Award Explanations



Best Seiyū: Best Voice Actor or Actress

Gen Urobunchi's Best Death Award: An award dedicated to writer Urobunchi. Nominate your best death of 2015! Villian, Hero, Side character or otherwise!

Dumbest Character: Who was the dumbest character in this season? Who ground your gears? Intentionally due to the writers or perhaps due to being badly written? It's up to you. I think that Dumbest leads to a more interesting pick than worst.

Most Disappointing Anime: Once again a more interesting option than worse IMO. What did you go into with high hopes or what started good and ended badly?




May the best anime win!

Best Opening Theme: Death Parade (Bradio - Flyers)
Best Ending Theme: Gintama (Three Lights Down Kings - Glorious Days)
Best Anime Moment: Sea King Fight (One Punch Man)
Best Seiyū: N/A
Gen Urobunchi’s Best Death Award: I really wanna give it to Death Parade for the feels, but they're technically already dead in that anime, so I'll go for Sea King (One Punch Man)
Best Girl: Stella (Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry), she wins it by far, Papi (Monster Musume) is the only one that comes remotely close to Stella-chan.
Dumbest Character: Not sure whether this means how stupid the character is intellectually, or the worst and dumbest design, if it's for the former, I'll go with Ginti (Death Parade), and for the latter, I'll go with Shizuku (Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)
Best Anime Thread Post: N/A
Best Anime Thread Member(Put down up to three members): 1. Beans on Toast
Best titties: Ebina-chan of course is there any other answer?
Best Attack: Ittou Shura (Kurogane Ikki - Rakudai Kishi no Cavalry)
Most Disappointing Anime: Umaru-Chan
Best Anime Film: Persona 3 Second Movie
Anime that most needs another series/film: Overlord
Most Anticipated Anime of 2016: N/A
Best overall Anime of the Year: Death Parade

Overall this year Death Parade was just gooseberry fool amazing. Great opening, great anime, great ending, honestly think it was really good. Rakudai is also really good, probably my close second but it gets docked points because Shizuku absolutely sucks. A battle anime that defies convention, what? The guy actually gooseberry fool gets the girl what? He gets a boner instead of a nosebleed what? Really great anime IMO.

Meanwhile, Gintama, while being awesome, hasn't been as good as these previously mentioned 2. It's been running a long time now, and I feel like the quality is still really good. I'd feel cheap giving it more than the award it has, as other anime worked way harder for their awards.

One Punch Man was also gooseberry fool awesome, I think I mentioned the Sea King fight multiple times, and I mostly love it due to Licenceless Rider. If there was an award for best supporting character, he'd get it without a question. Boros fight was good, but didn't have the same impact as the Sea King fight IMO. The ending theme was utter garbage unfortunately.

Monster Musume was a great bit of fun to watch, but being honest it didn't really deserve any of these awards. The opening, while good, is far outclassed by Death Parade, Gintama Opening 2, and One Punch Man, and Stella is a better girl than Papi so unfortunately it doesn't get anything from me.

here's the essay you've been patiently waiting for
Best Opening Theme: 2015 was a pretty good year for OPs. From the stuff already repped in this thread like Flyers, Diamond and Insight, to Hello World and Talking among many others. Ultimately though I'm going to have to give it to Ano Mori de Matteru, Yuri Kuma Arashi's OP, for being incredibly easy on the ears and soul. Plus I want to give this show some recognition at least.


Best Ending Theme: A considerably less close race for this one. Assuming I can't nominate literally every single Ninja Slayer ED (gooseberry fool Boris, god damn Trigger) then I pick Sugar Song To Bitter Step from Kekkai Sensen for its wonderful funk and all the white people dancing.


Best Seiyū: As much as I want to give this to Miyu Matsuki for most realistic death scene of the year, this is a no contest for Aoi Yuuki. The range she displayed in 2015 was incredibly solid. She was Diane in Seven Deadly Sins too but I didn't watch that eton mess lol nice try seth. Looking forward to her as Mayoi in the GS anime this year, even if the show's eton mess at least the voices will keep me going.


Best Girl: There were a load of great girls this year, but if I had to pick the one that made my heart go doki doki the most I'd choose Shirayuki from Akagami no Shirayuki. It helps that she's voiced by the wonderful Saori Hayami too.


Dumbest Character: This award has been rigged and will go to Tsubasa from Gatchaman insight no matter what you vote for don't believe the lies. I'd also like to give shout outs to Zenigata from Lupin for being fooled by a painting of Lupin on the ground and every single harem lead of 2015.


Best Anime Thread Post: I mean surely this one is obvious.


Best Anime Thread Member(Put down up to three members):
1.
beansontoast for single-handedly saving anime in the year of our Lord 2015.
2. jimbob555 for his excellent Fairy Tail x Rave review.
3. Honestly there are a lot of really great guys in the anime thread I'm glad I get to discuss a lot of this stuff with you. Y'all need to watch more eton mess though step up your game. Get active. C'mon. Serious. All of you are good though I mean it. Well, most of you. Not 3try and Corin though.


Best titties: Obviously this is the toughest one yet. Voting for Hajime's hajimes. :>


Best Attack: There's no competition here, it's quite clearly the Sosunser.


