On Saturday, Crunchyroll held its 2023 Anime Awards ceremony. The event honored the best anime shows, films, and performances of 2022 and for the coveted Anime of the Year award, Studio Trigger’s Cyberpunk: Edgerunners took home the gold.

The one-season anime, which was such a hit that it boosted the sales and player count of the Cyberpunk 2077 game, also won the Best Voice Acting nomination for protagonist David Martinez, as played by Zach Aguilar.

Other winners during the awards show include Attack on Titan: The Final Season Part 2 (including Best Drama and Best Opening), Spy x Family (Best Comedy, Best New Show), and Jujutsu Kaisen 0 (Best Film). You can see the full list of winners down below.

Crunchyroll also announced a new initiative with Sony Music to bring music to its platform. As of today, subscribers can listen to song from artists such as Aimer, LiSA, and Asian Kung-Fu Generation. The app now features 100 full-length live concerts and 3,200 music videos, with extra curation features to be added in the future.

“We know that anime and music have always been intrinsically connected art forms,” said Crunchyroll’s chief content officer Asa Suehira. “From the early years of anime, music artists have worked closely with the anime producers to write lyrics and meaningfully integrate the music into the story. Crunchyroll wants to replicate that same synergy for our fans.”
