My Hero Dominates Crunchyroll Anime Awards, But Devilman Crybaby Takes Top Spot

Every Crunchyroll Anime Awards winner has now been announced. In a repeat of last year's results, My Hero Academia has once again gone home as the most awarded anime of the year, winning five of the 15 categories. Also like last year, though, My Hero Academia lost when it came to Anime of the Year.

This year, the Anime of the Year award goes to Devilman Crybaby, a series created by Science Saru. A 2018 Netflix Original that premiered January 5, Devilman Crybaby is an anime adaptation of Go Nagai's 1970s Devilman manga. Devilman has been adapted before, but Crybaby is the first to update the story with a modern day setting, and the anime includes new characters and an adjusted plot. Devilman Crybaby focuses on two best friends, Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka. After discovering demons are real, Akira convinces Ryo to become possessed by one in order to give humanity a fighting chance against the supernatural threat. Now half human and half demon, Ryo calls himself the Devilman and protects the world as a violent superhero.
