In 2006, the Japan Expo Awards rewarded for the first time the best productions of the year in several categories related to Japanese pop culture. This year, the Daruma Awards are back, with a new format for the Phoenix edition!
Among the new features, an award ceremony will be held in public at Japan Expo and broadcasted on our Twitch channel and the one of Team Manga, to celebrate the two categories of the year: manga and anime!
from Selections to the list of winners
In 2022, 23 prizes - the Daruma - are awarded to the best productions since 2019 in the manga and anime categories. To select the works in the running, a selection committee in charge of establishing the list of manga and anime in competition was composed. These specialists, media actors, specialized influencers and personalities of the manga and anime worlds have delivered a complete list of nominees in multiple categories!
But this year, the main jury is you, the Japan Expo audience! The Daruma entrust the Japan Expo community with the task of rewarding their favorite works among the selection previously made. Get ready, it will happen on our social networks!
At the end of the votes, the winners will be revealed during the award ceremony which will take place on July 15, 2022, on the Také stage at Japan Expo.
This year, Team Manga co-organizes the Daruma with Japan Expo. Team Manga is a news media, specialized in manga and Japanese animation. You can find them on social networks, on teammanga.fr but also through weekly shows on Twitch.
