Collapse Sci Fi and Fantasy into one category.


I am very much against this.
Scifi and fantasy can overlap to a degree, but they are still their own categories. I would not want to have a hard scifi (The Martian) in the same category as a sword and sorcery fantasy (Lord of the Rings). They explore very different concepts.

Oh, I agree that overall they are certainly different genres but within the context of anime and, even more specifically, the anime that we actually get in a specific season, it's often not a divide that really needs to exist if you're looking to thin the award categories.

Should we have a Best Sci-Fi category on it's own when there's maybe one show per season that qualifies as distinctly hard scifi? I personally don't feel we should, just as an example, basically give The Martian it's own special award just for showing up at the party. The same can be said for Fantasy where there are some seasons where there's maybe one or two shows that actually qualify as straight up Fantasy.

No Sports category? There are/were five Sports anime that aired this season: All Out!!, Minami Kamakura High School Girls Cycling Club, Tiger Mask W, Yowamushi Pedal: New Generation, and even Long Riders! (since the last two episodes aired last month).

Also same question for a Music category; in which a main aspect is that the characters are creating music through singing, instruments and other methods . I think these would could classify as "Music" anime: BanG Dream!, ClassicaLoid, Fuuka, Marginal#4, Idol Jihen, etc.

The only sci-fi this season is Gundam: IBO and maybe Chaos;Child to an extent. Other than that, there's ēlDLIVE and also Time Bokan 24, which I don't think anyone is even watching. That's potentially 4 shows that would fit the genre but there's no doubt IBO would get nearly all the votes. Merging Sci-Fi with Fantasy would basically put IBO alone against an entirely different genre so the results could be rather awkward. I think it would make more sense to drop Sci-Fi for this season since that category really won't be much of a contest.

I don't know about Sports and Music since I'm only watching Fuuka, but if it's not clear which show from either genre would dominate, I guess that genre could replace Sci-Fi.

As for the character-based categories, I really don't mind what happens to them.

Voltron aired this winter.
An American remake of an 80s anime that was only shown on Netflix counts, right? XD

Oh how I wish Keijo had a second cour.


I think the Supernatural category will be the most interestingly contested this season. I reckon Demi-chan and Miss Kobayashi's Dragon Maid are among the front runners. There are many popular shows that fit in that category.

I think non-human should be on a per-season basis. This season has a ton to chose from. The dragons from Ms. Kobayashi's Dragon Maid, the angels and devils in Gabriel DropOut (and the dog), you could probably argue if the demi-chans from Interviews with Monster Girls, there's been a couple in Little Witch Academia, Chomusuke (among others) in Konosuba, Kagari in Rewrite, Being X in Saga of Tanya the Evil, like half the casts of elDLIVE and Gintama, vampires in Akiba's Trip, probably something from Hand Shakers, Kemono Friends?.

That's just what I've picked from stuff I've watched could tell from the key visual so this season it should stay. I agree with a couple posters about "best supporting male/female" should either be combined or removed entirely.
