The highly-anticipated winners of the 2022 Crunchyroll Anime awards have now been revealed.

Fans cast their votes across 26 different categories to crown the best anime voice actors, best animation, best fight scene, best protagonist, and more.

This year had a few bangers that took the anime scene by storm; Attack on Titan Final Season Part 1 literally broke Crunchyroll, and Jujutsu Kaisen’s high-flying action and impressive fight scenes had Shounen fans’ jaws on the floor.

Attack on Titan took home several big wins in Crunchyroll’s 2022 Anime Awards.

Of course, we can’t count out later additions like the adorable and heartfelt Ranking of Kings, which was released in October 2021.

Here are the winners of the 2022 Crunchyroll Anime Awards by category:

Anime of the Year: Attack on Titan Final Season Part 1

The 9-year-old Attack on Titan series is coming to an end with its final season.

Part 1 took home Crunchyroll’s Anime of the Year award — and it’s no surprise, considering the hype literally crashed Funimation and Crunchyroll’s streaming services (and it happened again a year later with the release of Part 2).

Best Protagonist: Odokawa – ODDTAXI

ODDTAXI has accrued a loyal and passionate fanbase, and it’s not hard to see why — especially with a deep-cut protagonist like Hiroshi Odokawa.

The taxi driver has taken home Crunchyroll’s award for Best Protagonist for a number of reasons, his eye-opening discussions with his clients being just one of many.

Best Antagonist: Eren Jaeger – Attack on Titan Final Season Part 1

Eren Jaeger is one of the more explosive anime characters out there, and his sudden shift in Attack on Titan the Final Season has won him Crunchyroll’s award for Best Antagonist.

We won’t spoil anything here, but if Part 2 is anything to go by — he might just take home this award again next year!

Best Fight Scene: Yuji Itadori & Aoi Todo VS Hanami – JUJUTSU KAISEN (cour 2)

Jujutsu Kaisen is hailed for having some of the smoothest fight scenes in Shounen anime right now, so it’s no surprise this show took home Crunchyroll’s Best Fight Scene award.

The hilarious brotherhood between Yuji and Aoi made for an uber-hype battle with big baddie Hanami.
