Glad to see Erased and Bnha up there. I thought OPM would be a little higher up though? Hm.
Otherwise, I think it's astonishing to see Ten Count up there.
Or any yaoi for a matter of fact.
But given that I have seen plenty of merch for it, it makes me wonder how popular it is.

3 of the 5 LNs are the bad kind. Global hits my ass, LN fans need to nominate something different next time.

these awards do not have credibility, also what does "experts" mean. does that mean they're expert critics or experts at predicting what anime viewers will eat up and what they won't go near?

I'm still resisting not to read Golden Kamuy in hopes of an anime adaptation.

Not this shit again, i'm getting sick and tired of Oscar Award-tier list.
Yeah i already get it, they care about Popularity not Quality.

Jojo and Konosuba being part of the list is fine.

Golden Kamui got a good rank, I really want to start it... too bad I chose to put my manga money mostly on finished titles to avoid disappointments.
Funny to see that something featuring Ainu so heavily is well regarded in Japan.

To the ones doubting about Joker game: if by global hit potential, they mean something susceptible to succeed globally and outside of the restrictive animation clientele, it certainly is.
The biggest problems of this series were the failed attempts at building a red line between the various short stories of the anthology it adapted and at cramming each of them in 20minutes.

About Re:zero, despite how well made it looks (and how much I despise it), I fail to see how it could gather attention of the masses with all its typical "otaku-stream" elements, even more on an international level.


Is this Sugoi Award linked to the yearly professional selections called "Kono XXXXX wa sugoi"?



edit @Jagd84 Thanks. ^^

Aww, I wish Diamond is Unbreakable was in top 3. Grats to ReZero though!

Also really happy to see Golden Kamuy rank so high on the list. I can't wait for an anime adaptation someday (it's going to happen)

Because those "otaku-stream" elements are relatively minor and more blown up out of proportion due stereotypes of LN medium in general. Re:Zero also one most popular shows in Asia, being the number one most watched and talked about show in China and had a strong following in Korea during it's airtime. That's not including the West were is among the top. I mean one of appeals to the general audience is that isn't fill with the regular LN cheese, (battle harem, school setting, OP protagonist, game mechanics etc). If one were looking for all that were shows airing that year better aligned those tastes. Whether you like the series or not you don't get kind of notoriety Re:Zero has by adhering to the typical medium standards.

Surprised about at Joker Game being on there though. But it did sell pretty well and in fairness spy fiction is a rare genre in anime.

Lol, Japan no.
Ten Count being there is quite surprising, but I'm happy about that.
