If you’ve been following my blog for this long, you should know that I love award shows for anime. In particular, I love the Crunchyroll Anime Awards. As usual, we’ll give our votes and the breakdown of each category. Then we give detailed reasons why before the show aires. Here is how we voted for 2021.
Prepare your predictions! Global anime brand Crunchyroll is announcing today the return of the Anime Awards, the international celebration of the best and brightest in animation.
