Last night, Crunchyroll (a subscription service for anime fans) announced the winners of its third annual Anime Awards, which were presented by Devil May Cry 5.

Devilman Crybaby, which made its debut on Netflix early last month, took home the top honor of Anime of the Year. The series centers around Akira Fudo, who teams up with a demon to become Devilman in order to repel an invasion of other demons that want to take over the Earth. 

My Hero Academia was the biggest winner of the evening with five big victories for Best Antagonist, Best Boy, Best VA: English, Best Film, and Best Fight Scene.

Because Devil May Cry 5 sponsored the event, two limited edition Xbox Ones with skins inspired by the game were given away during the ceremony.

Attack on Titan (Best Ending Sequence), Dragon Ball Super (Best Continuing Series), Violet Evergarden (Best Animation), and That Time I Got Reincarnated As a Slime (Best Protagonist) were some of the other winners at the Anime Awards.

Masahiko Minami, president and producer of Bones Inc., received the ceremony's Industry Icon Award, "which recognizes influential figures who have meaningfully contributed to the art and industry of anime," per the official release obtained by SYFY WIRE.
