A Look at the Sakuga and Animation of 2016

A Look at the Sakuga and Animation of 2016

Welcome one, welcome all! It’s that time of the year once again, where we wonder how we managed to spend all that holiday money already while steeling ourselves mentally for the inevitable hangover on New Year’s Day. For those of us who like to dabble in a bit of sakuga shenanigans, it’s also that time of the year where Kraker2k bullies us into compiling our thoughts on the shows and people who stood out most throughout the year, a process fondly dubbed as the Sakuga Bowl. While Kraker’s gotten old and doesn’t have it in him to take up the mantle anymore, the Sakuga Bowl has become an esteemed tradition, and thus the show must go on. This year’s show features not only familiar faces from years past, but other notable names who have been making a splash in the ever-growing sakuga pond this year; all in the name of luring our rivals into a false sense of security before we wipe them out bringing more voices to the table.

For those attending for the first time, the award process is split up into eight categories:

— Best Episode
— Best Show
— Best Movie
— Best OP
— Best ED
— Animator Discovery
— Unexpected Animation
— Recommendation

Simple, yet effective. The only real guidelines this year were to try and keep each entry close to 500 words, solely due to the fact that last year’s was long (that went as well as you’d imagine). With that being said, let’s get this show started! Sit tight, approach the scorching ping pong girl if you’re feeling chilly, avoid the vomiting water goddess, and pray that the #1 hero can fend off the villain before we have to cancel everything.
