Yay for Aki toyosaki & Okamoto! I really love him as Usui and Accelerator~.
Voice actor for zoro also grabbed an award for himself.
I'm not sure about kuroko's va getting the award..she sound like a granny.
But I do know that Uchiyama Kouki totally deserves that award, his voice acting in Shiki and fairy tail is enjoyable! Satomi Satou also deserves her award for doing such a good job as wendy and ritsu.