Most Disappointing Anime: It's probably a little unfair to call Digimon Adventure tri the MOST disappointing anime of the year as it's intended entirely as a set up film but to be honest there wasn't a lot I was too excited over in 2015. Based purely on how much I was expecting it:how much I ended up enjoying it, if I didn't pick this I'd probably end up going with One Punch Man or something. I dunno why I bothered putting any expectations into Toei, how do they keep getting away with this.


Best Anime Film: There's very little competition for this. Miss Hokusai was wonderfully animated and had absolutely gorgeous direction, and despite the film not being what I expected at all it still turned out to be one of my favourites of 2015. I haven't seen Bakemono no Ko, but to be perfectly honest I'm not expecting a masterpiece from Hosoda. The only other thing that could come close is Little Witch Academia 2, which was an absolute visual treat.


Anime that most needs another series/film: There's very little from this year I can think of that requires more content and isn't already getting it, so for this one I'm going to vote for the Animator Expo. I really hope we get to see more of the kind of amazing content it offered this year, from new and old names alike.


Most Anticipated Anime of 2016: 2016 is definitely an interesting year. New Tenchi Muyo, new FMP, new Digimon, new Berserk, new JoJo, Gyakuten Saiban, Kizumonogatari... like, at this point you might as well just confirm Spice and Wolf S3 and Haruhi S3 just to add the icing on the cake. And that's not even getting into all the new IPs and adaptations of things like Koe no Katachi. Overall there's a lot I'm hesitantly excited for but Mob Psycho 100's recently announced adaptation is going to win it. I'm pretty cautious about it considering how little we know (other than gooseberry fool Bones) so we'll see how things turn out as more news develops. One thing I will say, if they don't adapt it in black and white I gooseberry fool drop that eton mess.


Best overall Anime of the Year: The Japan Animator Expo. I actually thought a lot about this one. In all honesty, 2015 wasn't a stand out year for TV anime, as while there were a handful of shows I could say I enjoyed, there was nothing that blew me away to the point where I could easily and happily say it was my pick for the year. I was worried I'd have to settle for a half-hearted "well, it was good enough" choice for AOTY, when I remembered the Animator Expo. It's honestly hard to put into words exactly how fantastic the Animator Expo is, because every single short is so varied in terms of animation, quality, entertainment, direction and so on, but that's part of what makes it so unique. It's very rare you get to point to something and say, genuinely, "this has something for everyone", but the Animator Expo is exactly that. No matter what kind of anime you watch or even if you're not a fan of anime at all, as long as you have some sense of appreciation for animation as an art form or merely as a means of entertainment there will be something in the Animator Expo that you will derive enjoyment from; whether it's the visually gorgeous and Kafka-esque Nishi-Ogikubo Station; the more eccentric and bizarre fast paced humour of Kanon; the overtly sexual and satirical what-the-gooseberry fool of Me!Me!Me!; the crude charm of Sex & Violence; all this among so many other brilliant works like Tomorrow from there, I can Friday by day!, Iconic Field, Bubu & Bubulina, Robot on the Road, and a very deliberate ending on Cassette Girl, which doubles as a love letter to the style of older 70s-80s era anime and as a welcome into the future of the medium - because that's what the Animator Expo truly is. There are so many different shorts from so many different directors and teams, yet each manages to stand out on its own. As you would obviously expect from a project this big some are much better than others, but every single one is worth watching. With an astonishing display of amazing skill from across the entire industry, including both old favourites such as Hiroyuki Okiura and a swarm of new talents, Animator Expo is one of those rare things that reminds us why anime, and even animation as a whole, is worthwhile. Absolutely the greatest anime project of the past year, and perhaps even the high point of anime so far in the 21st century. Honestly, it would be borderline criminal to give the award to anything else.


Some final shout outs to other shows from this year: Yuri Kuma Arashi was a brilliantly directed (as expected from Ikuhara) satirical take on the depictions of lesbianism in Japanese media that is definitely worth a watch assuming you're not the kind of person who is instantly turned off a show by the sight of cute girls. One Punch Man definitely had its share of flaws - mostly in the way Madhouse handled the pacing of the series and particularly the humour, at points edging a tad close to the boring shonen clichés the series is supposed to be poking fun at - but at the same time I can't watch the final fight with Boros against Saitama and not absolutely love every frame of it. Kekkai Sensen was a show teeming with potential and Rie Matsumoto is a next-level visual director, yet it suffers tenfold from the same problems her previous work, Kyousougiga, did - namely the way the characters and story are conveyed. Blame Bones, as always. Non Non Biyori Repeat was like Non Non Biyori again, but more. Iyashikei, man. Hibike! Euphonium was another visual treat from KyoAni, and a more than welcome return to form after the rather hit-and-miss year they had in 2014 (barring Tamako Love Story). Finally, short films are my gooseberry fool jam and while I haven't seen everything I wanted to see in 2015 (mostly because a lot aren't publicly available yet) I'll leave a brief list of some stand outs from what I managed to catch so far: Yutaro Kubo's LOVE&GIFT was the experimental eye candy I've become accustomed to from his works, The Lost Breakfast was a humorous if slightly discomforting short about OCD, Macky and Eucky in Midnight Gallery was a fantastic emulation of the style and humour of 1930s-era shorts with a very modern twist on things and Masanobu Hiraoka's L'Œil du Cyclone was one of the most visually stunning pieces I watched all year.
Now somebody please gooseberry fool shoot me for writing 1500 words about gooseberry fool anime.
