2010 Year-Ender – Fan Favourite Winners

Results are IN. Time to reveal the winners of the Fan-favourite Awards for 2010, Metanorn Readers style~

Last day of the year, woo~ I’m going overboard here to finish all I want to finish and in record time too; I gotta go out and have some fun. Our polls were quite successful this year but a prominent few emerge with few surprises. Though, hold your horses, it’s not over yet! XD

1. Anime OP of the Year

“My Soul, Your Beats!” by Lia (57% Votes)

Angel Beats! has always been amazing in the music department and somehow this win is not a big upset. Jun Maeda, you rock! Can you imagine Uragiri no Yuuyake got beaten with only one percent of vote though?! Yeah, popular voting is dangerous and sorry self and fans, who went aww seeing it not win. If only I could combine that with Complication but that would be cheating and I’m so not doing it! xD

2. Anime ED of the Year

“Trust Me” by Yuya Matsushita (66% Votes)

Sure shot winner from the get go. The beat is amazing and you can’t help but replay it on your playlist. Yuya sure came up with something different than his usual style; Trust me! The second and third place are not a surprise as well, NO, Thank You was not Don’t Say Lazy but still great, same for Brave Song.

3. Male Seiyuu of the Year

Ono Daisuke (77% Votes)

The majority has spoken and I can’t disagree. He is amazing and definitely one of the most successful seiyuu of current times. I’m also happy that my other favourites are pretty much in the top five. Amazing talent, hell yeah!

4. Female Seiyuu of the Year

Kana Hanazawa (69% Votes)

Again, without a doubt she deserves to win. I mean look at the amount of roles she has done in 2010! Does she even sleep?! Same for my other favourites in top three; I’m content.

5. Male Supporting Character of the Year

Shinra – Durarara!! (56% Votes)

Durarara!! has had the most fiercest following this year and you can see from the votes that it’s not going to diminish. Shinra has been a lovable character from the beginning and there was a time when I went WTF of what he’s been doing and stuff he hid from Celty but as they say, all is fair in love and war.

6. Female Supporting Character of the Year

Celty – Durarara!! (66% Votes)

You see what I was saying, right? Not to mention, Celty is an awesome Headless Rider and one of the most human, supernatural being in animu world. You just can’t help but love her. Also, supporting characters made for each other. xD

7. Villainous Character of the Year

Orihara Izaya – Durarara!! (83% Votes)

Oh how appropriate. As BL said, Izaya was at the top for a reason. He’s just so evil yet amazing. Yes, the only one I would write a full name of.

8. Male Character of the Year

Shizuo – Durarara!! (60% Votes)

*FANGIRL SQUEEE* Ahem. I love this character to pieces and seeing him win is a double woo for me. Fortissimo of Ikebukuro indeed! I was not expecting this because this specific list was SO HARD to decide on!!! You can see from the top five how Durarara!! has three main protagonists one after the other.

9. Female Character of the Year

Kanade – Angel Beats! (45% Votes)

Wow, another close call and this time around between Angel Beats!, Durarara!! and K-On!! (just look at those exclamation marks pile up 0.0). Anri and K-On!! girls got beaten by Kanade by one mere percent. Though interestingly, Anri and Kanade both are voiced by Kana Hanazawa. Anyway, Tenshi wins!

10. Anime of the Year

Chotto matte~ out of the 10 categories, Durarara!! won in six categories?! That is what you call a fan favourite and the majority has spoken! ‘nuff said.

    omg. DRRR everywhere. @_@

  2. […] POLLS ARE CLOSED NOW. Results are HERE! […]

  3. raionhime says:

    Yeahh, go Durarara go~
    It’s my favorite, so it’s great to see it winning <3 Btw, cause Ono is Shizuo, and Hanazawa is Anri, Durarara sort of won in 8 categories 8D

  4. Miyu says:

    It’s honestly been the best anime this year with it’s awesome original unique characters and not to mention lots of bishies.
    Deserving first place ^^ (wow 6 categories)

  5. cassi says:

    Wow! 😀 It’s Durarara!! and then the rest! Lol

  6. Foshizzel says:

    Durarara!! all the way! Wooooooooooot 2010 was a great year! hope 2011 is just as good.

    And yay for Angel Beats! can’t wait for season two.

    Good job on all the lists Kyokai!

  7. Captain says:

    Omo! I still can’t believe that FMA isn’t even on this list, AT ALL. It just seems somewhat forgotten on Metanorn.

