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.".

In every age, in every place, the deeds of men remain the same.

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.

Fantastic news! Yojouhan definitely deserved this award seeing that it was one of the best Anime this year. It's nice to hear it's that appreciated.

Well, since they only award animation here and not story etc, it seems deserved to me.

Still, don't really care about Yojouhan. Seeing Bokurano manga on the list is more important.

A mature, quirky sci-fi series animated by Madhouse with great VAs?

Of course it would win. :)

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.

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.

Bokurano didn't win Grand Prize :/ It deserves more than an excellence award

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?

Oh, I was just questioning why you seemed so raging. Yes, I do agree with you.

And I was simply saying that even though it wasn't on the recommendation, Durarara!! was better than The Tatami Galaxy. But only by a little bit.
