"Thank you so much for all of your votes and congratulations!
This year we reached our 30th anniversary thanks to everyone's continued love and support.
Thank you for taking part in our anime election.
We received almost 10,000 votes from fans overseas and in Japan.
We're so happy to be able to connect directly with fans outside of Japan in this way, and we'd love to continue doing more fun projects with you all, and of course make lots more amazing anime for everyone!
We hope you continue to enjoy NBCUniversal's future anime and music projects!"

Beginning in 1992 with the Tenchi Muyo! OVA, 2022 marks NBCUniversal Entertainment’s 30th year in business and counting.
The last 30 years has seen a huge expansion of the anime market on a global scale, which means that there is now intense rivalry not only between production companies but also between streaming platforms and other anime-related businesses. While taking a look back on these last 30 years, a special 30th anniversary project is being launched as a starting point for the years to come.
The concept for NBCUniversal’s Anime×Music 30th Anniversary project is “multiply” (×).
NBCUniversal aims to combine anime, music and people together to create something above and beyond.
Just like the × in ANIME×MUSIC, by crossing two ideas together, this project will bring forth something new to enjoy and set the stage even higher for the future.
