Whoah, this seems like fun!

But I have to ask, Best New Anime, do films that are in a series count? For example, films that are like the 5th in a total series but released in 2014?

Let me know, and I'll be back with my nominations.

Archaic1220d ago

Yes, films in a series would count. All that matters there is that it was released in 2014.

Hergula1217d ago (Edited 1217d ago )

Thanks for letting me know Archaic, much love. But is there even a reason for me to give my nominations? As you have already picked out the most popular ones, like the majority of award givers do, so it seems kind of pointless for me to give you my noms, might as well just vote on the ones you have listed?

Archaic1217d ago

You'll see I didn't just pick out the most popular stuff from nominations. ;) Several of those on our short-lists weren't even nominated by the users at all!

But yes, nominations are closed now, so just put in your vote at this stage.
