Anime Award: Demon Slayer big winner of the evening, but he is not the best anime of 2021

news culture Anime Award: Demon Slayer big winner of the evening, but he is not the best anime of 2021

Like the Oscars or the Game Awards, Crunchyroll also organized an awards ceremony dedicated to rewarding the animation series of 2021 across several categories. Voting took place for a week at the end of January and the results were finally released.

Summary

  • And the best anime of 2021 is…
  • Nice evening for Jujutsu Kaisen and big suitcase for Demon Slayer

And the best anime of 2021 is…

The results are closed for 2021! After a busy year in animation series, Crunchyroll has decided to take stock (a little late for some) of the best productions released last year. And as for the Oscars with its Palme d’Or or the Game Awards with its GOTY, the Anime Awards from Crunchyroll also have their flagship category: The best anime of the year. If the name is a little less high-sounding than that of its colleagues, it does not make the award less prestigious.

And the one who walks away with the winner’s trophy is none other than attack on titan season 4 part 1 ! If the details of the votes have not been revealed, we suspect that the fight with part 2 of season 1 of Jujutsu Kaisen must have been rough, especially when you see the number of awards won by the latter. A duel that will probably be repeated at the next edition of the Crunchyroll Awards: Jujutsu Kaisen 0 is expected in theaters in France on March 16, while part 2 of the season of The attack of the Titans is currently streaming on Wakanim and Crunchyroll.

And the best anime of 2021 is…

  • 86 Eighty Six
  • Attack on Titan Season 4 Part 1
  • Jujutsu Kaisen Season 1 Part 2
  • Oddtaxi
  • Ranking of Kings
  • Sonnyboy

Nice evening for Jujutsu Kaisen and big suitcase for Demon Slayer

If the team behind Jujutsu Kaisen may feel frustrated for not having won the ultimate reward, she may find solace in the number of trophies she walks away with. Best Female Character, Best Fight Scene, Best Action Anime and Best charac designate, Jujutsu Kaisen was elected four times during this ceremony. It remains as much as The attack of the Titans (four awards)… but less than Demon Slayer: The Infinity Train who collects the jackpot with five prizes!

Beyond that, we note a good performance for Oddtaxi but no doubt a big disappointment for tokyo revenge : the third best-selling manga in Japan in 2021, the anime is nominated in various categories but draws no awards. The full list of winners can be found below.
