Results seen as “surprising”, Anime rating for 2010 was Excellent according to voters.
Otaku’s Verdict (OV), the Premiere online-based Anime Poll conducted by ZEN Otaku Honbu, has released its Official Lists of Winners for its 2010 Edition, and the results turned out quite surprising.
For the first time in the history of OV, many voters believed that the anime situation in 2010 was excellent, a far cry from last year’s rating which was good.
Subsequently, TV5 and ANIMAX Philippines snatched most, if not all, the Major Programming Categories for Terrestrial and Cable TV categories, respectively.
On the Major Popularity Categories, Wendy Villacorta-De Leon won as Dubbing Director of the Year for the TV5 anime CLANNAD. Nica Rojo, meanwhile, bagged the Female Anime Dubber of the Year for her performance as Edward Elric in Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, another TV5 anime. HEROtv got the Male Anime Dubber of the Year through Mark Muñoz for his portrayal as the lead character, Lelouch of Code Geass (Seasons 1 and 2).
In the events side, PSICOM Publishing got the two event awards for Otaku Expo 2010 (Minor Anime Event of the Year) and Ozine Fest 2010 (Major Anime Event of the Year). Level-Up Games, on the other head, won two awards for Level-Up! LIVE 2010 as the Gaming Event of the Year and Grand Chase – Season 3 as the Online Game of the Year.
Former ABS-CBN President and CEO Federico M. Garcia, Jr. or more commonly known as “FMG” was the first recipient of the Otaku’s Verdict IMPACT Award, Garcia was cited for his invaluable achievement for Philippine Anime scene when he was the head of GMA-7 during the Marcos Era when the network aired Voltes V. He was also the first to initiate the use of Filipino language on all foreign series, which includes anime.
The results were announced during a live audio webcast last January 16.
