I would like to nominate Hyouka for best anime of 2012. The plot was constantly creative, thoughtful, and interesting, and well written. All four of the main characters were incredibly memorable. The animation, character design, and backgrounds were masterfully done. "Watashi, Kininarimasu" is now part of my anime lexicon.

For best anime 2012, I vote for Chuunibyou. For people like me who used to be like some of those characters, you can sort of reconnect with yourself from the past while laughing over one of their jokes or imaginary battles; it's real nice.
I also nominate Hyouka
I nominate Kuroko no Basket.
A good example of an excellent adaption that even surpasses the manga, something you don't see that often. The success of the series and it's influence on the manga's popularity speak for itself.
I'm going to nominate Hyouka as the best New Anime 2012.
Kuroko no Basket
Kuroko no Basket - a great adaption of the manga, in my opinion it's even better than the original! Fun twist to sports anime, intense and good animation, overall awesome characters and voice cast. I really hope there will be a second season.
Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic - Mysterious, epic, emotional, super-funny, unique in its Arabian Night-esque setting, deepening plot,
even gives a great economic lesson, lovely characters. Add awesome music, a super-cast of voice actors, great fight-scenes and some really good animation, and you have a very good adaption of a very good manga. It's only been 11 episodes so far, and having read the manga, I can say it hasn't even reached the best parts yet. So much more to come.
I nominate Magi
I nominate JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.
I also nominate Chuu2 and Nisemonogatari.
I support Magi for reasons that relory said and Jojo as well.
Throwing my support for Jojo. I'll add Jormungand and Psycho-Pass
to the mix.
EDIT: I'm switching my vote from Jinrui to Psycho-Pass after catching up on episodes.
