Crunchyroll released its full list of nominees for what will be the largest and most inclusive edition of the Anime Awards to date.

Coming in behind the popular manga adaptation is the OLM-produced ODDTAXI, a mystery series surrounding a Walrus taxi driver and the clients he transports, which has an Anime of the Year nod as well as 11 other nominations. Attack on Titan's final season is starting off strong as well with 11 nods. Other Anime of the Year nominees include 86 EIGHTY-SIX, Ranking of Kings, and Sonny Boy.
