PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it, the full rundown of nominees for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards. This year has me a bit clueless as I didn’t manage to watch any of the Anime stuff despite being really interested in doing so. I am finding that there is only so much TV and movies that I can watch. I also need an expert to guide me on it all so please do submit some recommendations to me. Though the list is long, I’d love for those expets in the format to let me know who they hope to win big in a few of the categories so please do chime in down below. It will be great to learn even more about it all. Now as their website discloses “The Anime Awards will culiminate in a live awards show on February 15, 2020 at 5pm PST. Be sure to mark your calendars to tune in and celebrate the winners!” – This will be done across their official website and their social networks so mark your calendars. Of course, I will also return with a rundown of the full winners list as well. Now back to the everything else. See you next time and once again do NOT forget to cast your vote. Part of me is thinking that is has to amount to more than the BS “Fan Vote” for the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame Nominees but I digress. Sound your voice now! nOW!! NOW!!!
