The prestigious Tokyo Anime Award Festival will be presenting the Fan Award, which gives fans the power to choose the winner, for the very first time with this year’s edition. The award’s official twitter account has recently announced that the initial voting has now ended and the final round has now begun.
Only the top 20 anime have made it however and they are:
1) Love Live! School Idol Project
3) Danball Senki Wars
6) Gintama: The Movie: The Final Chapter: Be Forever Yorozuya
7) Valvrave the Liberator
8) Zettai Karen Children the Unlimited – Hyoubu Kyousuke
9) Fantasista Doll
10) Tesagure! Bukatsu-mono
12) Busuo Shinki (TV anime series)
13) Pretty Rhythm Rainbow Live
14) Girls und Panzer
17) Blue Exorcist the Movie
18) Danball Senki W
19) Majestic Prince
20) Madoka Magica the Movie: The Rebellion Story
Voting for the final round has now begun and you can now vote on your choice through the official website. Only anime which were shown from the period of November 1, 2013 – October 31, 2013 are included so older series like Dragon Ball Z and The Malancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya as well as newer anime like Super Sonico weren’t included in the initial round of voting.
Love Live! maintained the top spot since voting began while series like Senyu and Danball Senki Wars have most certainly upstaged big name series like Free!, Girls und Panzer and Valvrave. The critically acclaimed third Madoka Magica movie also barely just made it to the final round.
The winner of this award will be announced on March 22, 2014. The event will be held at the Toho Cinemas Nihonbashi from March 20-23, 2014 and will feature the biggest names in the anime industry.
