Summer can mean a few things: Frolicking in unbearable humidity until your skin is a festering wreck, or cuddling up next to the AC and binge-watching anime. No judgment here.

Kotaku East’s Brian Ashcraft wrote up our Summer 2016 Anime Guide last month with nearly 50 listings. Below, I’ve narrowed down this summer’s anime bounty into my top five recommendations, as well as a few honorable mentions. Happy watching!

Mob Psycho 100

Studio: BONES

Currently at: episode 4

Plot Summary: Mob, an apparently unremarkable middle-school ESPer, explodes when his emotional level reaches 100. He works for the charlatan psychic Reigen Arataka, who purports to be his mentor

Why You Should Watch It: remarkable artistic ingenuity, hilarious, made by One-Punch Man’s creator



Orange

Studio: Telecom

Currently at: episode 5

Plot Summary: High school girl Naho receives a foreboding letter from herself ten years in the future, warning her about falling in love with transfer student Kakeru

Why You Should Watch it: tender vibes, nuanced character development, well-paced



The Heroic Legend of Arslan: Dust Storm Dance

Studio: Liden Films

Currently at: episode 5

Plot Summary: Arslan is a crown prince who seeks to liberate the nation Pars

Why You Should Watch it: based on Persian epic, gorgeous scenery, impeccable world-building, well-executed fantasy



91 Days

Studio: Shuka

Currently at: episode 5

Plot Summary: As a child, Avilio’s family is murdered by the mafia. Seven years later, during Prohibition, Avilio seeks revenge and enters the black market business after receiving a curious letter

Why You Should Watch It: dark intrigue, Italian-inspired, suspenseful



Berserk

Studio: GEMBA

Currently at: episode 6

Plot Summary: The mercenary Guts cuts down demons and men alike in his quest for revenge and redemption

Why You Should Watch it: classic anime franchise, cutting-edge animation, controversial



Honorable mentions: Food Wars! Shokugeki no Soma Season 2, Amanchu!, Tales of Zestiria the X

I've closed this for a couple of reasons.

1) The content of the post doesn't match the title of your post

2) We do already have a thread for listing and talking about our favorites of Summer 2016. Feel free to repost this there:

/forumtopic-954549/summer-2016-favorites-or-not

(you might want to update your post a bit to reflect that these shows currently have more episodes aired than what you indicated in your post and thread description (there are 8, not 5, episodes of Arslan Dust Storm Dance aired already)

As to whether or not CR is getting Arslan, we'll just have to wait and see if it's announced as part of the partnership deal.
