DONT VOTE. THE NOMINEES ARE SOMEONE ELSES CHOICES AND DONT REPRESENT YOU. NO FOOD WARS, NO DRAGON MAID, NO RESTAURANT TO ANOTHER WORLD. I agree with people saying ongoing series shouldn't take up slots that would be an opportunity for something else.

So... write-in your pick, then?

Of the AOTY nominees that I actually watched, I didn't strongly like any, so I guess I'll write in Girls' Last Tour. But it was nominated for Best Slice of Life.

Best Opening: Princess Principal, that represents me. I eventually picked Kado's OP as my #1, but here I voted for PriPri, it's a very strong song.

Best Film: I was kinda surprised to see Girls und Panzer der Film in there. Not sure whether my favorite film of the entire decade is that or Inception, but yeah. That nomination represents me.

Best Score: I'd say Girls' Last Tour, but I voted MiA for Hanezeve Caradhina alone, which has brought me to tears multiple times. (The rest of the MiA score is certainly diverse, but not really great IMO. I say that as a longtime serious listener of film scores.)

Dragon Maid is nominated for Best Comedy and Best Animation. I haven't seen half of the nominees in the animation category, so I won't vote.

Here we run into another problem: when a popular show isn't nominated for best show, fans will be (even) more likely to vote for it in any other category it is nominated in. For example, I loved Tsurezure Children and will probably vote for it in Best Comedy, even though I didn't love it for the laughs.

Best girl: Moriko Morioka. That represents me.

Best Hero: I didn't watch Magical Circle Guru Guru, but I want to vote for it anyway, because it looks like a hidden gem and because **** the system, man.

Food Wars not being there represents me, because I dropped the first season at 12 episodes.

No shit they weren't chosen by us...... Anyway, the three shows you mentioned are fucking great and some of my favourites last year with Food Wars being one of my all time favs. However this doesn't mean they are legitimately good.

Food Wars is anime Iron Chef with orgasmic fanservice and if it where to win in any non food related category then it must have been a really bad year for anime. Restaurant to another World is a very relaxing watch but let's face it, nothing happens, 0 rewatchability. End of story.

Then you have Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. A great show from start to finish, funny and touching, even it's final scene made me shed a manly tear, but when it is up against Konosuba for best comedy I'm sorry mate but it shouldn't stand a chance. Why do I say shouldn't? Because tragically, a lot of people are incapable of being critically objective when placing votes and will have other factors influence their decision such as progressive lesbianism ftw or dragon loli is too cute so I must vote for it no matter what the category is because, well, I have no idea why people are like that and I find it rather infuriating tbh.

Point is Dragon Maid WILL beat Konosuba for best comedy purely because it was more popular with over zealous tumblr fanz and CR thought it wise to allow votes to be spammed because.........I have NO FUCKING IDEA!! Plus there is an option to write in your vote.....
Don't get me wrong, I used it for best ed coz the nominees were trash and I expect to be the only person to have voted for Princess Principals ed. So dumb, these awards are literally worthless.

Do Dragon Dykes tickle your fancy or are genderless minerals more to your liking?

Konosuba was hilarious and refreshing. Konosuba 2 repeated the same jokes ad nauseam and left me with the impression of a tired, unfunny, annoying waste of time.

Konosuba 2 is ranked higher on MAL than Maid Dragon, and was completed by 270,312 users versus Maid Dragon's 199,779.

I think Dragon Maid should be up for Best Slice of Life rather than Best Comedy, but the SoL category is already crammed with good shows.

I'm sorry, I thought Konosuba was up for best comedy, not best original content....

As nice as it is to see Konosuba ranking higher than Dragon Maid, you will find that the offsite vote spam system that CR has implemented for these awards completely negates any relevance to the (encouraging) statistics of MAL and any polls done within it's own site and registered users who get one vote per show.

My fingers are crossed that Konosuba will win but the chances are slim, that said I am more than happy to eat crow if it does.

Yeah, it literally gave me a headache seeing that Magus' Bride wasn't nominated for Anime of the Year, and it got even worse when I saw it wasn't nominated for Best Animation. It really does make me question the judgment used during the nomination process. I mean, I love Dragon Maid, but Dragon Maid has no place being in Best Animation, with Magus' Bride being thousands of times more intricate and beautiful. Heck, I'd say Magus' Bride is almost as close to anime movie tier animation as a TV anime can get.

You asked, we're delivering!! ALL CATEGORIES FOR THE ANIME AWARDS ARE RE-OPENED FOR VOTING!! Get your votes in for all 17 categories by Sunday ~


Okay... so I wonder what the reasoning was behind the original schedule?

Also, I've been wondering whether the site accepting repeat votes might be a ruse to make people think they're successfully voting multiple times, so that they'll stay at that level and not try harder. CR is obviously aware of the way it works, since Miles replied in this thread.

Neither... This is done. They should close the thread.
