Winter Anime 2016 Awards


Voting Ends On April 28, 2016 23:00 PST
Which is also my B-day :DDDD




Ohakonyapachininko! Damn is it that time of the season again? With the Winter anime season wrapping up I, Swagggercandy, who is also your host, thought that it would be a good time to get this thing started. Of course not all shows have been finished by the time I post this but you can reserve a spot or get some votes in if you want. But you know how these things go already, but if you are new do not worry, your participation is welcome.

So was the Winter season to your liking? Is DEEN making their comeback? Is Sekkou Boys AOTS or will is be ousted by the ever popular ERASED? Is CG slowly making its way into your heart? Did you know a lot of long runners are ending like Gintama, Fairy Tail, World Trigger, and Aikatsu? Why am I asking you all these questions? We will decide this in these awards. Anyways lets gets this started!


RULES


- Anyone can vote! However, please don't make accounts just to vote in the awards. Any suspicion of this action taking place will result in your vote not counting.

- You can only vote in ONE show per category. If you do end up putting two choices I will take the first one you put down.

- You can edit your vote at any time if you need to.

Disclaimers

1) I am adding RWBY to these awards. NOW WHETHER YOU THINK THIS IS AN ANIME OR NOT IS YOUR OWN OPINION. IT'S SIMPLE AS NOT VOTING FOR IT.

2) There is now a Sports Category since there are a number of sports that have ended this season like Haikyuu and Ace of Diamond AOKANA, and Prince of Stride. You can now vote for a sports, (This category probably won't be back next season)

3) NOW WHETHER YOU THINK AOKANA OR RATHER FLYING CIRCUS IS A SPORT....lol jk This one is for it doesn't matter which category you put a certain show in, you can put for example She and Her Cat as best comedy if you wanted but just saying it is up to you as to how you classify things

Happy Voting! Let's Make this a fun one.

Thanks for participating and taking the time out of your busy lives to create a vote for these awards.

Got a lot of variety is some categories but I need to stop talking so get your scrolling finger ready for that work out!

Some tough calls here and there as it was overall a very strong season but I'm pretty set on all of my choices. The toughest calls were probably in OP, overall cast and female character (I really loved Chika from Haruchika but Miyo from Rakugo is just too good). Best short was also surprisingly tough to call with Galko winning out just because it went a whole season whereas the also excellent Tabi Machi Lateshow was only 4 episodes. Best and Worst of the season were extremely easy calls.

Erased just couldn't hold on and fell apart at the end, meanwhile KonoSuba constantly kicked up another notch with its outlandish humor and straight up blunt characters. If Haikyuu's cast wasn't so stacked I would have given it to KonoSuba as well.

Gintama continues to adapt the manga and make it so much more for the anime. It is the highest quality show you can find. Shōwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjū was the best new show and the writing was outstanding. Picking the OP was extremely difficult. Voting against AKFG's Re:Re (I purchased their Import CD Sol-fa real fast back in the day) and Know Know Know by DOES seemed like a crime, but Shōwa's theme really sets the tone. It's always a pleasure to see Megumi Hayashibara at play, who got best OP and female character.

I went a little bit overboard and wrote a bunch of justifications for my picks (plus runner-ups where I had a hard time choosing)...

Best Story Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû
A tragic story about complex love, changing times and the art of storytelling itself, told partly through stage performances. SGRS was a fascinating story told masterfully, to the point that nothing else came close this season.

Best Animation Lupin III Part IV
Beautiful. So beautiful. Be it the art direction or the animation itself, you can definitely tell that a LOT of care (and Italian co-pro money) went into making this the most beautiful Lupin anything since maybe Castle of Cagliostro. Damn, this show.

Best OP Lupin III Part IV - "Theme of Lupin III 2015" (You and Explosion Band)
Everything about this opening is pure, refined confidence. It's catchy, it's beautiful, it fits the show perfectly, it's classic yet updated to fit the time and setting... There was no choice here.

