It's been a bit more than a week since the Anime Awards, and the dust has long settled with Made in Abyss standing tall as Anime of the Year! For this year's Awards, the winners of each category were determined by both our independant team of judges and the public, with equal weight given to both groups of votes. At the end of last week, we revealed who won the judges' vote on our weekly streaming show It's Friday, and thought it would be fun to compare the list of overall winners with the judges' picks right here!
You can check out last Friday's stream right here or just scroll down directly to compare the award winners with who the judges voted for!
And there you have it! There was a fair bit of difference between the popular vote and what the judges picked, and I think looking at those differences gives us a fun, interesting look into how the winners were selected! Thanks for reading, and see you next Anime Awards!!
