Voting for TAAF 2021 has opened.

The Tokyo Anime Award Festival 2021 takes place early next year.

The event is an international film festival for animation held annual by the Association of Japanese Animation with a number of categories, some voted on by fans, others by a committee of professionals.

Initial voting has begun and includes all animated works from October 1st 2019, and September 30th, 2020

The top 20 films and the top 80 shows will be chosen by general public voting via connected Twitter accounts.

From those there will be a vote for 'Anime Fan Award' from general public votes, and 'Grand Prix' from those in the industry.

Due to the high amount of content, they don't show the rankings for everything (since that'd be hundreds and hundreds of listings.)

In the current preliminaries the TV section shows the ranks up to 90 (which is where Digimon Adventure: currently is.

The movie preliminaries section shows up to rank 30, with Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna currently at 28.

Then next up...

Digimon Adventure: Last Evolution Kizuna has been doing very well in China since it opened a few days ago.

It's already passed (converted) $11 million and is the largest anime film release of 2020 in China. This also has passed what it made in it's theatrical run in Japan.

This is yet another notch in the belt of the film, where it's been doing well in basically every country it's coming out in, whatever form that release takes.

Director Tomohisa Taguchi has drawn one of his fun doodles to celebrate!

Thanks to the Digimon Adventure 20th Twitter (2) (3) and AnimeNewsNetwork for the news.

And last up...

Digimon Adventure (the movie)- November 7th at 1pm and November 21st at 11am
