  • My friend thought this was an award that scored and rated according to the actual core of a show rather than its popularity, so we made a bet for most of the awards, and obviously, since I watched Kimetsu no Yaiba Awards 2020, I won almost everything, kinda feel bad for him.

  • MAPPA deserved this one ! they’ve been doing an amazing job with JJK

    eerika veerika vDay ago
  • I still don't know why JJK won best antagonist with a character that it isn't an antagonist. Like, what the hell? My vote was for En (i love that guy). Also, pretty disappointed that neither Dorohedoro or The Great Pretender did't won anything.

  • How is Black Clover op 13 not first literally came out and broke records instantly

    Erim DemirErim DemirDay ago
  • Let's be honest, Tensei Slime and So I'm a spider, so what? at least deserved some nominations Kumoko's VA did a damn good job portraying her situation and character, and that ED is just pure gold Tensei Slime had stunning animation and should have had a nomination with the Rimuru vs Hinata fight, well if the awards had a sound effects category Tensei Slime would have easily won with those spine chilling sound effects Also Kumoko will always be best girl

    YumiYumi2 days ago
  • So happy for Eizouken, Fruits Basket and Kaguya sama's awards... Though, I think best fight should have been for ENDEAVOR and NOUMU... and anime of the year, definitely to Great pretender. Great story, great character design and animation. Very balanced in every aspect and an ORIGINAL story, which is not an easy thing to do. Well, part of me already knew the mainstream anime of the year would win. (not saying JJK is bad... But it's not even complete)

  • How did black clover not even get NOMINATED for best OP The hell? Edit 1: How the hell was great pretender nominated for best anime of the year. The second season was awful and the first season kept killing people and bringing them back to life. Edit 2: Black Clover wasn't nominated. I'm just disappointed. Did they forget it. Have they watched op 10 or 13 or ending 10 or 12. How the hell the devil not nominated for best antagonist. He made the elf arc so much better. How are Noelle or mimosa nominated. I'll even take Charlotte. How is Asta or Yami not best boy. How is Black Clover not recognized as one of the best scores. I'd personally throw off Beastars score. How was one piece not nominated for anything. I must have something wrong, maybe only new anime, but then my hero can't be here. How was Borutos op not recognized as well, chuck great pretenders off. It was overrated. Is this for 2019? Did I miss that. Did AOT start 2020 or 2021 because it should have gotten some if it started 2021.
