The wordpress anime awards 2018: Ladies and Gentlemen, the results are in!

Hello everybody,

What better way to start the year then with a look back, or more precisely the results of the first ever anime awards that were held on WordPress. After a careful selection by a wonderful group of performers: Cactus Matt, Derek Lyons, Marthaurion, Matt Doyle, Jon Spencer, Karandi, Star & Luna, BiblioNyan, Lethargic Ramblings, Ano Nora, Ty-chama, Mech Anime Reviews, itsaanimething, and myself, our intrepid ringmaster the great and wonderful Ayano presented all the categories to you in this  amazing post. After that all of you voted for your favorites for which we all thank you so much! But alas, the carnival closed at the stroke of midnight on december the 31st 2018. However, the carnival has one last trick up it’s sleave, and that’s presenting you with the results of your votes. Before I get to that, I want to thank all the performers named above for their wonderful contributions. Without you this amazing project would not have been possible.

Yes, let’s all take a bow!

But I save the final thanks for Ayano, who’s tireless efforts on this project was truly the driving force without whom these awards would never have seen the light of day. So really, thank you and be proud of yourself! I have had a blast participating in this, and can only hope that this year we can do it again! (Hint, hint, hint). Now…without further ado:

  1. Thank you so much for joining me on this adventure! I’m still a little surprised by some of the category results, but mostly pleased on how different the outcome was. It’s refreshing to see so many other anime get to be winners instead of just the more popular anime series. Everyone that worked on this project was amazing. I can’t thank you all enough 💖

      1. Hmm, it’s unfortunately still pretty much the same 😢 I had a new test on friday, and hope to get the results this week for that. Hopefully something comes out of it, so I can get some proper treatment. Thank you for your concern, and asking about it. That’s very sweet of you 😘❤️ I hope you are doing well yourself? 😊


    1. I so need to continue with that series (then again, there are so many other series that I need to continue with lol 😅😅).
      It really was amazing fun to work with everyone on this project! Hopefully we can do it again later this year😊
      Ps: like your new avatar, it looks very cool! 😊😊


  3. Most of these winners are ones I chose!! Honda-san winning Best Boy runner-up made me laugh… I did not expect that, hahaha! Great work to you and everyone else in the team. 😀

  4. I think there should be an award for Most Bonkers/weird Title of an anime, and I’d give it to That Time I got Reincarnated as a Slime with runner up Rascal Does Not Dream of Bunny-girl Senpai. 🙂 well done for all the hard work on this.

    1. Lol😂😂 That is actually not such a bad idea. Maybe we will put that one up next year or erm this year as it is I guess 😅😅
      Rascal Does not Dream of Bunny -girl Senpai, cetainly has the weirdest sounding title ever, (I would not even have started watching it if someone did not tell me gow great this was)😊 Thanks as always for your comment: hopefully all is going well with you 😊😊

      1. Thank you for asking 😊 Well, I wish I could say yes to that question, but things are pretty much still the same. Had a new test taken on friday, and hopefully that will get some results in finding out what’s wrong at the moment. I’m hanging in there though😊😊

      2. I would definitely be game for that, that’s for sure😊 Because whatever this is…it’s seriously annoying. (it is Raistlin Syndrome, it would fit the name of the character though lol 😂).

    1. Thank you so much Pete 😊 Pretty much all of these were from last year’s anime offerings (besides the recurring ones). I think you would love Attack on Titan and Rascal does not dream of Bunny Girl Senpai (despite the weird title, that one is really amazing 😊). Hopefully all is going well with you Pete 😊

    The fans have spoken and we have listened! The results of the first ever WordPress Anime Awards are in!

    Honestly, I’m surprised and pleased at the broad range of shows represented. Some were the ones I suspected, others were a bit of a surprise… But it does show that anime fandom isn’t monolithic and does like a broad variety.

    Of course, it goes without saying that I’m pleased the fans recognized Yorimoi! 🙂

    Anyhow, check ’em out and let me know your thoughts down in the comments!

  6. This was so much fun to read 😀 Well done to you all for doing such a great job of it 🙂
    So many great anime, I can really see why they won top spot. Especially the best animation winner- Violet Evergarden. I was in awe watching that, the animation was so beautiful 😀

    1. Thank you for always writing a great comment! 😊 I’m glad you enjoyed it. It was certainly a lof of fun to put this together. Hopefuly we will get a chance to do this again this year (and I hope to be back myself too as soon as my health is back in working order 😊).
      As for Violet Evergarden: I could not agree with you more: the show was absolutely amazing, and probably the best anime that I have seen all year last year 😊
