Summer 2012 Anime List

This list is meant to provide an overview of all Summer 2012 Season Japanese new anime releases announced to air soon on Japanese television or to be released as anime DVD/Blu-Ray.

If you see no further specified airing date information for an anime title than the year of release, then that means in most cases that the anime studios working on that title has announced their anime to be available on Japanese television or available in stores as DVD in the near future, while not giving any specific timeframe. In those cases we often have to wait between 3 and 12 month to see that anime.
