So 2012 is nearing to a close, and so are the anime series that have started (and ended, mostly) in this year. I was wanting to take a retrospective look on the anime this year, so I’ve compiled a list of my top 12 anime from this year, from 12 to 1. Without further ado, let’s begin~!
12. Tonari no Kaibutsu-kun
Making number twelve is a show from the current anime season. I usually don’t like to pass judgement on series before they’re done, but I’ve really been enjoying this show. It’s a shoujo show, but it definitely feels a little different than the generic shoujo that’s put out every once in a while. Refreshingly, the two main characters are blunt and honest to the point of being a little crazy, and it’s fun to watch. The heroine, Mizutani Shizuku, is mega-cute and is definitely one of the top girls this season. Shoujo generally gets the short end of the stick when it comes to anime, but surprisingly 2012 has been a fairly strong year for shoujo in anime, as you’ll see with the rest of the list.
