During the final day of the Machi Asobi Vol. 23 event in Tokushima, Japan, Monthly Newtype Magazine announced the winners of their annual Newtype Awards. And as expected, several popular anime were dominating the event. The results are:

Best Anime (TV): Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba

Best Anime (Theatrical Screening): Promare

Other winners include:

  • Best Character (Male): Tanjirou Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
  • Best Character (Female): Nezuko Kamado (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
  • Best Mascot Character: Vinny (Promare)
  • Best Voice Actor: Natsuki Hanae
  • Best Voice Actress: Akari Kitou
  • Best Theme Song: “Gurenge” by LiSA (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
  • Best Soundtrack: Elements Garden (Uta no Prince Sama Maji Love Kingdom)
  • Best Director: Haruo Sotozaki (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
  • Best Screenplay: Kazuki Nakashima (Promare)
  • Best Character Design: Akira Matsushima, Miyuki Satou, Yōko Kajiyama, Mika Kikuchi, original design: Koyoharu Gotouge (Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba)
  • Best Mechanical and Prop Design: Shigeto Koyama (Promare)
  • Nogizaka46 Award: The Promised Neverland

The winners were selected via fan vote, but it should also be noted that the Machi Asobi event is organised by Hikaru Kondo, the president of ufotable, which animated Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba. However, since the anime won via fan voting, it would be safe to say that the organisers had no hand in the anime dominating the awards. Eligible anime for the awards must have been released between Summer 2018 (July 2018) until Spring 2019 (June 2019).
