Just three months after this year’s celebration of Crunchyroll content, the anime streaming platform has announced details for the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2024. The orange carpet will roll out for the eighth time to celebrate the top creators, musicians, cast, and everyone else involved in bringing anime to life.
We’re only halfway through the year, and it has been a great one for anime fans. From the stunning visuals in Demon Slayer season 3, to the fleshed-out character arcs in My Hero Academia season 6, or the laugh-out-loud humor in Mashle: Magic and Muscles, there have been many aspects to enjoy from this year’s anime content. But what does Crunchyroll have planned to celebrate these shows and more?
When are the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2024?
The event is set to take place in Tokyo, Japan on March 2, 2024, for a world-class live ceremony at the luxurious Hotel Shin Takanawa. Voice actress Sally Amaki and entertainer Jon Kabira are returning to host the Crunchyroll Anime Awards 2024.
Amaki is known for her voice work as Carol Olston in Tomo-chan Is a Girl! and Kiriko in Overwatch 2. She is also a member of 22/7, a Japanese idol girl group. Kabira is notable as a commentator for sports like soccer, baseball, and golf, as well as various radio and music shows.

The Crunchyroll Anime Awards are the biggest night for anime content, and fans don’t want to miss out. Crunchyroll President Rahul Purini had this to say about the event returning to Japan:
“The Anime Awards are the first and only global awards show dedicated to the craft of anime, and we can’t wait to celebrate this year’s series, films, and music chosen by the global fans. It was an easy decision to return and allow global fans to share their love and admiration directly with anime’s creative community. We’re thrilled to spotlight the creators, storytellers and our trusted partners in Japan for all that they do for anime fans.”—Rahul Purini, President of Crunchyroll
This year’s celebration featured 18 million votes from supporters in more than 200 countries and territories—an obvious sign of the growing influence of the genre. With even more series set to release this summer, there’s bound to be even more fans joining the club.
