This time, the nominations are opened to foreigners. I have a big interest in the seiyuu, and their work. However, EXPECT: A LOT OF BITCHING WHEN THE AWARDS WILL BE GIVEN!!!!
Something like “Waaaah! Waaaaah! My seiyuu was not nominated even tho he was absolutely spectacular in that show that received unfair bias because of its genre!!! Waaaaaaaahh”.
Or people bitching about office politics, lobby pressure, etc, just because their favorites have not gotten their awards.
Who I expect:
Best Male: Jun Fukuyama (Lelouch Lamperouge). Code Geass basically stole the limelight during a major part of 2008.
Best Female: Aya Endo (Sheryl Nome)
Best Supporting Male: Keiji Fujiwara (Ali). IMO, he was better as Ladd Russo in Baccano.
Best supporting Female: Wow, I can’t think of one.
Best New Male: I’ll pass.
Best New Female: Haruka Tomatsu (Nagi)
Best Singer: I don’t care much.
Overseas Choice Award: Between Megumi Hayashibara (because of Slayers) or Rie Kugimiya.
Best Male: Yuuji Ueda (Krauser II). He brought the Emperor of Death Metal to life!
Best Female: Paku Romi (Kuromitsu). The definition of the black widow and the ice lady, the kind that haunt you with her ice-cold beauty and stab you in the back.
Best Supporting Male: Daisuke Ono have been already nominated for Hosaka. I’ll go for Tomokazu Sugita as Graham Spector in Baccano!
Best Supporting Female: Yui Horie as Minori from Toradora.
Best New Male: hahahahahah
Best New Female: No choice in mind.
Best Singer: again; j-pop is not really my cup of tea, if my posts on music did not tip you off really (Morricone, Godspeed you Black Emperor and Opeth).
Best Personality: I have no effing idea what it means. However, I’ll go for Daisuke Ono for having a bucketload of fun being Hosaka inside and outside the series. Just look at the videos somewhere on youtube or nicovideo if you don’t believe me.
Overseas Choice Award: Meh.
Meanwhile, I go to watch “Waltz with Bashir”. THIS, Japan, is HOW you should show war in animation!
