It was only a few short weeks ago when I shared the nominees for the 2018 Crunchyroll Anime Awards and as our longer-term readers know; PiercingMetal is a fan of the conventions that feature this stuff like Liberty City Anime Con, Anime NYC and of course New York Comic Con. Anime and the Manga comics titles are still areas that I am not 100% schooled on but I do enjoy both mediums through the hearts of my friends and am glad to share the winners of these awards with you all. Please peruse the list down below where I’ve highlighted the winners but also left those they were nominated against for those who are looking for solid Anime to investigate. My thoughts are if these were up for awards, then they have to be good. Let’s go.
