The Crunchyroll Anime Awards results are in. Attack on Titan Final Season Part 1 ultimately took Anime of the Year--likely to little surprise.

Attack on Titan also won for Best Antagonist (Eren Jaegar), Best Opening Sequence, and Best VA Performance (Japanese). Beyond that, it was a pretty diverse assortment of winners across the board with strong showings. For example, Oddtaxi took prizes for both Best Protagonist (Odokawa) and Best Director (Baku Kinoshita) and Jujutsu Kaisen (Cour 2) won for Best Girl (Nobara Kugisaki), Best Fight Scene (Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo VS Hanami), Best Character Design (Tadashi Hiramatsu), Best Action, Best VA Performance (German) for René Dawn-Claude - Satoru Gojo, and Best VA Performance (Portuguese) for Léo Rabelo and Satoru Gojo.
