CRUNCHYROLL: The Anime Awards Are Here And So Are The Nominees

CRUNCHYROLL: The Anime Awards Are Here And So Are The Nominees

With a new year comes multiple awards and times to review the content that has been released. Thankfully, it's time for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards! Hit the jump to check out the nominees!

With the year 2020 taking its final bow, it's time to take a look at some of the entertainment industry's best over the past 12 months. From films to video games, there was a lot of content to occupy the world this past year, and no industry thrived more than anime. 

Since animators and creators were forced to work from home, productions never completely stopped. They were being delayed from time to time, however. Because of the work being done on so many projects, multiple new shows premiered towards the year's latter half. Every new show that was released featured some fantastic animation and voice work and adapted some of the most unique concepts to have been seen in a very long time.

With the year over, Crunchyroll is unveiling the opportunity to vote for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2020! With shows like Jujutsu Kaisen, The God of High School, Tonikawa, and more listed as nominees, this could be the most exciting awards year yet! There are many categories to choose from, such as best boy, best couple, and best opening.

A new video has also been released that has announced the reveal and can be seen below. Make sure to cast your vote, and don't forget to mention some of your favorites in the comments below!
