Air TV is based around summer and has a very beautiful summer feel.

Shuffle - plenty of fanservice but still a spring/summer feel for a lot of it.

Gunslinger Girl inc Il Teatrino - It has more of a feel of summer maybe due to it being based in Italy.

Sister Princess - Harem style brother with his sisters on an island.

Kaleido Star inc New Wings - It's Cirque du Soleil as an anime. It is bright and dark like summer and it's storms.

Summer Wars, of course. About half of the Ghibli catalogue is pretty summery: Totoro, obviously, or Kiki or Porco Rosso. [but not Ponyo, which is autumn...]

Hrm. In japan, summer is a time for ghost stories [long evenings -> time for storytelling, and the shivers can help you stay cool]. Dusk Maiden of Amnesia, say, or Dennou Coil. Maybe Hell Girl, but I think episodic shows work better for the winter. For the summer you want something with a plot to it, something where you can watch three episodes in a row without being worried you've just put the DVD player on title repeat.

If not ghosts, then fireworks: there's a little show from a few years ago, Oh Edo Rocket, that I'm quite the fan of. Don't know any other fireworks anime.

... Fireworks, summer, and ghost stories? Why, there's only one choice: Grave of the fireflies! Twisted Evil

"Uta Kata" is also a very summer-type series.
As is the previously mentioned "Hell Girl" (I recall watching all of season 1 in a sitting in summer, it feels very summerish despite an episodic nature in my opinion)

Another good one is the sort-of-sequel to "Someday's Dreamers" (I haven't seen the first, but I imagine it would be good too) "Mahoutsukai ni Taisetsu na Koto: Natsu no Sora". heck, Summer is IN the title (by that logic I guess "Waiting in the Summer is another candidate)

Like I said, ghost stories. The problem with episodic shows -- well, monster-of-the-week shows, which Hell Girl essentially is -- is that if I watch more than one in a row I get bored by the 45min mark. If you don't mind the repititition then that's fine, it's just a personal thing.

I think last summer I burned through Ghost Hunt, which is structured as mini-arcs, I think two-to-four episodes long. Based off a novel series, each arc representing one story. I like it.

Or you could watch Heathy Naked Swimming Club Umishou. [yes, it's a real program. from the mangaka of sankarea...]
