I've yet still to watch Kimi no Na wa but I'm not surprised to see it winning grand prize for the Animation Division.

Really happy to see Blue Giant win the grand prize for the Manga Division.

If I am not mistaken, this is Yamada Naoko-san's second award in the Japan Media Arts Festival Awards as she also won an award during the 18th Media Arts Festival for Tamako Love Story.
