The Tokyo Anime Award Festival will be held this year in Ikebukuro in Tokyo from March 10-13. The festival will host a panel exhibition of the works of the 10 recipients, plus a special screening of a selection of their works. The recipients will receive their award in a ceremony on March 13.

The Tokyo Anime Award Festival launched the Meritorious Service Award in 2005 (when the festival was then called the Tokyo Anime Award and was part of the Tokyo International Anime Fair event). In 2014, when the Tokyo International Anime Fair and the Anime Contents Expo merged to form AnimeJapan, the festival launched as its own separate event.

Tokyo Anime Award Festival also grants awards to theatrical and television anime, as well as individual awards for different staff positions. Last year Love Live! The School Idol Movie won the Theatrical Animation Division award, Shirobako won the Television Animation Division Award, and Gintama won the Animation of the Year: Anime Fan Award.

The event's official website hosted the poll for this year's Animation of the Year: Anime Fan Award. The works listed in the poll had to screen or air between October 18, 2015, and October 15, 2016. The site had already used a previous fan poll to narrow down the works from 550 to 100, and fans could vote on their favorite from the top 100 list once a day. The poll ended on February 16.
