I´m glad Bungou did pretty well this year, too. Kimetsu deserves praise, indeed, but it´s quite exaggerated putting Nezuko´s seiyuu as the best. I mean, she has a cute voice and make her funny mumbles, but actually had very few lines for real. I know Morohoshi won last year, but I´d rather see her in this place. Not really because of Kyouka, I think she was great as Emma. And for some reason, I don´t like Promare... Such a weird name. I thought it was a game, not an anime.

Aot is still my best but the others anime deserved it too so it's fine. BTW WHAT ANIME IS PROMARE? DON'T TELL ME IT'S PROMISE NEVERLAND?! 😌 didn't know it's has a short name

Very happy for all the well diserved rewards for Sarazanmai!

tenki no ko lost ? Why ? I know promare fun and exciting but tenki no ko more popular

Garbage awards doesn’t mean anything AOT is AOTY and no one can change that because it’s a fu**ing fact

Oct 29, 6:50 AM by H-X-H

A mountain of mediocre trash!!! Im not surprised!!

Shingeki no Kyojin Season 3 was the best among those in my book!






Oct 29, 3:48 AM by Yuri-Crusader

Yay! I love it when people shit on awards.

I'm glad to see Kimetsu no Yaiba getting some of the awards but...
WHERE TF IS THE PROMISED NEVERLAND AND KAGUYA SAMA IN THE CATEGORIES!? Is it because the Japanese doesn't really care for them? Also, what's up with Japan's obession with idol boys? And To Aru 3!? Why!?

Anyways, I'm glad both Tanjiro and Nezuko got number 1. I mean, sure I completely agree that Nezuko didn't do that much in series (for now that is), but I think she deserves. I'm also glad that Kyoka and CC also got in the best girls list.

But I'm not happy that Lulu and CC were beaten by Kirito and Asuna.

Also Gurenge and Setsuna no Ai were in the top spots which was quite nice considering that they're 2 of my favorite OP's this year.

Judging by this, I have a feeling that next year's CAA will be dubbed the Kimetsu no Yaiba Awards. All I can say now is, MAL forums, prepare for the worst.

Oct 29, 2:08 AM by TheKawaiiToon

This is just like the Crunchyroll awards. The only thing good about promare was the action and animation, the characters were extremely shallow and cliche and had almost nothing good or new in the plot. The fact Nezuko was one of the top characters surprises me too because she was barely even relevant. Hardly any winter anime, which were arguably the best of the entire 2019 won anything, and shows from late 2018 such as Bunny Girl didn't either. These awards were clearly biased due to recent releases and dont clearly take into account how good the character design, plot, or anything else were.

Can't say I agree with everything around here

How to Write a Good Character 101: Grunt.

Ironically, Haru from My Roommate is a Cat had more personality.

At least Banana Fish and Ash made it on the list.

Oct 28, 2:24 PM by -Mae-

Im glad Sarazanmai and Banana Fish got so much love but wheres Dororo? that shit was lit yet I dont see it anywhere. Disgrace

Oct 28, 2:05 PM by alaneCN

I expected Bungou Stray Dogs to be on the list, this anime with its characters, seiyuus and songs never miss NewType anime award.
KNY deserved it too of course!
I think it's time for me to wath Banana Fish!
It's kinda funny that people complain when their favourite anime/ character isn't awarded. This is a japanese poll! anime are made basically for japaneses!
AOT S3...8th place?? weird but accepted.

Being quiet is not the same as being submissive. Weird to have to explain it in the context of Nezuko who kicked off demon's head clean off...

Nezuko being able to kick and jump doesn't make her less submissive, though. I don't hate her character or anything but I'm also agree about the lack of personality and poor character development she had during this season. I mean, what we got about her?
1. She loves her family (what? didn't see that coming)
2. She was brainwashed by Urokodaki Sakonji
Besides, the fact she spent like 80% of the season locked in that box or sleeping made her look more like a cute pet or a pokemon rather than a person (except even some pokemon in the anime had more character development)
That's true. Her turning into a demon seems to have wipe out most of her personality. I agree that she wasn't much of a character, but considering what cookie cutter characters you get in most shows nowadays, I'm not surprised people liked her. Nothing is better than crap.

I hear "overrated" in my speakers, must be an accident of course, it's not like one show literally stole all first place because of its hype nonono it wouldn't happen.

Weird that anime movie Makoto Shinkai's Tenki no Ko didn't have more recognized after gaining successful in theater, local & outside Japan.

Supposedly in Best Soundtrack (RADWIMPS), Best Director (Makoto Shinkai) & Best Screenplay have included.

Looking at the most common female character types in anime nowadays, one that keeps her mouth shut is actually pretty great. It works for real life as well...
