Anime Discourse - Crunchyroll's Anime Award

Now let me start off with the forewarning that you are basically about to read a rant by someone who is infinitely more biased towards Mob Psycho 100 than any other anime in these awards. Not to say that I don't like the anime listed, because for the most part I either do or I haven't watched them yet, but MP100 is a very important series to me for a multitude of reasons I may or may not go into one day.

I was originally going to write this when the nominee list was first released, but I'm lazy and now that the results are out I'm actually fueled to write this. I'm going to go briefly over the category winners (finishing out with the animation category because that's where I take real issue) and then talk about the general problems in the awards themselves. Also, I won't be talking about Anime of the Year since the winner isn't being revealed until the 28th because of... reasons? I don't know there's a party or something and it all seems like a load of BS, but it's whatever.

Having said all that, please remember that these are all my opinions and they may differ from yours because those are your opinions. We're all just here to rant and have a good time!

OH AND LET ME PUT THIS IN BIG BOLD LETTERS RIGHT HERE. IF YOU DON'T WANNA BE SPOILED FOR THINGS LIKE ERASED, DON'T READ THIS, SINCE THEY SPOILED THE ENDING IN THE NOMINEES THEMSELVES!!!
