Initial thoughts:

EDIT (Adding a preface): I thought I'd add my feelings on the setup an nominees this year as well. It feels like they've done a better job on the nominees than last year, and left most of the popularity choices to Best Boy/Girl... Now it doesn't feel like there was a big Idol or Fujoshi fanservice show this year the way Yuri on Ice was last year, but they also didn't toss things in catagories that weren't deserved this year (All the Best Animation nominees had great animation, All the drama feel like drama was the point, etc) Lets give them a second chance on this then!

Best Villain: STAIN, this was maybe the easiest choice.

Best Hero: Deku, though Akko was a close second... Chise's show is still ongoing, and I haven't watched made in Abyss yet.

Best Slice of Life: From the Choices, I'd have to pick Girls Last Tour

Best Score: I'm going with Ancient Magus' Bride for this one, unless Made in Abyss ends up being awesome in this respect.

Best ED: "ISHUKAN COMMUNICATION" (Dragon Maid), I also liked "KIRAMEKU HAMABE" but it just couldn't beat the upbeatness of Dragon Maid's song

Best OP: Crazy hard pick, tossup for me between "Here" (The Ancient Magus Bride), "The Other Side of the Wall" (Princess Principle), and "IMAWA NO SHINIGAMI" (DESCENDING STORIES: SHOWA GENROKU)... I think for me it'll be "Imawa No Shinigami"

Best Manga: Abstain, I don't know any of them (I mostly only read off of CR manga now)

Best Film: Haven't seen any of them, but I know it would be a tossup between "A Silent Voice" and "Your Name". Since the manga was great for A Silent Voice and Your Name broke records

Best Girl: Akko, hands down due to [Censored for Spoilers] ... Chise is good too, but if I treat this like best Actress, I'd go with Akko... Of course, I think it'll go popularity contest to Serval though. I think I'd have a tossup if Land of the Lustrous' Phosphophyllite was on here.

Best Boy: YAKUMO YUURAKUTEI, I like most of the others in a popularity sense, but I feel like Yakumo is the best done character.

Best Drama: "DESCENDING STORIES: SHOWA GENROKU RAKUGO SHINJU SEASON 2", if Made in Abyss is as good as people say, maybe this could change ... I like "March comes in like a Lion" and "The Ancient Magus' bride" but they're both still going and this is Rakugo's last chance...

Best Continuing Series: March Comes in Like a Lion... MSG:IBO was good, but it can't compete with the March... and the rest..... just no

Best Comedy: Ko-No-Su-Ba! lets move on

Best CGI: Land of the Lustrous! lets move on

Best Animation: Wow this is hard, all my favorite studios (Bones, Shaft, KyoAni, Trigger) ... I think I'm going to have to give it to Little Witch Academia though (I've seen all of these except A Silent Voice, and I read the manga & love KyoAni ... so)

Best Action: Land of the Lustrous ... Boy, MSG:IBO can't compete with most stuff this year, I love Mecha but it just can't do it.

ANIME OF THE YEAR: ... I have to go watch Made in Abyss before I can comment.....what a good year though

Best OP: Konosuba 2. None other comes remotely close.

There's an awful lot of categories this year where picking just one show is incredibly hard or where I have to abstain from voting because I feel neither of the choices are a good fit or I just don't know enough to make an informed choice because I don't follow the series.

Best OP: My personal favorite was BBB&B but that's not a choice, out of the available nominees I liked Rakugo's OP best

Best ED: Dragon Maid

Best Film: This is a tough one. I'm torn between A Silent Voice and Your Name. I'll have to mull this over for a bit longer but right now I'd probably pick Your Name if pressed.

Best CGI: Land of the Lustrous

Best Score: The Ancient Magus' Bride

Best Animation: I feel like all of these were great in their own way, going by personal preferrance: A Silent Voice

Best Action: BBB&B

Best Drama: A lot of great choices but I feel like Rakugo deserves my vote the most

Best Slice-of-Life: Recovery of an MMO Junkie. That one hit almost too close to home.

Best Continuing Series: All signs point to me sitting this one out. If I were to vote I'd likely pick March comes in like a lion or Case Closed

Best Girl: Akko

Best Boy: Yakumo Yuurakutei

Best Hero: This one I'll definitely abstain from. None of the nominees feel right to me

Best Villain: See above. I really like Tanya as a character but s/he's not really the villain of the series, that role would fall to Being X

Anime of the Year: I honestly can't decide here. It's a toss up between March comes in like a lion, Rakugo and Land of the Lustrous.

Best Manga: Another one where I'll pass, I only ever read a few chapters of two nominees.

Edit: Missed one of the Categories
Best Comedy: Definitely Dragon Maid for me.

I am in shock that they were ignored. None of the nominees compare and I don't think it can be argued that they do...

There's already a thread for discussing the CR Anime Awards, so I've closed this one. Please post there.
