With the new season getting rolling on Thursday, here's the coming season's weekly anime calendar, showing what days shows are on -- both new shows (in red) and continuing shows.
For each show, the calendar includes highlights of staff and cast members, and has links to info pages in English and Japanese (mainly Anime News Network and official sites), as well as links to AnimeSuki forums. I find these calendars useful myself, and hope some of you may, too.

As is often the case, Thursday looks like an interesting day, with new shows Shiki (horror - starts next week) and Amagami SS (romance), as well as Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu (fantasy adventure/comedy starring Fukuyama Jun, Takagaki Ayahi, Ono Daisuke, and Sugita Tomokazu); Ookami-san to Shichinin no Nakamatachi (a JC Staff school comedy with Itou Shizuka and Itou Kanae); the new season of Kuroshitsuji, with Mizuki Nana and Sakurai Takahiro; and continuing show Kaichou wa Maid-sama (shoujo comedy/romance).
Monday will see Highschool of the Dead (zombie horror from Madhouse), Seikimatsu Occult Gakuin (occult school comedy), and Nurarihyon no Mago (shounen supernatural comedy/adventure with Fukuyama Jun and Hirano Aya, and directed by the director of Simoun and true tears).
The new Sekirei series will be on Sundays, along with a list of enjoyable continuing shows: Yumeiro Patissiere, Giant Killing, and Uragiri wa Boku no Namae wo Shitteiru.
There is one potentially hilarious off-color comedy on Fridays (Mitsudomoe, set in elementary school, like Kodomo no Jikan or Kyou no Go no Ni). And there is another on Saturday (Seitokai no Yakuindomo, set in high school), along with the more standard catgirl harem ecchi of Asobi ni Iku yo.
As usual, nothing looks like being a masterpiece (except maybe Shiki). But also as usual, something may turn out to be better than we expect.
Watch out also for some interesting OVAs (listed in black), such as the Kure-nai OVA that will come out on Friday; and Yamakan's Black Rock Shooter, which will come out at the end of July. I've also listed a couple of near-hentai OVAs: the yuri Sono Hanabira ni Kuchuzuke wo Anata to Koibito Tsunagi, and a new Aki-Sora OVA. Both come out on July 30.
I know of two other useful anime calendars: mahou Showtime and AnimeCalendar.
