With the year just about over and the Mayan apocalypse finally behind us (what a fizzle that was, thank goodness), it's time to look back over our shoulder and remember the top anime releases of the year as reviewed here at Anime.About.com. First up: the year's new-title releases on DVD and Blu-ray Disc.
The criteria for this category are simple: they need to be titles released during 2012 in English or the United States which were reviewed here at Anime.about.com; which were never previously issued before on physical media; and which were the cream of the crop for the year.
As with last year, we kept the list to an even dozen. Check out our selections, and if there's a title you liked that we didn't get a chance to check out, sound off about it below!
