    The MangaHelpers Anime Awards 2010 Discussion Thread

    Welcome to The MangaHelpers Anime Awards, an awards competition where you, the fans, nominate and decide what is the best of the best in the Anime world.



    General Rules

    The nomination process

    Who will submit the nominations?
    The nominations will be submitted by members of the staff and by you, the members of the site. In that way, all the members of the site will come together to decide what is the best of the best.

    How to submit a nomination
    Submit a nomination for the different award categories by posting in this thread and by explaining why said series/character/event deserves to be a nominee for that award category. The explanation cannot be longer than three lines. Please add a link to MAL where pertinent and please provide links to videos on youtube if available for the OP/ED/Insert song/ Anime OST categories.

    - You don’t have to nominate for all the award categories, but you can only make 1 nomination for each award category.

    -Out of all the nominations for the different award categories, only the 5 nominations that earn the most support (“votes”) become the official nominees.

    - To show your support for a nomination, the only thing you need to do is to you write a post in this thread indicating your support for said nomination.

    -The nomination process will take place from now until the next two weeks; you can edit your nomination at any time during that period. To edit a nomination, please make a new post and follow the template to change a nomination, if you don’t, your new nomination won’t be considered.

    - Once a series/character/event has been nominated, it doesn’t need to be nominated for a second time. If you agree with said nomination, please use the appropriate template to support it and please post your nomination in The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Nomination Thread. This thread will be for discussion only.

    -Please respect the opinions and nominations of others. It’s okay if you don’t like a series or a character or an event that another person nominates and it’s okay if you don’t agree with said nomination; but please do not bash the character, or the series, or event, or the person who posts the nomination. The purpose of The MangaHelpers Anime Awards is to do something as a whole community while having fun, not to initiate any kind of drama or fights.

    -In case an award category doesn’t have enough nominations, the rest of the nominees will come from a panel of experts and members from the staff.

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    just a suggestion, you might want to split the "Best Animation" category into 3 sub-categories (TV Series, OVAs and Movies"). Otherwise, Miyazaki and Studio Ghibli will sweep, not giving some other anime with really good technical and mechanical animation a chance to win

    My best Soundtrack (insert track) vote is so hard to decide - it's definitly going to Hellsing, but it has so many great tracks

    Oh sorry for my nominations right away, I'm really not much into anime so my field of view is kinda narrow here
    I'll probably pick up some of the winners after the contest though.

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    We have a lot more categories this time, since some members gave feedback that we had too little for the Manga Awards I can see how those 2 categories could have gotten missed when scrolling through the long list

    I'm personally quite revved to see what series are nominated, and of course which series eventually make the next round and win. I guess Ghibli films will take quite a number of awards. Other than that I'm not really sure.

    I'm hoping the Anime Awards doesn't end up with results too similar to the manga awards in that like, Best Shounen, Best Full Cast etc goes to One Piece again, or something like that. After all even when it comes to anime adaptations, they can be vastly different from their original counterparts. And of course, there are many other options now such as original anime, or those adapted from light novels, VNs or games etc, so yeah.

    I got the feeling that the "big three" won't be nearly as successful here for some reason... I hope I'm right with that

    Guess I'll have to go watching some good anime before the nominations end, the size of my pool of animes to choose out of really is pitiful.

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    Well, I certainly hope you're right, too! As you know I don't dislike the big 3, but seeing them sweep the Manga Awards was kinda... I do hope to see a wider range of series here Especially since there are more ways for more series to shine/be nominated since there are so many categories

    Have you watched Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann? If not, watch it! Certified awesome by Kaiten, Nuno, Koen and me. And I think Thorny too iirc I think you would enjoy Durarara!! and Baccano! as well, since you like deeper stuff with more intricate plots

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    Just a little notion because I just saw it in the nominations thread:
    A post like this doesn't make much sense:

    Quote Originally Posted by Example

    Why? Because nobody knows what "could be" in that spoiler... so given I'ld be watching Pokemon, I'ld click it because I don't know that it's a Pokemon spoiler, and see that Caterpie would die.

    Please add a description of what series the spoiler is about beforehand, or use the spoiler tag like this:
    [spoiler=Pokemon]
    This way everyone know's what series is beeing spoilered and can decide whether to look at it or not.

    Disclaimer: Caterpie doesn't really die... I think °_°

    Very good point! Thanks! I added to the OP in the nominations thread - saladesu

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    I guess Kopt3 would really enjoy Baccano, it's more mature compared to Durarara. It's a bloody mess, literally, and Kopt3 being a Seinen fan I'm betting all my money on him liking the series. Plus it's not very long so it's easy to get through. Two words; Rail Tracer. You will love the guy.

    As for the nominations, I sure hope the big 3 don't sweep the floor here. None of them are great animes at this point. The only one of them that is doing the manga justice on a decent overall basis is Bleach. If OP wins best cast here I'll groan, my vote will probably go to Baccano there.

    I'd be glad to provide some recommendations, hehe. Though I don't watch all anime, but with what I know I can help, review, and/or recommend for you, or anyone

    Hmm. I liked the Baccano cast, but some of them were a little meh imo, and less memorable. If we're talking about Narita's works here then I'd go with Durarara!!, the characters intrigued me right off the bat and they're probably the reason why I loved DRRR!! more than Baccano /is biased

    The moment where the main character finally gets a happy ending and where we get to see every cast of Clannad! Looking back, this song fits the mood perfectly and gives both a feeling of joy and sadness
    As soon as I saw zeltrax225’s nomination for best insert song, I was completely sure that "Chiisana te no Hira" was also going to be my nomination for that award category. However, then I read CBlitz’s post

    and his nomination for the same award category and after listening to “Monochrome"” I don’t know what song should I support anymore, they are both such great songs. I haven’t watched Star Driver but that insert song is amazing!!!

    Re: The MangaHelpers Anime Awards Discussion Thread

    Speaking of insert songs there's also Ceui's Energy (LOL Heroes) and May'n/Nakajima Megumi's Nyan Nyan Service Medley (Macross Frontier). I'm totally torn between these and Monochrome from Star Driver

    There are also a bunch of great insert songs from Gundam 00 (Unlimited Sky), Gurren Lagann (Happily Ever After) and Suzumiya Haruhi (God Knows) I really like, plus the other insert songs in Macross Frontier... But ugh. Gotta make a choice!
