Sorry for the wait on this one! Unfortunately, I didn’t have a lot of time this year so there’s a bunch of shows I didn’t get to see – and stuff like Beastars which was being held hostage by Netflix and not legally simulcast. But we did still get through a decent amount of the year’s offerings, so it’s time for the 2019 autopsy!


Before we start, here’s the usual set of disclaimers:
Disclaimer 1: Again, none of us watched everything that aired this year, so bear in mind that our individual picks are more drawing from the pool of ‘what 2019 anime I watched this year’ rather than ‘what 2019 anime aired this year’. It’s entirely possible that there are a number of fantastic  (and terrible) shows we never got the chance to see that deserved awards in one or more category.
Disclaimer 2: These are the opinions of the reviewers and some of these opinions may only be based on the first episode of each show.
Disclaimer 3: This feature is purely for fun and if you disagree with any of the views of any of the reviewers that’s perfectly fine, and you’re even welcome to voice your disagreement for the sake of discussion in the comments…just don’t be a moron about it.
Disclaimer 4: There’s spoilers, it’s kind of hard to avoid it – particularly for ‘best scene/episode’. Because of this, we’ve decided that from 2019 onwards the ‘Best scene/episode’ reviews will be at the end of the feature, so anyone wanting to avoid the spoilers can read the rest first and stop there if they want to.

So without further ado, let us begin the Moeronpan Anime Awards, 2019 edition! (more…)

I can’t think of a caption, so here’s another reminder that we will be getting to the 2019 awards post after the FIs are done.
