The 2019 WordPress Anime Awards: And The Winners Are…

Welcome to the results of the Second Annual WordPress Anime Awards! That’s right my pandas…you voted and the winners are in! I would like to thank everyone who voted and the judges who participated this year. Without all of you this project wouldn’t be where it is today. So…THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART ❤

I would like to make note that we did have a smaller turn out for voting this year due to some minor website issues. We fixed the problem about half way through the voting period but I apologize for any inconvenience this might have caused for you guys. I know the slow loading web page did deter people from voting this year and I can promise you guys this will not happen for 2020. I am hopeful for this years website project! With that all out of the way let’s get to the results! I know some of you will be surprised by some of these winners. I know I was 😀

  1. Hmm…I thought I said something about how the website was loading slow (I presume because of all the GIFs and videos) and it was impossible to access the videos without using right click -> Open in new tab, but maybe I never remembered to stop by and say so. So…there you go. My criticism, even if it’s late.

    …then again, I did discover Yamiyo from these Awards, so it wasn’t a bad experience in the end.


    1. That’s when we changed the site about half way through. We new the gifs were causing loading problems for some people. I didn’t have any issues on my end when I accessed it on my phone but if you had an older model phone stuff like that wouldn’t load. I have a plan for this year’s awards so we wont have these issues again!
