This past Friday, the Crunchyroll Anime Awards rolled out some of its best shows and creators to contend for the top spot. The event came to be thanks to 15 million votes from fans in 8 languages and across over 200 countries and territories. The celebration was hosted by Tim Lyu and Crunchyroll’s beloved princess, Crunchyroll-Hime, and together they and the fans unveiled some massive reveals for the platform.

Aside from the winners, five brand new anime were confirmed to be coming to the streaming service. These shows include “Tokyo Revengers,”  MAPPA’s “ZOMBIE LAND SAGA REVENGE,” “I’ve Been Killing Slimes for 300 Years,” “ JORAN THE PRINCESS OF SNOW AND BLOOD,” and “ODDTAXI.” The new anime hasn't announced a release date, but there are new key art and trailers that can be seen below.

The votes came from many countries, but the top three participants to the event were the United States, Brazil and Mexico.  The event's winners were welcome surprises. However, none were more surprising than the new series "JUJUTSU KAISEN," taking the top spot as anime of the year.

"So, where to?" This town should look familiar, but suddenly, it's not. The taxi driver Odokawa lives a very mundane life.

The only people he can call his friends are his doctor, Gouriki and his classmate from high school, Kakibana. All of his patrons seem to be slightly odd themselves. The college student who wants the world to notice him online, Kabasawa. A nurse with secrets named Shirakawa. A comedy duo that just can't catch a break named the Homosapiens.
