The Fall 2012 Anime Preview Guide links to the Fall 2012 Spotlight page but that page does not exist. (animenewsnetwork.com/anime-spotlight/2012/fall/)

Is the page not up yet (will it be up eventually?) or is the link wrong?

The links listed on that page are the individual shows featured in the spotlight. Each has its own location.

Am not sure I understand what you mean. The link I am referring to is the one in this sentence: "For a rundown of all the new shows to expect this season, check out our list here."

Usually (previous seasons) this would be one page with short blurbs about all the new shows of the season. Am not looking for individual show pages, just a general overview of the season.

The second link you provided in your first post goes to a page that says "sorry" but it has a link to each of the shows in the Fall Spot Light. It could have been done better but they are all there. It doesn't appear they got a lot of material this year.

I have not yet found a page listing all the upcoming shows, that would have been posted somewhat earlier. However the "Spotlight" is pages on individual shows.

The link is still clearly a mistake, that page is an error page. The only reason it displays links to the individual spotlights is because they have similar urls. It's doing this automatically in case someone mistyped a url. It's not what's supposed to be there.

This is the type of thing that is supposed to be there (this page is from the summer). It's not just a page for the spotlight shows, it's a page for ALL the shows, with links to spotlights for those that have them.

Maybe ANN's staff was so busy this season that they didn't have time to make a similar page, but including a link to a page that doesn't exist is still kind of odd.

Not up yet; it will be up eventually.

UPDATE: There, it's up now.
