2024 Crunchyroll Anime Awards To Debut Three New Categories


The next Crunchyroll Anime Awards will be held in Tokyo this coming March. The recipients of said awards will be chosen much like they were last year: over 100 figures from in and around the anime industry will choose nominees, and anime fans from around the world will vote on which ones win. The complete list of categories was revealed today, and it includes three new ones: Best Art Direction, Best Cinematography and Best Slice of Life.

These will join over twenty returning categories from 2023 including Best Main Character, Best Supporting Character, Best Score, Best Ending Sequence and Anime Of The Year.

“Anime is a dynamic art form, offering an adventure for every kind of fan, and we are honored to celebrate the creative talent behind the medium that is captivating viewers around the world,” said Rahul Purini, President of Crunchyroll. “From the depth of artistry, nuanced storytelling, and pure joy that anime brings to so many, we look forward to gathering again in Japan to honor the best of anime this year.”

As for the nominees themselves, you’ll have to wait another month, Crunchyroll plans to reveal who’s in the running on January 17, 2024. The awards ceremony itself will take place Saturday, March 2, 2024.
