What Are the Anime Awards 2022 Nominations, Attack on Titan and More 1

Nomination voting is now open for the upcoming Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2022 and this past year had a ton of juicy anime content with a chance to win Anime of the Year.

Calling all otakus (anime fans) out there! One of the biggest anime awards ceremonies is coming up and your favourite anime of the year depends on you. The sixth annual Crunchyroll Anime Awards is kicking off next month, pitting the best of 2021’s anime shows against each other. This year is wild for anime, so much so, Eren Jaeger is nominated as both Best Protagonist and Best Antagonist…so smelly.

Some of the biggest contenders are Attack on Titan with 11 nominations in 10 categories, Jujutsu Kaisen with a whopping 16 nominations in 14 categories and ODDTAXI with 11 nominations in 11 categories. Demon Slayer has been having a great year as well, especially with release of its theatrical release film and second season release; they are up for 9 nominations in 9 categories.

It is surprising not to see My Hero Academia in more categories as it is only going to be represented for Best Antagonist with Tomura Shigaraki. While Izuku Midoriya will not be on the podium for Best Boy, Tokyo Revengers has two nominations in that category for Ken ‘Draken’ Ryuguji and Manjiro ‘Mikey’ Sano—with an additional four nominations in other categories.
