The winners of the 14th Animation Kobe Awards (Wikipedia) are as follows:

Individual Award: Kato Kunio ("La Maison en Petits Cubes")
Special Award: Yukimuro Shun-ichi (script of "Sazae-san")

Feature Film Award: WALL-E
TV Feature Award: Higashi no Eden
Network Media Award: The Melancholy of Haruhi-chan Suzumiya & Nyoro-n Churuya-san
Theme Song Award: Don't say “lazy” ("K-ON!")

The chief judge Matsushita Shun-ya said the judges got into an imbroglio over whether they should choose the foreign anime Wall-E since the objective of Animation Kobe is to promote of the anime industry in Japan. They finally reached the agreement because Wall-E's harmony between the animation and the digital technique was noteworthy.

FFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-


The proof that our world is going down...



Pff, K-on ending is great.
Again some lover like the song just because it's in a moe-blob show and some hater hate the song for the same reason.

As for the others, i have no opinion on, cuz i havent seen them, but i really want to see Higurashi no Eden

Higurashi no Eden? O_o What a horrible crossover!

Er, I love K-On but...seriously. The ending song is obsessed over a little too much.

Glad about Higashi no Eden getting recognition. It deserves it.

Urgh sorry typo. Didnt even see that

Try to name some other OPs and EDs you remember from the last year. I certainly can't remember a whole lot and none of them were as catchy. Say what you will about K-On! the show; the ED was fantastic.


Well, considering I mostly skip ED songs, so ill go with OPs...Just to name a few :
Sisters of Wellber II, Spice & Wolf , Mnemosyne, xxxHolic Kei(which works perfectly in terms of catchiness),, D.M.C, Moryou No Hako, Tytania, Kurozuka

and many many others...


So yes, there were a lot of other songs MORE memorable than the fail which won.

Ecstatci for Higashi no Eden.
It SO deserved that award. ^^

And I like Don't Say "Lazy" so I don't mind it winning an award.

The Ko-N ED sounds alright, but it feels so..it's like I hear it all the time. Is there something else as catchy out there out of curiousity?

Can Gundam 00 music work?

Just because it placed #2 on Oricon and sold like 100k copies or something, I suppose.

I'd rather see something like SHIN AI up there, tbh. That was an awesome OP. Although the show sucked.

Some people here need to get some tastes here. Saying that K-On ED is mediocre, LMAO. One of the best endings this year, oh wait, it is the best.
Which is pretty sad, imo, as some other people have said also. Nothing wrong with the music itself, but Engrish just isn't my style. I was actually quite interested after the first or second time of hearing it, then this kept on popping up:
