PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it my friends. The winners of the Crunchyroll Anime Awards for 2020. As I’ve already admitted, I’m not too up on this stuff despite having some interest in seeing a lot of it. Truth be told, if you are one of the people in the same predicament as I am, I guess the best place to start is by looking to see who won an awards show such as this one. It doesn’t hurt to go with a show or film that took home an award after all. So as I close this narrative up I wonder what you thought about the winners. Did your favorite win out or were they cheated of the honor? I’d be interested in learning what you think about that so do please chime in down below. See you next time.
