  • What are these nominees? The most no name anime I've ever seen. Like who watches every 0815 anime with 5-7/10 star reviews? I dont need One Piece or Naruto but at least something that people actually have watched. I couldnt vote for most of the nominees...

  • jjk season 2 was the most diabolical anime the sheer level of destruction, violence, killing of the main cast, and most of all the level of disrespect some of the character choose to do.
