Every Crunchyroll Anime Awards Winner, Including Anime Of The Year
My Hero Academia wins a third of the categories.
Every Crunchyroll Anime Awards winner has been announced. In a repeat of last year, My Hero Academia has once again gone home as the most awarded anime of the year, winning five of the 15 categories. Also like last year, though, the shonen series lost when it came to Anime of the Year. This year, the award goes to Devilman Crybaby.
A 2018 Netflix Original that premiered January 5, Devilman Crybaby is an anime adaptation of Go Nagai's 1970s Devilman manga. Devilman has been adapted before, but Crybaby is the first to update the story with a modern day setting, and the anime includes new characters and an adjusted plot. Devilman Crybaby focuses on two best friends, Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka. After discovering demons are real, Akira convinces Ryo to become possessed by one in order to give humanity a fighting chance against the supernatural threat. Now half human and half demon, Ryo calls himself the Devilman and protects the world as a violent superhero.

Other notable highlights during the Anime Awards were the world premiere of the trailer for the upcoming Made in Abyss movie, as well as a sneak peak at the upcoming Spring 2019 anime YU-NO: A Girl Who Chants Love at the Bound of the World. YU-NO is a combined effort by both Feel and Genco, two major anime studios. The former is responsible for animating series like Dagashi Kashi and Hinamatsuri, while the latter is the production company behind anime like Sword Art Online, Toradora, and Elfen Lied. During the Anime Awards, Crunchyroll also gave away some sweet Devil May Cry 5 and Hime-themed Xbox One consoles and controllers.
