One of the oldest anime magazines in Japan, being devoted to animation and comics aimed at a general public and not for professionals, with the first issue being released in May 1978. The Anime Grand Prix started in 1979, with the first prize being announced at the issue of 1980 January. The results for most of the awards are made public in either May or June issues.

The choices are made by popular voting, using ballot postcards from the official magazine volumes (not by online voting), so it's the most popular anime for the magazine's reader base at the time.

This list will have all winners of the "Anime of the Year Award", plus the runner-ups that got less than a 50 votes difference to the winner, and the winners of the "Best One of All Time", that ran from 1980 {2nd Half} up to 1999 (there is no info for the quantity of votes). This will be updated every new award publication.
