    Discuss, bitch about the lateness of the thread, post a link to the thread asking what Summer anime you want to watch and claim it's the same, whatever.
    Spoilers in [spoilers] or make it clear about the anime you are talking about.

    Currently watching:
    Mawaru Penguindrum
    No. 6
    iDOLM@STER
    Usagi Drop
    Ao no Exorcist (two cour)
    Nichijou (two cour)

    I'm fighting off reading Usagi Drop manga to see what happens but I won't, Penguindrum just got interesting (Ep.4), No. 6 is yaoi waiting to (already has) happen, iDOLM@STER is meh, I may pick up Blood-C.

    I will eventually watch a few series once they are complete, since i can't stand waiting for episodes, and also tend to forget what happened in the last episode.

    Probably these:
    Usagi Drop
    Mawaru Penguindrum
    Blood-C BECAUSE CLAMP
    BAKA TO TEST
    No. 6
    Dantalian no Shoka
    Appleseed XIII

    Otherwise i am just waiting for FATE MOTHERFUCKING ZERO.

    Is there not one of the large pictures detailing all of it?

    Edit:
    http://www.moetron.com/2011/04/17/summer-2...-anime-listing/ (a quick scan reveals no warez but if I missed some please accept my apology).
    Also
    http://moetron.com/uploads/20110718_summer_guide.jpg (I have not checked to see if it needs a proper referrer).

    Edit 2 forgot the comments.
    My usual ignoring any anime set in a school protocol is in effect. This had the nice effect of more than halving the potentials.

    I did not make it through Blood+ yet (and it has been about 2 years since I last tried) so I am not sure about Blood-c
    Dantalian no shoka I guess I can keep an eye on to see if it turns out well but I will not be there for the premier.
    No.6 could work.
    Usagi Drop maybe worth looking at if I decide I have had enough action.
    Appleseed XIII looks like I might have to be there from the start (or I guess now play catch up) which makes a change (not had an anime like that for me in years).
    Blade I will watch because it is Blade although I do not know if I can shake the TV series (which I really liked).

    I've enjoyed this season so far, haven't dropped anything I've started yet. I'm currently watching:
    Baka to Test
    Dantalian no Shoka
    Kamisama no Memochou
    Mawaru Penguindrum
    No. 6
    Nurarihyon no Mago: Sennen Makyou
    Sacred Seven
    The IDOLM@STER

    I've enjoyed all of them, but Penguindrum and No. 6 have definitely stood out for me so far. I especially like the artwork in Penguindrum.
    From what I've read and heard about Blood-C it's a rather big disappointment, definitely something I won't be picking up.
    Nura S2 has been good as well, It's been a bit weird integrating bits of the later manga into it so early though.
    EDIT: In another note, I don't think I've ever juggled this many new shows at once (and got through them all without getting a massive backlog)

    And continuing from last season:
    Ao no Exorcist
    Steins;Gate
    Tiger & Bunny

    All three of these are great, Ao no Exorcist and Steins;Gate are already in my top 10 list of favourite Anime.

    I'm following:

    Blood-c : 6/10, Very different than Blood and Blood+, too many Clamp shoujo feeling, If I want a shoujo I'll watch Kobato again... Though, I'll watch it for the fact that it's a Blood franchise. I want to know why and what Clamp decided to do with it. There will be a movie for 2012.
    Ikoku Meiro no Croisée : 7/10, a little slow pace but good enough to continue watching
    Kamisama Dolls : 8/10, Good action and mystery
    Natsume 3 : 8/10, follow the usual series, nothing particular.
    No.6: 7/10, looks promising but doesn't advance quickly. Mostly limited with the two main character's interaction.
    Usagi Drop : 9/10, interesting story, nice "kid" graphics.


    I watched the first episode of Kamisama no memochou, but I won't continue.
    Fast pace, too many things to read and decipher (it's detective story), I don't want to pass my time thinking, I prefer anime easy to follow for the moment.

    I may go back and watch past seasons with completed anime, it's frustrating to have to wait for the next episodes!

    Aha, yeah Ao no Exorcist is easily one of my favourites. Reading the manga as they get released over here. Also that fucking ED2.

    I'm going to watch Steins;Gate once it's finished, I hear it picks up after episode 13 or something (only watched up to 6).

    Up to latest on the manga here too, shame it's only monthly though.
    And yeah, episode 13 of Steins;Gate is where shit gets real, then from there it's all just one big mind fuck [​IMG]

    Usagi Drop has my full attention. Love it. The artstyle is fantastic.

    Intrigued by Dantalian, but I don't feel like waiting for it episode by episode. So i'll likely wait till it's done releasing episodes.

    Kamisama no Memo-chou has my attention. Not watching till fully released.

    Kamisama Dolls has my attention from a purely violent point of view, and again...not watching till fully released.

    check anidb webpage for that anime:
    http://anidb.net/perl-bin/animedb.pl?show=anime&aid=8160
    It's set to October 2011

    You can also check the relation graphic.
    edit: Oh, it's the prequel to Fate/stay night, I may start watching the series then.

    If you have an account, you can set notification when there are releases available by subtitle teams.
    You can find many more info about releases and episodes when registered.
    You can create your anime list by scanning files on your computer, and set notification for the followed group only for example.


    Other website maybe are doing the same thing, like myanimelist.net or animenewsnetwork.com
    (I never tried these website, I know only anidb)

    FFFPeeps for Baka to Test S2
    The 1st iDOLM@STER episode was pretty horrible to be honest and I wasn't expecting much from it after that, but it has gotten ALOT better.

    I'm taking ao no exorcist from Hatsuyuki (hot snow?) but there's no seed [​IMG]
    Did you watch it from gg ? Comments are bad for gg on this anime and each episode are 500MB.

    I'm taking sacred seven from gg though. (500MB too)
    Any comments on Shini-subs? I could watch both and decide myself.

    gg gets hate for every single show they do, it's gg.
    plus they troll (commercials) so it pretty much gets everyone mad because oh my god if they have to watch one single advert who knows what will happen.

    edit: also people complain about the translation but that's what they get for watching speed subs.

    I watch gg for Ao and Penguindrum, they're fine. People do seem to complain about the adverts but they're funny and how can you not love MAMESHIBA [​IMG]
