ESPORTSREPORTER.COM / DANTE SRILAPA – SENIOR EDITOR / FEBRUARY 20TH, 2021 /
In case you missed it, the Crunchyroll Anime Awards of 2021 occurred yesterday. Although 2020 was a historically garbage year, it was a really good year for anime. Watching the awards was a real nail biter too, especially because each category was stacked with strong contenders. There was never a single option that I was rooting for, making it really painful to have to vote for only one.
That being said, the awards were very well deserved and the entire show was a joy to watch. Crunchyroll has come a long, long way from what it used to be. As an early subscriber, I’m really happy with it.
To watch the awards show, click here. If you’d rather just see the winners, I’ve got them listed below in alphabetical order based on the category.
