Hell yeah Bakemonogatari ED!
Supercell deserved it for that ending. Tied so well with the show.

Special award to K-On, nice.

Isn't Gintama BEST a compilation of the opening and ending tracks?

If so, then what the hell is it doing up there with other winners. Compilation albums don't deserve to win any prizes.

Supercell only needed a good vocalist and a break into the industry to start winning awards :p

Congrats to Supercell. The Bakemonogatari ED was one of the better songs of 2009, especially the full version of it.
