I don't see the problem with frozen, apparently they got some pretty high profile people to dub it in japanese and everything translated over well.

Ping Pong deserved that. (But, eh, Japan seems to be not so over Frozen yet)

Frozen is like more popular in Japan than 99.9% of the anime released in the last decade.... it's like 2nd or 3rd biggest hit for Japan's Box Office period....

Frozen?

Also, best character design Madoka? Granted I liked the show just as much as everyone else, but the fucking character designs were far from grade A material. Seriously...every face was just an eye color and hair style swap, and the eyes look like they were drawn in 6 seconds.

Nice to see ping pong up there, but Frozen???

Mar 23, 2015 3:23 PM by ccdewa

Glad to see Ping Pong getting the recognition it truly deserves. I had not seen something that truly suprised me in every way like that show in quite a long time.

Awesome to see Ping Pong win that award.
