It’s been a year since the vampire anime series, Vampire Hunter D, was cancelled by Crunchyroll, the streaming service that runs the show, and fans have been wondering how it was going to end.
Now, the answers are finally out, and they’re pretty good.
Vampire Hunter was cancelled after a season, but that’s only because Crunchyrolling didn’t make the cut for the 2017 Anime Award.
It’s the first time Crunchyrolled didn’t win any award, and that was for the year-end special.
Crunchyrols biggest hit, the animated show My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, won a record six awards in 2017, including Best Animated Series, Best Animated Film and Best Musical, and it’s a pretty good year overall.
That’s why we’re excited to announce that we’ve been chosen to host the 2018 Anime Awards, which will air live from New York on October 23.
To celebrate, CrunchyRoll has teamed up with our friends at Anime Central, a website that provides fans with exclusive information on the latest anime.
Anime Central will provide live streaming coverage from the event starting at 8:30 a.m.
ET, with special guests including Executive Producer and creator of the show Spike Jonze and Executive Producer of the popular anime series Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Joss Whedon.
Fans will be able to tune in to watch the event, which features guest appearances from Crunchy.com and other CrunchyCrunch, including former host and Crunchy’s head of content, Matt Haggerty.
And, for those of you who don’t want to miss out, you can catch up on previous episodes by subscribing to the Crunchycast podcast, Crunch, and the show will be available on CrunchyTube, which is a new, curated collection of streaming anime.
So come join us for the show as we discuss everything that’s happening in the anime industry and ask the big questions.
But first, let’s talk about the season finale.
How did we do?
After nearly four seasons, we were one episode short of the best season yet.
We hit our stride and went from being the only show to be nominated for Best Animated Feature, Best Supporting Actress, and Best Sound Editing.
We’re just a few episodes away from becoming the only anime series to win Best Animated Television Series at this year’s Emmy Awards.
And thanks to our fan-favourite, Spike Jonz, we’re going to be back at it again in 2019.
Now that the awards season is officially over, we’ll be talking to our fans about what it was like to be a part of this incredible, wild ride.
We want to thank everyone for your support, and we hope you’re enjoying it.
