I'm not surprised that Miyano Mamoru has won the Best Singing. Since his songs are so good to listen to haha :)

As tsubasalover said, list is not on the site but the roles were part of the introduction before any of the winners are to go on stage and of course before they are presented with their respective awards. If you are still interested, just go with the rather long layered spoiler.

Additional note: I had the list follow the same order the awards (and introductions) were done.



Many thanks for providing this list!

"None"? or do they mean "not yet decided" or something? XD

"None" means none. They announced that there's no winner for best personality this year.

5-year window for New Actress? That's certainly very generous :D

Excellent. Very glad Maaya Uchida won Best New Actress. She was excellent in Sankarea! Interestingly enough, no winners for Best Personality though.

Best Lead Award
Actor: Kaji Yuuki


I nearly gave up after trying to do this when I suddenly got disconnected from the net. Where did my eight hours go...

LOL Kaji Yuuki winning for mostly his perverted characters roles...

Anyways, thanks for posting this all up despite how long it took! I'm glad you didn't give up ^^

Best New Actress
Maaya Uchida

How is she "new"? I remember her doing "Gokujo." and it was 2 years ago...

I'm kind of puzzled with the best new actress award. Hmm didn't Uchida Maaya do Gokujo like two years ago?


According to the Seiyuu Awards site, as long as they debuted within the last FIVE years, they are qualified for the newcomer award. I hope this clears the confusion for that.

Synergy Award
Mai Fuchigami (Girls und Panzer)

I am very happy for her.

I second this one. Though I had first encountered her in GaruPan and absolutely loved her Nishizumi Miho. It was the case where I couldn't think of anyone else for that role.

so glad seeing satou rina over there

Glad to even see a comment about the Best Actress. Last year's Satou Rina's Misaka Mikoto is still lovable as always.

By the way, for any of those who wanted to watch the Awards itself, you can watch at NicoNico as an alternative since for the life of me I can't figure out how to watch from the one link given early.

Is there any list... like, what role they got the award for? I can imagine that Yuki Kaji got the award for his role as Eren, but I don't know much about the others.

Whoa thanks. It's interesting to know what played during the introduction. Thanks again!

I like Kaji as much as the next guy, but I feel like someone else should've won the title this year. Even so, congratulations to him.

As the next guy? That would imply you don't like him...

Also, like I said, the guy has been sucking some old ass D's in the industry.


Unless you only live on MAL and a few other internet forums Kaji's pretty liked.

But anyways, congrats to all the seiyuus! Those awards were well deserved.

WOAAAA~!!
ありがとうございます~ ! For the info, @tsubasalover ! ( ^ ^ )

Happy for Mamoyan, MikiShin, Kaji-san, Hosoya, MitsushiKotono, and Kamiya. YEAAHHH !!!

I immediately made a note in my FB for my friend who really need this info... well, of course I credit it to the official site, you, and this forum also. hahahha
I too, modified some info on it :D

Again ... thank you so much :)

What a joy to see Mamoru here ♥

Best Lead Actor
Yuki Kaji


To be honest, as much as I like some of his roles, there's also very irritating ones out there. But I guess he did work pretty hard this year, right? (Well, all of them did)

Best Supporting Actor
Yoshimasa Hosoya


Yet another recent favorite~ I really like his voice tone and accent.

Best New Actor
Daiki Yamashita


Hime~ Hime~ Suki Suki Daisuki~ Hime~ Hime~

Best Singing
Mamoru Miyano


It's already abvious that his voice acting is not the only thing that's marvelous.

Best Personality
None


"None"? or do they mean "not yet decided" or something? XD

Most Votes
Hiroshi Kamiya


Well of course, me and many people agree that this one deserves the awesomeness.


Kei Tomiyama Memorial Award (Topical Award)
Shinichiro Miki


This guy has been one of my recent favorites this year. I was specially moved with his performance as Knov (HunterxHunter), he just portrayed his emotions so well. And I really love his voice tone~

Mar 1, 2014 4:16 AM by rika713

Surely KanaHana should get one for most prolific

Mar 1, 2014 3:07 AM by Xenografter

I'm late at realizing it because it's at the end (Lead Female), but you can be watched here: http://agqr.jp/ (right side, and you have to do a "survey" before viewing, though).

Mar 1, 2014 1:57 AM by tsubasalover

I doubt he was nominated but the best performance (for me) of 2013 comes from Sugita Tomokazu in Gintama Be Forever Yorozuya. l have never been more enthralled by a Japanese vocal performance in anime! Just masterful!!!

Mar 1, 2014 1:33 AM by who_dat_ninja

bleh, no KanaHana

happy with maaya uchida though

Kei Tomiyama Memorial Award (Topical Award)
Shin'ichiro Miki


This is the best news I've seen so far.

Saori Hayami in particular has just suddenly found herself all over the spectrum doing role after role in video games, anime and what not for characters I've really liked and she's been a big part of the reason I've liked them. There's something to be said for that smooth, silky and refined yet kind of biting inflection that makes her stand out. Like she went from barely on my radar to probably my favorite female seiyuu currently in a little over a year and that's something I can't really ignore even if I wanted to.


She actually has impressive versatility in my opinion. She did Suzuhara from Red Data Girl (a kind of shy/passive character who seems to lack confidence) and Yukinoshita from Oregairu (super confident with a kind of dominating and sometimes harsh personality), who are SO different.

has kana hanazawa won before?

anyway, the only one I could easily recognize was uchida maaya (rikka takanashi).


I think she hasn't won it so far, so hopefully she can get one next year.


She hasn't? Wow...I'm not sure what the time frame is for these awards but I guess Fall 2012 would have counted as last year when HanaKana was simultaneously in Zetsuen no Tempest (Fuwa Aika), Shinsekai Yori (Akizuki Maria), and Psycho-Pass (Tsunemori Akane). How could anyone have matched that in a year, let alone ONE season!? How did she not win for that year?

Feb 28, 2014 9:43 PM by Hahalollawl

Congrats to the winners! Well deserved. :P
