the shenanigans are fairly typical.

You'll apparently have to wait quite a bit longer to review Amagami SS, Nurarihyon no Mago, Shiki, & The Legend of the Legendary Heroes, as those appear to stretch into Fall.

Ah yes true. Got a little ahead of myself. Tho from the list you gave....Im only watching Amagami SS and Shiki....not a hardcore fan of action anime besides the big 4 shounen titles out right now. But I bet they are still good

I'm not going to bother writing up reviews, but I will post my final ratings and rankings (as of 13 eps), with a 1 sentence comment on each. The main aspects I base my ratings/rankings on are atmosphere, characters, and enjoyment.



While not having many top quality animes, I'd still call this the strongest season since Winter 08/09, because the majority of titles were still above average or very good (6/7's), and there were very few average and below average titles compared to previous seasons.

I've only watched a couple, but this is what I can say.
- Kuroshitsuji 2? GO WATCH IT, no not some of it, ALL OF IT. TO THE END. It's AMAZING considering the rest of the crap this season.
- Shufuku no Camp-whatever? NO. that shit has great art but the creators musta been hyped up.
- Seitokai Yakuindomo - LOVE.

A bunch I started and just dropped, right then and there, so yeah no. :/
