My Top Anime for 2011

Happy New Year everyone! This post is very late because, well, I had a awful start to my Christmas vacation--caught a fever and have been feeling sluggish ever since. Haven't done much and the result is delay in the things I wanted to do. Adding to the delay was my purchase of a new monitor that led to rewatches and viewings galore...

The 2 shows that didn't get a first place ranking had 2 second-place rankings each.

Since I wasn't able to do the Spring impressions, I'm combining it with a post about the Summer anime season.

First the dropped shows.  Actually I already had some sort of 'feeling' that these shows might get the axe (except for Bakuman).  But I make them official with this post.
