There are plenty of ways to watch for all types of occasions
When this year's Anime Awards kick off on February 15, you'll want to be front and center for the festivities. Thankfully, that doesn't literally require being front and center at the show! There are plenty of ways to watch, whether you plan on viewing it solo, with a group of friends, or as part of a public live viewing party at one of a handful of locations around the world.
Before we get to those, let's go through some of the streaming options for viewing the Anime Awards live as they air. You'll be able to stream the show on:
The show begins in San Francisco at 5:00 pm PT, with our host, WWE Superstar and proud anime fan Xavier Woods (aka Austin Creed), leading the charge alongside Crunchyroll’s own Tim ‘T-Time’ Lyu! This year's Anime Awards will be bigger than ever before, with sneak peeks at upcoming productions, special guests, and much more to look forward to during the stream.

Crunchyroll will also be honoring George Wada—President of Attack on Titan's WIT STUDIO—as an Industry Icon.
Of course, the awards themselves are the heart of the event, and fans cast over 11 million votes for this year's categories. Tune in to see what the community voted for LIVE and cheer as we find out which of these amazing anime come out on top of each category!
