The Otaku Club Anime and Games Awards is back! This is a long running tradition of the Otaku Club, where we reflect on the popular sub-culture of the year. We take a look back at each of the seasonal anime this year had to offer and discuss how each of the major games lives up to its hype. From there, things started to come into focus. The anime and game that defines 2016 may be different for us than for you, but what a testament to a great year; that so many anime and games provided us entertaining experiences and with such quality. And that is when it matter the most.

Rkidz: It's finally the end of 2016. I had so much fun this year. Some of it is the best memory I had as an otaku, especially the Japan Trip. 2016 is also the year where The Otaku Club manages to publish the most posts since it first started, thanks to our hard-working author: Wolvenciel, Nas-sama and Patchy. All in all, I'm looking forward to what 2017 might bring us; its gonna be another amazing year.

Nas-sama: I hope there are cute single girl reading my posts.
