Summer 2012 Anime Re-encoding List

I managed & would like to do 6 new series for the upcoming season. Plenty desshou? ^^;

1) 「TARI TARI」Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: The 1st day of the week & also of July
Animation studio: P.A. WORKS (Angel Beats!, Another, Hanasaku Iroha)

This is an original anime production, so I want to pick this slice-of-life anime since Hanasaku Iroha received well last year. The animation seems pretty nice too.

2) Kokoro Connect 「ココロコネクト」Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: July 7
Animation studio: SILVER LINK. (Baka and Test, Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, C³ -Cubed x Cursed x Curious-)

Otaku check! Do you notice in the picture above that the girl in the middle is somewhat a bitfamiliar? Yet those seifukus & dat bags are familiar too. Umm… Is dat you, Azunyan??

EDIT: I just noticed that the original character design for this anime is done by the person whom also took part in K-ON! character designing.

3) Koi to Senkyo to Chocolate 「恋と選挙とチョコレート」 ~Love & Election & Chocolate~Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: July 5
Animation studio: AIC Build (OreImo, Haganai)

The visual-novel-adapted anime series are always good. The game still doesn’t receive an English treatment yet, so might give it a try. The studio of “Haganai” make this one? I’m in!

4) Natsuyuki Rendezvous 「夏雪ランデブー」Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: July 6
Animation studio: Dogakobo (11eyes, Yuruyuri)

This will be the next anime for the Fuji TV’s noitaminA timeslot. Looks like another josei series after Kids on the Slope. Still hoping for final episode this Friday… Notable seiyuus like Yuichi Nakamura & Jun Fukuyama also join in this anime.

5) Code Geass: Akito the Exiled 「コードギアス 亡国のアキト」Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: August 4 in theaters across Japan, Blu-ray/DVD release might be around Q4 2012.
Animation studio: Sunrise (Code Geass R1/R2, Gundam 00/SEED, Accel World)

This will be a side-story OVA of the TV series. I’ve seen the main story and y’know what, that should have become a legend; plenty of drama, action & tragedy! But I am not expecting this one too much since Lelouch will not make any appearance in this anime. And dat music in the PV… really… promising….

And lastly my most anticipated anime for Summer 2012:

6) Sword Art Online 「ソードアート・オンライン 」Links: Official site -JP- | MAL | ANN
Premiere date: July 7
Animation studio: A-1 Pictures (Anohana, Tsuritama, Kannagi)

This one is exclusive only for infonochikara readers, not planning to post it @ Minitheatre. When I watched the PV in the first place, it feels like I’m watching Fate/Zero which was ended not long ago. That’s because that epic music is being done by Yuki Kajiura whom composed OSTs for Fate/Zero, Puella Magi Madoka Magica & also most songs that performed by Kalafina. If you’re a fan of MMORPGs including me, you should watch this. Accel World did well so far, so we’ll wait & see how this series will turn out.
