For the first time ever, I will import two series this season! It will be:
Ano Natsu de Matteru

Nisemonogatari has been a lock before it ever began. Bakemonogatari was the show that got me into importing and remains one of my top shows, so it was a given that I'd be buying the sequel.
I"ll be getting Ano Natsu de Matteru and Senki Zesshou Symphogear unless they really drop the ball in the remaining episodes.
Black Rock Shooter is looking pretty likely after episodes 4 and 5.

Nisemonogatari and Black Rock Shooter TV.
After having close to no expectations after how different it appeared to the OVA, Black Rock Shooter has blown me away. It's insane and fantastic.

The two shows that I'll be importing for sure this season are Nisemonogatari (I like Bake and this one has been fantastic so far, especially the last episode which was godly) and Zero no Tsukaima F (might as well finish the series. I own the first two seasons on blu-ray and I have the third on-order).
I'm contemplating on buying High School DxD since its actually been a pretty fun show, but its not a high priority (I might get it depending if there is anything from the spring season I want to pick up). BRS falls under the same category - its been decent so far and reading comments from the last few episodes pique my interest more (I've only watched up to episode 2 so far...been backlogged).
Moretsu Pirates and Inu x Boku - ill wait for Sentai to release these.

I've decided on seven this season:
- Ano Natsu de Matteru
- Mouretsu Pirates
- Natsume Yuujinchou Shi
- Inu x Boku SS
- Papa no Iu Koto wo Kikinasai!
- Rinne no Lagrange
Nisemonogatari and Natsume were guaranteed sequel imports.
AnoNatsu was one I was excited about because of the staff involved and it's delivered everything I was hoping for.
Mouretsu and Rinne complement each other nicely, and Mouretsu gets points for being one of the, if not the, cheapest shows per-episode that I've imported.
PapaKiki and InuBoku are just good shows, and the former really needs the support. It's going to be the lowest-selling show I import this season by far. InuBoku has actually been ranking pretty strongly lately, with DVDs almost equal to BDs and both near #100 when I had last looked. First volume could sell 5k first week. But it's discounted so I don't have much hope of the remaining volumes doing as well.
Seven shows, despite initially telling myself I'd do no more than three in a season. Still slightly cheaper than Spring '11 though, that was my most expensive season even though I imported less shows.

Since I'm currently restricted by various factors including still being undecided on whether I'll import Guilty Crown after all and the possibility of later seasons having shows I want to get, I'll only be importing Aquarion EVOL this season. It's such a blast with it's pretty production values and absurd writing that doesn't take itself seriously.

I'd like Nise, but I'd need subtitles. Too dialogue heavy for me. I'm looking towards spring for my next TV anime import. Natsuiro Kiseki looks cute.

I have already pre-ordered Recorder to Randoseru it is such a cute series. I will probably also be getting the Ano Natsu de Matteru Blurays sometime this year as well.
There's a fair number of shows I'm ejoying enough to keep watching, but none have quite generated enough passion to pass my buy-threshold.
But there's a couple I've only seen the first episode of, one of which is AnoNatsu, and that feels like it has a lot of potential. So once I get caught up, I wouldn't be surprised if AnoNatsu winds up on my shopping list.

Going with Nisemonogatari and Zero no Tsukaima F. Everything else I'll pick up when Neo-ADV releases it. I wanted to cut down to one show a season--especially with Strike Witches 2 coming out and going bi-monthly orders now. But I can't choose.

I will only import Nisemonogatari, because there are still some volumes of Haganai and Nichijou left (and there my pre-orders of the Fate/Zero and Kannagi boxsets), and I'm simply runing out money^^;. Normally I would also import Ano Natsu de Matteru but now I hope that Sentai will also release it on Blu-ray.
