From the 12th Annual Shorty Awards

Anime Awards: Global to the Max

Finalist in Localization

Audience Honor in Localization

About this entry

The Crunchyroll Anime Awards is a global celebration that honors the best of anime and drives fan and industry recognition, respect, and excitement. The Anime Awards have been available for worldwide participation and viewing in previous years; however, localization hasn’t always been a priority. Google translate was used for translation, assets were U.S.-centric and the bulk of marketing resources were focused on growing domestic viewership. 

For the fourth annual awards show, Crunchyroll prioritized international growth to scale and engage fans in new ways and establish Crunchyroll as the leader in anime worldwide. To accomplish this, the Crunchyroll Audience Development (AudDev) team created channels of communication between eight regional teams and headquarters in San Francisco to ensure all assets were translated, localized, and implemented by each local community expert. 

Crunchyroll’s objectives included the following:
