Tatami Galaxy and Historie winning the grand prizes is a really good thing for all the experimental, mature and carefully-crafted works created in Japan these past few years and I see it as a kind of accomplishment for the style.
What's more, "It's for the first time that a TV series wins the grand prize of the award.".
Congrats for the prize winners. Now, where are my Mai Mai Shinko subs? French speakers sure are lucky.
Colorful is excused as it won't be out on DVD yet, while I want want to see Wakaranai Buta (In a Pig's Eye) pretty badly now. There's a bit more info about here, if you are interested. I'm guessing that the excellence award means that Wakaranai Buta can be added to the DB now even though it's a "doujin" movie, so I will try to do that.
The JMAA don't always get it right, but most of the time they do as this illustrates. It's great to see the best anime since 2007 getting some love since I get the feeling it probably didn't in terms of DVD/B-R sales.
Yojouhan, along with Durarara, was a breath of fresh air amidst all the moe and fan-service-ridden crap that dominated the spring lineup. Though, I consider Durarara superior to Yojouhan in terms of narrative and execution, but it makes me glad seeing more shows like these getting recognition and appreciation.
And yay for Historie, the best ongoing manga that everyone should read.
darknagas said: Yay! Tatami Galaxy is OWNING!! F*CK YOU Angel Beats, Suzumiya Haruhi, and Arakawa Under the Bridge. Those 3 are just bullsh*ts compare to Tatami Galaxy.
Durarara!! is better.
I'm not sure if you meant what you said was really "ok"(What's the reason of the question mark on your "Uh..ok?")
Assuming you do agree with me that Tatami is better than the 3 bullsh*ts,
and those bullsh*ts belong to judge's recommendation. But Durara isn't there on the judge's recommendation. Therefore, Durara isn't better than three bullsh*ts and it is wrong to say Durarara!! is better.... at least in the judge's point of view. Ok? Oh, I used ok and question mark correctly isn't it? Again?
