The winners of the Tokyo Anime Award have been announced for 2011.

Best TV Anime
K-ON!!
Yojouhan Shinwa Taikei

Best Domestic Film
Karigurashi no Arrietty

K-ON!!, Amagami SS, Soredemo Machi wa Mawatteiru, Denpa Onna to Seishun Otoko, and Yumekui Merry had once been listed in TBS's exhibition entries at TAF 2011, but all of them removed on February 3rd. Amagami, SoreMachi, Denpa Onna are related to the Comic 10 Publishers' Society, who boycott TAF. The final decision whether to exhibit manga or anime is left to the authors.

Ishiguro Masakazu, the manga author of SoreMachi, revealed that he had made a strong protest against the entry list and TBS immediately erased the name and the illustration of SoreMachi next day. Ishiguro said he opposed to Tokyo's Anime & Manga Regulation Ordinance and resented the mistake of TBS.

Grats to all.

As for K-on, I point out that it has changed the way the anime industry operates. Now opening, ending and insert songs aren't just written for the heck of it. They're written to impress and sell CDs. And the anime brought the music industry together. No I'm not a great fan of K-On and moe, but I do believe that its influence is quite undeniable

That being said, anyone laughing that the Best Music didn't go to K-On?

Toy Story 3 is a Foreign Film....in Japan.

Also, Toy Story 3 is an EXCELLENT film...99% rating in RottenTomatoes

and, it was actually nominated as BEST PICTURE in the Academy Awards, yes even though it's animated.

Yeah, let's reward this shitty moe-anime a second time, because giving this award to K-ON last year obviously wasn't enough.
If you really want to reward an anime two times (in a row) at least choose a GOOD one!

HA! And people talk shit about America having no taste, looks like Japan isn't any different.

K-ON won best tv series cause it's popular (There was so much better shows that aired in 2010, though it was still a dry year).

That aside, I'm looking forward to Karigurashi no Arrietty.

You know the sad part is that a lot of haters never even saw K-ON!!

They obviously hated it for their idiotic reasons and rant whenever it's mentioned.


To be Honest....K-ON!! was NOT the best anime of 2010, BUT....

It wasn't bad either, in fact it was pretty good, (better than the first season), besides who cares that it won.

This doesn't really do anything for it, other than annoy the haters to the point of wanting to shoot themselves (Which they probably should do).

>Hating k-on
>Kuragehime sig
Yup, otakus are indeed predictable.

I don't know if BEST TV ANIME, but last year certainly wasn't brilliant, so I guess it's ok. Though what about Katanagatari? I think that would've been a better choice (It was aired on TV right? I don't really know).
Anyway, I'm actually more interested in knowing how TAF turns out since, you know, more than half of the things that were going to be shown there, refused the chance.

I'm pretty sure Katanagatari were OVAs, they were released once per month.

I was just thinking about Durarara!!, but then I remembered how stupid and bad the ending was.

I like how the K-ON haters are completely ignoring the fact that it shared the top prize with Yojohan, which they would probably like if they watched it.

Or maybe they are hating on K-ON because they feel that it devalues Yojouhan's win.

Either way, 2010 was a pretty poor year, so I can't complain about K-ON winning if I don't know what should have taken in its place. Actually, I do, but an award for a flop like Saraiya Goyou was never going to happen, especially with Yojouhan taking the other prize. It would have looked a bit biased if two noitaminA anime won. Kuragehime didn't win anything for the same reason.

wooow, never knew there were that much K-ON! haters. But I have to say I have never watched K-ON! but I do think that there was better anime better than K-ON! in 2010, like major S6, Densetsu no Yuusha no Densetsu etc.

I like how everyone is 'MISSING' the point of discussion. Read the thing more

TAF is organised by 'ISHIHARA BITCH'. The reason that K-On is on the list of best TV animation nominee is due to the fact that it is 'ONLY POPULAR ANIMATION' that seems to be ready for exhibition in TAF currently. If it isn't, I wonder if award can work.

You guys do know about all those boycott and Animation Contents Expo (to oppose this), right? To sum up, this award means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING BUT SHIT BY ISHIHARA.

So how does one of the best Anime's from recent years (The Tatami Galaxy) end up next to one of the all round worst anime's ever created (K-ON) in the best section? What the frick are they smoking??!!

They even gave a voice acting award to someone who he a shit voice actor and shit at singing. What awful awards. Though I do find it odd that they could recognize Tatami along beside that somehow.

Too bad for you, I watched both seasons of the K-ON! series, and I still say it's shit. It wasn't the worst anime ever, but to be called the best of 2010 is a joke.

Ok...then you're a HUGE fucking moron!!!

If you saw the first season and thought it was SHIT, then why the hell would you watch 26 episodes of season 2???

Oh, that's right I forgot that every hater is actually a masochist who like to punish themselves by watching shit anime so they can later complain in the forums.

Good job...
