I don't agree with Madoka being the best TV series but it doesn't matter to me.

That's all fine and dandy but it seems like individuals whose opinion carry more weight disagree with you whole-heartedly.

I must say there are no surprises. I haven't seen Kokurikozaka Kara yet (and probably never will) but the rest seems legit.

Indeed, seems like each year there were two winners.

Jizzy as you would call yourself because youre a dick The most butthurt award goes to you And clearly you havent watched that many shows thats why you cant determine if a show is unique or not Or maybe you're just a child who likes common stuffs where hero saves the day and guys gets all the girls. Sad taste you have there kid you came up to me in the first place making you look more like a kid who got slapped without me even knowing it and start crying about it to me

Madoka huh, as expected. But IMO AnoHana was better.

i've only watched a couple of madoka episodes thus far, and i can definitely see why it won a lot of awards - some very ground-breaking and innovative stuff going on with the animation - really just a beautifully done show (so far)!

I don't agree with Tiger & Bunny being the best TV series but Madoka was obvious. I wonder why did they award Tiger & Bunny instead of Steins;Gate...

Well, you can't really give a "best" award there, so yes, it's much better to just award the more popular ones...:)

So much Steins;Gate butt clenching, why? And WHY is Madoka still getting this much attention? Annoying as hell.

Tiger and Bunny is pretty much the most overrated anime in the past 10 years.

Unicorn did deserve the best OVA award though.

It should've been Steins;Gate and Tiger & Bunny.
But it's not a surprise I guess, all the "wow, me as mahou shoujo fan has never seen an anime with a plot, this anime is so groundbraking" fanboys are prove of that.

I may not agree with these, but then again, why would Japan care about an American's opinion?

I do have to agree with Shinbo getting "best director," cos if he DIDN'T get it, I'd personally go to Japan and punch the voters in their mouths.

Good to see Madoka Magica winning the award again for best TV series. January - April 2011 was one of the best season of anime for me in the past 20 or so years of watching anime.

This so much. I'm probably not the target demographic, but I couldn't stand watching it anymore after 3 episodes so I dropped it. It seems like its the fujoshi who like it best.
