2012 might as well be the year of the hype train. We had a lot of promising titles this year and a few of them have failed to deliver. It’s also unfortunate that 2011 was a strong year, delivering one big hit after another. But as quiet a year 2012 may seem, it’s not that bad. So Black Rock Shooter, Guilty Crown and Sword Art Online all ran in the same year, but at the same time we had legitimately entertaining shows worth talking about.
