Atsumi Tanezaki's seiyuu career exploded in the past couple of years and I'm all in for it to continue doing so.

Really happy to see Anzai Chika and Hina Suguta there, absolutely nailed their roles as Chisato and Marin.

My congrats to the winners! A little sad that Junya Enoki hasn't received any awards though by himself.

It's no surprise to see Natsuki Hanae-san win the Influencer award but I didn't expect Eguchi Takuya-san to win the MVS award, feels like I've been missing a lot of his roles recently.
