Sifting through the entirety of anime from 2018 isn’t the only process that the nominees had to go through before being selected. The nominees for Anime Awards this year weren’t randomly picked. They were selected through a rigorous process that involved a number of judges’ votes and a lot of internal and external decision making. Learn all about our process here!
The Anime Awards are just a little more than a day away - that is, the day that we reveal the nominees for this years' Anime Awards and open voting to fans!! We had an incredible panel of 20+ judges sift through the 217+ anime eligible for the coveted title of "Anime of the Year", and over the course of six weeks and two rounds of voting, the judges narrowed it down to just six nominees that we're very excited to reveal to all of you...on Friday at 12:01am Pacific Time.
