I'm sorry but can someone explain to me why My Hero Academia is getting only a 13 episode adaption? I mean it has way too much focus on itself this past month and so much recognition that I'm just curious as to my the adaption is so lacking in length?

I thought that 13 episode adaptions were a safe way to adapt a series and to minimize risk. But that way things are going for My Hero Academia it seems like it is a sure thing, so my so little faith it that the adaption is basic level?

Crossing my fingers for Noragami. It's an excellent, well paced manga with memorable characters and great art. Bring it home.

Ask Studio Bones. They rarely make 24 episode series anymore. My Hero Academia has more than enough content for 24 episodes.

I wonder why they stopped doing the Children's category...

I hope Noragami wins. It deserves it.

General - i am leaning towards Golden Kamuy since it already won the Taisho award(Competed with Bokumachi there too)

Shounen - I would imagine BnHa or Noragami

Just curious, but is there any reason why Kodansha calls it the "General" category instead of having separate awards for Seinen or Josei? Maybe "General" is for all non-Shonen titles?

Anyway, I've only read Ajin, which is pretty much action-packed if nothing else.

Looks like BokuMachi should win the General Manga category.

Ask Studio Bones. They rarely make 24 episode series anymore. My Hero Academia has more than enough content for 24 episodes.

The animation studio doesn't decide how many episodes to produce. That's up to the producer(s) (in this case, Toho). Besides, the only place that that length was stated was on a French streaming website. It's guaranteed that it's going to be longer than 13 episodes, but it might be a repeated split-cour where every Spring and Fall has MHA, which I prefer to the Ass Class and Food Wars model of having a continuous half-year on air and a continuous half-year off air.

Noragami should get this, and Konodoori (tough choice there), Nijiiro Days because it's nice to see a shojo from the boy's point of view.
