Last night, Crunchyroll, the world’s most popular anime brand, announced the winners of their annual “Crunchyroll Anime Awards” in a virtual ceremony that was broadcast on their network. As noted in the nominations rundown, the Anime Awards are a celebration of the best and brightest in Japanese animation from 2020. The ceremony was hosted by Crunchyroll’s own Tim Lyu and I’ve left the nominated in the list of the winners so you can see who beat out the rest for the honor. Let’s review.
Anime of the Year:
Great Pretender WINNER – JUJUTSU KAISEN
Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!
Earlier this evening, the 2020 Crunchyroll Anime Awards were handed out to the best and brightest in Anime entertainment and as many of you might recall, we lined out the run of nominations for this award just about a month ago. To keep this easier for you, I’ve left the full list of nominees and have highlighted the winner so you can see what was beat out. Let’s scroll through the list now shall we?
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.

Readers of the posts on this website that fall into the Pop Culture side of the fence have enjoyed our coverage of stuff like the NY Comic Con, Big Apple Comic Con and only over the last year or so the Liberty City Anime Con. Now while I am close to a lifelong reader of the traditional comics, I never really found myself digging into the Anime or Manga side of the fence. In an effort to support more of the geek stuff for my fellow mavens I wanted to share the recently announced winners for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards. Let’s take a look.

So it wasn’t too long ago that I shared the nominees for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards with the readership and I am back already with the winners of these awards. Unless I am mistaken, this is the first go round for such an award and for those who don’t know much about Crunchyroll let me explain that they are a leading facilitator in the streaming of Anime content. I guess the layman might view them as the Netflix of Anime only which is pretty cool. In the interest of time, I’ve repeated the full list of nominees with the winners highlighted in the list. According to what I’ve read, almost 2 million votes were submitted and that is really awesome. Let’s get to the winners.
Anime of the Year: WINNER – Yuri on Ice
Mob Psycho 100
My Hero Academia
Kabaneri of the Iron Fortress
Re:Zero − Starting Life in Another World
