Visual guide v2.0

Here are both the Spring visual guide and anime schedule for 2012. Included is everything from new TV series premieres to Blu-ray only episodes. If you discover any missing titles from the list below, please let me know and I’ll add it as soon as I can.

Personally looking forward to — Fate/Zero S2, Korezon S2, Saki spin-off, Accel World, QB Rebellion, and Eureka Seven Ao.
