Along with listing their ranked Anime of the Season of Winter 2015, Anime Trending has as well conducted a category awards section where fans of the Facebook community could partake in further surveys from last season.

Vote tallies for their favourite characters, couple/ships and soundtrack were collected through a series of straw polls which lasted throughout majority of the season, while the latter such as genre, sequels, and leftovers were placed into a separate survey for a shorter time period. Note that total number of votes measures the amount of participants and won’t always equal the sum of its category.

I guess that’s about it for this season, Death ParadeAnsatsu Kyoushitsu and Saenai Heroine no Sodatekata were clear victors among Anime Trending’s category awards, having all claimed 3 titles under their straw polls (even if Karma’s receiving double-sided praise as ‘male of the season’). I’m fairly satisfied myself of the overall result, though I admittedly wouldn’t have minded if a few other shows from the Fall 2014 leftovers received a bit more attention than they did.
