Gimmick Awards 2019 – Is It Anime of the Year?

We watch a lot of anime around here at Scanline Media. A lot of it, we watch for Oops All Anime, our patron-only anime podcast! Because of that we watch anime every single week, and of course often multiple times a week recreationally. That gives us a lot of anime opinions. Here is a list of nominees for Is It Anime of the Year?: anime that were either new to 2019, or that neither Six nor Jen had seen before this year.