Best OP runner-up 1 ERASED - "Re:Re:" (Asian Kung-Fu Generation)
And yet, I do have a runner-up. The song on its own is better than Lupin's theme, IMO, but the direction, while full of interesting ideas, is less coherent. There's a little too much happening here and too little binding it together visually, but, well, there was no way one of AKGs best songs would not AT LEAST get a nod from me.

Best OP runner-up 2 Assassination Classrom - "Question" (3-E Utatan)
Finally, AssClass has an actually good opening! Last season's two themes were pretty embarassingly bad, but with its third theme, the show finally has what I would consider THE theme song. The disparate voices of the various VAs mix together smoothly in a song that tempers the gung-ho attitude of the previous themes with some much-needed restraint and a really catchy third part. The visuals also play with the style established earlier to create some interesting sequences.

Best ED ERASED - "Sore wa chiisana hikari no you ni" (Sayuri)
This time ERASED wins out with this beautiful song accompanied by equally beautiful, stylish animation. The busy style that hampered the OP is more powerful here, probably because the flat style holds it together as a unit. A lot of the images here ultimately didn't have much to do with the content of the show, but man was it beautiful.

Best ED runner-up 1 Lupin III Part IV - "Chanto Iwanakya Aisanai" (Sayuri Ishikawa)
Classy, atypical and incredibly stylish. It's not often you get an enka song for an anime theme song, and even rarer that it fits the show as well as this one does, conveying a feeling of nostalgia and passion that could just as easily have been italian instead of japanese. The visuals, which tell a simple little story of a Fujiko caper, are nice too.

Best ED runner-up 2 Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans - "STEEL -tekketsu no kizuna-" (TRUE)
I think I actually like this one better than the much-hyped ED1. The song is haunting while still being restrained and the (rarely-seen, due to the show's tendency to have credits run over parts of an episode) visuals, while mostly still images, have a very beuatiful pastel style and hammer in the rough warmth of the Tekkadan family.

Best OST Lupin III Part IV (Yuji Ohno)
Funky is the best way to describe Lupin's score, which pays homage both to the franchise's 70s roots and this season's Italian setting - and like everything about this show, makes it look easy.

Best OST runner-up ERASED (Yuki Kajiura)
ERASED's soundtrack is Kajiura at her most restrained. While a few of the telltale Kajiura touches are still in there, this soundtrack is surprisingly low on the faux-greek choirs and sweeping strings one would expect from her, showing more range than I would have expected and fitting the more restrained show it's attached to extremely well.

Best Action Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
On some level, I find it wrong to even hand out this award in a post-One Punch Man world. Nothing this season had a chance of living up to that juggernaut, so my pick is mostly based on the novelty of IBO being a show made in 2016 with hand-animated robot battles that didn't look like crud. Apparently that's Gundam's thing, but it threw me for a loop, being used to Macross Frontier, Code Geass and the like.

Best Adventure Lupin III Part IV
With Lupin, it's always a good time. Every weekly caper was an adventure in itself, as was the overarching storyline - 'endless' shows like Lupin are all about the journey and the fun we have along the way, and Part IV had no shortage of fun.

Best Comedy Osomatsu-san
Anime comedy rarely makes me laugh. Osomatsu-san was a rare exception to that rule. Daily Lives of High School Boys was another. Looking at the staff, I should probably watch Gintama some day...

Best Drama Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû
Oh my god, this show. A truly adult, restrained period drama in anime? That's the kind of thing that warms my cold approaching-30 heart.

Best Ecchi Please tell me, Galko-chan
Three girls talking might not be what you'd normally consider ecchi, but they sure did discuss some raunchy things, so I'd say it counts.

Best Fantasy ABSTAIN
Nothing I watched this season really qualifies, and while I'd normally just nominate something that barely fits anyway, everything I've been hearing says that this award should go to Grimgar of Fantasy and Ash, so I'm bowing out here.

Best Harem Osomatsu-san
A harem is when one character of one gender is pursued by multiple charcters of the other gender without choosing one of them, right? In that case, I nominate the Matsuno Bros + Totoko for Best Harem.

