Nominations are needed for a few categories that have nothing to do with the genre of the anime. Below is a list of each of these categories and their criteria.
- Best Female Character – Any humanoid character who appears human at first glance and who is also female.
- Best Male Character – Any humanoid character who appears human at first glance and who is also male.
- Best Non-human Character – Any character who is visibly not human. Also includes human characters that have been so altered by science that they no longer resemble a human.
- Cutest Creature – Any non-human.
- Best Designed Character – Best character in terms of dialogue, character design, characterization, character development, and relationships with other characters.
- Best Designed World – A world or place that appears in an anime that is both unique and interesting. It doesn’t have to be a world, cities count as well.
I will allow each person to nominate three characters (or places) for each category. If you can’t think of three then just put down the ones you can think of. Any character (or place) that appears in an anime that had episodes that aired originally in 2016 are eligible. It is possible that a character (or place) that you chose is disqualified for either being from something I didn’t watch or by having no chance against the other characters. I will get the final say as to which characters (or places) win the awards.
To nominate a character (or place) please either comment on this post or use this survey to anonymously nominate characters and places.
Also please share this survey with anyone who has been following anime during 2016. The more nominations the better.
