Crunchyroll Anime Awards Return to Tokyo in 2024

by Wayne Ayers

In a star-studded celebration of anime, the orange carpet is about to be rolled out for anime’s best and brightest!

Crunchyroll, the international brand dedicated to delivering the ultimate anime experience, announced today that the eighth edition of the Crunchyroll Anime Awards will return to Tokyo, Japan on March 2, 2024, with a live ceremony at the Hotel Shin Takanawa honoring the creators, musicians, and performers who fuel the global love of anime.

Sally Amaki, a well-known voice actress, and popular entertainer Jon Kabira will also return to host the Anime Awards in Tokyo in 2024.

Amaki is a member of Sony Music and ANIPLEX’s digital voice actor idol project 22/7 (Nanabun no Nijuni), as well as the English and Japanese voices of Carol Olston in Tomo-chan Is a Girl!. Kabira is a host and emcee with a long history in entertainment, having worked in radio, music, sports, and more.

“The Anime Awards are the first and only global awards show dedicated to the craft of anime, and we can’t wait to celebrate this year’s series, films, and music chosen by the global fans,” said Rahul Purini, President of Crunchyroll. “It was an easy decision to return and allow global fans to share their love and admiration directly with anime’s creative community. We’re thrilled to spotlight the creators, storytellers and our trusted partners in Japan for all that they do for anime fans.”

An array of celebrity anime fans, including director Robert Rodriguez (Desperado, From Dusk Till Dawn), actor Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things, Pinocchio, Ghostbusters, IT), sports superstar Juju Smith-Schuster (Super Bowl winner, Kansas City Chiefs), and WWE’s Zelina Vega, attended the Anime Awards 2023 earlier this year.

The ballroom was rocked by rousing performances by ALI, a group based on roots music with a crossover of Hip Hop, Rock, and Ska, composer KOHTA YAMAMOTO, and songwriter and composer Yuki Kajiura, and the night ended with Cyberpunk: Edgerunners being named the 2023 Anime of the Year.

The Crunchyroll Anime Awards are the leading yearly awards program that recognizes fan-favorite anime series, characters, and creators across streaming, film, and music.

Fans from more than 200 countries and territories cast 18 million votes earlier this year to show their support for the nominees, who represented anime excellence across more than 30 anime studios, eight streaming platforms, over 50 series and films, and more than 50 voice actors.

Nominations and voting will begin in early 2024. More information is available on the Anime Awards website and on Crunchyroll’s social media channels.
