1 - Arslan Senki (The Heroic Legend of Arslan)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Drama, Fantasy, Historical, and Supernatural
Anime Summary: Long ago, a kingdom by the name of Pars was ruled by the mighty King Andragoras who has never been defeated nor overpowered in a battle. As a result, the kingdom of Pars and its capital, the city of Ecbatana, always stood proud and tall in the face of adversary. Success, wealth, prosperity, glory, and security – the kingdom of Pars was at its golden age, so who would have thought that one day…it would crumble in instability at the blink of an eye?
Enter Aslan - the prince, the son of King Andragoras, and the heir to the throne. At one glance, he’s everything a mighty king like his father is not. He looks weak, kind-hearted, feeble, and very innocent. But on his 14th year of life, his tragic maiden battle overturned everything and started his grueling journey to becoming the king. And thus, the boy shall become king!
Why it's a Must-Watch: As far as historical shows go, Arslan Senki is surely going to be an epic one! It has often always been the case and based on how I see things now, this anime might even surpass my expectations. When I say epic, I mean EPIC, and this show has all the elements of an epic anime show in place! You don’t believe me? Then I suggest you watch it now so that you won’t ever regret anything! All the signs surrounding Arslan Senki are pointing to greatness!

2 - DanMachi (Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?)
Genre: Action, Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy, and Romance
Anime Summary: In the city of Orario, a vast dungeon with countless monsters, extravagant riches, endless mysteries and thrills is the waypoint for adventurers and thrill-seekers alike. As a matter of fact, guilds with gods and goddesses as their foundation of power and support rose up for the very cause of conquering the dungeon. And with the gods and goddesses with their guilds gaining fame and popularity day-by-day, one goddess by the name of Hestia looms in the corner all by herself and with the big dream of gaining a sizable amount of followers herself.
Starting his very own adventure and submerging himself in his dreams of becoming the best of adventurers, Bell Cranel finds himself as the first and only member of Hestia’s guild. At first, he’s all weak and noobish when it comes to everything he’s trying to do and achieve. But, as fate has it, he actually has the rare skill of growing faster and stronger depending on how willed his feelings are. And so, his journey begins unsure of the great future, but something sure in mind – he gonna reach for his dreams and bring unparalleled success to the guild of Hestia…and pick up girls on the side!
Why it's a Must-Watch: DanMachi? Well, that’s shortcut for “Dungeon ni Deai wo Motomeru no wa Machigatteiru Darou ka” which translates to “Is It Wrong to Try to Pick Up Girls in a Dungeon?” At first, it might seem like another generic anime with an iltra-long totle that says it all but, this is actually nothing like that! This is actually an action-adventure anime with some romance by the side that’s somewhat luring viewers to watch it. It’s actually quite good and has a big amount of surprise coming out its sleeves, so I can say that it’s worth it! Besides, it has the most popular and most renowned girl of this season – Hestia!

Anime Summary: An impenetrable bubble wrapped the whole city of New York and a dimensional gate opened for residents of the netherworld to crossover!

Years after, an unknown force threatens to break out of the bubble and release the chaos upon the remaining world.

5 - Plastic Memories
Genre: Drama and Sci-Fi

These androids are called “Giftias”, and they cater feelings and emotions that transcends even just memories. Unfortunately, these giftias don’t live longer than their shelf life.

And thus, retrieval companies were born for that very purpose!
Tsukasa Mizugaki is young man who was offered a position -with the help of his father’s connections- in a giftia retrieval company.

But, as work goes inevitably on, he shall discover that his retrieval job can be as heart-wrenching as it can be liberating.
Why it's a Must-Watch: Plastic memories may not have a manga, a light novel, or any background to tell what it’s really going to be but, it being an original creation at its debut makes it all the more exciting and sensational. I’ve seen its very first episode and was pleasantly surprised that it really fosters a dramatic atmosphere. It’s so dramatic that tears have been shed off already right off the bat! I’m sure it’ll do the same to you, and if it’s headed towards the right direction, the train of feels will probably reach a new height. For the drama tag, Plastic Memories is definitely a must-watch!
