Season 2 of Vinland Saga is shunned at the Crunchyroll Anime Awards

This year, the major franchises stood out during the awards ceremony: The attack of the Titans signed a finale which won the award for best drama and best original soundtrack, Demon Slayer came away with the best animation, art direction and fantasy.

As for Jujutsu Kaisen, the series from the MAPPA studio is clearly the big premiere on the podium. The anime has indeed recovered 11 rewards in total, some of which are among the most prestigious. We can thus note those for the best action, the opening and ending, the best production… but season 2 above all surpassed itself by winning the title of anime of the year.

Even to the point of suffering consequences, as for the MAPPA studio and its working conditions for the animators of season 2 of Jujutsu Kaisen.
