Your Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2017 winner is…
This years Crunchyroll anime awards showcased some of the best anime had to offer in 2017, but did the winners deserve to win? I’m going to talk about who won and my thoughts on the night! There are spoilers ahead so if you don’t want to know who won yet then I would stop reading here!
Best opening – Peace Sign, My Hero Academia season 2, Bones.
This opening may not have been the best out of the group but it ended up being the most popular. I personally love this song and was so happy it won. This song has been on my gym playlist for a while now and its a great way to get all worked up for a great work out, or to watch a great anime. Watch it here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/my-hero-academia
Best Ending – Ishukan Communication, Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Kyoto Animation.
Ah yes the dragon ladies. This was the only ending in the line up that I knew and the only ending that is still on repeat in my head. And how can you not love the dragon ladies? Watch it here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/miss-kobayashis-dragon-maid
Best Film – Your Name, Comix Wave Films
This category annoyed me. I was really upset that Your Name won, however I wasn’t surprised. I personally think that Silent Voice should have won this. Your Name has won countless of awards over the past 2 years, making it one of the most successful anime movies of all time, and this is the reason I wanted Silent Voice to win. Silent Voice is on the same par as Your Name and doesn’t have half of the love and recognition that it should have. I would recommend either to any anime fan that s looking for a great anime movie night in!
Best Score – Made in Abyss, Kinema Citrus
You might have heard a lot about this anime and if not where have you been? This anime is stunning, and its only right that its music got awarded. I could happily listen to Made in Abyss’ soundtrack for days. Especially if you are looking to relax after a hard day. Watch it here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B073S2MKR2
Best Animation – My Hero Academia season 2, Bones.
Yes even against A Silent Voice, My Hero Academia smashed its way to best animation, but after watching fights between Uraraka and Bakugo, Todoroki and Midoryia and any scene with All Might in it, it’s not hard to see why.
Best CGI – Land of the Lustorious, Orange.
Beautiful anime with beautiful CGI. Another favourite to win and again not hard to see why it did, nothing else really compared to the stunning movement and effects within this anime. Watch it here: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0767NS4PN
Best Comdey – Miss Kobayashi’s Dragon Maid, Kyoto Animation
I know Kanna it’s shocking! Konasuba was so close to winning it! But you and the other dragon ladies where funnier according to the anime viewers of Crunchyroll! Congrats girls!
Best Slice of Life – Girls Last Tour, White Fox
This is a great anime, I enjoyed every minute of it and i agree that this was the winner. Now if only I didn’t need amazon to watch it again…. Watch it here: https://www.amazon.com/Starry-Sky-War/dp/B0767MQKZD
Best Continuing series – March comes in like a lion season 2, Shaft.
This shocked me, that against Dragon Ball Super and Naruto, that this won. I haven’t watched this yet but I’m going to know! I’ve heard good things about this anime and now I want to find out how good it actually is. Watch it here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/march-comes-in-like-a-lion
Best Boy – Shoto Todoroki, My Hero Academia, Bones.
AH LOOK AT HIS FACE HES OVERWHELMED WITH EMOTIONS! SHOTO-KUN CONGRATS YOU WHERE ALWAYS MY BEST BOY BUT NOW YOUR EVERYONES AND I CAN’T STOP CRYING!
Best Girl – Ochako Uraraka, My Hero Academia, Bones.
It may have taken her 2 years. But she did it! Uraraka is Best Girl <3 And she can’t believe it! I’m sure the fight between her and Froppy was a well fought one!
Best Villian – Stain, My Hero Academia, Bones.
Is anyone else seeing a pattern with these winners? Hold on. Wait……. how many awards have My Hero won now?!
Best Hero – Izuku “Deku” Midoryia
Guys, just…. This face…. that smile…. you voted this…. good job… 2nd year in a row! Deku is too cute for me i can’t stare at this photo for too long i’ll get sick from all the sweetness.
Best Drama – The Ancient Magus’ Bride, Wit Studio
FINALLY! This anime is stunning and I’m shocked that it didn’t win more. I’m so glad that Magus bride got best drama, this is a beautiful anime and I cannot wait for it to see how it ends! Watch it here: http://www.crunchyroll.com/the-ancient-magus-bride
Best Action – My Hero Academia season 2, Bones.
Right All Might don’t even acted shocked, that’s award number 7. But I mean we all knew MHA would get this but still…. don’t act surprised.
Best Manga – My Lesbian Experience with loneliness, Seven Seas Entertainment
I voted for this one on the name alone, haven’t read it yet. If anyone can find me a link please comment it below!
And now the moment you have all been waiting for!
Your Anime of Year 2017 is….
Wait… it’s not My Hero?!?!?! Well as much as I love my hero I wouldn’t have given it to them either. Made in abyss is just a beautiful anime that deserved this.
So what do you guys think of the winners? My Hero picking up 7 awards and Made in Abyss. Or would you have picked something different? Let us know! Leave us comments below!
