Well, I think hands down, Kids on the Slope is the best so far this year. If I were to rank my top 5, I think this would be the order, since certain shows haven't finished yet.

1. Kids on the Slope
2. Kokoro Connect
3. Chihayafuru
4. Ano Natsu de Matteru
5. Space Brothers

So far imo, in no order of priority:

1) Kids on the Slope
2) Kuroko no Basket
3) Sankarea
4) Kokoro Connect
5) Fate/Zero Part 2 (kinda stuck between this and Dusk Maiden of Amnesia)

I have high hopes for Part 2 of Jormungand aka Jormungand: Perfect Order this Fall as well. The original series was pretty damn good.

It's got to be Chihayafuru for me. Beautiful art, fantastic characters, unbelievable intensity and somehow it never feels stale.

If Kokoro Connect keeps going the way it's been going, it'll be my second favourite of the year. Other great ones are Daily Lives of High School Boys, Humanity Has Declined, Hunter x Hunter, Lupin the Third: The Woman Called Fujiko Mine, Mysterious Girlfriend X, and Space Brothers.

In no particular order

Kuroko's Basketball
Polar Bear's Café
Tari Tari
Yuru Yuri s2
Space Brothers
Sakamichi no Apollon


Ones that started at the end of 2011, finished in 2012:
Rinne no Lagrange (though s2 started in 2012, and it's still pretty nice)
Chihayafuru
Mirai Nikki

There's probably others, but I have a bad memory :P

How could I forget Tsuritama :O
That's a great anime too.

I'll be the first to say Tsuritama.

Kuroko no Basket is up on my list as well.

And I won't forget Tari Tari!

Sword Art Online for sure tops my list but there has been plenty of good other anime

Kids on the slope and Space Brothers both are great too, though both have problems for me that lead to them not being at the top of the pack. I think I will put Kids on the Slope above Space Brothers just because the improvised concert was an epic moment and Space Brothers really hasn't had that yet. Oda Nobuna surprisingly has been up there as of late as well as it never really fails to entertain me.

I think I am going to have to give Kuroko's Basketball a look since so many of you have raved about it.

Oh right!! Number two for me is definitely Dusk Maiden of Amnesia without a doubt and if SAO doesn't end strong it will take first place. (Though SAO has been amazingly steady with its awesome delivery so far). Its been a good year for me after a drought of mediocre and downright boring anime years. Dusk maiden was stellar in everything it did, though it did it very oddly I found it to be a genius work of art.

Hunter x Hunter has always been a favorite but since I saw the entire original anime it lacks that new flavor to bring it up to the level of some of those previously mentioned.

Anyways so my picks are:
1. Sword Art Online
2. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia
3. Kids on the Slope
4. Space Brothers
5. The Ambition of Oda Nobuna
6. All the other anime I am watching..
