Anime of the Year
Jujutsu Kaisen (COUR 2)
Needless to say, Jujutsu Kaisen was really one of the breathtaking anime series of the year 2021.
Unlike other cute and clumsy female anime characters, Nobara is one hell of a tomboyish girl.
A character with natural-born abilities like Yuji is a character to consider.
Best Fight Scene
Yuji Itadori and Aoi Todo vs. Hanami
‘Brothers’ fighting together with a cursed spirit was amusing in itself.
Yuji Itadori and Nobara Kugisaki vs. Eso and Kechizu
When two likable characters fight together, relying on each other’s skill, it sure pains our hearts when the scene ends.
A thunderclap to the director of Jujutsu Kaisen, and also the anime series ‘God of High School,’ for directing such an awesome series.
Jujutsu Kaisen (cour 2)
Without any doubt, Jujutsu Kaisen had one of the best animations.
Best Character Design
Being a salaryman and quitting it for animation is a tough decision. All thanks to Tadashi’s hard work for making such amazing character designs.
Best VA Performance (English)
Adam McArthur- Yuji Itadori
Adam McArthur is an American voice actor based in Los Angeles, California, popularly known for voicing Yuji Itadori.
Best Opening Sequence
