Is it just me or are there lots of kawaii desu anime next season?

Oh well, heavily anticipating Baka to Test S2.

too much moe for me ~ but I don't have much time to keep up with a lot anyway

I'm looking forward to previewing Blood-C, Blade, & Uta no☆Prince-sama♪ - maybe Kamisama no Memcohou

I started Blade, Ikoku Meiro and Ro Kyu Bu. First episodes are decent, but Ikoku Meiro wins by far out of the three. Simply too cute <3 (I'm not saying Blade is cute, just giving a general impression of how good the episode was xD )

I've seen Blade, Blood-C, Kamisama no Memchou, Ikoku Meiro no Croisee.

My fav so far is Blade. It seems true enough the comix, and the art isn't horrible. Could be better, but that's prob due to finances. I also wasn't disappointed with Blood-C, unlike a lot of people, but I'm not sure if I will like it or not. I at least dig the new Saya. Kamisama no Memchou is very much in the vein of Gosick. So, again unlike the masses, it bored me. The art is okay, story is okay, but it wasn't good enough to quell my boredom. Ikoku Meiro no Croisee on the other hand, was pretty damn cute. I hope it turns out good b/c it isn't the kind of show I usually watch. I really hope I don't get tired of it.

Still crossing my fingers for Uta no Prince-sama. That will prob be the last show I preview this time around.

I also watched Kamisama no Memochou and Sacred Seven. In my opinion they are both promising shows, and yes I kind of liked Gosick so inevitably I like Kamisama too.

Sacred Seven is simply over-the-top badassery with an art style that reminds me of Code Geass.

I couldn't resist previewing some more shows. (lol) I started Mawaru-Peguindrum, Nyanpire (against my aversion), & No. 6. Peguindrum has some wtfery in it. a little incest romance too, so I'm not sure how I'll like it. but, I'm going to keep watching it anyway probably. No. 6 seems better than I thought it would be. Kind of curious as to what will happen next. & Nyanpire is pretty cute. Pretty short too clocking in @ about 2 min. Also got the chance to check out Uta no Prince-sama, which is full of bishies as expected & the story seems good enough. I just hope I can keep up with all these shows, as summer has turned out to be busier than usual for me this year.

I've started Blood-C, it was okay, but I'm a bit disappointed. Expected something a little better. Maybe with the next episode...
Ikoku Meiro no Croisee very cute :3 Kamisama no Memchou was great, looking forward to the next episode. Sacred Seven was also very good.
Panning to watch No6 and Ro Kyu Bu... and maybe Usagi Drop (keep hearing good things about it and it made me curios)
Wanted to see R15 too, but even the cover is censored so I'll have to wait for the uncut release :(

Censored versions suck.

You might want to try Penguindrum as well by the way, it is crazy as hell :p
Next to that I'm also watching Itsuka Tenma no Kuro Usagi, Kamisama Dolls and Nyanpire. So far they seem like fine anime to me, I'm particularly interested in Kuro Usagi.
Also, Baka to Test to Shoukanjuu Ni is awesome.

So that totals the amount of anime I watch this season to 12 (without counting Nyanpire).

yeah, i know :( good thing that the dvd releases aren't censored.. at least for now :-S

I've seen Nyampire. The idea of a cat vampire is pretty funny. And just when I thought I've seen everything, the ending comes on. I was wtf is that...

OMG the ending is messed up ~ It sucks XD It's longer than the show too.

btw ~ my total watching this season is only six right now plus nyanpire too. I have done well to avoid temptation this time around ^_^ That said, I still might add 2 more. (Usagi Drop & anything I've missed that is said to be awesome ;)

I would never have tought that this summer had so many good shows TBH.
Bakatesto 2 starts as good as the first serie, so I'm digging it.
As for the new ones, the best ones I found are Itsuka tenma (even if I don' like shonen, I found this very enjoyable), Usagi Drop (for obvious reasons), kamisama no memo chou (because I'm a sucker for well done mistery) and Mayo Chiki (good comedy + good fanservice = win).
I also got my seasonal moe with R-15, Yuruyuri and Ryu-ku-bu, so I'm more than satisfied by this summer.

At last, I voted for no. 6.
Even if there are some shonen-ai moments (which I dislike) the plot is very interesting and the narration is very well done.
It's my most anticipted serie of this summer, surprisingly enough, because I've never guessed it watching the first episode.

No. 6 has really surprised me as well! Now I am trying to decide between it & Usagi Drop. I'll give both one more ep, but I can say it will prob be Usagi Drop. It is so emotional & I look forward to it most during the week now.

No.6 and Usagi drop are good, kamisama no memochou was kinda good too, but sacred seven and blood-c was disappointing. Are the other Blood series worth watching?

No.6 / Usagi / Dantalian no Shoka / Penguindrum / Baka to Test 2 / Kamisama Dolls / Ikoku Meiro no Croisée

that's my plan 2 watch list in summer. though, tecnically, i'll watch them only in September or later as i hate ongoing and prefer to watch something at one go.
hate capital letters.
deal with it.

It was a tie between baka test and usagi drop. but rin-chan's just tooooooo cute sooo my vote goes for usadrop.

rin is too cute xD !! Every episode makes me teary-eyed too & I can relate to it bc I've helped raise other people's kids on 2 separate occasions. It's hard to understand what kids want without ever having any of your own. but, it's very rewarding & makes you realize life is very precious thing. c:

After what happened with no.6, I can't vote for it anymore.
Mawaru penguindrum and Ro-kyu-bu are the best of the season, and at least they won't troll me with nonsensical writing.

now I'm really curious about what happened in No. 6. I'm only at ep 6 right now. Now I must watch it & hope for some sweet shounen ai. c= [plz don't ruin meh fantasy by telling me otherwise!!] Mawaru-Peguindrum strikes me as a little silly. I guess I'm kind of annoyed about having to watch the little Rock over Japan sequence every time. >_>

I pity you, noone should be forced to watch yaoi D:
I dropped No.6 as well because of the same reason.

As for what I liked, I keep my vote on Natsume s.3, this series never disappoints me. Usagi Drop was superb as well (and thankfully it ended at the right place).
Kamisama dolls wasn't too bad, it was just very uneven. I can't shake off the lame last episode either D:

Mutta is the ultimate moé.
