Crunchyroll has revealed their slate of winners for the fifth annual Anime Awards! One of the best parts of being an anime fan is looking back on an entire year of releases and figuring out which new series come out on top. While the ComicBook.com staff is able to do this amongst ourselves with the Golden Issues, the best part is getting to see what the rest of the fandom enjoyed over the year. For the fifth year in a row, Crunchyroll compiled votes over across multiple weeks from thousands of fans to find out which of the 2020 anime truly stood out.
With the premiere of the 2021 Anime Awards, Crunchyroll has revealed the full slate of winners for the year which include notable standouts such as Jujutsu Kaisen, Keep Your Hands Off Eizouken!, Re:Zero - Starting Life in Another World Season 2, Kaguya-sama: Love is War Season 2 and much more.
