In my opinion the Spring 2012 season is pretty solid and much better than Winter was. I am definitely enjoying the hell out of the following shows:

Tsuritama
Space Brothers
Kids on the Slope
Lupin the Third: the woman called Fujiko Mine
Mysterious Girlfriend X
Sankarea

There are many others as well but these would probably be my favorites of the new season.

Seems like there is a great deal of conclusory statements about the state of anime without any real discussion. Some of the responses proclaim that anime are good which, in fact, did not occur in 2012. Others claim he isn't a real anime fan because he doesn't like most/ all anime, or isn't mature enough to like good anime. These ad hominem statements aren't all that helpful either.Others, include such a large list of anime, i would question whether their is an anime bad enough that they wouldn't like it. I'm looking at you Aquarion fan. Point is that the general decay of anime has been noticed/argued by people enough that you need not be a troll to state it. The fact that so much of the anime declared as good here come from a narrow group of genres lends wait to the arguability of the original posters point.

Though I wont go as far as the original poster and say that Anime is unwatachable this year--I am a fan of Dusk Maiden of Amnesia--I will say that most of the shows out here are no better then Naruto. Nothing yet has approached Code Gease,Trigun, Cowboy Bebop, Robotech, Serial Experiments Lain, Death Note, the original Full Metal Alchemist, etc. And, further, what's left seem to be merely remakes or sequels to previously made anime like Evangelion, or Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.

You don't have to be a heretic to feel this way either, it is natural for anime quality to vary during the years and to disapprove of some years is not to hate anime. I am reminded of the dark years of the early nineties. So I would suggest that, perhaps, responders to this post have been as much trolls as the OP.

For much more articulate discussion of the current quality of anime I offer this youtube posting: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SCA_Tb4W9WM&feature=fvwrel

I also noticed that some of them are fake but it doesn't matter I posted it anyway because some of them are real and good titles like the Rebuild of Evangelion Evangelion: 3.0 and Jormungand Season 2 which said to be released this fall 2012, unless they're cancelled.

The problem is not everyone can weed out what is fake and what has been green-lit but not assigned to the fall season.



If they are not sure which one is fake then they could just search each title on google like I do.

While they could, few would. Most people won't even bother to Google a term or abbreviation they are unfamiliar with.

The best suggestion: Quit. Cause you can't find anything good (except Naruto, Bleach and One Piece).

You should watch two episodes or more before judging things, I usually say "next season looks like shit" but then when I watch them, some are way good. Only time I don't is when there is a sequel or something I already know about (read it or whatever).

Also that chart is way fake and not useful at all get over it. (Little busters by kyoani shit I wish)

I laugh at this whole topic. There's Space Brothers, Fate Zero season 2, Jormungand, Kids on the Slope, etc. Not to mention that there's still other anime that is continuing such as Fairy Tail. Really shouldn't ask something that is based on only YOUR opinion. Once again, I laugh at this topic.

Oh my gosh, that is an insult to this year. There are a lot of awesome anime out this year. I'm sure there are a couple which can be considered as gems for the next years. Heck, I got into anime again because of all the awesomeness this year has to offer. And it doesn't end with just Winter and Spring because Summer has a strong line-up as well.

Like everyone mentioned, Bleach is not a good basis for your statement of making this thread.
Posted 5/22/12
LOL wow. the fact that bleach is being used as the baseline comparison to determine the quality of the shows this year just cracks me up to no end. hilarious stuff. best. post. ever.

Have you actually tried to watch a new anime this season? The second Prince of Tennis wasn't all that great, I watch(ed) Naruto and Bleach, but they're far from my favorites. Naruto and Bleach are pretty much starter anime for people who haven't gotten their feet wet for other series yet. Bleach and Naruto were my first two I've seen subbed, but I look forward to most of this season's shows more than those two.

anime being "garbage" depends on the person.

dont assume that if you think it's garbage... everyone's going to agree with you.
