Since the Oscars and the Annie Awards are shunning anime films, again, let’s talk about the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2018 nominees and I will tell you what I am voting for.
Round one has already closed and round two is ending today, however, round three opens tomorrow. So if you haven’t voted already, you still have a bit of time left.
Also before we continue I won’t be talking about every category as I fell behind on this year’s anime so I didn’t vote for categories that had none of the animes I saw.
First up, Best Ending.
I was torn between Ishukan Communication and Hikari, Hikari from Miss Koybasahi’s Dragon Maid and Recovery of an MMO Junkie respectively.
I loved both animes and consider them my favourites of the year so it was hard for me to pick.
Ultimately I chose Hikari, Hikari as I liked the song a bit more and the visuals were a bit more interesting, dare I say reliable too.
Best Animation was also a tough pick for me. Once again I had to pick from Miss Koybasahi’s Dragon Maid and another anime I loved. Although this time it was a movie, namely A Silent Voice. I wrote a review about it a while ago if you want to check it out, here you go.
While I liked the animation and art style in Miss Koybasahi’s Dragon Maid I have to confess that not only did I love the animation in more A Silent Voice but it made me cry multiple times when I first saw it. So the clear winner of my vote was A Silent Voice. I also voted for it in the Best Film category.
The hardest category for me to vote in was Best Comedy. Again Miss Koybasahi’s Dragon Maid was a contender but so was Osomatsu-San Season 2, Gamers! and KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! Season 2.
In the end, I went with KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! Season 2 as it made me laugh the most.
Recovery of an MMO Junkie got my vote for Best Slice of Life and will get my vote for Best Girl. What can I say, Moriko Morioka stole my heart from the first episode.
My Best Boy vote will go to Kazuma from KonoSuba: God’s Blessing on this Wonderful World! as his reactions to the crazy hijinks around him and the idiots, he needs to put up with an already hilarious show extra comedic on top of that he is my favourite character in the show.
Now, if you will excuse me, I have to try to catch up on my anime watch list.
