Winter 2017 Anime Awards


For updates check the 2nd post

Voting Ends On April 16, 2017 23:00 PST




Yes I know I am super late but hey I can now open the Winter 2017 anime awards! Yay! I usually start off with something like a catchphrase or something of the sort to open this but I couldn't really think of anything, and I don't want to call my voters Pig's Foot.

And usually this next paragraph has a lot of unnecessary references/puns that in a way connect to each other from various anime of the season. So I may or may not edit this later but yeah lets get this started with a BanG.

Things have slightly changed but if you are new please read below. It's a lot I know but its pretty simple.

but if you aren't going to read skip to the bottom and read the disclaimers and apologize with your belly for skipping

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 edit your vote at any time if you need to before time expires. (Addition: If you do not plan on editing your vote please add "final" or any variation of the sort to let me know that you have finished your vote and do not plan on editing. I will have your name on the second post to show that I have already counted your vote. If you see your name there and wish to change it please inform me via PM or quote. This will speed up the process greatly)

- 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.

EX: Best Music : Fuuka/BanG Dream

- I will count Fuuka and not BanG Dream

- Be respectful! Disrespect isn't cool. Just trying to put our preferences out there, don't force yours onto others. Keep salt levels to a minimum.

Disclaimers

1) Basically you can classify the show as whatever you want. For example you can vote for Tawawa on Monday as best action and it would be okay so don't be reluctant to put a show where you feel where it should be.

2)For the new VA category I urge you to put at least one show in which the VA stars in or the character they voice.

~ Ex:
Best Female VA: Hikasa Yoko (Demi-chan)
or
Best Female VA: Hikasa Yoko (Satou Sakie/ Demi-chan)


3) NEW CATEGORIES! : Best Male VA, Best Female VA, Special write in category

4) Regarding the best couple/ship, yes yaoi and yuri parings are okay but I urge you to put the show along with the names of the characters

~ Ex: Kanna x Saikawa (Dragon Maid)

5) WRITE-IN Category: So this is basically any category you want, you can name it what ever you want, Best hair, best bust, best show with a genki character, etc. If a lot of people have the same idea for write ins I may consider adding it to the results but this category is just for fun. I will add the categories mentioned though but not the nominees.

And that's basically it! Get hype! Cause it's lit Excited to see your opinions.

And now, two time champion Shouwa Genroku Rakugo Shinjuu: Descending Stories takes the Winter Trone once agin beating out Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid. Was actually a low turnout this time around but I blame my self for not moderating and bumping and letting people know that this was going on but next season I shall be on top of it due to the fact that I will be less busy and I am probably done buying games for now (was on Berseria/Nier: Automata/Persona 5 hype this season) so I'll have more time to spend with you guys *throws love* Anyways the write-ins are below and thanks again for participating see you in a couple of weeks <3

It made me so happy to see this thread pop up!

I'd rather ditch "adorable/cute" and keep non-human. I'm also not that big on Antagonist/Villain. I really like non-human though, as the especially obviously not-human ones are very unlikely to get picked for best male or female, while cutey-pies and villains are more likely to end up in the male or female (or non-human if we keep the category) nominations--especially if we keep both a "Best" and a "Best Supporting" category.

I'm also not a big fan of the Supporting Characters categories. I do understand why they are there, and I think they are not completely without merit, but maybe if we keep the other extra character categories (non-human/adorable/antagonist), those two could go.

Winter 2017 was a bit of a strange season. I can't really call it a strong season over all as there just really weren't that many good shows. A bunch of the shows I watched this season were pretty much just watched because they weren't really offensive. A pretty large percentage of the shows that were good, however, were not just good but great and are likely to stay with me for a very long time.

To get the negative out of the way first, Fuuka certainly wasn't the worst show of the season but it was the worst show I actually made it through more than an episode or two of (One Room, I'm looking at you). The way it fumbled around with terrible pacing and characterization and built it's entire existence on cliche and coincidence just about propelled it into the "so bad it's good" category. Gabriel Dropout ended up as biggest disappointment largely because of how little it did with a great collection of characters and an interesting concept. It just wasted so much potential by defaulting into a bad, directionless version of Umaru for most of it's run time.

For the good, Dragon Maid, Monster Girls and Scums Wish stole the season completely. I wasn't expecting that given the presence of Rakugo S2 but I found Rakugo S2 to not live up to my expectations given it's legendary first season. Too much time in S2 was spent on characters and story elements I didn't care about and a partially fumbled epilogue episode after the extremely strong penultimate episode didn't help. Dragon Maid, Monster Girls and Scums Wish were just extremely good from start to finish with barely a bad episode between the three of them. Monster Girls surprised me the most this season because given the premise I was worried it would be another monster girl harem show but (to anyone who actually watched it) it clearly wasn't and actually ended up pretty deftly avoiding that classification at all. Dragon Maid stumbled a little with moments of poor choices, underserved side characters and not pushing things as far are they should have in others but was able to hit on emotional angles that comedy shows often struggle with.

Out of it all, Scums Wish ended up sliding pretty easily into my best of season. It was complicated, messy and over dramatic. It was basically a soap opera in anime form, but it was so well put together and so good looking that you had to watch it every week. In fact, out of all of the shows this season, Scums Wish was probably the only one I was fiending for the new episode of every single week. I needed to see what happened next even though I sometimes hated myself for liking it as much as I did. Every character was treated in a way that made them interesting and even likable. Akane (aka slut-sensei to many) was a shoe-in for Antagonist of the Season if the category had not been removed. The show even ended in a messy and complicated but still somehow happy way that perfectly encapsulated the rest of the season.
