Yes, it is real. The Freakin Anime Awards!
The first annual anime awards show by the Freakin Awesome Network. The top five anime of 2016. In non-ranking order, we got the top five chosen by the staff of Freakin Awesome Network, and the top five anime chosen by the audience of our site. And of course the award for anime of the year!
Okay, enough of my babbling. Here are the Freakin Anime Awards.