    Other than that, though, I’m pretty happy with the results. Sugita’s on the list! -points- I’m putting it hands down that Shizuo beat Izaya, though. He’s the best Male character, Izaya’s just an annoying character :> Durarara is so overliked xD People, Ikebukuro does NOT have gangs, honest. There’s nice street scenery, though.

    Looking at the animes of the year, though, I realize that my top 10 is completely different from that. Nobody seems to like Nodame much xD

    • Kyokai says:

      How can I forget about FMA: Brotherhood when I blogged it so lovingly? =P As I said earlier, I only included the titles that started airing in 2010, so FMA is already out as it started airing in 2009.
      Drrr! is awesome and Shizuo’s my waifu~ Also, I love Nodame Cantabile, it will be on my list, no worries! ^^

      • cassi says:

        So that’s why Kimi ni Todoke wasn’t mentioned. I see.

      • Captain says:

        ..I guess it won’t hurt that it’s on my list.
        Oh god. I counted it because it ended in 2010 so..so.. *slaps self*
        Heehee, you can have Shizuo. I was so obsessed with him at one point in time, lol. Nodame!♥

    • Ness says:

      My top 10 will be different as well hehe. Also, I <3 Nodame. One of those animes that I can rewatch various times (which I have a couple) and the dorama is just as great.. still waiting for the last few movies for it to be subbed though.

      • Captain says:

        Ness, you and I always seem to be the different ones xD
        Nodame for the win!♥ Deer meat and.. and gosh, the music.
        The movies were epic, heehee.

  8. Namika says:

    wow O_O out of 10 categories, Durarara won in 6. Well…. it should have been expected))) Also, the favorite main male character of the year being Shizuo ^__^
    Looking forward to the special edition!!!! >3<
    LOL it would be funny to make a "Most annoying character of the year" or the most WTF moment of the year poll XD

  9. Sebz says:

    darn! Kamiya was close xDDD but at least there’s izaya

    YAY 2010!

  10. A-chan says:

    Kamiya was so close D: <3
    I have to agree Durarara was the best with Arakawa, Angel beats etc :3 !!! GREAT <3

  11. BlackLagoon187 says:

    Hahah DRRR totally deserved all its wins, however I felt that Angel Beats might have been able to pull off what DRRR has if it were a longer anime.

    And a Happy New Year to all (Hong Kong Time) >__<

  12. Hime says:

    Durarara sure cleaned up shop! Can’t say I’m surprised. Shinra <3

    Have a good new year everybody!

  13. Alynn says:

    Durarara! rarara!
    I’m content with the results, hoo-rah!
    Happy new year Metanorn!

  14. amado says:

    durarara novel: hell yes. the anime: eh not so much…

    well im still satisfied with the results, I like them just not really my top pick…

  15. Amutofan123 says:

    All my favorites won! 😀 Let’s hope that 2011 brings us just as much amazing anime as 2010 did! Now then, I am going to go fangirl over Shizu-chan.

  16. amado says:

    oh and update from anni_fiesta, chapter 5 of vol.6 is up.

    and happy new year to everyone!

  17. Overcooled says:

    *facepalm* I can’t believe it’s THIS popular. Seriously? It looks like all we watch here are Angel Beats! and DRRR!!. XD Oh well, they’re some of my top shows so I can’t complain. =w=

  18. Xiao says:

    And Durarararararara!! PWNS! CAN WE HAVE OUR SECOND SEASON NOW?!?! >83

    All the results were the ones I expected except Shinra. I think he owes it to the anime he’s in. Otherwise, he wouldn’t have gotten that many votes. Just my opinion, though.

    • amado says:

      well if you read the “LOVEY-DOVEY PRATTLES OF AN UNDERGROUND DOCTOR” in anni_fiesta, you’ll understand…

  19. Trusx says:

    I didn’t expect much less from Durarara!! I love it, and I’m so f’in happy that it won 6 out of 10, not to mention that both Seiyus worked on Durarara!!
    And Angel Beats! OP is awesome, but… I wanted Maigoinu to Ame no Beat deserves more votes!

  20. Dan-go says:

    SO MUCH DURARARA! dislikeeeeeeeey, comeon metanorn have you no individuality?

    • Disco says:

      I would have to agree with you, I mean I have seen some better anime then Durarara this year and *sigh* I think that if Durarara was aired earlier in the year no one would be talking about it this much.
