So basically what are your top 3 shows of the season and why?

Mine are:

1. 91 days - Brilliantly unconventional for a anime. Pacing is good and no episodes so far have been just a filler load of nothing.

2. Mob Psycho 100 - Has a distinct art style. Started off a bit slow but keeps getting better and better. Never fails to make me laugh

3. Danganronpa 3 future arc - I really enjoyed the first series. The show is tying off loose ends about the first series and although its not as good as the original, it still has me hooked.


Honorable mention:

Re:Zero - This show would be second in my list however, although it is still airing, It is a continuation show of spring 2016 and therefore doesn't fit into this season.

1. Mob Psycho 100: the art is unique and the animation is spectacular. The characters are great, especially Mob and his struggle to change as a person. And of course the humour that was also present in One Punch Man is still just perfect.

2. Tales of Zestiria the X: finding a video game adaptation that is actually good is very rare, and Ufotable is doing an unbelievable job with Tales of Zestiria. The story may be a bit generic, but the characters are all really likeable and the animation is gorgeous as expected from Ufotable. Probably the best animated show of the year along with Mob Psycho 100.

3. 91 Days: for me, 91 Days is a breath of fresh air in this season. Mature stories like this one are not common in anime, and this one doesn't disappoint. The pacing is great and everything is building up to a great and powerful climax.

It's sad to see that the new Berserk adaptation wasn't as great as I would've liked. Berserk is the best manga I've read in my life, and had the adapatation been better, it would have been my number 1 show from this season and possibly of the year.

1. Orange - Soothing and emotional at the same time.

2. Aldermin in the sky - Intoxicating and very interesting.

3. Sweetness and Lightning - Refreshing and inspiring.

Honorable Mention:

Food Wars - Nothing to say I just can't stop watching it :)

There are so many others like The Morose Mononokean, Re:Zero, This Art Club has a problem, New Game etc.

2. Food Wars! - not your typical shonen series, this one has lot humor, great OST and... food looks so delicous as always!

3. Taboo Tattoo - something dark is needed in this summer so this one does it. And hey, there's also a bit of romance!

1. Mob Psycho 100 - already knew it was the shit from reading the manga. Creator ONE only puts out great material and it's just as much of a masterpiece as one punch man

2. Berserk - It's Berserk. I really don't care about how critical other people are about it

3. DAYS - Ever since finishing Haikyu months back I've been liking more sports anime. Even for people who don't really enjoy watching much sports in real life like me, sports anime can be whats right for you. (Battery has been a pretty solid series so far this season as well. although you wont find that on CR... or at least for right now)

91 days is the shit and quite a few others. After such a great spring season I wasn't sure if summer was going to be able to top but it's right up there with it

Hmmm.... Not including Re:Zero, and the fact that I'm waiting to watch all of Food Wars! in one go (which could easily be top 1), I'd have to say,

1. Orange, because if you watch and listen closely, this show is absolutely genius.

2. NEW GAME! because I haven't so excited for a Monday in a very long time, and it makes me want to make gems.

3. Sweetness and Lighting or Mob Psycho 100, I cried on the first episode, and I love that blonde haired dude.

... okay, so well, I haven't actually seen past the first episode of the third option... because I'm saving them as well... just trying to save the goodness, cause this summer has a lot to offer. Also, ReLIFE deserves an honorable mention for having great bingability, and a sick ost.

91 Days - I'm a sucker for a good mob story and man does this ever deliver.

Alderman on the Sky - I'm really enjoying this series and its characters thus far. That flashback episode had some really good writing in my opinion. (Freaking boss wolf though!) Also, Madhouse.

Amanchu! - I used to always avoid the slice of life genre like the plague, but now that I've learned to appreciate it a bit more I'm finding myself really enjoying stuff like this. I also find myself relating to Futaba Ooki as someone who deals with some pretty bad social anxiety.

I'd say some honourable mentions have to go to the following:

The Disastrous life of Saiki K. - The joke about him basically creating every anime trope known to man with his powers pretty much killed me.

Arslan - It's a second season so I didn't want to count it in my top 3, but I really love these political war dramas though. >,..,<;

Mob Psycho 100 - Mob is pretty much me in a nutshell (in a fair amount of ways, anyway ha ha), plus it's Bones animation and One's work so I've really come to love this one.

1. Mob Psycho 100 - Great artwork here. Love how it's not in your face comedy. Also, loved one-punch man! Should be on everyone's top list this season.

2. 91 Days - It's cool to see how they recreate the era of prohibition. I like the drama and the family ties. From episode one I was hooked. Can;t wait to see how this finishes.

3. Taboo Tattoo - Before you start hating, Look, I like the idea of this anime. I just want to see where the concept will go. I think the story is rich, has a lot of potential, all I can do is root for them on the sidelines.
