Episode 63 - The CrunchySalt Awards 4: NOT GOOD

Dear Crunchyroll,
We’re not mad at you. We’re just very, very disappointed in you and your recent behavior. On a night where you were set to give honor and praise to the best that the anime season had to offer in 2019, it left many an audience member feeling conflicted and, in some cases, dissatisfied. And in our case, it left us feeling rather annoyed, irritated, and left with little else to say other than “what were you thinking?” Our one hope is that you will listen to us and our special guest, Megan from Dub Talk, and you will understand our frustrations and our disappointment with your most recent presentation of the popularity contest that you label as an awards show.

We like you all, and we just want to see you be the best that you can be. But that awards show you put on? That is far from the best. And we know you all can do so much better. Here’s to hoping that you all will learn from this for next year.
