Nah, you can be sure the Crunchy Awards won't have a "Best Breasts" category, but you'll be letting us write that in to hold Titania's, right?

Your awards are still very welcome and needed.

Edit: According to Miles, there were some changes to the way the judges picked shows this year so hopefully this means we'll see more than just the same few shows over and over again.


Interesting let's hope for the best with this one.

I hope it's held a bit later than it was last year. Part of the reason I felt YOI swept up most of the awards last season was probably because the voting took place not long after the fall season finished, and there was probably some hype left over. But then again, these are just a popularity contest, so there's a chance that MHA/AOT will probably grab everything anyway (I hope some of the lesser known titles get nominated though).

So at the very least, they learned from last year's criticism and will change the format a bit.

Looking back, Yoshikage Kira got robbed

Website is up.

http://www.theanimeawards.com/

Voting doesn't begin until another 28 days from now. There are some more categories, the judges look good, and according to the FAQ there will be 6 nominees this time (it was 4 last year). It even tells us the process of how the judges will choose nominees and how the voting will be handled.

It's still too early to breathe a sigh of relief, though, since we still can't see what shows are being chosen yet. The FAQ mentions that being legally streamed would be a criteria so I guess it won't be specific to just CR/Funimation shows this time? idk.

Hmmm... while I'm fairly confident that the judges will pick at least decent options in each category (I hope), the fact that public voting still has so much sway worries me. Especially with the voting process being a known quantity now I can easily see fanbases mobilizing just as they did year but this time with essentially an open invitation to things like 4chan unless there is some system in place to actually guarantee each voter only gets 1 vote (or 2 with web+mobile). The site right now just mentions that there will be a public vote but not how it will be conducted.

Put simply, and with last year as an example, even if Yuri On Ice was voted on using this years rules but last years numbers I believe it still would have or at least could have won every category it was up for.

It's an improvement but I'm not sure it's going to solve the obvious problems.

It's nice to see that they've included some new categories for this year.
Though the voting day is still quite a bit away

So you are asking for a panel of judges that literally cannot exist. Every review is with some degree of bias. A review without bias doesn’t exist.

No I'm asking for a panel that's not gonna say an anime is good just because they liked the previous season