Best Mystery ERASED
To be quite honest, the 'mystery' in ERASED was probably the least interesting thing about the show - its direction, character portrayals and themes of child neglect and communal responsibility were all more interesting and better handled that the central whodunit (especially since there really was only one option). But I didn't watch any other mystery shows this season, so ERASED wins this on a technicality.

Best Supernatural Durararax2!! Ketsu
Another technicality. I don't think ERASED's one supernatural element qualifies it here, and Osomatsu-san is surreal rather than supernatural, so DRRR takes the prize for showing up.

Best (B)romance Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû
It's still a romance if it ends in tragedy, right? Whether the relationship between Kikuhiko and Sukeroku should be understood as a romance or a bromance is ultimately unclear, but no matter your interpretation, their bond and the way their story is told was outstanding.

Best Science Fiction Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
IBO is far from flawless, but one thing it did very well was portray a believeable lived-in sci-fi world, complete with class struggles, farming (on Mars!), labor disputes, and even Space Costco.

Best Sports ABSTAIN
I didn't watch anything that could be considered sports, not even on a technicality.

Best Slice of Life Please tell me, Galko-chan
Wins this on a technicality, since I don't think anything else I watched this season qualifies. Talking about tampons with your friends in class, though, is the truest slice-of-life I've ever seen in anime.

Best Short Series (2-10 minutes) Sekko Boys
The purest manifestation of 'let's see how bizzare we can make girl-aimed anime' absolutely deserves an award. Several awards. Take all the awards.

Best Male Character Bon/Kikuhiko/Yakumo Yurakutei, Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû
Where do you even begin with Kiku? Restrained, arrogant, insecure and tragic, Kiku grows from a sullen little boy to a bitter old man over the course of the show, but it's far from a straight line from point A to point B. SGRS is much too true to life for that. Instead, we see triumphs and failures as Kiku grows kinder, then colder, several times over and his opinions and relationships shift along the way. Not to mention seeing him grow from a disatrous performer with only disdain for rakugo to a true master of his own, slightly unsettling, style was magical.

Best Female Character Kudelia Aina Bernstein, Mobile Suit Gundam: Iron-Blooded Orphans
Kudelia's an interesting play on the archetypical 'Princess' character so common in mecha shows largely thanks to the surprising amount of respect her journey is given by the script. When she discovers the hard way how her good intentions are born from privilege, rather than painting her as a naive upper-class girl deserving of our scorn, the narrative frames her as someone to relate to. Kudelia has flaws and weaknesses, but she is aware of them, known who she must become, and seems all the more human for it. More than anyone else in the cast (maybe with the excepton of Atra, another play on a stereotypical female role), Kudelia grows rapidly over IBO's 25 episodes, going from a hopeful dreamer to a politician completely in control of her own message and strategy.

Best Overall Cast Lupin III Part IV
These characters are enduring icons for a reason. It was a joy to watch a cast this fully-formed, played by voice actors who have truly mastered their parts, interacting every week. And the new characters fit seemlessly into the classic cast.

Best overall cast runner-up Osomatsu-san
I'm glad I gave these wonderful jerks the award last season, because they fully deserve it too.

Biggest Disappointment of Winter 2016 Durararax2!! Ketsu
I almost feel embarassed to only be giving it this award now, at the end of three 'meh' seasons, because at this point Durarara has been a disappointment for longer than it was ever good. Consider this the dishonorable version of Return of the King's Oscar.

Biggest Surprise of Winter 2016 Lupin III Part IV
Prior to this season, I think my total exposure to the Lupin franchise was one OVA watched half-asleep ten years ago, so it was basically curiosity that motivated me to try out this show and HOLY SHIT YOU GUYS IT'S SO GOOD. Everyone should watch Lupin. Yes, that includes you.

Best of Winter 2016 Shôwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjû
As if this wasn't obvious from how many awards I've flung at it already, SGRS takes the big prize with ease. There's not much more I can say about this wonderful, wonderful show except watch it.
