Crunchyroll Anime Awards are Back!

2017 was an amazing year for anime and the time for reminiscing has come. Hardcore shounen fans got their fix through the second seasons of Attack on Titan and My Hero Academia. Drama was in full effect with titles like Ancient Magus Bride and March comes in like a lion. And CGI finally hit it’s stride in the beautiful Land of the Lustrous. Here are this year’s nominees that Crunchyroll’s esteemed Panel of judges thought deserved the highest of praise.

Crunchyroll’s Judges were spot on with these selections. Every nominee had a strong showing in their respective categories but there can only be one winner. The Anime Awards Show will be held at the Ricardo Montalban Theater in Los Aengles, California on Saturday, February 24th. But for early winner reveals you can join Rogue Shogunate on Sunday as we release a special Edition “Crunchyroll Anime Awards” Podcast in which we rack and stack each nominee and give you our winner for each category!
