    Welcome to the Naruto Forums Anime Awards of 2018 (Presented by Squarespace)! 2018 saw some awesome and not so awesome shows. Just like the Oscars this year, there is no host removal of any category; every category will get the recognition they deserve!


    I FORGOT ALL THE SHOWS THAT AIRED IN 2018!

    Here are the shows that aired in 2018:



    WHAT ARE THE AWARDS CATEGORIES?
    The awards categories are broken into four groups:

    Main Best Awards:
    Spoiler:


















    Worst Awards:
    Spoiler:












    Genre Awards:
    Spoiler:




    Miscellaneous Awards:
    Spoiler:





    HOW DO I PARTICIPATE?
    In the first phase of the Anime Awards, you will choose a nominee for each awards category that you think deserves the award. Once the nominees have been counted for after the nomination phase, the top 5 nominees of each category will be chosen as the nominees. In the second phase of the Anime Awards, you will vote on said nominees for each category. You can pick and choose whatever category suits you; you don't have to nominate something in every category if they don't apply to you. You don't have to vote for every category either.

    WHAT IS THE DEADLINE?
    We are trying something slightly different this year. Instead of having you choose your picks for all 25 categories in two weeks, we will open up the nomination phase for one category group (Main Awards, Worst Awards, Genre Awards, Misc. Awards) at a time for one week. This way, you have a lot of time to really think about your choices and nail them down. There's no rush! So for example, this first week of nominations will be for the Main Awards. After one week, the Main Awards nominations will be closed and the second group of categories, the Worst Awards, will open up. And the process repeats for all the other groups. You can still be ahead of the game and vote for as many categories as you want if you're confident in you nominations. I won't count them until their respective nomination period starts if you decide to change it.

    Nomination Deadlines:
    Main Best Awards nominations: April 8 - April 15 (OVER)
    Worst Awards nominations: April 15 - April 21 (IN PROGRESS)
    Genre Awards nominations: April 22 - April 28
    Misc. Awards nominations: April 29 - May 5


    The voting phase will start a week or so after the nomination phase. Similar to the nomination phase, the voting phase will open up with one category group at a time. You will have a week to vote on said categories. The dates are TBD. Let's see how the nomination phase goes. :p

    AH so many to think about! Will be editing this post when I get round to looking at what I watched last season. Also may change a few times to don't have my input until I've got it final.

    Also for genre awards, is it possible to add sport in there? There was a lot of very good sports anime last year and I wouldn't want to see them muscled out in other categories.

    Oh okay lol, that'll throw out my 3-gatsu nomination then since it started airing in 2017 and then into 2018.

    If it was the first half, I could see Slime getting an award but the second half fell kinda flat. :catprone

    Hm....you know what. After thinking about it, I think that 3gatsu S2 can count. those splitcour/multiseason shows are always a gray area. But I'll let them count. Whatever you see on the seasonal charts listed in those MAL charts are allowed after all.

    just letting you know that the Best Animation category is for animes in general, not specific scenes from an anime.

    2017 had stuff like LWA, Dragon Maid, Konosuba, Made in Abyss. What did 2018 have?

    Might be a bit my personal taste though, I hear a lot of good things about 3-gatsu no Lion for example but haven't touched it because the synopsis makes it look the kind of apathetic pseudo-mature drama I won't enjoy

    it's actually one of the more heart warming anime out there, the shogi part might be confusing at first but the technicalities aren't the focus.

    Well it's not always heart warming. The characters in the show are insanely well written and the character development throughout the whole cast is solid as well. Nothing has been close to topping it as my favourite anime.
