AniBloggers Choice Anime Awards
Seeing as its the end of the year and Award season is looming, I had the idea to make an article stating my favourite anime picks of the year. But the only problem with this is that I have not seen all the anime produced this year and at this point if you follow me on twitter it should be pretty obvious what my picks would be. So to make things interesting I decided to put it in….the Ani-Bloggers hands, dont worry you guys will have a say as well.
The reason I chose Ani Bloggers is because by having them pick their favourite shows and talking about them on their blogs, a whole lot more anime fans will get a chance to know about it. I do have to say this can only work with their participation and without that this entire thing will fall flat on its face, so Ani Bloggers please participate. Allright without further ado here is how this thing is going to work.
This is how its going to work
- There will be four categories, 1 for each season. Bloggers will pick their top 3 anime from each season stating which was their favourite. The number 1 show will get 3 points, the 2nd 2 points and the 3rd 1 point.
- Bloggers must then pick 1 show from their list that they consider their anime of the year, that will get an extra 2 points. e.g If Metanorn (good blog read it) pick Fate/Zero as their number 1 show for autumn (giving it 3 points) and also as their anime of the year (giving it an extra 2 points) the total score for Fate/Zero from Metanorn will be 5.
WINTER 2011 (January -March)
SPRING 2011 (April – June)
SUMMER 2011( July – September)
AUTUMN 2011 (October – December)
BONUS Category : LICENSOR AWARDS
I thought we should give the anime licensors some love as well so I figured a licensors award was in order. The same rules apply except each blogger only picks one Licensor and states their favourite DVD/BD release of the year. In case you forgot here is a brief list of some of the bigger titles they have released this year.
FUNimation: Summer Wars, Evangelion 2.22
Viz: Naruto Shippuden, Bleach, Vampire Knight
Bandai: K-on!, Gundam Unicorn
Section 23/ Sentai Filmworks: Angel Beats!, High School of the Dead

Thats about it, hope you guys participate and enjoy it. You can contact me on Twitter if you have any questions.
