"Do you ever have a problem where you just don't know how to reply to an argument-- not because you don't know the answer, but you just don't where to begin? Like, the foundation of knowledge you'd need to impart to this person before you could even begin to drag them out of their sinkhole of ignorance would cost thousands of dollars, if it were coming from a University?" -MAL in a nutshell.

Ping Pong The Animation (Television)
Deserved. Well deserved.
Why is Frozen winning a Japanese award...?
EDIT: I'm pretty sure if they included (all) international possibilities they could surely come up with something better. I feel like it's just because Frozen is so popular and American/English. Makes Ping Pong look less impressive...

There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

Best Music: Hiroyuki Sawano (Shingeki no Kyojin)
He didn't win for SnK, just to note. We added a role for each winner to give users a bit of recognition. SnK is just much, much more popular than Gundam UC. I will agree with you though, UC's OST is great. I was listening to a bunch of tracks for up to 2 months after I finished the series.

I can't help but find the idea of Nisekoi being exceptional in any way kinda laughable.
Same here. Perhaps I should add a note to the post.

Anime means Animation in Japan. I don't believe the Tokyo Anime Awards are solely for domestic animation, but also international.
Very happy to see Ping Pong up there. Frozen and Stand By Me Doraemon should switch places, not that I've watched the latter yet. Uchiyama Kouki getting some recognition, nice. Raku was a role that was different from most of his previous roles which I've seen, and he did pretty well with the character imo. And he was also a really fitting choice for Smile in Ping Pong.
Not surprised to see Frozen there at all, here in Norway, tourism from Japan has exploded ever since Frozen, there was almost never tourists from Japan here in Northern Norway, now they're shuttling in planes chock full of Japanese people daily.
I find it peculiar that they would come in the dead of winter though, but I guess that's how they get the authentic "Frozen" experience :P
Also, I don't remember any Japanese movies from 2015, at least not any worthy of note, and Frozen did win in the movie category, so what other movies than Frozen could/ would win?
